It used to take me five minutes to our club field. Then the farmer installed solar panels and it now takes me 30 minutes to reach the new club field.

Therefore now, my car adds 25 minutes of extra pollution every time I go flying.

Right, got my Easy Street ready for the field. Then I found that the Canopy latch is broken, or at least non functional.

The operating arm has slid forward along the pin so that the pin is no longer able to engage the canopy.

I can see the fault from the air exit holes on the bottom of the fuselage, but without major surgery it is inaccessible to affect a repair.

I can do a work round with a couple of rubber bands over the canopy to custom fitted retaining pins on the sides of the fuselage.

That this canopy retaining pin is sub standard is, in my opinion, disgraceful.

And while I can cope I feel that to anyone not experienced in assembling an ARTF this could be a major setback.

If you can't get Clearcote any good quality clear varnish will do the job. But it's a job worth doing.

There is a large Glamping site near to me (wooden holiday shacks with a heater, instead of a tent) and they are having complaints about people playing very load music through the night.

Very impressive bit of film, much information, like oiling the rockers before starting, not seen this at a scale competition.

I notice Goring was amongst the pilots standing around Manfred.

Bought one myself this very day from Steve Webb's at Frodsham, the reason for my purchase was lack of wheels for rough Winter fields.

Got plenty of models with wheels on.

Certainly it's horses and their upkeep that account for the vast number of traffic movements past our house, which is on a lane with no vehicular through route. It amazes me because there's absolutely nowhere to ride enjoyably. They all just hack along the roads. I can see the pleasure in riding (I once had a horse mad girl friend who got me on a horse a few times) but not walking on the road.

Anyway as to the life of a business - my grandfather set up his watch repair business in 1978 and my father finally retired and closed up in 1980, so it lasted over 100 years. Dad did change the business a bit and added air rifles (we became registered gunsmiths), photographic equipment, and, primarily radio/TV and white goods but it kept going as Sleath and Sons all that time. Admittedly, he was losing money hand over fist at the end mostly because of pig-headedness but it kept going and it was sad to see the end of it.


Did you mean 1878 start

Leaving Lidl for a moment, I noticed that Aldi are selling exercise weights, ball shaped lump with a handle, weighing from 2 Kilo to 12 Kilo.

I picked up a 12 Kilo one which seemed rather heavy for pensioner me. It occurred to me that if dropped on ones foot it could result in a messy visit to A&E.

Just think, there are model planes around at this weight and more. cool

Rhodes' cheque to Barnato for his half of Kimberly diamond mine was, at the time, the biggest personal cheque ever issued.

All I need is a nose hair trimmer, but they don't seem to have one, so will stay home.
