Photos and Devotionals

A couple of updates:

1. has had a couple of new photograph sets added from my summer trip to Georgia and Massachusetts. I have finally had time to sift through and take some of the images that aren’t just holiday snaps to put up.

2. wideplace has been updated with a new article. I know it’s ages since I last did one, but, anyway, here it is.


Boiler woes

Glow Worm Protherm 80E

We took out a complete insurance on our combi central heating boiler from new as it is the only means of heating in our home. Our experience of this insurance has left us totally cold, in more ways than one!

We have a 24hr 365 days a year hotline. We can report a fault any time, day or night. Unfortunately the repairs only take place Monday to Friday 8-6! So having reported a fault Friday week ago and had an engineer eventually appear 6 days later on the Thursday, by this morning (Saturday) it was broken again.

No problem, just report the fault immediately, and then wait in the cold with no heat or hot water until the working week starts!

This is a good old fashioned British quality product if you believe the product literature. If this is good old fashioned British quality, then I’d rather buy elsewhere from now on.

So, buyer beware, once the equipment fails, the service is just as unreliable as the boiler…

General Web Design

Done properly this time

This time I’ve done it properly. The web site has now been completely redone.

The site has had the navigation moved to the left hand side, a completely redesigned banner that takes up less space, and a slightly different page for displaying photos so that that banner doesn’t detract from the image.
