Re: General health matters.

I’ve been following this and the vitamin D thread with interest, especially having read a couple of interesting and very revealing books by Tim Spector. He’s a professor in genetic epidemiology at Bart’s, but these books are more about food and nutrition, and why nearly all the information we get ab...

Re: Nothing In Particular

The hardest of days. There are two little mounds at the bottom of our garden where the current occupant plays. Both left an unfillable gap when they left, as will Isla in due course but all three enriched our lives immeasurably and were loved from the first day to the last. Although we grieve when t...

Bespoke furniture

Some years ago my favourite niece trained as a cabinet maker and has now set up a bespoke furniture business with her partner in Skipton. It never occurred to me before that there might be an audio connection but she recently built a beautiful console for a musician client to house all his mixing eq...

When another friend turned up with one my mate asked to have a go. He was 6’ 4”, and found it completely impossible to get in. I’ve never seen anyone loo...

Re: Transparent Telly

Am I the only one who thinks this is a brilliant idea? I don’t watch a huge amount, so most of the time the TV is a huge hideous black thing dominating the corner of the sitting room, so this would be a big improvement. In the mean time I’m thinking of ordering one of these: https://www.samsung.com/...
