  • Just been throwing a ball for Dog V4 up the field. I keep trying to trick him; I put the flinger behind my back with the intention of throwing over my shoulder. I hit myself in the back of the head instead!

    I hope it didn't hurt too much! I'm sure Dog V4 thought it was funny though, lol

    It's one of those things that happen. One time with Dog V3 I had a 'miss-throw'. The ball landed by Mum and Dog V3 ran at her at canine Mach 6. Only in the last few feet did he realise his brakes wouldn't stop him. He tried to jump over Mum and knocked her over! Mum wasn't happy for some inexplicable reason....
    Well, the Volvo disgraced itself on the test drive by breaking down. Cause? Out of fuel. The fuel gauge hasn't worked in twenty years because the sensor and pump are one expensive unit. This means it always shows nearly full....

    According to the internet there are only 60 of this model/year left. A good reason to keep this one going!

    That's going to be an awesome car when it's all finally tuned up, though.

    Yep. Very distinctive noise it makes when cranking. You can hear it in the house yet it's modern diesel 'brother' brought to replace it (unsuccessfully!) cannot be heard. Just some little jobs to think about like the seized tail gate lock and dead fuel gauge that might get done at some point.

    Ridiculous. Gimme pizza, let the pheasants eat fries.
    Old video but :oops:. So many lunatics in need of hugs.

    One of my little issues with people who go out and get a puppy is sometimes they go from 'awww, he/she's so cute' to putting the poor thing into rescue because they can't cope with the canine equivalent of the 'terrible twos'. Patience and training (plus bribery if it's an EBT) gives you a well trained bed hog!

    I hate when people do that!!! I have had some extremely challenging dogs and that thought has never once crossed my mind. A dog is a lifetime commitment.

    Personally... I never get beyond the 'awww' stage. Early pic of Dog V4. A scared, confused animal that would not put the toy down nor give it up. It just takes a little work to form the bond.

    Spitting with rain right now. Forecast has changed again and from 1PM we're due a whole 0.07mm of the wet stuff.

    The 1PMish rain has gone and reappeared at 3PM. Now we're meant to get 0.18mm.

    I wish it would rain here. It Was supposed to yesterday but I am not sure it did. However, it is quite a noticeable temperature change Which is nice.
    Going away for a bit. Stepped out of line over the weekend. I need time to think plus find a punishment for breaking my own rules of etiquette.
    Decided to have a look for animated music videos on youtube. Found a playlist with 377 in it. Only liked fifteen of them!

    Yeah, they’re really hit or miss! I’m the same way with songs though, like I’ll usually go through hundreds of songs on YouTube until I find 5 to 10 that I actually like :/
    The mystery of why the heatwave ended has been solved. Mum went around watering the garden plants. It's a change from mowing the lawn, that normally summons rain.
    Decided to use a picture of my lathe as my profile banner to be a little different.

    Nice!
    I went all copycat and did it too ;)

    Full image for those interested. Currently fitted with a rare 125mm diameter 4 jaw self centring chuck. In the tailstock is something I find invaluable; an extension sleeve. This means I don't need to eject the sleeve every time I want to change the drill bit. This is an imperial machine with dual dials so I can switch between metric and imperial measurements.

    You aren't the only one that remembers Bananaman. I remember the titles but nothing of any of the episodes. Do you remember The Trapdoor?

    Remember Danger Mouse and Duckula. Skeletons... I remember it but never watched it. How about SuperGran?
    New hard drives have arrived and the laptop's drive is being cloned to the new one.

    Managed to move the users folder with an older W10 install file; the code used is incompatible with the newest version. Laptop upgrade working well, sub 40 seconds to fully loaded desktop. Not bad at all.

    SSD are great. I'd upgrade to SSD for main drive. Boot time and just overall faster processing. They're not that expensive either.

    I have SSD's in all my W10 PC's. I elected for a mechanical drive for the laptop because it doesn't need an SSD. I hardly ever use it and most of the time it's on it's just doing updates.
    Hi maycontainthunder.
    Are you receiving notifications for the games?
    For some reason, I am not, so, thought I'd inquire.
    Volvo has been taken away to be checked over to see how much welding it really needs. The verdict will be in late this afternoon. I'm anticipating it needing significantly more than the MOT failure list.

    I feel your pain. I am waiting to be left penniless with my car repair job today. That's another thing that causes me anxiety, car crapola, especially with a car that was maintained as a rental. And it's really a truck like car with very little issues.

    This car gave us twenty eight years reliable service. It's due a birthday.

    Verdict is in... about half what I thought it might cost.
    I had forgotten how much of a pain IDE was to set up. Shall stick to SATA stuff in future. These are PC HDD interfaces for those wondering.
