Very strange. I've looked on Prime video and can find Bosch ( thought it was just a film didn't realise it was a series) and started to put it on my list to watch another time. Apparently it isn't available here. I was searching on ipad. Looked on laptop and its available. Its going to take me a long long time to watch them. Hope they are good.

Took the bike out for a spin this morning and headed through Melton Mowbray. Big mistake, there were crews surface gritting from the Grantham Rd with tail-backs at rolling traffic lights. Loads of bikers but most taking it very easy. One muppet trying to overtake too fast and came down and scrawked his pride and joy, no injury just hurt pride, you can't believe some folk.

 

Clouds of dust everywhere, not good news for quite a few in the opposite tail-back. Classics, at least half a dozen Rover P4s and some Triumphs all polished up lovely, getting caked. I bet they were spitting, passed more heading towards Melton as I rode through, must be a show somewhere. Some folk won't be happy.:(

Reminds me of the time I was driving over the Tomintoul Pass in teh Cirngorms and I caught up with a string of cars all doing around 20MPH behind a caravan. I had been in the mountains all day and just wanted to get home so, knowing the road well I realised that if I didn't get past right now I would be stuck on a series of bends for the next umpteen miles. So, off I went haring past them all, only to find that fresh road chippings had been laid and that the leader was going slow to avoid sliding off into the valley below!. A few slurring slides and I was back in control but with a rather big dent in my pride.  However, I was past the mobile road block and saved at least half an hour on my journey.

We like them, Nonna. Only thing is, each series seems to be an amalgamation of 2 or 3 novels so there’s a lot going on and it’s sometimes hard to keep track.

The novels are excellent - in my opinion (and I’m told I’m hard to please!)

The bottom picture was taken by my brother in law a couple of years ago when they went to the London - Brighton run. Don't know about the top one. was watching a you tube clip on old engines so took a screen shot. The voices sounded like East European. B.

I think these electric bikes are limited to around 250W (not sure) what sort of power do these little Suffolk mower engines push out? I saw someone flying around Newark the other week on an upright bike with a small engine for power,it was a noisy little bugger as well,looked to be properly built,no number plates or anything,then again if he came from Tolney lane,well say no more,what about a mower engine on the penny farthing? now theres a challenge

Brilliant Brew,seen plenty of Velo-Solex but never seen a steam bike.The American kids put small petrol engines on their Schwinn cycles,(maybe not so much these days) but they have different road vehicle laws to the UK,shame really

I am this afternoon finally starting my casual job as a scribe (sounds posh). It hasn’t been an easy process. Feels like I have filled in hundreds of forms (the application form was a nightmare and as soon as I filled in one form it seemed another 2, 3 or even 4 popped up, can understand why they are desperate for people to do this) making it a very stressful experience and one I do not want to go through again. In fact over the weekend I went into meltdown and nearly didn’t finish the last 4 forms, enough seemed enough.

 

I understand they have to be careful as you are working with young people but it did seem a bit over the top to be honest. I had to do everything by email (which I hate, might be old fashioned but would rather have paper forms), a lot of the information was duplicated, think they know more about me than I do about myself. Anyway it is done now and will be on their “list” so won’t have to jump through the same hoops next year. 

 

Now on all I have to do is remember all the rules and regulations, not get writers cramp and not lose my voice (have to read as well as write for some of them or just read).  Hopefully it will be an enjoyable experience after all this, if not I will have to grit my teeth and think of the money!

We have had a very pleasant day today, celebrating my Daughters birthday. She didn't want any fuss, just a little family  day out, so it was fish and chips by the river at Bridgenorth and back to hers for prezzie opening and cake! it's hard to believe my youngest is 50 today, both my offspring are in their 5th decade now.

Tomorrow is my sisters birthday, she is going through a tough time health wise, so it will be just a prezzie opening visit and celebration properly when she is well.

Son is 52 on Sunday, so we are all getting together for lunch at Cosmos W-ton on Saturday, to celebrate the birthdays of us all, Daughter, Son, and myself,because I was ill on my birthday and wasn't well enough to celebrate.

I think the bank balance will be a bit shaky after this week. :biggrin:
