    Cladding in bathroom or tiiling

    I looked at the cladding but think I will go with tiles. I might have the ceiling cladding slats about 4 inches wide which look good, a neighbour has them in the bathroom.

    Climate change protests

    Protesters would be better off protesting against things like the flight BA are starting in December than targeting motorists who the majority of will simply be trying to get to work. From December, British Airways will operate a daily round-trip between two Gulf destinations that are only 54 miles apart and connected by road. It would be quicker by road than flying the 54 miles surely. BA is extending its current Heathrow-Bahrain service to Dammam in Saudi Arabia. It is the nearest Saudi city to the island nation of Bahrain, to which it is linked by a causeway. British Airways currently has a dedicated limousine link meeting its flights at Bahrain and taking passengers to Dammam, scheduled to take 90 minutes. It is coded as BA ”flight” 8499. But starting on 1 December, a Boeing 777 with four classes will replace the road connection, flying only the same distance as London to Brighton. BA flight 125 will first depart from Heathrow and fly to Bahrain in about six hours. Many passengers will leave the aircraft, but Dammam-bound passengers will stay onboard the aircraft on the ground for an hour. The jet, weighing over 150 tons, will take a further 50 minutes to reach the Saudi city, including the aircraft’s taxiing time at either end. The average speed is 65mph, even though the 777’s cruising speed is 555mph. Boeing’s published figures show that the aircraft will use at least 1.5 tons of fuel between take-off and a height of 10,000 feet. The aircraft is unlikely to fly any higher. When the fuel is burned, the CO2 emissions will be 5 tons.
  3. I started digging the beds in the greenhouse and clearing the roots out and noticed a lot of ants when I dug the soil. I remembered had seen them before and forgotten about them, they certainly didn't affect the tomato plants last year, anyone know what is the best way of getting rid of them? I don't want to be putting ant powder down near where the plants are going to be growing.

    Surely it could only ever be a true champions league if only Champions were in it, not teams that finished 4th.
  7. Can't understand some people, why can't they make their own coop and buy a couple of hens rather than steal someone else's coops and pets. Bet a decent coop could be made for £30 and then 4 ex battery hens £20. Not easy things to carry away a couple of chicken coops they must have had a largish van, is there any cctv near to you?

    Paul Scholes has left his role as Oldham Athletic manager after just 31 days, he wasn't sacked he has just left the club. He says "It unfortunately became clear that I would not be able to operate as I intended and was led to believe prior to taking on the role," I bet there are a few managers that know that feeling well.

    Water utility bill

    I would imagine they still do but you can't change your mind after a certain time, think it is a year, after that the meter stays. I think I saved about £200 a year going over to a meter. I pay more for the waste water than what I use, my water is supplied by ST but my waste is dealt with by YW.
  12. Yes, remember the problems Terry and Bob had trying to avoid an England football score all those years ago.😁😁

    Shamima Begum

    I read that she didn't want the child to come here alone, so can only assume from that she was hoping that she would be allowed to come back with the child. It is sad a child has died but that is not down to the Home Secretary or the British Government, it is down to the decisions she made.

  18. Seems like the Dutch and Spanish are realising that the UK leaving will impact them, maybe if those in charge of the EU thought about the impact Brexit would have on other EU countries and how it would affect them, then maybe they would not have been so keen to clamp down on the UK. There is also a link on the page you sent Apelike saying France are worried as they are the biggest exporters of apples to the UK. Christiane Lambert of the FNSEA union said French wine and spirits producers would be hit hardest, as their sector had a €1.3bn (£1.1bn; $1.5bn) annual surplus in trade with the UK. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-46944358

  20. Motorists are being hit with higher parking charges by the council, they are raising parking charges by up to 30%. Is this just going to drive more people out of the city and to Meadowhall? New prices will be in force from April 1st and will be 30 percent higher than before, meaning a standard first residential permit will now cost £46.80. Parking will increase from £1 for the first half hour to £1.30 from Monday to Saturday from 8am to 8.30pm, or £2 for up to four hours or on Sundays (up from £1 per day) in central zone one. Parking in central zone two will increase from £1 per hour to £1.30 per hour from 8am to 8.30pm Mondays to Saturdays; £2 from 4,30pm to 8.30pm and £2 for Sunday parking. https://www.thestar.co.uk/our-towns-and-cities/sheffield/parking-charges-increase-in-sheffield-1-9617118?utm_campaign=Sheffield Star - Daily RSS&utm_source=hs_email&utm_medium=email&utm_content=70262651&_hsenc=p2ANqtz--22rRAPtkiheNP7JGRGmJAlLfHMmWBQMlRdt7nsabJtvITvN2Lhdt88ZhULYHgakP2x7TMPBHrZYNA9lolri5tHISNZg&_hsmi=70262651

    Sheffield wednesday accounts for year end 2018

    A prime example of spending big to go straight back up are Stoke City, according to https://www.transferleague.co.uk/stoke-city/english-football-teams/stoke-city-transfers they have spent £54,850,000 and received £24,730,000 so they have actually spent £30,120,000, be interesting to see what they spend come the summer transfer window. Players Purchased Fee Players Sold Fee Net Total Points Position Season 18/19 Adam Federici Undisclosed Dominic Telford Free Oghenekaro Etebo £6,350,000 Marc Muniesa £4,500,000 Tom Ince £10,000,000 Ramadan Sobhi £5,700,000 Sam Clucas £6,000,000 Xherdan Shaqiri £13,000,000 James McClean £5,000,000 Lee Grant £1,530,000 Benik Afobe £12,000,000 Ryan Woods £6,500,000 Ryan Sweeney Free Danny Batth Free Sam Vokes £9,000,000 PTS POS Season Total £54,850,000 £24,730,000 £30,120,000 Season 2017/18 they spent Net total of £15,250,000 Season 2016/17 they spent Net total of £29,750,000 I assume the last two seasons when they were in the PL do not count towards the FFP in the Championship.

  23. Just reading that our MPs are to get a 2.7% (£2000) pay rise on April 1st, a very appropriate date as they are taking the people for fools. All in it together my A**e, as Jim Royal aka Ricky Tomlinson would say. https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/breaking-mps-inflation-busting-pay-14067538
