Yesterday it was fine sunny and warm, sounds of folks mowing their lawns, so thought it time to gather some tools and head of to fork over the front garden borders, get rid of the remaining debris from last years growth. The ground was rock hard, but easy enough to break up. Managed the largest border and intentions of carrying today, but just too cold in the wind, Hopefully warmer tomorrow.

A group of ex5 squadron Lightning guys, me included, headed out to Bruntingthorpe for a day playing with Lightnings. The weather played its part, staying sunny and warm, with a cool breeze. Mission, to do an anti-det reheat run on XS904. All went well with a superb run carried out by Andy Bonsell. Awesome and spectacular event which was enjoyed by all who attended.
After catching up with the lads, it was time to get down to the task in had, helped top up the wing fuel tanks, assisted in opening the canopy and had a bit of lunch.
It was then time to put the old girl through her paces, and she obliged very well. A spectacular No1 reheat light up with me sitting about 12 feet away on the tarmac, what power, vibration and it is no wonder this old girl draws in the crowds on open days.

My favourite is Chicken Madras, today my wife was down the local market and brought back a pot of Madras sauce sold by an Indian vendor, a couple of packets of chicken breasts and left me to it. A big pan full just done and cooling off, ready to be packed in cartons for the freezer. I will of course be keeping one out for tonight's treat.
