Re: Rockface - potentially!

That looks good Roger - I sprayed my hill with WS Scenic Cement - it does spray very well. The WS spray bottle is also very good - £5 from Hattons, but a lot more from everywhere else. Barry

Re: Montgreenan

Hi Richard - It's all looking very good indeed. I had trouble with "air bubbles" under the backscene. I used self-adhesive ID Backscenes, which were very carefully applied to sealed ply backing boards, and I still got air bubbles, and sadly they don't go away with time unless you prick each one and ...

Re: Sunrise this morning

At the other end of the day, now that we have clear skies just after sunset, Venus is very obvious, I went in to the garden last night and thought it was someone in the trees with an LED torch - very bright and very low in the sky - should be around for a few more weeks.

Re: Change of car? Maybe.

So many cars come with alloy wheels nowadays, it is very easy for a pothole to take the wheel out of true. Some of the company's that refurbish alloy wheels are able to correct them. One of my boys paid £25 to have an alloy wheel straightened(?).

Re: Forced to slow down.

I get that envelope every couple of years. I think it continues like that until your seventy four, after that you have to ask for it. They have now changed the format for sending the sample - only one, not three - much easier to deal with!

Re: Forced to slow down.

I had my heart stress MRI yesterday - took about an hour. I was a little apprehensive, but it was all very straightforward with no problems. I won't get the results for a while, but hopefully all ok. Life goes on as usual. I have just received the letter with my follow-up appointment following my M...
