  1. It is true that I try to maintain a level of grumpiness that is appropriate to my Yorkshire origins. The Moon was in front of me, hiding behind clouds and the stars were above, in clear view. Every time the clouds moved the Moon matched their position so I couldn't see the astronomical spectacle. Our street lights go off at midnight and come back on at 6 AM so they weren't an issue.

    Used Boat Seat Cushions offered Free.

    Yes Please! I''m making new seats for the runabout and, as it is out in all weathers, begrudge buying new foam. I won't need all of them if someone else has need of some but could definitely make use of them all eventually, if not... Edited to add: OH has pointed out that the new boat also requires new cushions for the back deck seating area so I can use it all after all. Funny how being off sick enables me to do for free exactly what I'd normally be charging for if fit and well.
  3. Well the stars made an appearance so I blame the Moon. It's no good chucking science stuff at me...I've been up all night and I'm very grumpy.
  4. No it was supposed to be visible here but from 4 until 6.30 it never once came from behind the clouds.

    Brexit 2019

    I'd rather be a do-gooder than a do-badder. Happy to be a "Snowflake" when the alternative is a sneering contempt for anyone who wants it to be a nicer place.

    Where to dump rubbish/building waste?

    Which costs far more to deal with than processing it down the tip.

    Brexit 2019

    A whole generation of people who care...Makes a change from the usual right wing "youth of today" diatribe. If they are all do-gooders then maybe some good will be done.

    Boxing Day Meet.

    A vegan hunt? First it was fake bacon, then came the "bleeding vegan burger". What will they copy next!

    Brexit 2019

    No we hit rock bottom when the tories failed to win a majority in the last election but acted as if they had won a landslide and ran roughshod over parliamentary sovereignty. Ever since the general election May and her government have made a mockery of the democratic process.

    Do you have a boating knife?

    I also have a Spanish navaja which is a beautiful knife and keeps a razor sharp edge but unfortunately has a locking mechanism so can't go out in public.

    Do you have a boating knife?

    I've got a doukdouk and it's lovely but I find the handle a bit skinny. Mind you the same could be said of the laguiole but I guess it comes down to what fits best in your hand.

    "Forged in Fire", a History Channel series is serious knife porn if you ever get a chance to see it.

    What I like about the Opinel is that they are reasonable quality blades for a reasonable price. Laguioles are either superb quality and very expensive or cheap fake garbage which can't keep an edge for 5 minutes.

    The truly discerning knife owner in France carries a Laguiole.
