Similar light effect here, Siti.

I have survived the first cycle ride into work of the season - hoorah! Even managed not to have to get off and push (fully expected to) up the Bloody Enormous Hill that forms the last part of my journey.

Sunday will be the last ski of the season (the snow is rubbish but I want one last day out) then hopefully there will be some drinking of rose in the sun outside one of the restaurants.

After that, nowt to do but wait for summer

Indeed we do, but it's a bit subdued and weirdly orange.

Sorry Bluey but it was the scotch that worked Apparently I drank half the bottle last night and nearly bought a 1/4 share in the 400 acre farm next door. I feel back on form this morning. Going for a 34% share instead.

Exactly 30 yrs ago today a certain Flt Lt Exascot landed here in Maun with HRH PC on board.The hut where I stayed still stands. I have a photo of myself outside it taken 4/04/84. Will reenact photo tomorrow.

Just remembered I left the other half of the bottle at the farm

Sorry bout the weather FSL

Always enjoyed reading this thread and don't wish to intrude upon this close-knit group. Our Captain Drapes seems to know his way around a six-string, especially a Fender Stratocaster; I was reminded of such while viewing a 2011 video clip of Pink Floyd's Comfortably Numb in concert. That clip would but most young musicians to shame...

Well, the Patrouille de France do a smoky fly-by in the mornings on their way to the practice ground at Plan Dieu. Maybe mixing their blue, white and red stuff makes it yellow!

Must be me

Watching David Gilmour hammer away on his Strat on the Comfortably Numb solo made me think of you. I bet you could do better .

Thanks for having me aboard!

A different world.

Last night I ventured out of the Tyne Valley to attend a meeting at a place called Snods Edge - a mere 12 miles away.

Map of Snods Edge in Northumberland

As soon as I climbed the hill from Riding Mill (altitude 80 metres AMSL) I was immersed in fog (cloud) at 130 metres AMSL, and, on arrival (at Snods Edge - altitude 200 metres AMSL) I was informed that they have been continuously fogged-out for a week now.

Apparently, the name Snods Edge is derived from 'Snows Edge'.

Morning all.

It tipped down here again in the ealy hours Wodrick and initial dog walk was conducted in falling rain.

However, been out shopping already and, as my largest quarterly pension had arrived in my UK bank this morning, albeight late, have converted and transferred funds to local bank. Two other smaller pensions are also late arriving. Seems that UK bankers are up to delaying payments for their gain again.

On the subject of guitars, that wonderful shop, Charlie Guitar has reopened in new premises, near the port in Fuengirola. Quick glimpse reveals much vintage Fender and Marshall goodies. Will probably lose myself in there for a couple of hours one day next week.

Welcome to those that have newly arrived and good wishes to those medically constrained.

Beeb reporting that a flour lorry and beer lorry have collided on the M74.

Sadly one's left hand is losing its cunning of late,also ones right hand no longer pulls a colt as swiftly as it once could so one tends to avoid gunfighting these days as well.
