  1. This rather puts into perspective those people who say that they can't solder/use a lathe/build a kit etc etc http://www.bbc.com/reel/video/p06t5pd3/-this-might-freak-you-out-i-don-t-want-my-eyesight-back-?fbclid=IwAR2OlY9ncJmV1tVs6NLNcMPLDblvcNogl0HX5zbrJJm-0LN_lrfPrW7r5fw

      Inspiring stuff, its proof you can achieve whatever you want to if you don't let things hold you back and a reminder of how much a lot of us (myself included) take for granted. My brother was born without his left arm, he trained as an electrician and he's now the international electrical specialist for the company we both work for. Requested by superyachts around the world.

      ... It's called "music", is it?

       

      Comes as a shock to me - much like the concept of actually getting my call answered by a real person, possibly even some time today ... nah ... not allowed.

      "An unexpected high volume of calls" they also say in normal times, which doesn't exactly engender confidence that they can manage their day-to-day business.

  6. Rosebay Willowherb is out.

  8. BBC Weather showed 50% chance of drizzle by 10.00. Well they were half right in the sense of a 50% chance of no drizzle. We dream of drizzle . . .

  11. The title of Elton John's 1971 album 'Madman Across The Water' seems curiously appropriate at present; whether you live over here or over there!

      Indeed. Some British politicians seem intent on following their own 'yellow brick road' too...
