Re: New member

Welcome Roger! Don't worry about getting around the website. If you get yourself in a tangle, just look at the top left corner - it says "Board index", with a picture of a house. That's kind of like a reset button. Sounds like you've got a real head start in terms of your abilities, from w...

Re: How is everyone dealing with rising prices?

That's great, Kiwififer, good feedback and a good package too. I'm finding I have a lot of food only just in date - mega jars of beetroot and olives, mainly :lol: so my meals are a bit strange at the moment :lol: but I'm rationalising the space as I go. And this is the first ever year that I've harv...

Re: Binoculars

Thanks for this, Andy! I was a bit impatient :oops: :lol: and ended up buying yesterday, an Opticron, same stats as the one you linked to, 10 x 50, but I think they're likely to be much lighter, they're only about 260g, £30 so not too bad. Plus I can't get to Lidl, and I want them in my grubby littl...

Re: Binoculars

Took out the half of my monocular, the 12 x 40 part: the magnification is great, of course, but holding it is another matter altogether. Heavy, and just difficult to keep centred. So I've just bought the Opticron 10 x 25. That's for the days out - I'll probably be able to use the monocular from the ...

Re: Binoculars

Red, thats a great article, thank you so much! I checked out those binocs on Amazon - I'd really like the Celestron, simply because it's a brand I know so well from astronomy telescopes, but it's heavy - 0.62kg, too much for me to be carting about all day. One of the Opticrons sounds a better deal, ...

Re: Winter 2022 what are you doing to get ready

So .... the spring clamps are to put the duvet onto the curtain pole? Yep. Thanks! I'm a bit slow on understanding stuff sometimes. And it's hot :oops: I now have 3 windows with tension rods in, supported by the tension and by hooks that were easy to place. The window that's going to give the troub...

Re: Hello From Hertfordshire

Hello Beegood, welcome to the forum. Just seconding what jansman said, really. Have a look through the forum, see what feels right for you, check your county/district/metropolitan wotsit area for the resilience recommendations, fire brigade, insurance company, that sort of thing. You honestly don't ...

Re: Binoculars

Just found some that are amazing value - BRGOOD, 12 x 25, £17.99. Detailed reviews look good. I'm not going to go to £800!

Re: Mental Health.

Arzosah...I think its a way of other people wanting to say something but not knowing what... That's such a concise summary, GeeGee - yes, people don't know what to say, so they say *that*. People don't get it ..even the lady at mcmillan when I spoke to her about looking at mr GGs weight loss The qu...
