    Logging in to UKW

    What am I doing wrong? Each morning I receive the email with recent chats. Sometimes I think I have a worthwhile or humorous contribution to make and click login. I often find I’m already logged in! Then finding my way back to the original thread is very difficult. I make my comment then go back...

    THE FOURTH OF JULY

    I’m a long time Liberal Democrat and I have been so because I identify as being slightly left and south of the very centre. Certainly not towards the authoritarian. Though I suspect that most voters for the main political parties see themselves right in the centre.

    I was interested to see the debate on the meaning of socialism, Will Hutton raised exactly the same issues this morning, you may find the piece of interest ? Socialism isn’t a dirty word. It’s simply about wanting to make a fairer society...

    Attaching Sash cords

    Thank you the more advice and guidance the better. I’ve been working on the windows for nearly 40 years but the interval between episodes is long enough for me to have lost the technique. All I remember is struggling with the sash, cord, hammer and nails. It was only after I had worked on a few...

    Helping at a repair cafe

    I'm afraid that repair shops in our neck of the woods, of which there once were many, are now a fondly remembered piece of local history. The only one left I know of is a cycle repair shop, which mainly concentrates on the highly technical racing bikes, he's only still in bussines because he...

    Helping at a repair cafe

    Funnily enough I was asked to fix a battery Dyson, it was completly dead. I was able to check that the charger was ok, as the battery wouldn't take a charge I had to presume that was the problem. The owner addmitted it was not a genuine Dyson replacemt but a bargain from Ebay.

    Helping at a repair cafe

    Thank you, that is most encouraging. I went to the venue yesterday and have a better idea of what to take, thanks to the comments above and the equipment they have in the library of Things. I’ll post tomorrow how it goes.

    Does being right or lft-handed determine which way round a room you go when painting ?

    I’m left handed and have never considered it. I think that being able to see the tip of the brush going into where I’m painting is most important. Painting to the right would therefore be easiest for seeing but to the left the smoothest way to pull the brush. When I was learning to write as a...
