Good morning:hello:
and No, I'm not the new millionaire
BUT I do have a free Maccys coffee, who needs millions, eh?
Sunny, the street is wet and pretty breezy so Giro it is today:cuppa:
The Towers is in a Drive, should I call it a drive?

Bob came home with 30 bob more than expected!
Paid too much, you weren't feeling well at the time?

Anderson shelter not much use then.

Get tired just watching their efforts.

Pause, take stock of what you can do, and possibly get out on the bike.

Tried raining here earlier, but came to nowt.

30 bob is 30 bob...
Take stock?
Might buy a few trays of them for wee triangle bed at front...
no edging just single type blitzed..

You've not won, again.
Yer getting good at this not winning lark.
Although, if it was you I'd expect you to say it wasn't you. Especially on here.
When you have a free McD's coffee, what need of money have you?

Damp start here, keeps the dust down.

Reight, where were I before being interrupted...

You keeping up with the peleton, or just suffering along with the rest?

Nowt wrong with having 30 Bob spare, I found a fiver I didn't know I had this morning. Back pocket cash, put through the washer over the weekend.
You'll have enough to buy something to put in them planter thingies(getting technological again)?

Thought you were the planter, along with the "young 'un".
Picture of you, chair in one hand and whip in the other, "training" yer pea plants. Bamboo canes dearer this time round?
How cheap?

Could you have reached them, safely on a regular basis, if you had hanging baskets?
Local B&M don't have any in stock, due the end of this month.

Do they ever whack anyone with their bats if they get upset?

Week flying in again..
I must get going on the bike...

Plenty places to buy,
I've started to use the green plastic ones, much dearer but reusable..
Bamboo handy just to cut to size though...
haven't thought more about the baskets for the peas....

No sunshine down these parts. Rain earlier, and I'd say more on the way.
Number 19 of 52, fair flying by now.
Whilst the weather's in yer favour, aye. How's the off-roading coming on?

They seem to be flying out, along with other gardening materials, still from shops. The bug must have bit a few these last two years.
And I bet you end up with a load that are just a bit too short when you go to reuse them.
Have them growing down not up, you mean?

Rain due later MetOff person has implied..
Somewhere got a blitzing, nice and bleachy smelling now:laugh:
Now settled with a :cuppa: and a couple of ginger snaps.

Bamboo of any length is handy,
I once made a two element quad antenna using bamboo poles as spreaders:ohmy:
11m-and-what-was-a-beast-of-an-antenna.jpg

The end plates were 12 inch square ply and the boom 2''x2'', I eventually got an alloy boom made which made life easier..
this was circa 1986 / 1988.
The antenna direction was pointed to the N and the short path to Australia....

note the two car batteries to run the 'burner', supposed to be 150 Watts out but only ever kicked out 70 but what a combination...

You'll not be going out on the bike then. Save you cleaning it when you get back.
Must be sore, to say the least.
Feet up?

And you take that when you go camping!
There's a long path to Australia?

No good for boiling yer kettle though.

I'm sure there must be a calculator online to work out long and short path..
funnily long can be a stronger path..
above my head all the calculations, all x equals this and that and y is the same etc etc.
the data mode I use has to be within a strict time limit of say 2 seconds but TBH best being nigh on exact as transmissions are sent on .00, .30 also on the opposite .15 and .45, ie odds and even.
I can call and my signal is decoded near the Antipodes in the blink of an eyelid and a reply sent back.
After all these years doing radio, I still am amazed at this.....

We used to take a portable barbeque and gas stove, it was an outing:cuppa:

Not as much traffic?
Like missen, you just press and never think about the distance between.

The tent were for two. Presumably shelter more than anything else.

Short path on 30m at 7.00UTC this morning




or was it long:laugh:
Tent was for shelter, rows of football parks just 40m away from base camp....
I used to borrow the wee Kubota tractor and trailer to haul everything out,
summer was different as the car could just drive over the grass..

the best ground plane in the world next to you....

Out early again. Getting to be habit forming, which may or may not be bad for you.

"Ooop E". Owt worthwhile there?

30m isn't that short.

Dunno, you were there!

Borrow a tractor, who from, and did they know beforehand. Beats lugging it there on yer back i suppose.
