  1. Those trains pass about once every twenty minutes and the noise is not excessive and last for less than 20 seconds. Houses built close by need to be fitted with acoustic double glazing designed to reduce railway noise. This is glass with different thicknesses and one or both panes with laminated glass with acoustic interlayers. Expensive but worth it.
  2. Simple double and triple glazing will increase road sound transmission unless the panes are different thicknesses.

    FA cup and Liverpool

    According to the rules of the FA cup , it says the following: 15. PROVISIONS CONCERNING PLAYERS (a) Each team participating in a match shall represent the full available strength of each competing Club. Does this mean that Liverpool are breach of the rules when they played Wolves? If so should they be brought to book?

    FA cup and Liverpool

    That is trying to divert the question. I am not asking about the Premier League. Their rules may not require what the FA cup rules require. My question is, should Liverpool be done for breaking the rules? Yes or no? If no why not? If no why have the rule???

  19. This house is for sale in Main St Billinge There is an English "for Sale" sign and also one in Spanish. See here It says "Se Vende Casa el Bargainio" In Spanish this means "For sale, bargain house. My question is how many Spanish people live round here? Why put a Spanish for sale sign up in Billinge? I am puzzled.
