I like the shape of the NZ boat. Sleak and smooth, and everything you need for good hydrodynamics and aerodynamics.
High flyers, these ones. [:D]
Same "standard" foils on all boats.
If the Queenslander is on high stumps, storage underneath is the same as the house. [:D]
I've seen 4 cars, 2 boats, the laundry and a workshop under one.
And here I was thinking you worked with Roger Penske on a race car team
And here we are suffering another Antarctic blast.
Gerry, the same as most humans on this world but the steroids I'm on for the sarcoids weakens the immune system, allowing the fungus to grow. In other people with good immune systems, it doesn't get...
I hope all goes okay with the scan and Covid, Ian.
It's bloody scarey out there in the big world.
We called in at Yarragon last week-end for Rose to check out one of the shops. Even though there...
Got the biopsy results yesterday arvo.
No cancer, not sarcoids this time. Not even much room in my lung, just other fungii. Yep, got a fungal infection in the left lung, so off to see another...
Well, the air has been sucked out and the balloon is fully reinflated and I'm back home. No heavy lifting or over- exerting myself for a couple of weeks. Just got to wait for the biopsy results now
Thanks, Nota, yes it is like a friendly social gathering with lots of physical distancing on here. [thumb]
Hoping to, Stewart. You know you've been around the hospital too long when the radiologist knows you by your name [ohno]
Thanks, Guido, I'm only a few years older than you. And all the best with your recovery also.
Ken, thanks for that, and hope all's going well with you. You know you're getting old when the conversation turns to comparing Bowel movements[:D]
Up to 2016 I had an extremely short medical...
Thanks, Ian, everyone is fairly sure it is the sarcoids, but they have to check to be certain
I thought I'd better do an update.
With all the follow-up scans, there have been lumps showing up. Biopsies have shown them to be sarcoids.
So now I'm on steroids to try and control them. Latest...
A couple of little towns in East Gippsland, that were badly affected by the fires earlier in the year, have had to shut down for cleaning and testing. This is due to an inconsiderate lock-down...
Rose found that one in an Opp Shop for about $10.
T'was a bargain. [:D]
I have a model of one that I have added additional detail to the motor and electrics366159366161366163
It would cut down on the rolling coal problem. [:D]
-2.5 C with a heavy fog this morning, clearing to a sunny, very cool 13 C with a chilly sou-westerly breeze (straight off Antarctica)
Similar for tomorrow, but it could be frost tomorrow and get to...
Looks good, Herbert, What scale is it? HO?
I used to scratch-build RC boats, Electric power (no stink boats for me) including a 75' Pilot Launch at 1/4" to 1', 13" inboard runabout at 1" to 1'
My first brand new car was a Hyundai Excel similar to this, followed by a couple of Sonatas.
Call it for what it is, Farting. [xx(]
