    ken livingstone and zionism, please explain

    History has to be changed so as not to offend anyone. If people bother to investigate via Google they will see Hitler and the Jews did, albeit for a short period pre war, exactly as Livingstone said. Politicians and others have twisted the truth in his statement to deny the truth all Ken does is...

    Gas, rubber tubing

    I just had another look and its definitely orange pipe with the crimped type jubilee clips. Farmhouse has lpg cylinders with red pipe between regulators to copper through the wall, this stuff is similar (or the same) as caravan pipe

    Cutting trees down

    Fence it off with access from your existing garden, call it either an orchard or paddock, thin the trees out, maybe plant 'new' fruit trees in the future. Lawns are boring

    Gas, rubber tubing

    Living in the country where there's only mains gas in the larger towns I'm quite used to seeing orange rubber tubing used on LPG setups but recently I've noticed it's use connecting hobs 'in town'. I thought domestic situations need copper pipes etc, though obviously not with LPG, whats the...

    There are grills to outside 1 at back and 1 to the front, there's a pretty good movement of air I was just wondering if it would benefit from a boost in a 'stagnant' corner

    Suspended wood floor, ventilation, wet plinth-heater.

    Our house is a couple of hundred years old and the ground flloor are pine suspended over a 2' gap. It's all clean and tidy, no rot or damp and we fitted underfloor insulation a couple of years ago. My question is: I am in the process of converting the rear 'parlor' into the kitchen. I have a...

    13a plug instead of D/pole switch

    Yes it is wet central heating, I don't know what fuses are proposed but I think it's just a shortcut by our fitter rather than fit the switches we've got. I thought he'd come off the ring at the sockets and go from there.

    13a plug instead of D/pole switch

    Rather than fit double pole switches for the cooker hood and the central heating plinth heater our kitchen fitter has suggested using 'normal' 13a plugs utilising a existing double sockets. Is this acceptable? both of the sockets are easily accessible by removing the plinth.

    Exterior pebbledash painting - Advise required please

    I've used Weatherflex and found it to stand up to our Welsh weather really well. I painted the rear of our 4 bed terrace which has pebble-dash that looks just like yours. I used a masonary brush to get into all the nooks and crannies.

    So I have bats in my attic

    Beware, bats have more rights to their 'roost' than you do. There are really punitive consequences for anyone who interferes with them. We nearly were prevented from continuing a restoration once the Bat Inspector stuck his oar in. It was only that we had been living with the bats for a number...
