    Middlewich breach

    I would suggest in all probability once the water had been drained out, it is the result of the bed drying out during the hot summer and will take a period of resealing.

    How do people like Cloudflare get away with issuing SSL's to anyone who requests it for their website (via redirection) and for free. There does not appear to be any fitness examination of a website that applies for such.

    Homeless on a cold night.

    Saw the same guy at Hurleston in September, he stayed on the bench there for a couple of nights. He appears to be a friendly happy soul and I would consider that his radio is one of the main comforts of his travels.

    Engine hours

    I would add that not all my oil changes, I am the second owner. Having said that they do get a tad easier😁

    Engine hours

    13,500 hours on my 2005 Isuzu 42 engine and it still runs as sweet as a nut, oil & filter changed every 250 hours or so, fuel filters whenever.

    tank cutter

    In my early days of drilling and cutting we used a home brew concoction nicknamed Mystic, basically a mix of oil an water in the right proportions,also tallow for thread cutting. A vote from me also for Starret, to my mind simply the best. I still have a selection of rather old Starret hole saws, even though they have been extensively used as good as the day they were purchased.

    Fake news on NBW

    Cannot agree with you on that. The fact it is already under the Winter stoppage listing indicates that the canal is closed. It is just an addendum that now the towpath is closed. Winter stoppages are never issued just for towpath closures. Trying to nitpick makes you look stupid.

    Great Canal Journeys. New series

    Must admit I was also disappointed with it. I thought I had nodded off and missed a bit, they could have easily made two episodes of the trip and shown a little more of the Bridgewater, along with perhaps some of the Shroppie to Chester and beyond. I'm sure it would have been interesting to boaters and non boaters.

    Lock 92 Castlefield padlocked

    Must admit I have been along there many times over the past two years and never seen him. Note to self: Must try harder to encourage him😁

    Lock 92 Castlefield padlocked

    From the lack of news about Sunny these days I wonder whether he is now in shackles 😁

    Lock 92 Castlefield padlocked

    Looks like it may be Aytoun Street bridge to me. Bit of a concern when the trams run on it.

    Lock 92 Castlefield padlocked

    Sounds a reasonable stoppage to protect boaters and walkers. Just a shame the third party owners (city council) are dragging their heels

    Philip Green surprise surprise

    I am not sure that Peter Hain was doing a public service in outing Philip Green. It now turns out that Hain is a paid adviser to Gordon Dadds, the law firm who are representing The Telegraph in their fight to overturn Philip Green’s injunctions. This is going to spectacularly backfire on Hain.
