    Hi E, I don't give it much thought! I think my first book was 1956 ladybird book of birds' and I don't think I've read 10 in my life including school. I was thrown out of shakespeare class for laughing when I had to read, and came across 'methinks' and couldn't carry on. I can read ok, but...

    Relocating electric sockets Building regs

    Hi T and W, I did them, but must of missed the actual answer. I was thinking about galvanised cable protection (Wickes) between the insulation and the cable, I think I'll use it anyway, it's cheap. Thanks all, I'll carry on. C

    Hi, I'm talking about light switch and power socket cables coming from the ceiling to the socket height. It's easier to bring them down on the insulation surface, then plaster board over them. Would this channel help...

    Hi, I'm about to insulate some walls with sockets on, so they need to be taken out of the wall channels and rechannelled into the insulation. Is this ok. Is there anything different about channeling into insulation? It will then be boarded over as usial. Camerart

    New radio for old

    Hi, Fitted the aerial upside down on the nearside of the windscreen, and it works ok, so 2x aerials DAB/FM. I don't know why a remote came with it, but the mode doesn't work, and there are coloured leds, on the face of the radio, that change colour all of the time, a bit of a nuisance. There are...

    Hi H, I've noticed that with the TV and other DAB radios. I think they can be switched to FM, and have inputs, so music can be played, so I'll take my chance. Cheers, C.

    Hi A, Ah yes, the steering column controls! The new radio doesn't have them, and I'll miss them. Change channels, volume, type of search etc. When I ordered the new one, I just wanted the cheapest as a tempory solution, and thought I'd ordered a DAB type, but an FM only type arrived. Kind of...
