Have just designed a new website which is a one stop shop, database,maps and photo albums. The site is basically a base where lots of material is held in one place. For anyone enthusiastic about the English Electric Lightning, this is the site to visit. Click here to visit

It would appear that our bathroom needs a revamp to something more modern. Mind you the suite colour is out-dated by a long way, no not avocado which we had in one house, but a pinkish hue. The new suite will be white for sure. The loo and washbasin to match will be enclosed in cabinets along the length of the wall and we need a new shower, the old electric one has been OK but getting old, something like myself. A new shower we intend to have will be plumbed in to use the combi boiler water supply.
A suspended ceiling is on the cards with LED down lighters, which will look superb when fitted and lastly the old radiator removed, and a large heated towel rail fitted in its place. Almost forgot all the tiling replaced, and a solid tiled floor laid. Question, what do you do when it all kicks off, and you need the loo?

On Monday, one of the cables in my up and over garage doors snapped, the main spring under tension previously, recoiled and one end shot out and over the outside of the door. Good old eBay and ordered a couple of new cables, still apparently being made. The cables arrived today and after some heavy pulling to pre tension the spring, managed to get the job done. Not an easy job, but following the instructions that came with the cables helped.

Normally nobody takes any photos of the ground crew doing their bit, but we had a visitor Scott McPhee who had travelled 500 miles from Scotland and was given special access to the QRA hangar who did a great job of recording some brilliant shots of us at work, so thanks for that Scott, your photo posted above.
Weather was superb, sunny and hot for a change, and made the photographers happy with decent lighting to get their shots.

Just invested in a new tablet to replace the Samsung android one I used, just a bit small for comfort, given my eyesight. Now have an Apple iPod which has a larger screen and it fits the bill nicely, much easier to use and wireless connection is a lot more stable.
