Depends on the exact circumstances, were they on a busy road with other traffic? Probably not a great idea. However I've given all my kids their first experience of driving sat on my lap on very quiet residential or private roads at sub 5mph. That's also ... [ more ]
Actually just remembered when I was a child my father was a flight engineer for BA and would often arrange for me to take co pilots seat at the controls of passenger planes in flight. Sure that would cause a rant or two now!
It is good to see this problem is being dealt after such a long time, and whilst I can understand the need to divert the traffic flow; I don't see why the diversion and temporary traffic signals were left in place and operating over the whole Bank ... [ more ]

Have you tried the Honest John technical forums yet? I have seen many many requests, probably hundreds, for radio codes, all answered there.
had a look, but again need the serial number off the side of the radio to get the code!

Sounds interesting and will try and make it, work permitting. I'm not sure if I have an appropriate POWER themed DVD as the movie I would have selected, the Great Dictator, is currently at a friends. p.s. I've checked out your link and facebook pages and ... [ more ]
Dear Diceman, I've never seen the Great Dictator, that would be a great one to watch. The LINK welcomes everyone, whether you have faith or none, it's a place for the curious and a place for sharing ideas. Hope you can make it.
Dear Robert, How many do you require and can you collect from Sproughton? Suzanne
I could do with at least 6 and I can collect. Robert.
I did check Maplins last year but they couldn't help. Thank you for the suggestion though, Suzanne
Hi Suzanne I bought an FM aerial for my old amp about 3 weeks ago; female plug because the amp had the male connector. These are a standard type of connector used in many devices: ... [ more ]
I beg to differ with you I've had four incidents in the last eight years each of which was a vehicle hit me in my HGV I do know what I'm talking about where these vehicles are concerned as l have been driving HGV for over 30 years. One of my friends ... [ more ]
The figures are DFT stats, the key point though which we both seem to agree is that HGV's are not a suitable vehicle to share the road with vulnerable road users. Their design is the result of poor legislation and changes are scheduled (delayed by Volvo ... [ more ]
It surprised me that replacement boilers are sometimes funded for people not usually eligible due to the means test! You should be toasty next winter!

Hi everyone, Our highways team are responsible for maintaining most of the highways in Suffolk, including highway verges. If you have any queries or suggestions for verges which can be improved, please use our highways reporting tool to give us all ... [ more ]
Thanks for your response Nicola, but the problem we have is in trying to deter motorists from parking on the grass verges, BEFORE they cause damage, not after. There have been numerous site inspections in Cheltenham Avenue over the last 12 months. The ... [ more ]

I do not remember so many before. We always have quite a few, but this seems exceptional. I am fortunate enough to have an old garden vac, ands filled two black bin bags almost full just from our smallish back garden! is this some weird alien invasion ... [ more ]
I've had loads of Sycamore seedlings too - they are everywhere much worse than usual. Maybe the conditions are just right for most of them to grow this year -what an awful thought a lawn full of trees!! Better get back out there & pull them all up!
interesting point Ray, however, as sad as it is, it does not make anti-social criminal activity correct?
No it doesn't. But you asked 'Where did it all go wrong?' and I've tried to answer that and I think we are all at fault. Where we go now is a much harder question. You are lucky that Jamestown Boulevard has large open spaces between flats/houses - ... [ more ]

I travel from Ipswich to Stratford St Mary every day and have noticed that permanent speed cameras have been installed on both sides of the carriageway in the Stratford half of the 40mph zone. Colchester bound - first camera is just after Woodgates ... [ more ]
UPDATE: I went to Colchester and saw that there is another permanent camera on each side of the A12 near the bridge that goes over the A12 on the Essex side of the Essex/Suffolk border.
I used to work in various opticians. Please don't use fairy liquid. It can cause the coating on the leases to break down. If they are polycarbonate (which they would only be if rimless or safety glasses, regular plastic lenses are not made of ... [ more ]
I used fairy liquid on my coated specs and it took the coating off I use spray from spec savers
