Morning all, Jeanette’s birthday today and our anniversary as well. Had a BBQ last evening to celebrate.

anyway people there is a petition here to try and get a reasonable resolution to the daft situation at Bruntingthorpe, it won’t save the venue but may save some of the irreplaceable aircraft.


Brunty petition

please sign it.

Have fun all...
Happy birthday Jeanette....hope Newton spoils you........Happy anniversary both....hope you spoil each other...

Morning all,
What did you think of the Velar, overall?
It was nice, but miles off the refinement of the Sport and Vogue. The engine was rough in comparison (4 pot diesel) compared to the V8/6 but that is to be expected.
It was very similar to the Jag and carries a lot of the basic structure across including the high and deep rear cill.
To be really honest it felt like a budget RR... I think the Evoke feels better inside, but that is too small for our needs.
The ride was OK but no better than the jag... I think wheel sizes have a real bearing on the ride comfort.
Im not sure how robust it would be long term... some of the plastics were already scratched and this car had only done 2.5k.
Charlotte discounted it and put the F pace ahead. This may jave been because it was a coal mine interior (black everything) compared the the ebony and ivory in the sport, however the F pace had black leather with just aluminium trims to brighten the place up a little.

Morning all (just about) early morning blast with the roof down to blow away the cobwebs, after having to work yesterday.

Then moved onto cleaning the new daily smoker after dropping or my expired lease car yesterday before work. In no mood to commit to another 12/24/36 months on anything at the moment no matter how cheap!

Ditto, I didn’t see you at our BBQ, kind you past 9pm it all got a bit hazy.

Must admit. The last couple of sessions I have felt as rough as a badgers @rse the next day. Don’t usually suffer, must be I’m out of practice or something. Looking to put that right next week when they open.

Catman, you mention the gym, are they open again, I need to get back to boxing.

oh, and good morning.

Have a great day, all

morning all, Matt the outdoor gyms are opening from 4th July and being free they are going to be cuing to use them in most parks I’m sure. There are some cr@ppy ones and some great ones. Not that I’m biased but the kit I designed has meaningful workout value for all the machines especially if you do reps. Locations can be found at: TGO gyms

this morning I’m mostly continuing yesterday’s efforts to build a new deck on the new trailer ready for service. The difference is I’m doing it at the unit where it is dry and flat.

Got my birthday present from the kids installed in the van by Alex yesterday which is a rather swish rear view mirror dash cam so the mirror becomes a useful thing rather than useless! A constant live video link from the camera! Only annoyance is the clock is 12 hour readout with 4 digits!

Have fun all...

Don't count on it. It took me three weeks of campaigning to get my local town council to open the tennis courts after the government and the LTA said it was ok to do so.

Absurd excuses included:
  • we have no way to police that the users are following the rules (you are not the police)
  • we can't afford to hire a full-time cleaner to clean the nets after each use (players can do any pre-cleaning they want to)
  • we can't open unless we can guarantee they are virus-free (there are no guarantees, and nothing is virus-free)
  • we do not want to be responsible for a decision like this (then resign from the council you muppet)
  • creating an online booking system would be too expensive (I have set up a free one for you - it took 10 minutes)

Morning all. Not sure what the day has in store. But I won't be going out on the bike as it's a bit blowy down here in Kent, might get on the trainer in the garage though.

Work wise I've not go a clue what's going on. But I guess no change there.
