I went to my second paragliding lesson yesterday. I only got one picture and I am the one taking it.


┬áIt’s at the Green Dragons in Surry, Waldingham.

New alternator on Volvo

The Volvo 340 has had a flashing battery light, on and off, excuse the pun, for some time now. I have no idea why it is happening though I did on a forum that the carbon bushes in the alternator do have a tendency to wear. So I got another alternator and fitted it today. I will give the car a run later to see if this solves the issue.

Renault disks and pads

Fitted new front disks and pads to the Renault Megane on Saturday. Turned out to be an easy job.

The volvo was returned to pride of place the garage later.


And still later we put up a book shelf in the office room.


Higher ratio transfer box

Spent the weekend swapping out my low range transfer box for a slightly higher ratio one. Dave lent a hand. We dropped the transfer box out, swapped the center diff for my dog clutch arrangement for Ash Croft. Then refitted the new transfer box. In all it took about 8 hours. Here are a few pictures from the earlier part of the process.

Snowing again

2015-02-05 07.58.27.jpg

This morning on the way into work it started to snow, I think it’s going to stop again soon through, not that it would be too much as fun as we’re in the Renault today. Dave sent me a great picture of Alan’s place yesterday;


A week – all sorts


The street light over the back.

A balloon. Those balloons lasted for two weeks, we put holes in them.

A toy car rental found going through our stuff on Saturday.

An old ten pence piece.


Fixed up the helicopter skids.

Out walking Sunday morning, no body around.
