what are you all doing?

John (Bluebird), I'm breaking in a new knee, as I had a total knee replacement just over 5 weeks ago. It's going well, but my modelling activities are restricted for a while yet. I'm also in the throes of packing up in anticipation of a house move later this year or, more likely, early next year. The shed at the new house (actually, it's one we've owned for 27 years) has a 40' x 20' shed, so I should have enough room for a workshop

Even if I was fully fit, it's too cold to be in my shed at present as we are experiencing one of the coldest winters for many years - by our sub-tropical standards, anyway. There has been lots of talk about climate change, but this winter is exactly like the ones we used to get over 40 years ago so, by my reckoning, the climate's changing back to what it used to be

It is the same here in 'Sunny' Queensland, first real winter in years.  O0 O0 O0

And I thought it was only us Poms who complained about the weather.  >>:-(
You should try Melbourne, and I hear the snow is quite good on Mt. Buller this year.  8)
Our youngest daughter and her family have the right idea, they are off to Bali at the weekend.  O0

If all we can talk about is 'the weather' then there is nothing of interest going on anywhere.  <:(

Forgetting all about boats this weekend, I'm off to Silverstone for the Classic meeting. Over 1000 drivers in about 800 cars. The cars have a conservative estimate of over 3 million, a few of them worth 5 million plus each. I might have a sore chin after I have finished slobbering over them. Heres to a great weekend :-)) :-))

Camera primed and ready. I made a mistake on my previous thread, it should have been 300 million as a conserative estimate.

Bluebird, when I'm faced with spare time (and it's precious little) I tend to surf over to youtube or spotify and listen to music from my youth. Youtube's great for this, as you can end up anywhere, discovering artists you've never heard before.

And the other great time-occupier are the TED talks (http://www.ted.com/talks). All manner of interesting arcane subjects given a huge audience - and all for free.

Suffering through a miserable heat wave in a non-AC top floor apartment.  I need to get some minor hobby items to continue my build but the walk from bus to hobby store would probably be the death of me (or result in public indecency charges after i strip and run down the road screaming).
