    Sumburgh Fog Horn

    Used to live close to the lighthouse on Portland Bill and loved the sound of the foghorn, also worked out on the channel so was very glad to hear it at times.
  2. Sorry jen-in-Wellies the significance of this comment escapes me, what am I missing ?
  3. I agree. I also can't think of a better place to self isolate than on a boat especially with the pubs being shut. Ah well, have to wait and see.
  4. I apologise in advance if this topic has been done to death but..........have just read on CRT website that the canals are fully open from Monday but, and this is where I am getting confused, we still can't stay overnight if we are leisure boaters so basically no change ?
  5. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 10 posts to view.
  6. So if I stand outside, on my own, looking at aircraft with my mouth open I am at risk from covid 19 ? Not trying to be facetious just attempting to maintain a sense of perspective .
  7. Personally I think it's all to do with the third horseman of the Apocalypse, discuss. :)
  8. Wll I won't be watching the rest of this blog, what a rude man !
  9. Oh I don't think I would fall for it really, just trying to be whimsical.We invested in a very nice narrowboat 8 years ago and now all we can do is gaze wistfully out of the window at it and long for all this to end. Mind you, I suppose being able to see the boat from our house is quite nice.Keep safe all and look forward to the day when the cut will be like the starting line at Aintree with a fleet of frustrated boaters dashing headlong for the freedom at last.
  10. Well ok it's Bear Grylls, not as amusing though. Aye Mrsmelly, should have been chugging gracefully along the cut en route to somewhere for our annual voyage but, sadly it is not to be. Anyway, back to Bitcoins. Do you need to buy a shed load and keep them for a long time then hope for the best ? I am already reeling from the disappointment when I discovered I hadn't won the Nigerian lottery so not another let down surely ??
  11. Well that's it folks. I have had lots of e-mails lately ( in junk folder admittedly ) saying I can become a Bitcoin millionaire. Now I don't know what that is but it's got to be worth a go right ? Says Bear Girls did it and is now rolling in dosh so, that's me off. Sod the canals, I will buy a sodding great plastic boat in the Med and be sorted, Covid or no Covid. Anyone else coming ?

    Argos Scam

    I keep getting e-mails purporting to be from Sainsbury telling me I have been selected to apply for a chance to win a voucher for £500 if I complete a customer survey. Tempting but I don't open them.
  13. We replaced ours last year with two from Aldi at £9 each. Normal inflatable jobs which we used many times on the Shroppie last year, no problems.
  14. Have done Tardebigge countless times and am curious to know about the radio set up in the cottage half way up. Impressive array of aeriels there. Presume it's a ham set up ?
