Hi Corposant

I adore Astilbes but at my home it is too hot, the ground is not acid and not wet

Too bad!

A rare breed indeed, Mick...she was very attentive when I explained the workings of the Akula to her, and I think she sort of understood my description of how to insert the torpedoes, build up the operating pressure, and then fire...   ;D

 ok2 My boats are banned in the bathroom Mick,goes back to the time when I had this boat with a leak that I could not find so I filled the bath and added some red veg dye,found the leak but spent 2 days cleaning the bath and I was in the dog house for ages and I will not do that again,many years latter and I now know how far I can push the envelope,so lesson learned keep the little lady happy and she will let you play your boats,Ray. ok2

I can remember a silly thing I did many years ago...I fired up the OPS .65 motor in my MRH Silak and put it in the bath to sort the settings out on the carb. I shouldn't have done that....


Most of the water in the bath went on the ceiling, the rest was all over the walls and the floor, and whole house stank of nitro fuel for days.
To say that the wife of the time wasn't impressed is a massive understatement...I was threatened with all sorts of nasty sounding medical things if I ever did that again.


I went over to electric powered boats shortly afterwards... ;D
