I purchased some drill bits from Ebay, very cheap ones, but it said that they were cobalt so I thought I’d give them a try for 2 and a bit quid.
In fairness the drills did have HSS stamped on them, but I suspect that stands for “Highly Soft Steel” in this instance, they’re almost certainly made from Chinesium. In future I’ll pay reasonable money to a reputable shop for decent drill bits. Lesson learned.
We visited Yorkshire and York last weekend. We visited the national train museum. I was amazed by the cut open steam locomotive, I took the photo looking towards the front of the loco to the right of the photo with the fire box in the foreground to the left. The river is the Ouse and the house is Beningbrough Hall.
Having rooted my phone I took some pictures as I did it. But since I had to use my camera I hadn’t had the incing to get the card reader out and put the pictures up here.. now I finally found the motivation.
I just realised that I didn’t post an pictures of the inside and since I had put some many pictures in the previous I thought I’d make this one of it’s own. Perhaps check out what the places looks like in 3D: https://goo.gl/maps/xaSTQu5YoAF2 Google Earth would be better.. Check it out! Anyways, here are my pictures.
Hannah and I went to Budapest for the Christmas Market, a trip organised by the sports and social club at work. We took with us many thousands of Forints. A pretty worthless currency, currently about 340 HUR to 1 GBP. They could do with knocking a few zeros of. I saw a very tatty Fiat 500 for 200k. We had a lovely time looking around the town and the Christmas Market. We went up to the top of St. Stephen’s Basilica where there are stunning views across the city, also it’s very grand inside.
We visited some friends in Elgin, Scotland last weekend. We did not see the Lochness monster but I did spot a Liebherr excavator. We also visited the Glenfiddich distillery (single malt wisky) and the Baxters plant (soup). I notice that both places are by appointment to some of our royals and even other counties royals too.
The pictures are of Lochness and Urquhart Castle, The Lochness monster in the form of a nice Liebherr excavator and the beach at Lossiemouth. Glenfiddich distillery and Baxters plant next to the river Spey.
I travelled to Sweden on Sunday and returned yesterday. I travelled through Stockholm’s Arlanda airport, stayed the night there, then on Monday travelled on to Kiruna which is close to the LKAB Mine site, in Svapavaara, that we visited. The weather was fair, it was below zero but above -10 all the time we were there. We stayed in Camp Ripan and managed to see the Northern lights.
Craig took pictures with his camera as my phone wouldn’t pick up anything.
