    Seasonal tyres

    Seconded for Crossclimates; we've got them on a couple of cars and find them fine. The winters have been too mild in the last couple of years to know how they perform in the snow though.
  2. At least you're alive to whinge.
  3. And me. Can't you die if you have too many paracetamol?
  4. The boughs can also do a lot of damage. I suggest getting a tree surgeon in as, when we did, he identified some of the areas of risk and rectified them. A useful by product is that we still have loads of free firewood. If you're in a conservation area he can also do the relevant paperwork.
  5. No. I've never driven one so wondered what was so good about them. Some of those attributes could also be applied to the Peugeot 205 which we ran for 3 years and eventually plan to get another. edit : so how does the ride and handling compare to the Pug?
  6. As Junkman is no longer on here can someone please explain the appeal of R16s? I can understand them being preferred to Maxis but they seem to attract an inordinate amount of praise.
  7. I'd quite like a convertible - do they rust as badly as the hatch seems to?
  8. By what I remember his is a 68, which is something like a one year only version so getting some parts is horrendous. I can sympathise with him on this as my T2 is a 68 which has a lot of one year only , or even 6 month only in the case of the rear brakes, parts.
  9. Just ask him, he seems a pretty straightforward sort of bloke.
  10. I think that he's still alive and is on the Darkwob, along with a few other ex forum members.
  11. If you have a compost bin near the house it might be worth moving it. That's where I think some of ours came from, although there is a small copse in the garden. We've also moved one of the woodpiles as far away from the house as we can.
  12. Fair enough, you have to be a jack of all trades in those circumstances and obviously know Office and presumably something like PMW, if that's still used.
  13. If you have a good program or project office then excel etc. skills are not very important in my experience, albeit probably now out of date as I'm retired. I'd much rather have someone with good stakeholder management skills, you can get your PA to do the MS stuff or for example the FDs PA if it's very confidential. This is from a background of implementing, developing and managing SAP, along with testing and managing a help-desk, and subsequent consultancy on package evaluation etc..
  14. Probably not: The cost of NHS dental treatment People in certain groups are entitled to free NHS dental treatment, including those under 18, those under 19 still receiving full-time education, pregnant women or those who have had a baby in the last 12 months, and those on qualifying low-income benefits. Otherwise, there are three standard NHS price bands. You should only pay once for each course of dental treatment. The bands cover: Band 1 is £22.70 Examination, diagnosis (eg x-rays), preventive advice, a scale and polish if needed, application of fluoride varnish or fissure sealant. Urgent care, even if your appointment needs more than one appointment to complete. Band 2 is £62.10 Everything listed in Band 1, plus further treatment such as fillings, root-canal work and extractions. Band 3 is £269.30 Everything listed in Bands 1 and 2, plus crowns, dentures and bridges. These costs apply from 1 April 2019 and are part of the Department of Health uplift in dental charges, which started in April 2016.
