  1. That Desk Sergeant was very understanding...:)
  2. Well spotted- I had not a lot extra this year- the Muscat grape ( bad year- grey mould and splitting ), the Solandra and a Cestrum Nocturnum were there as usual, with the addition of a watermelon, which did very badly this year- red spider, and an enormous plum tomato, which had finished. actually, I was sick of the mostrosity- stupidly big, and the fruit were tasteless...!
  3. Such a great spell of weather- I cleaned the shed out, cleaned the greenhouse out, and got my overwintering area sorted. Pint glass for scale. Nearly gave myself a hernia lifting those pots..:)

    Extraordinary! How did I miss this?? The advertising for stuff is getting stupid now, and I don't use ANY of it - no children, no hair, no debt, ex-girlfriend and family run a funeral business, I don't want a package holiday or a new car. I don't want to gamble online or buy a mobility scooter. I'm fine with my energy supplier and my bank. If one more vapid harpie tells me about hyaluronic acid I'm going on a killing spree....

    Fubar: I got rid of the half container full of spares for BMW 2002's a couple of years back. I have my garage workshop stuffed, both lofts boarded out and stuffed, all other storage under the stairs etc stuffed, a container on a farm stuffed, a long small barn stuffed, two workshops on another farm stuffed, and a large Lot n Store stuffed, with old studio gear and parts. I think I'm up to about five tons. Probably more. I know how you feel....:) Oh- and I worked on a studio session where Jim Marshall wanted to record a crooner album, and Bert Weedon turned up with his guitar.......

    Oh wow- I bought a box of records from a friend this month who said "gimme 50 quid" so I did. Buried amongst the usual stuff that a 60 year old man has lying about, there was: The Modern Revolutionary Ballet by the Red Detachment of Women (DM 6166)- a 1971 Chinese propaganda LP, The Legendary Skatalites- (Jam Sound JLP555), Tangerine Dream 'Poland' (Zomba HIP22)- never knew it existed, Jimi Hendrix 'Band of Gypsys' (Capitol STAO-472) Jimi Hendrix 'Electric Ladyland' Part 1 (Track Record 613010) And Jimi Hendrix 'Electric Ladyland' 'Vol1 and 2' (Polydor SLPHM 184719 and SLPHM 720), for the South Africa market. I told my friend about them and he said he didn't care- they were just old records. Bonkers. My Thorens TD160 is going to be busy....:)
