Thanks Mike - I found your reply very helpful.  I was thinking of electric underfloor heating.  I currently have tiles in my kitchen and a concrete floor in my bathroom so I suppose it would be possible to lay the mats on top in order avoid all the dust.  There is a gap under my worktop to allow for things to move up!  I think the best thing is to install a plinth heater pro team and then get quotes from an electrician.  Rosey

Many thanks for that Bob.  I had more or less decided that I will have to have underfloor heating at some point.  Hopefully I can get it done in the summer.

Please can anyone give me some advice on heating my now very cold, smallish kitchen?  I have just had an ancient gas boiler removed and a new one installed in the airing cupboard.  It will be quite difficult to put a new central heating radiator in the place where the boiler used to be as it would involve a lot of new pipework which I think would be unsightly.

Initially I thought a vertical electrical radiator would do the trick (the gap in the worktop is only 40cms wide) but I am now considering a panel radiator just above the worktop.  I have also looked into underfloor heating and using an electric heater.  Ideally I would want something with a thermostat and a programmable timer.

I should be grateful for some U3A wisdom and advice.  Many thanks.

I have tested with Family Tree DNA - an American company.  Apparently I have approximately 1500+ matches.  The main reason I did it was to break down a brick wall - which I have not managed to do yet.   
It all depends why you want to get your DNA tested.  I would recommend downloading Peter Calver's latest Newsletter from his Lost Cousins site.  He has written extensively on DNA testing.

It's great that a Welsh tree won  ;)

It worked for me!   

It's an excellent course for anyone interested in Family History.  Enjoy yourself Maggie :)

I went on it in 2014 - it's stunning train ride.  :(
