  • Currently I'm DJing for Dad. Second PC set up next to me and I'm playing music for him via utube on his wireless headphones.

    That's so cool! I wish my parents would tolerate me doing stuff like that.
    Your parents seem so supportive and that's awesome!

    He went to sleep part way through. Maybe I'm not cut out to be a DJ. :D
    Hour clearing scrap from the back garage. 5 wheelbarrows gone and barely a dent made. Probably a couple of tons to go at least.

    I was thinking "that's a lot of wheelbarrows" and then I realized you probably mean barrow-loads of scraps, not just extra wheelbarrows.

    Scrap, like trash?
    Or scrap like scrap metal?

    Scrap metal. Dad hoarded odd bits of steel and now that his health isn't good he has agreed to dispose of all of it. We have dozens of electric motors, electrical cable and yet more metal to get rid of! I'm keeping that aluminium and brass/bronze though, I can use that!
    Two days spent organising one of my collections. So far fourteen boxes organised. Now I have to condense five boxes into four because I don't have space for five.
    Just had some random guy at the door wanting to buy the old Volvo for banger racing. ERM, NO.

    They are getting rare. Many cars were a common sight once but now are on the endangered list. One example is the original UK Ford Sierra. There is only one base model known to survive. Salted roads are a killer for cars.

    You have to clean the undercarriage monthly in states that use a lot of salt.

    We're keeping it off the roads while they are salted. The new one isn't best suited to short journeys (doesn't get up to temperature) which didn't bother the old one. Such is progress.
    Just found out where the xmas cake was hiding. It's utterly terrified. BWAHAHAHAHA!

    I found some cake in the back of the fridge earlier. It's gone now, it was a massacre.

    My dogs have discovered where their Christmas presents and stockings are. Now it's going to be the ultimate test of impulse control lol

    Dog V4's presents are in sealed packets. They think this is good enough to hide but come Christmas day they shall be doomed!
    Dentist was fun. Needed a filling and I hate needles. The only time it hurt was when he sprayed cold air on the tooth.

    Your wisdom teeth actually erupted/came through the gum and show, as teeth?

    Mine were not ever going to emerge. They were stuck under other teeth.
    So I had all four out, one day.

    Mine were causing problems and damaged one of my molars so they had to be extracted. My lower jaw has never quite recovered. I had to have a tooth filled, my first ever. It came out during COVID and I couldn't get a dentist so I filled it myself lol!

    @tree , on my upper jaw they formed and came through but their opposite numbers in my lower jaw did not form. @MildredHubble , ouch!
    Borrowed a log splitter. This is a fun thing on some of the really dried out logs! Made short work of the five lumps brought down so that's us sorted for a day or two.

    Electric. It took me a couple of go's to learn what the limits were. If it's dry tomorrow I'll crack on with the remaining logs. I have no idea if there's going to be another cold snap so best to be prepared.

    This year we have a new wood splitter.
    Splits wood in two.
    Also has an attachment so the wood can be split into four sections.
    Going to be cold again tonight. Keep warm everyone.

    I have been throwing wood into the fireplace non stop for three straight days now, it's -20 here, really hoping this cold spell ends soon.

    I took some precautions this morning. Filled the woodbasket and a wheelbarrow which is right outside the back door. The path is covered in ice patches.

    Nope. It's a 1989 740 GLE 2.3 with Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection. If I believe what some sites say there are only 60 of this year/model left. This one is made more unusual by the fact it has ABS and Aircon. Both were options this year. Despite it's age it is known to be able to hit 37mpg on a run.

    37mpg isn't bad at all. Best fuel economy car I ever had, and supposedly best ever from a petrol was a 1 litre Suzuki Celerio. Capable of over 70mpg with the Dual Jet version. I had the regular version and got a regular 60mpg+. My current car is a 1.2 petrol Hyundai i20, 2014 model. I get a constant 50-55mpg from that. My van fuel economy will be dire. I think I might remap it to get a bit better MPG.

    Nice. Dad's old van once clocked 39.9mpg on the motorway while towing an empty plant trailer. Have a look and see if there is some kind of spoiler available for above the cab on your van. I see quite a few box vans with them fitted. No idea what it will do for fuel economy.
    Mum took Dog V4 for a walk and brought me a Bounty bar!!!!!!!

    I find swim baths so unhygienic and I don´t go there. sweat, people who not shower before going to swim, many people who urinate into it...

    people are often like hoglets

    I always wondered why I was the only one on the swimming lake who went into the bushes when he had to go to toilet (there was no normal toilet)...
