Tips and tricks for do-it-yourself’ers and hobbyists.

On bottles of mineral water and tetrapack cartons there is always a best-before date. This is required by law because they contain a consumable product. It sounds a bit paradoxical. After all, natural mineral waters come from subterranean sources which are protected from impurities. That’s why experts also assure us that water in its pure form can be kept almost without any time limitation. A SecoSan Stick from Trotec will ensure permanent purity along with additional freshness and crispness when you add it to your water. Continue reading

What kind of a buyer are you? Are you the impulsive or trusting buyer, the buyer who is more likely to accept what he or she sees at face value and who – to a certain extent at least – is prepared to believe the promises and accept the hype surrounding a particular product? Or do you see yourself more as the cautious and critical buyer, the buyer who likes to find out more about the product they wish to buy – even if this means sacrificing a considerable amount of time and energy – to ensure that they are not only getting the best possible value for their money but also that what they are being sold is all that it is cracked up to be? Continue reading

There are a number of truly great ideas or inventions which, because they are so monumentous, have succeeded in forever changing our lives. Take sliced bread for example. It must rank high on many people’s scales or why else would they refer to it as one of the most important milestones in history when heaping praise on a particularly brilliant idea or describing the importance and ingenuity of an invention they think exceptionally highly of (“…the greatest thing since sliced bread!”)?

It’s summer! Well, if the calendar is to be believed it is. But with this July on course to being one of the wettest Julys in over a century and with some parts of the country experiencing what would normally be the equivalent of a month’s worth of rainfall in only 24 hours, you could be forgiven for having difficulty warming to the idea that it really is. This time it was the north of England which was most badly hit as residents in Cumbria, Yorkshire and Lancashire had to be airlifted from their homes, cars or caravans or rescued from freak floods which had transformed serene, meandering rivers into raging, terrifying torrents leaving many citizens badly shaken and some properties submerged under as much as six feet of water.

When it comes to saving energy and heating costs, people can become really creative. Some of them only heat those rooms which they use most. Others get one of those fancy dog draught excluders, or they close all shutters to improve the insulation of their windows. And because for every degree you turn down your heating you save a good 6 % off your next energy bill, they wear a second sweater or a third pair of socks. That is certainly one way of dealing with the problem…But what most people tend to forget: The apparent air temperature strongly depends on the humidity levels in the room you are in!

Which thoughts cross your mind when you think about horse riding? In my mind I see little girls who dream about winning ribbons in equestrian tournaments, or I picture Europe’s royalty wearing ridiculously huge hats and feverishly watching the world-famous horse race at Ascot, or I even think of the lonesome cowboy from a renowned cigarette commercial galloping through the American prairie… Despite – or probably because of all these clichés about it, the popularity of horse riding as a hobby doesn’t seem to wear off… But one thing is sure: horse riding is, without doubt, quite a time-consuming and costly hobby. One of the most important pieces of equipment a rider needs is a saddle. But don’t let yourself be fooled… Finding the right saddle for your horse and your specific discipline seems like an almost impossible task to me. After an extensive research on the internet, it becomes obvious that you can easily spend a small fortune on a saddle made from the finest leather and decorated with fancy silver clasps and ornaments which are typical for a western style saddle for example.
