    Hot tubs

    Has anyone any idea of the running costs of a hot tub? I am looking at buying a holiday lodge, and one of the lodges I am considering has a 7 person hot tub. I'm thinking it might be a novelty for a while, but might prove a costly addition and an unnecessary extra £10k compared to similar lodges...

    New roof

    My mum has had a quote of £3900 cash for a roof replacement for a standard semi detached house in South Manchester. Can anyone advise if this sounds reasonable please? The firm recently replaced the roof on other attached house and did a good job - quick and quiet, so workmanship is not in question.

    Best player you have played with (or against)

    The highest achieving player I played against was Sammy McIlroy. Well after he retired, he used to play with a group of guys in Lymm, and my own team would challenge them to a game every so often. He was still the outstanding player when in his fifties, against all us casual footballers. In...

    Tapatalk @##<*$|¥

    What have they done to Tapatalk on iPhone and iPad? It used to be great. Now, I get notifications, alerts, messages, flags, icons galore. It's doing my head in.

    Footgolf

    Has anyone tried footgolf? Played on a golf course, and the objective is to kick a size 5 football into the football sized hole. There are quite a few courses in and around Manchester / Cheshire. I've not tried it myself, but I think I'll give it a go at some point...

    School closures because of snow

    Why do some schools send children home when it snows? I can't think of one reason why this should happen. I can think of many why it shouldn't. 1. Parents have to finish work to collect their kids, or be at home with them. 2. Parents could be at work many miles away, can't get to school...
