Re: Rant of the Day v2.

More about my tendency towards procrastination than anything else. Cowboy Junkies are playing two shows at The Musical Instrument Museum next month. :-bd It was already marked on my calendar but ticket not purchased (I'm not good at long range planning [-X ). Went to the MIM website yesterday only ...

Re: Electric Cars II - Not Silly!

Just discovered that in April Gridserve commisioned a batch of chargers at Burton-in-Kendal Services on the M6. 10 chargers with 15 connectors. 6 chargers are CCS 350kW ones. Great, I thought, would be ideal for my planned trip south to Cornwall later this year as the EV6 is one of the few cars at ...

Re: Aircraft I haven't flown but would like to!

All the that talk of the F-104 got me to thinking of this rather brave, and skillful, if not insane Belgian officer. I bet some of the gaggle of pilots watching that were thinking "in my dreams pal!" https://youtu.be/jyBDEG9dg-Q Clearly the F-104 didn't dissolve in the rain! ;))) https://youtu.be/rf...

Re: The really boring and totally pointless snippets thread V

It seems that mad dogs and Englishmen drive as badly in the morning sun as they do in the midday sun. Saw the result of what must have been a highspeed accident on the almost deserted M11 this morning, with both cars having rolled, the police trying get somebody out of one. How did they manage to cr...

I must drag my sorry, saggy arse to the Museum of flight near Edinburgh, as I'm now unlikely to visit New Zealand,
East Fortune! ^:)^

Thrice visited by TGG. Well worth a visit. Huge pity one can't fly in though. Very surprised that it is not an active airfield.

Re: The really boring and totally pointless snippets thread V

Warm at Headcorn today and there is some sort of parachuting competition going on. Much lurking down at the western end of the field with the sheep while attempting not to shear them or the trees! ;))) Two visiting Bell Jet Rangers here today. Air redolent with the smell of Jet A , smells like victo...
