After seeing the failed attempts of freeing the stranded mega ship Evergreen in the Suez Canal, does anyone know the number for
 International Rescue (Thunderbirds)? I'm sure they can help.

F.A.B. (finally afloat boat?)


Maybe it would be worth the Egyptians buying a couple of those anchor handlers that are tied up in Scotland as escort vessels through the single channel areas and spend a little on either doubling the width or creating a second channel where possible to complete the dual lane they were promising.


And who stayed up all night to watch all this going on?

Now Ever Given has been 'freed up', does that mean:

1. All my eBay / cheap Chinese crap is  finally going to get delivered?

2. All future purchases of eBay / cheap Chinese crap is going to be a lot more expensive?

3. Petrol prices up again?

4. Some reason, domestic gas / electric ..... & home insurance up too?!

5. What about the price of eggs?

I was also wondering, seeing as it's a dog, digging in the Egyptian heat, does that make him a hot diggity dog? %%

Could be a way of getting a wider canal, bit by bit.
