    It's about weighing up reaching full growth (testosterone) and having certain breeds avoid too much anxiety (testosterone) against the marginal added complication of doing the surgery on 'older' dogs.

    We were going to go with 12 months as Maurice is quite an anxious breed, this then became 18 months due to some other issues (clashing with vaccinations and surgery for a split ear).

    Wish we hadn't bothered at all, but he's a rescue so we were contractually obliged.

    My partner got her bag stolen, including phone, gah.

    She was using an Oppo AX7 and seemed to like it (although the screen was so-so and the camera was bad).

    What's a good replacement at around £200?

    It's better, but I wish they'd abandon reflective symmetry when using roman numerals and come up with something that looks perfectly balanced instead: creative use of a sub-dial/date/logo/etc.

    The design approach is always: make them skinnier, no skinnier still, a little more, that's it: Imperfect!

    Roman numerals, yuk. The 8 looks especially bad (as always).

    Farage will back down, he just wants to be feel important/relevant for as long as possible.

    I expect he'll arrange it so that he 'saves' the Conservatives at the last moment.

    The Tories are the Brexit party now...

    Has anyone got an old school 26" rear wheel I can buy? 120 spacing?

    I also need an 18t freewheel?

    Apparently the tube action 'wasn't approved by an XR vote'? Anyone know if that's true?

    Shocking video. Mob mentality. Disgusting.

    Edit: Ah, ok, is that what they're referring to?

    Coal cellar would be most likely. Is there an external hatch to it?

    The structural danger in doing more clearing depends on your foundation type. I'm guessing you have shallow brick/concrete footings? Is the existing cellar space already below the foundation footings? If so, tread carefully!

    I imagine the rubble was simply a cost-effective way to build? The clear space above the rubble was deliberate in the same way you'd design a crawl space nowadays (easier to level, easier to access, etc).

    Whilst there's a correlation of anxious/difficult dogs to rescue dogs, that doesn't mean that's the dog you're going to get.

    Re-homing centres are generally excellent and wouldn't put a difficult/anxious dog with an inexperienced (or frail) owner.

    The most difficult/anxious dogs will only be re-homed with an existing (calm/trained) dog already in the home, etc.

    Generally speaking you know EXACTLY what you're signing up for with a rescue dog. The same can't be said for a puppy, or a dog purchase (where the biggest incentive is a financial one).

    Perhaps an old dog? Old dogs usually struggle to get re-homed and will have well documented/predictable character traits?
