    Isle of Grain's chimney stack to be demolished on Sept 7th

    Fred Dibnah fans and general demolition enthusiasts, this iconic part of our view over the Estuary from Leigh to Shoebury is finally getting blown to bits next week! Must admit, I had no idea it was so tall - think I'm going to take the morning off to watch it go...
  2. Getting a new bathroom

    Hi all, We're thinking it's time to upgrade our bathroom. It's old and worn and although a reasonable size it doesn't have a separate standalone shower (which we'd love). In one corner there's a chimney breast coming through, and attached to this is the old airing cupboard which now houses the...
  3. Damp issue

    In the top room of our victorian terrace, we have a mouldy-damp patch at the top of the chimney stack in the room. There's a photo link below here: http://i43.tinypic.com/2h822jn.jpg When we moved into the house over 2 years ago we thought it was a historic issue and had the room re...
  4. DIY question

    Doing up a bedroom in our house. The chimney breast from the dining room comes up through this room. There are two sockets on the chimney breast, attached outside the wall using mounting boxes like this... We're getting the walls skimmed and so I thought I could set the sockets into the wall...

    Con/Lib agreement in full - in summary

    Why don't I feel Christmassy yet?.....

    .....because I've realise what a ******* Santa is, that's why. I mean, aside from the dubious idea of an elderly man entering the bedrooms of sleeping children and emptying his sacks, what else does he do? Think about it: 1) Parking offences - how many parking tickets must he pick up with his...

    Score It, O'Hara!

    Someone really needs to find out what Harry Redknapp is saying at half-time, because if we can patent and market it, we'll make a fortune. After an abject first half at White Hart Lane, Tottenham burst into life in the second, scoring four goals in twenty minutes, helped in no small way by the...

  9. Keegan classics

    if only so we can hear more pearlers like these: 'It's like a toaster, the ref's shirt pocket. Every time there's a tackle, up pops a yellow card.' 'The ref was vertically 15 yards away.' 'There are two schools of thought on the way the rest of this half is going to develop; everybody's got...

    Top by Christmas ?

    Forget the 'performances' of the last two weeks ( which I was fortunate to miss ) - they are confined to history . LeonC is back and owes us big time - he also has a bit to prove if he is to be worth the terms he alluded to a few weeks ago . In him we have one of the few players in this...

    Toughest quiz of the year

    average score is 2 (I think I've got 4). From the Guardian: "Scire ubi aliquid invenire possis, ea demum maxima pars eruditionis est" 1. In 1903: 1 who founded the WSPU? 2 what speed limit was imposed on motor cars? 3 who was the Sublime Paralytic, who died of cholera? 4 whose weekly...
