    What Three Words

    As I said, I only have it installed as it is sometimes the only location information that is provided, the OS app does look good. However the what three words app seems to be marketed much more!

    What Three Words

    I have it installed, as at work we have been finding more people using it and none of our mapping equipment is compatible with it. Seems ok. Do I think an OS grid reference is better? Yes, but do I always have an OS map with me? Most people have there phone. It is a handy bit of tech.

    State Pension Awareness.

    I thought the state retirement ages had already been aligned? That seems to be the case on the age U.K. Website and the .gov page to calculate your retirement date does not ask for gender.

    Packable towels

    I found all the microfibre towels pretty poor, and after a short time in use picked up a nasty damp smell. I moved over to a Hamman towel, its light, dries me and dries off quickly and is a decent size which can be really handy from time to time! Louis

    Plastic string/rope: wrong or right?

    That's less than three months use from a mug, how many styrofoam cups would you have thrown away in that time? And as an aside, most of my mugs are 10+ years old. Much better than anything plastic. Louis

    outdoor kitchen

    It does not look a bad set up to me, having the fire and associated embers raised up makes life so much easier, I may have tried to get the fire area on the left a bit larger, so you are able to move heat around to set up different cooking zones. The flat prep area on the right looks handy too...
