  1. Hut Stove

    I had to look up what a chimera was: The Chimera (/kɪˈmɪərə/ or /kaɪˈmɪərə/, also Chimaera (Chimæra); Greek: Χίμαιρα, Chímaira "she-goat"), according to Greek mythology, was a monstrous fire-breathing hybrid creature of Lycia in Asia Minor, composed of the parts of more than one animal Yeah...
  2. Hut Stove

    Indeed, a hat and scarf would be cheaper - but the mother in law would be cold even with that (although I have no appetite to see her dressed like the ladies above.....).
  3. Hut Stove

    I'm afraid that is beyond me at the moment - I don't have a disc cutter or a welder. I'll have to buy, not make.
  4. Hut Stove

    I'm in the process of getting a covered , two sided shelter put up in the back garden, partly as a place where my kids can sit with their friends whilst adhering to the covid regulations. I want to put in a wood stove to give some heat - nothing ridiculously big or expensive, but hopefully...
  5. Feeling a little let down.

    Same, but that doesn't detract from the fact that there are long waiting lists for certain procedures, and those have a significant impact on people's lives
  6. Feeling a little let down.

    What do the SD collective feel is the answer to the broken NHS? Taxes are not going down and the money being put into the NHS is not decreasing either. IMO (based on not enough knowledge, which is why I'm seeking more), medical technologies allow more and more procedures to be possible, and if...
  7. Steven Rinella Scotland

    I listen to the Meateater podcast regularly, as well as the other podcasts from the same platform, and Scotland (along with Europe generally) do get a mention relatively often. Often the information is wrong and conforms to stereotypes regarding a "European Class System", and obviously the...
  8. I've had the same monkey sticks fo over 9 years.

    Where do you guys put the bolts at the bottom? As far down as you can, or slightly further up? And are the bottom bolts simply at 90 degrees to the top ones?
  9. Are we heading for another "Full Lock Down"? Of course, these statistics could be completely made up and we'd never know the difference. Or the death rate could be completely governed by how deaths are classified and what is written on the...
  10. Joe’s Accomplishments!

    328 million people in the USA and these are the two best to become president?
  11. Rifle waterproof cover

    I use one called a gunslicker, but this doesn’t appear to be available in the uk any more. There is this: And I seem to recall that Fieldsports Channel were doing one, but I can’t find it. @sauer, did you get one?
  12. Are we heading for another "Full Lock Down"?

    Well, that didn’t age well, did it? 😀😀😀
  13. 4X4 Estate

    I owned a Skoda Octavia Scout for 117K miles and overall it was a superb car. The only things that went wrong were the DPF and EGR (common in VW group diesels, cost around £850 in total) and the replacement of four springs over the 9 years of ownership. I had spare wheels with winter tyres on...
  14. Anyone planned their own Memorial Service?

    And mine.
  15. Battery Chainsaw

    I only use a chainsaw to buck my annual supply of firewood, which I transport home in the truck in 5ft lengths which I’ve cut with a bow saw. The chainsaw I use is a McCulloch electric corded one, which is plenty powerful for my needs. I’m considering getting a battery saw for taking away from...
  16. An almost teetotal Scotland

    Beg your pardon, I misread your sense of humour. My apologies. There are so many that do appear to believe that independence would bring ever-lasting milk and honey to all that it's hard to separate those who are being serious from those that are being ironic sometimes.
  17. An almost teetotal Scotland

    Do you believe in Santa Claus and the tooth fairy too? They have just as much credibility.
  18. An almost teetotal Scotland

    Not long now, I suspect. The skeletons in her closet are rattling, they'll come out sometime.
  19. An almost teetotal Scotland

    Coincidence that this news was released the same day that Sturgeon said that she had "forgotten" a meeting where she learnt about sexual harassment claims against Alex Salmond and had thus misled an enquiry panel with her written evidence, and at the same time as John Swinney (the man with the...
  20. Which waist/bum bag?
