    Let's Drive: Levisham To Whitby

    Sleights - A couple of years ago now Jan / Feb time me and the Wizard stopped here for a fortnight / three weeks upgrading holiday let properties - Proper up market they are too. Nice village. Whitby - Been countless times both as a civvy and staying weekends alongside onboard HM Ships Attacker and Explorer. It is also a destination of mine on 'Ride Outs' on the mighty Tiger - Love the place Griff

    Never Ending Story

    She looks great too. Of course she does, she always does too Mind you, sadly she does not always look pristine after a while in the ever increasing leaky wet shed prior to Simpsons taking her round to their place before to you board Griff

    Broad Ambition - TLC Time Again

    Now they really are handy pieces of kit. Used one (But a lot bigger) many times at J.W's place until he wore it out, at Woodbutchers and the Wizard has one too That is one of your better purchases Griff
  4. How does one send updates / Alerts to the Waze system whilst on the move? by using the phones keypad or by voice command? Griff

    My Day

    Cracked on far better today, confirmed my planning out and having discussed with the client over the phone it was all systems go. (I'm home alone in this property). Got about 11 x m2 down including some awkward cuts, that included a trip to my suppliers in Donny for some more adhesive / grout and a rushed sarnie. Still doubtful I will get it finished tomorrow but fortunately the client booked for Thursday / Friday has kindly agreed to delay by a day until Friday Saturday. That's fine but I was kinda hoping to get the Mighty Tiger out for a blast on Saturday. Still might hopefully Highlight of the day? The girly partner arrived home early in her nurses uniform, proceeded to make me a drink / biscuits which was pleasantly distracting Griff

    Broad Ambition - TLC Time Again

    I bought three from Ebay, inc the P&P were £27:97 making them about £9:32 ea. Sizes are 75 x 56mm and 2:5mm thick here:- https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/140506455848 Those that Grendel posted look to be exactly the same only at £11:10 ea plus whatever P&P making them more expensive, Hope this helps, Griff

    Just to add that although ‘B.A’ has indeed enjoying being pampered of late, she is fuelled up and ready to go as normal (minus her mast) Griff

    Broad Ambition - TLC Time Again

    The s/steel ring pulls that are fitted to Port n Stbd deck hatches along with the well deck hatch - Well I have come to realise they aren't all they are cracked up to be. They get deformed over time and the springs break. There ain't enough metal and too much air. One of them needs replacing again. So stuff it, another upgrade to three 316 grade s/steel, much thicker with less air and no springs. This'll sort it once and for all Griff

    My Day

    The screed was actually a self levelling compound, there are a few reasons why it would fail. Bad mixing, Not cleaning the concrete of dust, applying outside temperature parameters, not priming / wetting if that particular levelling system needed it, green concrete etc etc I didn't have enough rubble buckets on the van so had to go home to get some more. I filled 11 of them, then had to go dispose of that lot. Pick up two stop ends as they had not taken out the pedestal / sink for in the w/c as they said it was glued to the wall tiles - it wasn't, it was silicone so had to deal with that too. By the time I had cleaned everywhere up etc it was 1630. I should have been laying tiles from the off first thing this morning. I then got set too planning out. By 1830 - 'My 'Ed urts' and I called it a day, All 14 x Hrs of it. There are 14 edges to consider in just one dimension on that blasted floor, It would have been a darn site easier if the tiles were a sort-of standard size but oh no, they are 195mm wide plus a 3mm grout line (And 1200 long). If the skirting had not been present that would have helped too. I think I did get it before I departed, there are more chalk lines and pencil marks down than Clapham junction. I will check it again tomorrow then at last start laying tiles. A full day behind. That's Pretty Flowered the work diary at the very start of a week, working Saturday again here I come. Griff

    My Day

    Brilliant, just brilliant. Arrived at clients. It’s all ready to go, that is a 20m2 porcelain floor tiling job. They have removed everything including laminate floor coverings. Only slight snag. The finishing screed is debonding from the concrete sub floor. This property is just two years old. (RAF camp at Hayfield) I reckon at least 4 hours to remove / clean / dispose. Plus increased invoice for clients. First thing Monday morning and I’m behind on weekly diary already Griff

    My Day

    Just the four rounds of Clay shooting this forenoon. Sk e e t, DTL, Sporting and Double Rise. Nice mild day for it too. Soon departing for the Keepmoat Stadium, the home of Donny Rovers who are playing Crystal Palace from the Premier league in an FA cup match, 5th round - First time Donny have made it this far since 1959. They have never made the quarter finals ever. Today could be the day - We will see Griff

    A Yorkshireman On A Broads Holiday

    Eeee, Bah Gum. Apparently that is what some clubbers are doing in Yorkshire nightclubs. Injecting 'E' directly into their gums. A practise known as 'E by Gum' Griff
