I was solving a a mystery of what happened to a sister of someone who was last seen in 1946! There had been a fall out with her father over who she was see...

Intestacy and Administration - Long

Warning – I am not in possession of the full facts and I may have misinterpreted those that I have! I also have no idea of the reasons of actions of anyone involved. I love family history and genealogy. What I am about to share in no way affects me, I have never met or know anyone mentioned, though ...

Re: Doorlock

Thank you all.

I can lock it from the inside so wont do anything drastic yet other than buying the powdered graphite. There are two screws at the level of the lock to me even more confused. So if the stuff does not work along with another key, I'll get someone to look at it.

Doorlock

The other morning it took a long time to remove the key when I tried to look the door. In fact it would not lock and let the key be free. I had to unlock it and work the key out. The inside lock was fine so locked it there and went out the other door. Now, I cannot get the key in, on the outside yet...

faulty reading on scales

Hi Another set of scales I cannot get to work. Both with the same problem. The reading instead of numbers is a range of shapes some may look letters. I changed the battery and after the initial 88888 it always settles to something like oUL2 - the L has a middle prong like an upside down F. I only ha...

fire extinguisher disposal and puraflo system

I have a puraflo system- which means the septic tank fluid goes through peat blocks before going into a drain. New houses have to have this (Scotland) where there is no main sewer and poor peculation. The fire safety person here today to check my extinguishers and blanket and said that foam extingui...

Re: HMO or Lodgings

I think that is were it got a bit fuzzy - it was the sons family home - so whilst he did not own it - it was where he had always lived. From the little I know HMOs seem to be cold and clinical and purely a business - whilst the premise for this scenario was that son stayed at home but shared with a ...

HMO or Lodgings

Recent discussion with pals raised a question with lodgers and HMOs. A friends son had been in living in a house with two pals for over a year, the house was owned by the parents of one of the pals. The three pals shared all the bills and it was all very amicable. For arguments sake does this arrang...

Car Windsceen

I have a chip in the windscreen however before I seek out someone to mend this I want to know about all the other tiny nibbles the windscreen has. None are in my direct vision that I notice - the new chip is a small back blob on the periphery. Our roads here though meant that the windscreen notched ...

I am sure you are all wanting to hear the update! Tyre down a wee a bit but not showing as a warning and drove the the garage fine.

Thanks Paul - I think it must be me! It definitely goes into the cigarette lighter as the the diagram shows the ciggie lighter coming out and this bit to go in,though in truth its a 12V marked hinged lid.

Re: Tyres

I have just spent an age trying to get the end of the compressor into the 12V thing. How on earth does it go in. The now defunct one I had used in the past just pushed home by pushing in the two silver bits. On this one the two silver bits are tiny and there are also two black bits - so it looks lik...

Re: Tyres

Sounds like a slow puncture or leaky valve. Or if you've had this problem since the tyre was fitted, I suspect it wasn't fitted properly in the first place. I'd take it back to where you got the tyre from. And sharpish, you don't want the tyre to give out on you unexpectedly. Especially if your in ...
