    Yeah Friday, much needed. May have really enjoyed thirsty Thursday but needed to hydrate after what looks like the last ride for a while on the summer bike

    Morning folks, sounds a bit blowy out there. I suspect today will be much like yesterday which was much like the day before that which was much ....

    Saturday tomorrow so that means a couple of laptop free days.
    If you’re successful SG are you going to market the stuff?

    Oh don't worry, I have seen the effects.

    Lovely morning if a little chilly.

    I cut the last 1/4 off an oil barrel to use as a tub and then soaked Porker#1 wishbones in petrol overnight to remove the Dinitrol/grime.

    Worked a treat.

    You see, if you were like me SG, you would have lots of chemicals and useful stuff at your disposal, at home.

    I have Phosphoric acid, petrol, methyl ethyl keytone, Sodium N-(2-carboxyethyl)-N-(2-ethylhexyl)-β-alaninate , ethanol, Alcohols,C12-14,ethoxylated, sulfates, sodium salts (in various mixes)...

    I also have a steam cleaner, a blow torch, an angle grinder, a chop saw, a circular saw and a fine selection of hammers amongst other things.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again. This is sungod at work.



    This is he on his bicycle, after a good old bask.



    More worky work for me. Probably also crosswords though, and a couple of good coffees from my machine.

    actually, fignon/i do bear a resemblance, i'm not as tolerant as he was though

    Are those all in your basement?

    Just listening to the latest from our leaders on a Webex. Mixed news shall we say....will do some real work soon.

    Also I discovered this morning that the hounds bloody love bacon and they now treat me as some sort of God. I have bestowed honorary Bottom Bracketeer status on them :)

    Morning, first round of update meetings done. Boss has probably got appendicitis so now I have to go join the SMT meetings. Oh what fun.

    Turbo set up for an outside session later. Red wine decanted to accompany date night dinner (cote du boeuf for those who want some pointless info). Just have to avoid starting it post turbo.

    Onwards and upwards my friends

    More pointless info would be what is the wine? Must be a good un, else why the long decant.

    Last time I had a cote de boeuf, I seared it hard, then bunged it in a 60 degree C oven until internal temperature was 57 degrees C (medium rare). That was about an hour and a half for a 1 kg piece. Give it 15 mins rest then carve.

    Sounds like a nice coktail of explosives you could produce there (not that I know anything about that type of thing o:)

    Raining apparently here though I'm outside at the moment and the sky is mainly blue so Mr Fish got it wrong again. Slowly buffing the wax up though I'm tempted to get the power tools out for speed.
    Also debating re doing my office desk setup, having been away from it an come back I can see how censored it is.

    Probably just the contents of his drinks cabinet.

    Took a risk and visited the city today, to see chiropractor as my back will kill me before any fecking virus at this rate.

    Fiddled with bike in shed on return. Cold wet and windy outside, so no chainsaw or other fun had.

    i think i'm missing caustic soda and cream of tartar, which might be enough to make a very dirty product, don't think i'd want to touch it though

    I have Cream of tartar, the Caustic soda, I could procure. I could leave something for the Herpes Courier. When you send/collect something, you get a profile of the driver. He likes, books, Star Wars and quiz shows. As soon as I saw that, I took an instant dislike.

    Maybe the next parcel he collects will tick.
