Morning all. Grey and humid here.

I particularly like loco cab design as an example of minimal weather protection:

Should be free by now Ibbie





Persids tomorrow, in my Radio Amateur world always 12th, same as Grouse.

I had a 'modern motor car moment' yesterday.

The engine stopped and a smell of petrol filled the car.

When I re-started the engine I had the 'Engine Warning Light' come on, but the engine ran smoothly and all seemed to be well. So I drove very gently home.

This happened following the parking of said car, in the sun, nose up, on a very steep driveway for about 4 hours. The evening before I had filled the petrol tank and only driven about 6Km since.

When I got home and did some Googling and find out that this symptom is commonly associated with the petrol filler cap not being fitted correctly, and other fuel associated happenings.

Google also revealed that problems with (expensive) sensors et al could cause the symptom.

The filler cap was removed and re-fitted and a nights rest in our level garage seems to have fixed it

Everything crossed.

Mrs Ib failed to fly. Started throwing up. Stomach ache. Now at hospital for tests
Sounds like a uti/kidney infection. When she is released will rebook her for Thursday or Friday

That's a shame Ibbie, hope she makes a rapid recovery ....

Hope changing things about doesn't hit the pocket too hard.

I am very upset about the Exascots - I hope the situation is speedily resolved.

Speedy recovery to Mrs Ibbie

Ian-had the same problem. Took it to the dealership where they explained, rather condescendingly I thought, about turning the petrol cap until it clicked. Felt a bit of an idiot.

I am also missing the reports from Bots. The fun police are very norty. Hopefully, this is not a permanent ban

Just saw the FSL's posting about his hotel squid adventure! While Herman Melville might have offered a different opinion I can't help but wonder if some cyberphobia, some fear of the internet, is the root cause! Too many hours spent on line? Some psychologist could make a killing here methinks!:

Back home once more.
When I got to Aged Mater's Towers she'd gone out to the hairdressers.
Good job I've got a key. The phone took 2 mins to fettle, the return journey* took nearly 5 hours.

Sorry to hear about Mrs Ibbie.
Fingers crossed for a quick recovery.

*by that I mean there and back

One's weird dreamlife is a side effect of having a very active imagination I'm told, one's looks at the world differently from you normal folks, tiz the curse we survivors of Atlantis have to live with, there was bound to be a down side, still, xray vision and the ability to fly does compensate somewhat.
