Bob,

I also have a tv card which plugs into the usb port on the laptop. Unlike Phil's, mine is terrestrial TV and FM only but was £50 or so.

It's called Win TV and is made by Hauppauge - but shop around as prices range from £50 to £90 - I think I got mine on line at watford electronics which was cheapest at the time.

Regards
Rich

Re: [MH-list] Curly wurly hosepipes

Rich <rich@...>
 

Steve,

My father in law has one of these, a green curly wurly thing that is advertised in the Sunday supplements at about £19. Looks fine to me, but either I or Deb will let you know after watering his plants with it tomorrow!

Subject: [MH-list] Curly wurly hosepipes


I suppose every hosepipe ever manufactured might fall into one of three categories.

a) there's your everyday garden-variety (arf arf) hose which is cheap to buy, yet kinks
easily and folds ... erm ... eventually.
b) there's the flat ribbon-like stuff that winds onto a reel (slowly) but can be stored in
very little space.
c) and then there's the (I think) more modern 'curly-wurly' hoses that would seem to
combine ease of use with ease of storage.

Trouble is, I don't know anybody who has used such a hose. And it's perhaps significant
that it's the solely the 'bargain-basement' type shops that stock this stuff. At least in my
area.

Has anyone here got one? One concern I have is that the hose might be so tightly
coiled, the user might struggle to use the thing at any useful extended length. Rather
like some of those coiled bicycle lock cables.

Regards,
-Steve Wilson

Ursula - Its 100 miles to my nearest shop but it does stock the new cleaner! According to the label its supposed to restore the visibility of the window by removing haze and scratches etc. Looks like a small tube of toothpaste. Have not used it yet as their motorhome cleaner does a good enough job at present.

[MH-list] Re: Hilary's worms ( o.t. )

Hilary
 

I dunno....leave you lot alone for a few hours and not only have I
got dead bugs and live ants, now I find I've got worms!!!!!!

The tilde sign is used in Spanish above the letter 'n' which means
the pronunciation is no longer a normal 'n' sound, more of a 'n-ye'(I
believe). Not being a Spanish speaker myself I can only think of
some of the more common words which most English-speaking people
understand as an example; senor and Espagna with the tilde across the
top of the 'n' become pronounced sen-yor and Espan-ya respectively.

But Buff is right, I use the worms for emphasis as in this format you
cannot write using italics or underlining, which then leaves CAPITALS
for emphasis, and heaven forbid anyone should think (as is
accepted 'netiquette'- and we've been there, done that thread) that I
am shouting at them if I do that.

I'm still battling bravely with French! Although, come to think of
it, I lived in Hong Kong for nearly two years without ever learning
more than my destination for the taxi drivers and how to say 'thank
you' in Cantonese (I think!)...oh, and 'Happy New Year'...going to go
far on that, aren't I!

As for begging letters, Tony, we long ago decided that if we were to
come up with a HUGE win on the Lottery, yes, of course we would spoil
our friends summat rotten....and maybe we'd have an all-expenses paid
Meet...but a Meet for over a thousand people would take some

One of these Black and White TV sets arrived free with a Viking

decent colour model could occupy. In the end I could not give it

Travel in Russia

Mike Bull <Mike.Bull2@...>
 

We are hoping to take our Elddis Aotoquest to Russia to visit Moscow and St Petersburg. Have applied to Russian Embassy for visas, but understand they need a detailed itinery. The problem here is that no-one seems to know the location of campsites (if any), so it's difficult to plan in detail. Also the AA tells us that there is no (or very little)unleaded petrol in Russia and we run on this. Will we wreck the engine if we use leaded fuel?
Any tips and hints would be welcome.
Cheers Mike

in and said that he knew that Tesco let campers park overnight but he wasn't
sure what Sainsbury's policy was . . . the manager said yes but for one
night only. Just near Wakefield. We bought a fresh curry from them . .
