I am currently with OVO too but when my current contract expires I am hoping to avoid my annual check for a better supplier/tariff by using lookaftermybills.com to save me the bother. It's free and can opt out any time so why not? Anybody out there tried it yet?

Reminded me of when I was doing my National Service in Germany in 1954 and out on exercise when after dark an RASC driver was refueling inside a farmers barn with a paraffin lamp by his side to see what he was doing in the dark. Nice bonfire - and a huge claim on the Claims Commission no doubt.

That suggests the inner is too flimsy. Make a better one? My very aged pal didn't bother with any ekes or whatever but just pressed half packs of Apifonda onto the top of the frames where the cluster is and put the CB & lid back on. Nothing more - and he had kept bees for 70 odd years! When last...
