I am updating my knowledge of business technology generally, in particular whether my way of working is really that efficient or could it be improved upon. It has been suggested that I should seriously consider hosted desktop as that would enable me to work anywhere. From a prospective supplier (UK ...

Carrying a blade

Approximately 2 weeks staying at a hotel and experiencing the weather consequences for my car parked in the hotel car park outside has led me to conclude that I am going to take a blade with me in future. The roof of my car does not have a gully so after it has rained and i open my windows the water...

Re: Parking - tandem spaces

Does anybody actually keep cars in their garage these days? John Yes. In our street, some 22 houses, I estimate about 11 garages are used for cars. I should think it depends a lot on where one lives and how much ''stuff' one has compared to the number of people residing and the number of rooms in t...

Re: Parking - tandem spaces

The key to using a garage is to have an automatic door opener, so that you don't have to get out of the vehicle in the rain to open or close the door.

Histamine v anti-histamine

Mrs Bnc having been prescribed some anti-histamine tablets (prescribed but bought otc) got me wondering whether the 'anti' is interfering with the body's natural defence system.
