So it was time for a Python meal: Spam, Spam, eggs, Spam, beans, Spam, eggs and Spam. Magnificent!!

How's that, Barrie??

You can get too much spam, I do

I was one of the "experts" in one of Terry Jones' documentaries. Spent five great days being driven around Transylvania with him.

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

I knew when I posted, it was going south.

So I apply self critique

Nearly 2 hours to put a wooden potting bench together - it's all very well having power tools but if they are too big to squeeze into the places that need screwing you have to rely on the good old scraped knuckles routine with a manual screwdriver - I'm not built for DIY

Have you considered one of these (or something similar)?
SteveH!

Some people call me 'strange'.
I prefer 'unconventional'.
But I'm willing to compromise and accept 'eccentric'.

I hadn't Steve - but at that price it's now in my Amazon basket - thanks for the tip

No problem. However, at that price the quality may not be the best - versions are available at prices up to about £40 that look more robust. Well, they would do, wouldn't they?

Oh dear. Our dog went peaceably to the Great Kennel In The Sky this morning. She was 15 years old, so a good age. Spent half the morning clearing doggy paraphernalia so it isn't staring at us every time we walk into a room. A sleepless night tending to a dog in terminal decline is now catching up on me...

A sad loss. We go on remembering, and missing them for years afterwards.

We feel your loss. Plenty of photographs I am sure, which in turn will bring back memories of happy times together. Regards John
