Re: What Are You Listening To Right This Minute?

Yes, I enjoyed that too. Surprised that McCartney didn’t get a cameo in it.

This sparked a few random observations. 1) Despite not categ...

Re: driving licenses

The delays seem to happen when there’s no existing photo available from the passport office. As I say, mine came back last month in four days.

Re: driving licenses

Having heard horror stories about applications taking months to be processed I sent of my online renewal on the maximum 90 days before my 70th next January.

On the efficiency of trains.

There’s a bloke I follow on Twitter who is a driver with Eurostar. He put a tweet up today which amazed me, so I thought it might be of interest: “ Near Maidstone on the high-speed line just past the motorway services at Junction 8, there is a short cut-and-cover tunnel adjacent to the M20 which is ...

Re: The Audio-Talk Motorcycling thread.

Too true. I REALLY don't want to share my hifi with the neighbours but so many motorcycle enthusiasts seem to believe that in general we, the people, will be impressed by the noise. In Beds, at the mo, the style is a black beamer or audi blowing back or whatever the term is as they rocket from zero...

Re: General health matters.

First two jabs Jane and I had were AZ, the third last Friday was Pfizer. On Monday we both had flu jabs. Absolutely no side effects from any of them for either of us. We seem to have been dead lucky!

I’ve been following Tim Spector for some time. He’s professor of Genetic Epidemiology at King’s College, and is currently running the ZOE Covid study and app (if you’re not signed up to that, then you should be!), but he also specialises in the epidemiology of dietary issues and has some interesting...

Not silly at all, Ray. You lost a loved family member and it hurts. My sympathies.

The headline technology of using solar panels you'd think would be a complete non-starter, but it's really all about increasing efficiency, and using...
