    Was scheduled to see a live rendition of Tubular Bells last weekend. Cancelled of course. Would have been great: 10 musicians playing it live.

    As far from the sea as we could be, except when we can actually get in it.

    That is a set of tubular bells.

    The bottles in the background could be an attempt at a home made rebreather ... or ... they could be another musical instrument destined for the Wildlife Trust using pressurized plastic bottles. They're set up at the moment with some over pressured to see if they go pop.

    And is that a collapsible ladder in the shed?
    Blimey. Nothing gets past you lot. Yes, the collapsible ladder is something I, er, forgot to return when I left work. Very useful piece of kit when used with a ladder stopper to foot it.

    If God had meant us to breathe underwater, he would have given us larger bank balances.
    Human beings were invented by water as a means of moving itself from one place to another.

    Chainsaws, mowers and brushcutters kept locked up in that one. Oops, supposed to be a secret.

    Put a little bit of water (half a cup) in a plastic washing up liquid bottle, stick a football adaptor in the cap hole and then over pressurise until the top pops off. Instant rocket!

    I have purchased 6 Millefleur pekin bantam hatching eggs from Ebay, which I will top up with some from my prettiest Dutch bantams to fill my little incubator. Chicks in 3 weeks!

    The tastiest eggs I have ever had were from some sort of bantam.
