Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

Not had that problem with the "ecobead" stuff we had installed when the extension was built in 2007. Will look out for it though just in case. Most of the ants are in the lawn at Trev Towers...

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

It's seems to be Flying Ant Day. It usually seems to happen everywhere on the same day so I hope you're not all getting as irritated by the wretched things as I am. Well aware they can't help it...

Dug up the last of my early spuds this afternoon - having some for dinner tonight. Yum. Hope yours come out well Gary.

Re: Smile of the day - What is yours?

First pint in a pub and first meal out in four months. Went to see The Munchkin in Brighton yesterday and stopped over at a nearby hotel. Both the pub and especially the restaurant were very quiet...

Re: Tea and sarnies ride Friday

I should have been packing my topbox and bungy-ing a bag to the pillion ahead of setting off to Barmouth tomorrow :(

Re: The Veg Plot.

Nice. Have been eating a lot of lettuce before it all bolts in the warm weater but the early spuds were very poor due to the dry spring. First lot of beetroot are ready though which will be nice. ...

I'm getting on well with my new Sony so have decided to go all in and complete the move by passing on my Canon setup. It has served me well and still takes excellent pictures so whoever gets it will...

Re: K1 locked pillion seat

I had to do the same once with my 2000 model. Use a piece of stout wire and go fishing for the catch. If I recall I used a coat hanger and went in from the front under the passenger seat.

Good...

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

I'm on a roll with the gripes.

I had to cough up 30 for a new left-hand twist-grip for my ageing Raleigh at the start of the week. I have gear ratios again now so that's nice. But riding about...

Nightmare for all of us really. Like yours Gary my water butts are nicely filling up and I did manage to get a ride in on Tuesday, albeit rather curtailed as the weather closed in.

Re: The all new slap bang up to date photo of the day 2020!

The A6600 takes a bit of getting used to after so many years with Canon but the detail and clarity so far have been superb. I agonised for a long time about going full frame or keeping it small so I...

Yes it can, but I shoot raw, as a highly entertaining lunatic (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZG-C5esGZyVfxO2qXa1Zmw) has on his t-shirts on YouTube.

Some of you may have noticed that despite me getting a new toy from Sony last week I have yet to post any pictures from it on here. Turns out there is a hidden cost of upgrading your camera.
