  3. 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...

    Unlikely plumbing disasters.

    X-Files Special: Prince of Wales really is a Charlie

    From Mark Steyn writing on NRO: According to His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, we only have 96 months left to save the planet. I’m impressed. 96 months. Not 95. Not 97. July 2017. Put it in your diary. Usually the warm-mongers stick to the same old drone that we only have ten years left...

    The fbm view and ratings

    AGAINST ALL ODDS Years ago, when Southend were regularly plumbing the depths of the division now known as league 2, I used to get some funny looks when people found out I was a season ticket holder at Roots Hall.  “What on earth for?” they used to quip, “Surely you must play ‘Spot the Crowd’...
