I have a lot of Hue lights, but these are way over priced. I do use these though as they are a better alternative (Price wise). They are a godsend for our hallway.

Re: What have you just bought?

ESTA check (passed, phew...) for our trip to Florida in March - did it in advance, as if there were any problems, you have to go to the US Embassy for further discussions, and there can be a six week wait for appointments (and they don't care if you trip is before that).

Better safe than sorry.

That costs over £1000, wasn't the refurb price a far better deal?

Re: What have you just bought?

Several prototype printed circuits (PCBs) 2 layer and 4 layer with Newbury Electronics "PCB train" service for a client.

Not cheap but they are reliable and the quality is good. They can do a one day turn round but that really costs so I've get them on 10 working day to help keep the price down.

Everything is done on-line and if they have a query then it's usually resolved by e-mails.

Refurb was £589, but it would have been the 2015 model with 128GB, like the original.

In my kitchen I have white/cream/grey stripe cabinet doors so have gone for a light grey ceramic floor which goes well with the dining area which has pine furniture.

I guess what I am trying to say is that you would be safer thinking about what colours would go best with whatever colours you can't change in the room(s). Laminates come in a massive range of colours and effects so take some colour swatches with you to a show room. Much better than asking us lot.

Re: What have you just bought?

Four tyres for the Colt CZ1. Not too special: 175/65 R14.

Got them for a very Christian price of £239.96 Balanced, fitted and VAT included.

Local specialist supplier that I always use. They also provide support for local motorsport teams and there's often stacks of slicks and specials in the workshop.

One less thing for the MOT man to fret over on Monday.
