Re: Change of car? Maybe.

So many cars come with alloy wheels nowadays, it is very easy for a pothole to take the wheel out of true. Some of the company's that refurbish alloy wheels are able to correct them. One of my boys paid £25 to have an alloy wheel straightened(?).

Rock face is really good. Wondering if I could do something similar where I have a chalk finish.
Hi Brian - you've probably watched it, but this is the Woodland Scenics YouTube Tutorial - I found it very inspirational. Barry

Re: Forced to slow down.

I get that envelope every couple of years. I think it continues like that until your seventy four, after that you have to ask for it. They have now changed the format for sending the sample - only one, not three - much easier to deal with!

Re: Forced to slow down.

I had my heart stress MRI yesterday - took about an hour. I was a little apprehensive, but it was all very straightforward with no problems. I won't get the results for a while, but hopefully all ok. Life goes on as usual. I have just received the letter with my follow-up appointment following my M...

Re: Wykeham - Somewhere in the south!

There are one or two "straight edges" that need roughing-up a bit. A few bushes etc. should help, and as you say some greenery hanging over the edge.

Re: Wykeham - Somewhere in the south!

I've added a couple of WS Course Turf colours, to give a bit of texture to the surface - have still to experiment with the static grass. There is now a bit of greenery on some of the cliff ledges - I will add some bushes and then have to start playing with the Seafoam (trees). The cottage has gone b...

Plenty of snow!

Plenty of snow in British Columbia, Canada - you might even see a train go by. There is sound and best viewed in full screen.

Re: Looking to change.

Many thanks for all your views and suggestions. We have to give it some thought, but I'm certain we will do something. As I said originally, we have BT Landlines and BT Broadband, and I have say they work perfectly - as we are with BT we get BT Sport for £7 instead of £16 - and I do watch a fair bit...
