    I have those throughout my house, can turn off the bedside lights from the bedroom door when the wife leaves them on. Also have uplighter floor lamps in the lounge for a soft effect when watching the TV.

    Watching 19.30 BBC4 Wonders of the Great Barrier Reef presenter Iolo WIlliams grabbing the reef multiple times in the first 7 minutes.
    Can't watch it any more.

    The EU organises it that everyone in Europe hates us.

    That's entirely down to us, I'll have you know.

    Bloody Remoaners, giving credit to the EU for our own work.

    Actually, it seems Europe doesn't hate us; if it thinks of us at all it as an irrelevance.

    My rear tyre now has an appropriate amount of air in it at a reasonable pressure as well. I ended up with a new tyre and a new tube just to make sure I didnít get another puncture if there was something embedded in the tyre causing the issue. Whist staying at t he hotel I met some other motorcyclists one of whom had converted the tyres on my type of bike to tubeless successfully and easily - saving me the hassle of buying new tubeless wheels and new tyres - a nice conversation that has saved me the best part of £1k. Happy days.

    Are you on the old BM? I thought only cheap shit pushbikes had inner tubes.
    There are only two things that are infinite, the universe and Tory corruption and I am not sure about the universe.

    As far from the sea as we could be, except when we can actually get in it.

    Puncturesafe/Ultraseal would've saved you all the trouble, even in a tubed tyre probably.

    Yerr - mostly due to the lack of food standards which is why they use mayo on sandwiches not butter because the butter is awful. And it doesn't matter where you go because everything is to the same (crap) standards and they confuse quantity with quality.

    The coffee is truly sh*** and thats deliberate - even in a "barista craft coffee shoppe" its tastes like weak nescafe - we spent weeks trying to get something that was drinkable and failed miserably. SWMBO is a coffee nut and travels a lot - most places she can get a fix but for the US she takes a gadget called a wacaco which you fill with boiling water (and coffee obv) and pump like a 15 year old boy in the bathroom to produce acceptable but not great esspresso.

    Yes - when I did big trips on the bike to places where there wasn't any back up thats what I used - even if it fails it controls the leak to a manageable problem. If you go tubeless you can get a (almost certainly completely illegal) tyre fix kit as used throughout the third world but with proper rubber plugs rather than bits of old underpants with which you can fix most punctures without demounting the tyre.
