Well I found out that My microwave oven only needed about 2 minutes to heat a frozen pre cooked pork patty.

That seems a bit long...

Lower voltage limits the power available from a domestic outlet.
When I lived there I noticed how much slower the kettles were.

Voltage * Current is the formula. Typical Household circuits in the US are 120V @ 20 amps max. Appliances tend to limit themselves to 15 amps or less because running much higher for long will trip the breaker.

Standard UK outlets are 240v @ 13A (120 * 20 = 2400) < (240 * 13 = 3120)
Labelled wattage on my kettle = 3100 and using it does not trip the protection

.. nor dim the lights :) :)

Here the circuits are single ended in the houses and apartments, all circuits radiate from a breaker or fuse box here. Other places like industrial or commercial might be the same, but I don't know for sure, voltages and such may be different though. Batman is on tonight, the Penguin has gone straight or so it seems...

The penguin does not ever go straight for long.

No He's as crooked a bird as there ever was.

Somebody needs to talk to his milliner.

His Top Hat is a bright shade of Violet this time, He's after a lady's jewel necklace.

Always a horrible shade.

That's cause I didn't remember that, I've seen it once, so I'm not as familiar with a fantasy movie as I am with SciFi movies and tv shows. Me-TV out of Bishop CA(KVME) or out of Orange County CA(KDOC) didn't show the Harry Potter movie, instead they showed "the Curse of the Werewolf"... Next is Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, an Irwin Allen production, He also made Lost in Space which I watched tonight.

Standard UK outlets are 240v @ 13A (120 * 20 = 2400) < (240 * 13 = 3120)
Labelled wattage on my kettle = 3100 and using it does not trip the protection

Most electric kettles in the UK are a nominal 3Kw, and electric radiant fires have 1, 2, or 3 1Kw elements. Standard 3 pin Plug tops have standardised on 3A fuses for table lamps, televisions, videos, computers etc, and 13A fuses for washing machines, microwaves, kettles, toasters. A 13A fuse can take a momentary surge current of up to 20A at switch on.

At the Consumer Unit or fusebox, 5A for lighting circuits, 15A for immersion/storage heaters, 30A for ring circuits (sockets), 45A for cookers & showers. Most modern boxes have re-settable ELCB's/RCCB's instead of cartridge or rewirable fuses. It is worth remembering that fuses are fitted to protect the supply cable from overheating and melting, NOT to protect the equipment that is connected to it. Obviously plugging multiple appliances into a 4 way socket extension lead is not advisable!

Nobody said Me-TV showed the Harry movie. John said his daughter switched to it, implying it was on a different channel than Batman, etc.

Chamber of Secrets was #2 out of seven books and eight movies. I admit I have not seen all of the movies. I have not seen 6-8 and I'm not sure about 5. I have read all of the books.

Ok, didn't see that part, in any case Harry wasn't on TV here in this area. As to the books I've not read any of them. I've seen most of the movies, once each.

Winning on a cool, sunny, Sunday morning.
Saturday was much busier than I planned.
A luncheon in Fresno, several small projects with issues, and an evening at a local club where some of my Saturday morning friends had a gig. (Jazz band ZZAH if you're interested) Great fun.
