  4. Many years ago I witnessed New Horizons being "launched" (OK - it was already afloat...) by a very juvenile Prince Charles - can't remember the year but ? 1980 as I'd just passed my driving test...
  5. She also (I don't live in Marple anymore but still get her emails) appears to push with real world facts and figures and has done for many years - "Vote for me because I will..." not "vote for me because I'm not XXX {insert party of choice}"
  6. Now I know a happy ending... Many years ago our (amateur) SCUBA Diving club used a small lake - one Sunday I was one of the first divers in the water and found a Vauxhall Cavalier that hadn't been there the previous week... I shouted the Index Plate back to the Dive Marshall, who phoned the Police. Confirmed "Nicked" two weeks previous in Bletchley. They didn't want to get police divers out on a Sunday (overtime) but asked if we could: - Check for bodies (that wouldn't happen these days?) see if any receipts etc, as in two weeks the villains may well have bought fuel I dived again, foolishly thumbed the boot release, and got a swift uppercut as the spare wheel made a break for freedom. No bodies and no receipts, but I did claim an up-to-date road atlas.

  11. Neither have many humans but they are still scared.
  12. Bugger! @magpie patrick and I are ploughing through Dad's slides looking for just such a picture! He left around 50,000 when he died and (at the last count) we are up to about 16,000 scanned so not quite 1/3 of the way there. If we find a better photo, we'll update (although might be 2026 or so...)

  14. I'd imagine it's a similar problem (although on a larger scale) to decanting any fluid or compressed gas. Move as much material as you can for the minimum loss of potential energy: - Given an empty chamber, fill it first from the side pond with the lowest head - when equalised, close paddle Then fill from the side pond with the higher head - when equalised, close paddle Then top off from the chamber above In reverse Given a full chamber, first fill the side pond with the highest head - when equalised, close paddle Then fill the side pond with the lower head - when equalised, close paddle The rest goes in the next chamber down
  15. Recorder set about an hour ago - especially as passing through Milton Keynes...
