those idiots can drive their cars in all directions - I've a photo somewhere of a car that drove through the cones on our works to replace the barriers on the M5, it dropped into the excavation and rolled onto it's roof.
When you're driving alongside the vario barrier on a roadworks, remember the barrier is designed to deflect back 1.2m when struck by a vehicle - notice the number of operatives standing closer than that to the barrier.
Rebreathers are like women; they pretend to love you, whilst taking all your money and trying to kill you.
We've just joined what is probably the most landlocked boat club in the UK.
Stafford Coastal Cruising Club.
And I'm fairly certain they are actually a boat club, not involved in any other kind of cruising.

Just before bedtime yesterday. Our cockerel started screeching. Went outside and our 6 month old dog ran towards us with something in her mouth. A rather battered and de-feathered chicken was let go. Mrs MarkA gave the dog a severe telling off. The still alive chicken was put in the shed for safety. This morning the mother in law decided the chicken should be retired. Guess it will be in the pot tomorrow.
I have just barely managed to crawl out of a black hole.
A couple of months ago we bought a Japanese imported Toyota Alphard. Absolutely brilliant in every way..... Except the big screen which controls the radio and satnav is all in Japanese. And the radio only covers Radio 2 (Argghh) because it does 76 - 90Mhz. The GPS doesn't work because the Japanese system is different that ours (why?? How??). It's no big problem really, there's an app on the phone that, when you point the camera at it, translates the stuff on the dash and screen to English and you soon get used to what each button does. It's slightly annoying that a Japanese voice tells you to, probably, "Do a U turn at the next available place" when you turn on the ignition. Thankfully silent for the rest of the journey.
So, on a whim I googled replacement head units (Oh, missus) thinking that it would be a niche market. But no. There's millions of them. for every car you ever could imagine. Android OS, 9 or 10 inch screens that plug straight into all the cables that are already there. Integrate with CAMBUS etc. And they surely must cost a fortune?? Nope, cheap as chips comparatively - from Aliexpress of course, although premium brands exist and can be had from Amazon, etc.
It's a whole world of stuff that I had no knowledge of.
