Lyn, if you look at the photo (?) you will notice the top left corner seems to be missing, or faded ,I can't see the demolition men leaving the house like that,unless it was actually taken whilst they were working.
The reason I've questioned it being a photo is that I did notice on the site that a lot of his photos were marked as photo copy, will have to wait and see until it arrives,maybe he's making lots of copies from the only one he has.

John

I think you will find that the building was left in that condition. The brickwork had been cleared back to the window frame which would have had a tied edge and therefore have been pretty solid. I cant say I think much for the tapering above that but there were not the health and safety concerns of today then. Also it looks like the door and window of your old house had been bricked up long enough to attract fly posters.

Good morning, another fine day forecast.
I'm doing nothing today just being idle and going to watch them erect the Brighton wheel.

Talking about street lighting, does anybody know why all the street lighting is being changed. From what I can see there seems to be little difference except the new light stands are a little higher and I suppose the lamps are the new energy saving type. Why though could the existing ones not be converted instead of all the expense of replacing them?

Phil


Volty will know better than me Phil, our new street lighting is great It's almost like daylight. Ours are much brighter energy saving LED's I can only guess that they take less power and have to be on another power system. SB



I'm not very well up on street lighting.
I know the new(ish) fitting at the top of the post outside our house throws less light and glare back at the house and none at all upwards.
If they are fitting LED types then the power supply will be the same but the control gear will be replaced or, more likely, be entirely contained within each lamp.

LED lamps are a marvellous thing, I have just replaced some 12v 50watt dichroics over my bench with LED types of 2.7 watts with 54 LEDs in each. Not as bright as the 50 watt of course, but they run almost cold as does the transformer, so no more setting fire to my hair. The reduction of 140 watts in consumption will never pay for them though, not at £6 each. The more modern 240 volt types are less than half that price so it is the way to go but although more fittings are required at the moment to get the same light levels it is the reduction of heat generated that I see as the major advantage.

I thought everything was deactivated at the till once it was scanned, if not why not tag everything, it would be cheaper than the cost of all the stuff that gets nicked.

Quite a nice Indian Summer we are having at the moment. I wonder how long it will last?

I always was a night person, I hated day time but loved the nights. The trouble is now as I get older I don't see much of its because I'm usually snoring.

When I was younger, it was nothing to go out on a Friday and spend the whole weekend drinking and not return home until Monday night after work. Then I got married.
