Re: The Murphy Ladder

Er..... OK. Clearly a silly parody but I'm surprised they're on a BBC website without some sort of backlash from someone who thinks someone else might be offended...

Re: Smile of the day - What is yours?

I've had experience of working at home, near home and anything up to two hours commute over the years. Have got to say that being at or near home leads to feeling a bit trapped in one place after a...

Canon kit for sale

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...

Very nice Tim but how will you mount a top box to that rear end?

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...

Re: The All New Megathread

Rain. Holiday. Grumpy... It brightened up a bit this afternoon so Lady Poppy and I went for a cycle ride down to the local retail park as she needed to go to Hobbycraft. So many people there it was...

Re: The All New Megathread

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.

Garage is now...

Getting a bit fed up with the weather now. We were supposed to be exploring Snowdonia this week but, well, you know... Kept the week off as I was getting a bit fed up with the relentless workload...

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...

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

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.

It rained today as well so I had go at the...

Re: What have you tinkered with today?

Fudge. You get the indicator lenses off a Trumpet by twisting them, which I found after using what seemed like a purpose made point for a flat-blade screwdriver lever off... At least the bulb just...

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

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.

My lettuce is bolting very quickly now too. Was a bit grumpy this morning whilst weeding the beds when I realised the mud all over the last of the current lettuce batch was not actually mud. A...

The ginger wine reserves got hammered last night so I had some internal...

Don't worry John - I am well aware. But thanks for checking.

It's a shame that my local Jessops has gone as I would have gone back to them to see if they could do me a deal. In the end I went...

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

Like the colourful graffiti.

I seriously considered the new model Olympus M5 as it was the right size and has a very nice look to it. It's a bit more expensive though and the 40-150 lens I would...

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

This might reignite the photo mojo. Arrived today - was so excited I did not get the 700D out to take a better pic of it (this is a phone pic). The battery had zero charge in it so the hardest part...
