    Plug In Heaters

    Costing pence to run, yes maybe but because they are relatively low wattage. Can only be classed as “personal space heater” IMO. Having said that, the one we have pushes out a reasonable stream of hot air, it’s thermostatically controlled but doesn’t stop pushing air out when temperature reached. It then pushes out cool air that is gradually getting warmer as the air around is warming.Temperature range is 15-30 degrees. When you finished with it you don’t just turn it off. Press a button and it runes down for 60 seconds, turning any warm air in it to cool air, no doubt cooling down the ceramic plate. I never leave the unit on and go out of the room for anything more then a few minutes, not got my complete trust yet. It might just warm a room approx 10ftx10ft in a reasonable time, anything bigger and a second unit would be required. They are not quiet, but the noise is acceptable to me (but maybe not everyone). As a main heater….. I don’t think so. There are various prices knocking around. We bought two for less then £30 the pair. The size is obviously attractive and they use that as a selling point. My opinion, if you want proper heat you need something more substantial - perhaps a bigger in size ceramic heater, or an oil filled heater… both available for £50 - £70.

    Belle Vue 2024

    Zmarzlik is a throttle jammer, tends to go where he shouldn’t but gets away with it. But has finesse as well. One day it may all go wrong. I hope I am wrong n that.

    Paris Attack

    Read a news snippet last week about the religious change taking place in Iran. The younger generation, shocked by the deaths in custody of other young ones after being charged with not wearing proper face coverings, are turning to Christianity. Can only go one of two ways……better or worse.

    Moto Gp, 2 And 3

    I convinced myself that Jake Dixon is not going to make it to MotoGP, after watching him on Sunday. Inn what should have been a defence of his 3rd place in tha championship a young but talented youngster pinched it off him. Not enough fire on his belly to make it in MotoGP. MotoGP, pity Martin couldn't take this race to Bagnia like he did Saturday. Another spectacular high side from MM. DiGi did well, again, and pleased he got a Ducati ride for next year, though he still will be a year behind machinery wise.

    European Union - In Or Out?

    Those who voted for brexit were right, it was right to leave. What was wrong is that the will of the people was hijacked by remainer politicians pretending to do the will of the people and therefore not doing the will of the people. The UK was right to leave the EU is now highlighted by what’s happening in Poland, Sweden and Holland. Those countries are in effect saying take the politics out of the EU and return to a common market. If the forerunner of the EU had stuck to that policy the UK would have had no need to leave.

    Moto Gp, 2 And 3

    Managed to see the Moto3 race. After last weeks terrible show to stop Sausalito winning he got revenge this week with a win, but still he lost the chance to be world champion in his last season in Moto3. Will have to catch up tonight (Monday) to see highlights of Moto2 and MotoGP.

    Moto Gp, 2 And 3

    Managed to see the GP race today. Really good, could have done with DiGi getting In front of Bagnia but but to be. Quartararo does amazingly well on a bike that's not fast enough, all he can do is ride every race to the limit, today it didn't pay off. All Martin can do tomorrow is get to the front and slow the race down, difficult I know, and other riders put the pressure on Bagnia. I always like different riders to win world titles. You may only get one chance and if Martin doesn't get it this year things may go completely different next year.

    Moto Gp, 2 And 3

    Some fantastic racing in all 3 classes. Moto3 is as hairy on those bikes as it was back in the days of 125cc. Is it now 2 years or 3 the two Brits have been in Moto3? Whatever, seems slow progress, they don’t seem to be moving forward and full of excuses for not improving. Moto2, I come to the conclusion we not going to see Jake Dixon in MotoGP any time soon, going to need to focus on another Brit hopeful, and it doesn’t look like it will be Bradley Ray either. MotoGP, gutted for Martin, clearly fast in the Saturday race, then clearly in trouble right from the start in Sundays race. I hope it really was a bad tyre from Michelin, though it looks like one bad in the whole weekend……what chances of that. I would hate to see any fiddling going on to help Bagnia been WChamp again. Can’t believe DiGi winning, well deserved, but where was he earlier on in the season? I know it is only his 2nd year in top class so perhaps it was a case of “gain the experience then it all comes together”. But, you can see a pattern with some other riders. They get to the second half of the season when contracts are due, then they improve. I know not many contracts were expiring 2023 but look at Alex Marquez. Ever since Marq has been signed to the same team for 2024 Alex has taken a massive leap forward. As if “oh I better perform better, big brothers coming and he will be fighting up front, and I am going to look a wally and loose my seat fro 2025”. I’m glad Alex is up there, but just saying. Overall, I hope MotoGP,2,3 is not going the way of F1…… a travelling circus. Since the F1 fiasco of 2021 when the last lap of the last race was fudged I hardly watched F1 since. If the bike GP turn into a circus show then I could easily move away from that too.

    2024 Discovery+ Sport

    That’s good to know. rev your last comment……they all do it, so if you move from Virgin it’s highly likely the “new” supplier will be doing the same. It’s crazy and needs sorting but I won’t hold my breath.

    2024 Discovery+ Sport

    If you don’t mind me asking, what do you get in that package and what do you pay? I have a BT broadband pack (have a landline too) and it costs just over £30per month, 74mbs. 12 months ago I was paying £62pm which included tv and sport that gave me MotoGP. TV pack was rubbish and paying for sport when all I watched was MotoGP (BT had lost the speedway GP contract couple year ago) was way too much monthly, so it went. What I find ridiculous is that you have a 2 year contract that if you want to get out of it BT can charge you the remainder of the contract, yet they can put up the monthly fee every 12 months by a large amount…and it’s all approved. We are in “rip off Britain”.

    Sport related Manslaughter charge

    but if you knock someone out the crowd love it…..and the very fact someone has been knocked out means the brain has suffered a trauma that could cause death.
  12. The last two years I have paid £60 each year for 12 months access Discovery+ ie Entertainment and Sport. Hugh amount of entertainment and sport wasn’t shabby either. Speedway GPs, plus whatever flavour the world pairs/team was on, British championship, good number of British Premiership. No MotoGP, but can’t have everything. So with the link between BT Sport (which did have MotoGP but not speedway, for £30 per month) I was a bit worried what the charges would be 2024 to watch speedway GP’s etc. Thinking it could be anywhere between £60 per year to £30 per month or maybe more! Pleasantly surprised to receive a notification this afternoon with a link to what is happening at TNTs, the new enterprise that encompasses BT Sport and Discovery+.. see the link I got today www.cordbusters.co.uk and scroll down looking for…. Discovery+ UK Revamp: Bigger Bills Ahead For Sports Fans There is now 3 packages available : Basic (no sport), Standard (formally Entertainment+Sport) £6.99pm, gives Basic with additional Sports content from Eurosport, Premium £29.99pm, gives Standard plus TNT Sports. So for two years been paying £5pm, for 2024 will be paying £7pm. Happy with that, really did think it was going to be well above my affordability. For Discovery+ you can use app on your mobile, tablet, computer. I recommend a ROKU streaming stick, needs a HDMI connection on your TV. Hope this helps

    SGP venues for 2024

    Don’t worry, the stands could be filled with Poles. To them Manchester will be like Torun, Warsaw or Wrocław is to a Brit. Manchester has a lot of history and is surrounded by a lot lovely countryside. Sometimes we don’t really appreciate what’s on our own doorstep, the grass is always greener thing……….and of course that also applies to a Pole living in Torun, Warsaw or Wrocław. Apart from the above, you sound like another who is advocating no world championship or similar top draw events should ever be held in Britain because potential venues in your mind are boring. Wonderful.

    Correct, it’s Croatia, my mistake.
