I have a cross bred Jack Russell terrier that I am trying to re-home.   

He has a lovely nature and he is usually quite good with other dogs out on walks and he tolerates children. He is very full of life and gets very excited going round and round in circles and jumping up into the air before going for a walk.   He is quite highly strung.

His immunisations are up to date and he has a Pet Passport.  I think he would do well in a home where he was the only dog.

For further information please contact Rosey on 01646 622113 or 07873 309414.

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  ;)
