Really productive day today. Although had a moment at lunchtime when I thought there is simply too much to do. So i finished some of the little jobs to completion so that when i look around I dont see 90% everywhere, now I see 100%'s and some 90%'s that are nearly 100%'s. If that makes sense. I also...

So as a diversion, I've recently turned 55 so been invited to participate in the national bowel screening program. As you may be aware Cornwall is a tad different. Apart form being relatively poor its heavily funded by the eec (or was until the brexit shenaigans). So instead of a hospital appointmen...

551 A race oddity

Bummer.
Ben,. doing my engine conversion has made me realise just how much work there is to do with something like this, and translating that, how much work you have actually done. So feel your pain re the damage but I'm sure you'll put it right and be back out in no time.
