    Where did you find that photo of me as a ten year old?
    Apophthegm -  a big word for a small thought.

    I thought you'd like it.
    I had a really angry looking one last year. All fiery colours. But I didn't get around to taking a photo. @pansyface

    Did you have a moustache at the age of ten @pansyface:D

    It reminds me of one of the old guys in the Muppets.
    Or Groucho Marx. Appropriate  ;)

    I could use up a whole thread today, so curmudgeonly am I right now. But it would not be very interesting as this topic makes everyone curmudgeonly. In short: 
    Call centres, companies holding on to your money and making it nigh on impossible to get a refund / contact them, etc etc

    If you’ve never turned the wrong gas hob on, so that it heats the handle of saucepan on the next hob … and then grabbed hold of the pan handle, don’t bother … I can tell you what it feels like ♨️ 🥵🤬

    I've lost count of the times I've burned all the hair off my hand lighting our gas hob. Terrible design. Does anyone recommend induction hobs? If I can get a cheap enough quote for a heat pump under the new grant system I might go completely gas free and finally regain my luxurious hand hair.

    There was a thread about induction hobs a while ago, @wild edges - largely positive, if I remember right...

    I've had two induction hobs in two different houses @wild edges.   Excellent. 

    ...but do you have luxurious foot hair....

    Does anyone recommend induction hobs? 
    They are standard in passivhaus homes because they use so much less energy. I don't have one (I've got halogen hobs) but the people I've spoken to who do all seem very happy with them. I'll get one in the next iteration of our kitchen (when OH has finished building it)
