We have some storage jars, Fresh&Easy by Leifheit - excellent vacuum lid when new, but a couple of years in, the rubber seal seems to have worn out, as they’re no longer a tight fit. Anyone come...

Mrs B will be in Ireland for a day or two. Our mobiles are SIM only, pay-as-you-go. Can she text/call me from Ireland (and me-her) just by putting 44 in, or do we have to use some other code? Ta....

Just watching The Producers on TCM (cable). Hilarious as ever, but either I'm getting old (no question) or there were bits missing. I was sure there was a scene when somehow a neighbouring lot broke...

Bought a dirt-cheap DVD from eBay. It’s the complete works of George Eliot, on Audiobooks, and they’re saved as MP3 audio files. Can’t put the disc into a CD machine (it IS a DVD), but on my...

Direct Line want us to pay them £250 BEFORE they’ll even look at our burglary claim! This is the excess. Is this legal? Is it normal? What choice do we have? BB...

Anyone know an easy way of getting hold of free access to All4? We keep getting pushed down the path of free ads for £4-ish per month - all we want is free access! Ta. BillB...

We are extremely low users of our Samsung phones. 1000 minutes yakking would probably do us for a year, not a month. We do text, but again not teenage-levels. Our data drawdown would be minimal -...

Following our recent burgled shed incident, local old Bill says a noisy door alarm might help. Any recommendations? The shed is 35 metres from the flat, so we need some sort of remote off switch - not...

How picky do insurance companies get about a shed break-in - they jemmied the padlock off the door and had it away with several hundred quids worth of tools etc. No receipts, of course, and the geezer...

Is there anything on the market to stop mattresses shifting sideways off the bed? Something that clamps to the side of the bed, towards either end, which holds the mattress shifting. Ta. BillB...

I've replaced the 'sweep' strips under our shower doors, and it helps prevent water from flooding out into the bathroom, but not quite all... Where the two doors meet, there is a bit of a gap, and...

Most British writers (mainly the men) seem to have been awful husbands or partners, deserting them, having them locked up in asylums, whatever. None (if any) led 'ordinary' lives - caring for their...
