Fingers crossed we can getback to TBs, but I fear the Covid Tyrants in government, SAGE, et-ruddy-cetera, are going to have us all back under lockdown again. And they will do so despite their attempt to continue the many restrictions by proxy this week, by foisting all the resposibility on shops, restaurants, bars etc.

One could easily surmise that the current rise in cases was brought on by allowing the events at Wimbledon and Wembley to proceed like they did! What makes those events so damn special that they get free pass? Oh ...... sorry ...... I forgot, 'big money' gets it's ruddy oar in ...... again.

Regarding "resposibility"
Not "us" or "people" then?

I just found this thread - couldn't believe that such banter had gone on for 15 years!
You may be proud to know that Weber barbeques has a distinct aviation connection! :-) At one time, my bro Barry (ex RCAF RN/RO on the Argus out of Summerside PEI (415 Sqdn) ) had a business that supplied the redwood shelves for both Arkla and Weber barbeques. After a few successful business years, he developed a very serious allergy to redwood and the business went down the tubes. Somehow this led him to work for David Tallichet managing his collection, before he went into business trading just off-line fighters for vintage museum pieces.

It has been too long - put us out of our misery.

We are in lockdown, and I am bored stupid.

I am having sleepless nights wondering if you made the right decision..........

Please tell us what you have bought - even if it was the wrong decision..................

Lads, have just seen this.
I have to confess to stripping the existing breath of Satan's bottom powered device down - performed a full D-check (stators, compressors, igniters) replaced a few factory parts.
Even repainted it a fetching shade of aircraft aluminum in high temperature engine paint.
Closed the cowling, placed it in the revetment, retired to the bunker, sounded the hooter and lit the blue touch paper.
Was expecting previously referred to variable geometry fast jet fireworks, but it ran like a charm.
Well pleased I were... back in Mrs T's good books until the next domestic disaster.
But... I have discovered the delights of the wood chip filled smoker box placed inside said gas barbeque.
Just like ones dual Orstrayan/Kuwi citizenship - best of both worlds.

Well done, tartare..

Re-cycle, save the planet, doing what Mrs T suggested - a winner - and avoid burning charcoal and reducing CO2 emissions.

Plus, enjoy the easier option, with great flavour from the smoke box.

Good decision - enjoy!!

I shall have a good night's sleep tonight now that I know and can relax!!

Well done indeed, tartare - a sound move to give your satanic-fuelled device a thorough service. Unlike this unhappy event which happened nearby a few days ago:


FIREFIGHTERS are urging people to be safe while cooking outdoors after a barbecue burst into flames.

The fire, which happened in the back garden of a house in Woodstock on Sunday, started when a hose connected to the gas cylinder ignited.

The barbecue was more then 10 years old and was being used for the first time this year.

The cylinder was removed and left to vent. The fire service is urging people to be mindful of old cooking equipment.

It said on Facebook: "Always visually inspect them for any damaged hose lines along with keeping it clean and fat free. Enjoy the sunshine and be safe."
