    Morning all.

    After the zip line earlier this year I’m trying to convince the old boys to try this new attraction when it’s hopefully half price. Looks like fun.

    Zip World Quarry Karts

    Looks like you could add that to the following list :ohmy:

    Set fire to your hair
    Poke a stick at a grizzly bear
    Eat medicine that's out of date
    Use your private parts as Piranha bait

    Dumb ways to die
    so many dumb ways to die
    Dumb ways to die-ie-ie
    so many dumb ways to die

    Get your toast out with a fork
    Do your own electrical work
    Teach your self how to fly
    Eat a two week old unrefridgerated pie
    Dumb ways to die

    Set fire to your hair
    Hard to get it alight
    Poke a stick at a grizzly bear
    Last one round these parts was shot, over 100 years ago.
    Eat medicine that's out of date
    They only date it so they can sell you some more
    Use your private parts as Piranha bait
    Wouldn't they go for the legs first?

    Good morning all. Busy already. Dog walked, car washed, grass cut front and back. It is quite warm already so I think I will ease off a little and take it easy until the TdF starts. Had a bike ride yesterday so recovering today but back in school tomorrow for last day until about 3rd week in September. It is a hard life!!.

    Pretty sure I mentioned this previously (so bear with me) but I seem to have a virus that keeps coming back for another go at me.
    Symptoms.......
    I woke at approx 04 00 cold/hot shaking and really sweating, I could literally feel sweat pumping out. Changed PJs 3 times in 20 minutes.
    11.15 now, I am drained and my legs are aching & soo heavy.
    Bit scary tbh as I have good health normally and hate being laid up.
    Moan over, have a good day everyone :smile:

    No I havent. Mainly as 'attacks' only seem to last 24/48 hours and if it is a virus there I nothing they can do.
    Mrs D was close making the phone call but I (stupidly???) said no.

    You may well have a good point.
    Its 13.15 now and I am gradually coming around and just managed a sandwich......so I think I am heading in the right direction.

    Baking hot so hiding in pool. Started to plumb in an irrigation kit for raised beds containing tomatoes, aborted when sun was overhead. Pool seems to have a magnet that stops me from getting out. Maybe later:whistle:
