The HFs are about to demolish a McVities Ginger Cake.
Would that be a Jamaica Ginger Mr hf. One is unfamiliar and had to Giggle that species but is very partial to Jaffa Cakes. Years back since I had some though.

That crossover was made more complicated by some of the lines having to have the live third rail carrying voltage for the lecky trains,have to make certain they don't give the steam train drivers a electric fright as they cross over em.

The very same animal JSP
Usually bake my own version but the McV stuff is ok and sticks to your teeth in the proper manner.
A good standby by for miserable nights when it is hoofing it down.
And boy is it hoofing it down at the moment.

Back home after a very wet drive along the A55 / M56 Glad we didn't have that weather yesterday!

Old and new Enterprises alongside at Belfast Central - why did no-one else see this shot coming???



Then via Portadown - seen here leaving for Dundalk and Drogheda to Dublin



A shorter stay than intended at Dublin due to hot box detectors going off and CIE employees not realising that they were dealing with a steam loco meant a quick chinese and back on board - ready to leave Connolly

Brilliant piccies TBF.

Thought as I had 5 mins and things are easier to find, googled for the only train accident I was in. Dad ended up in PRI and had numerous stitches to his forehead and head.
On our way back to Southport from my Grandparents. Stuck his head out of the window to see which platform we were coming in to. Doh!! Didn't improve his foul temper however.

Not a photon in the sky. Black as a black thing.
I think today could well be a porridge day.

Morning all, it has dawned dry. I recorded 53.4mm of rain in twenty four hours up to yesterday.

Taking SWMBO to the fang fettler shortly. Then time to tackle the lawns before the next bout of wet weather hits.

Good morning all

The weather front with the gallons of water, has passed through early and not dropped as much of it's load as guessed at. So we should be back to normalish service by this afternoon.

Anyone with a little communications law, know if it is an offence to obtain a copy of someone elses phone sim card and monitor, extract info/make calls, without their knowledge?

On the subject of fish (and chips, pies, puddings etc) noted the The Yorkshire Fisheries chippy in Fuengirola has now become the Happy Haddock.

Any one ever seen a happy haddock especially one caught, portioned and deep fried in batter?

I would assume copying a sim card by a third party would be an offence if it was used for snooping, may depend on the privacy laws, I am sure that a legal brain will answer your question shortly, Ibbie.
I didn't realise that a sim card could be copied.
The full gale has eased now and the rain has stopped for a while. All the pesky leaves that i hoped would help to fertilise the back field are now residing in my garden. It is days like this that not having a lawn is a disadvantage ,can't push the mower around over slabs and stones.
Mrs 1DC gone away for the day, it will be a quiet peaceful day.
My migraines were getting worse and a mate suggested i stopped drinking milk, I found a coconut drink at the supermarket and started using that for my porridge and cereals. Not only does it taste better than milk the migraines are in decline.

'Morning,
Seems the Ibbie deluge of Sunday became a Wodrick deluge of Monday, certainly whacked it down overnight but it seems to have passed and be about to drown the good folks of Palma de Majorca.
Sun can't make his mind up however.

Dunno what today will bring.

I would think several laws being broken in the U.K. Ibbie but in Spain ? although, on reflection, Spain seems to have a law for most things, getting them implemented is el problerma.
