British Summer!
« on: July 06, 2012, 08:30:49 AM »

Does anyone have a source or website for plans of an Ark! 

I don't have the Gopher wood but I've got loads of ply and MDF.   {-) {-) {-) %%

I wish we could!  They've forcast a average month's rainfall in the next 24 hours.  Admittedly it's still only halfway up the ducks but we're battening down the hatches.

In a rare break in the weather yesterday I had a very relaxing afternoon sailing at Black Park.  Water like a millpond, and crystal clear.  A baby duckling tried to have a go at my White Ensign when I stopped to let them pass  {-)

However, guess what, the celestial hosepipe is working again now. It seems to hardly ever stop.

Ah, nostalgia and summers that went on forever. Bob - looking out my window now is just simply depressing - even the Koi are complaining at the lack of sunshine.
Every year I have a running battle with duckweed - it loves the sun - this year I've hardly had any by comparison.

Dvae ........ I can't even be bothered correcting that.

Even in those nostalgia long summers you refer to there were no hosepipe bans.  Now they are using perpetual rain to stop people using them.
Koi pond blanket weed has been non existant this year, but I have watercress in the upper pool which is very effective for that.

My 18 yr old Koi Pond fills much of the back garden, little do the Koi realise that this is soon to become a 4 ft deep model submarine test facility  %%
Planting water cress in the top pool above the waterfall has virtually eliminated blanket weed, which I do not want fouling my submarine propellors either.

I have a lot fishing line criss-crossed between the tops of the fence posts. 
ie:  A Bikini is like a barbed wire fence - "protects the property, without obscuring the view" !
At one stage I had seriously considered mounting a Royal Navy Phalanx gun on the garage roof, but that might have upset Heathrow Air Traffic Controllers.

on BBC News:  New European weather satellite launched.
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-18624377

Maybe it was faults and a Tx failure in the old satellite that caused the weather to be stuck permanently on rain?
Will the new equipment solve the problem ?  Is it based on the 'Planet' T5 ?  What is the Fail Safe system on loss of signal?
