  1. 12V to USB charger

    Well the Santapod weekend is coming this weekend. I have one of those phones that have a flat battery after a day. I will be going up to Santapod in the Fiesta as its cheaper on fuel than the Trans-Am, although the Trans-Am is much more fun i need to save the pennies. I do have an inverter that runs from a cigarette lighter, however the fiesta is so basic it doesn't have one of those.
    I found the Duracell made a USB charger, its basically a battery pack, you plug you phone into it for it to ...

  4. The Bathroom

    Party at Steve&Jans last Saturday-bathroom_001.jpgAs most of you know I've moved into an older house that needs a bit of work. Structurally good, every room needs decorating at some point and the garden needs attacking. In no rush, just something to do over a number of years. Over Christmas we saw a nice Christmas tree in B&Q it was 100 with all the lights built in, this came down quite a bit in price after Christmas. So we popped into B&Q, but there was non left in stock. On the way way out saw there were complete ...
