On the subject on lockdown, another senior govt official is saying one thing and has been caught out doing something else... Rolling Eyes Evil or Very Mad

Typical. It's the old "Do as I say, not as I do" syndrome.

Yes, should say previous owners. Glad the typos and strange predictive text combinations are keeping everyone entertained during lockdown.


Edit function? (Just a suggestion)

Don't spoil things Geoff. Rich's lockdown non-university challenge is keeping things fresh and interesting.

Yes, although I must admit I don’t proof-read my posts after putting them up. Smile The strange conundrums keep everyone entertained, as Paul says! Very Happy

I bow to the majority view. I shall have to get my thinking cap on. Maybe it will help keep the Oldtimers at bay.

I can't find the thread I started ages ago about 'amazing bargains' so I will post this here:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/143612291121?ul_noapp=true

Well worth 200 quid - these go-faster stripes will definitely make your Land Rover go lots faster Rolling Eyes

This morning I cut the evergreen part of the inside of the inside hedge. Just as I started to clear up the clippings there was a heavy shower. It didn't last long but Mrs. D dashed out to rescue the washing and put it in the tumble dryer. After cleaning up the clippings it was a short dog walk, the daily fix of Bargain Hunt and then shredding and a bit of garden tidying.
The automatic window opener on the greenhouse has packed up so I'll order another one after the Bank Holiday.
On the dog walk I noticed a queue of traffic. Getting closer I saw debris in the road. Someone driving an "antiques dealer" type of Volvo station wagon had rear ended another car and they'd both pulled off the road to sort it out. The conversation sounded amicable. The front of the Volvo was bent and the bonnet creased but I couldn't see what damage there was on the other car. On returning, the Volvo had gone but the other car was still there.
A good lockdown Bank Holiday was had by both parties.

Yes, sorry, I have to apologise for that. I only popped outside for a few minutes today to do a couple of jobs, but obviously the rain cloud had to pass over Hampshire on its way to my garden from the Atlantic Ocean in order to rain here on me for the exact only 5 minutes that both I was outside and that it's rained here all day Rolling Eyes

What is an automatic window opener? (Yes, I know, I could probably google it - is this something else of the Drovers I should be 'keeping up with'?)

Good to see Lovejoy is still out there making a nuisance of himself.

Geoff, an automatic greenhouse window opener is a cantilever device with a cylinder containing wax I believe. It's clipped to an opening window and when the wax in the cylinder expands with the heat a push rod pushes against the cantilever thus opening the window.
Google "Bayliss Automatic Window Openers for Greenhouses."

Ingenious - I knew I should have googled it. The panes in our greenhouse open automatically when the wind gets up - they fall out! Sad
