Thanks go to Wiggo for forwarding on the baton...

A new thread has begun!

The following are the Rules:
-------------

1. Winner of the last thread starts the new one with a post of these rules.
2. Chooses a future event which triggers the winner, e.g. post number, date-time, and records it privately somehow (yellow sticky, etc.)
3. Everyone has fun posting until the target event is reached.
4. When the target is reached, old winner posts declaration of new winner and also PMs them.
5. Shortly after this a Mod will lock the recently won thread. (My preference is for the winner to ask the mods to lock the old thread after the new one is started.)
6. No double posts. Violators buy drinks or a meal for the house in Rocky's.
7. Additional rule retained from the last round - No posts that APPEAR to be blank - these will be ignored or deleted. (Sig lines do not count as part of a post)

And be Excellent to one another!

Have fun!
Martin

It was all a matter of luck Martin, this time it was yours. ;-)

As I kill another 20mins I'll do a report on my solar system. During the longest sunniest day of summer saw a 58.3kw/hr day, but now as we fast approach the shortest day yesterday's sunny day saw it barely make a 39.1kw/hr day so it'll be interesting to see what difference a week makes.

Anyhow I guess that I'd better start rugging up for tip run.

Cheers.

While it is still safe, Congrats Martin.

I got another 2 trips to the tip in today, so there's no more rubbish left laying around here, returned the old ute and then enjoyed a few beers at the pub along with a 3 meats roast dinner before returning home.

Now I'm ready for a spinal reset as the mercury here reaches our expected max of 12C (feels like 8C)..

Cheers.

The mercury here has reached Frostville, -2C (feels like -5C) outside (while it's a comfy 20C inside), and I guess that I'd better go and prepare myself for P.O.E.T.S. Day.

Cheers.

It's 87F outside the desert studio and 82 inside, Sat 101 is predicted, only 96 for today.

I managed to get 2 clips super glued to the wood paneling in my bedroom, though I had to press for 10 seconds and wait 24 hours for maximum grip, but they seem to be holding an RG6 cable.

Now if only that Liheap letter and it's contents would get here. sigh.

Next month in July I plan on installing a new outlet in a bathroom and moving the gfci outlet to the big bathroom so that I need only 1 button to push instead of 2 and 50'-55' of walking to get the circuit working, the home needs a new larger breaker box as the current one is not original.
In July I'm calling a plumber to install a new kitchen faucet and fix the valving for the ice maker so I can turn off the ice maker while letting the faucet work.

In August buy and assemble a bathroom vanity, in September buy the bathroom sink, in October have both installed as that will fix my rotting vanity in there, then have a toilet installed by a local plumber in November or in October if funds permit, I need to see if a flooring contractor would fix the floor under any new flooring where it's a bit soft, like in the rear bathroom or the hallway or in the kitchen.

In December I need to buy 5 gallons of exterior white paint, trim color? n/a.

In January-February 2024 I need to buy the last window.

If you're feeling to warm you can cool off here at a frosty -6C (feel like -10C).

The sunshine must of been better yesterday than the day before as I got a 39.4kw/hr day in.

Anyhow another sunny day is to be had and as the sun starts to show itself it time for a coffee.

Cheers.

Thanks all.

And by 'eck, no idea about how many wins but must be only a handful or less?

Meanwhile, whilst out 'n' about, doubt I suffered anything like 30 deg C... But did suffer 7 deg C for a period for the sake of science...

All good fun all in the UK!

It's still nowhere near warm outside as yet, currently it's just hit the 10C mark (feels like 6C) here (14C is expected), but I'll trying a bit of pruning out in this glorious sunshine (while being out of the breeze) and see how I go.

Cheers.

Maybe someone named Marvin? ;)

I've no idea, every once in a while someone here gets picked, dumb luck works for me as that is how I've won.

With the mercury here back at Frostville it's time for me to call it a day here and prepare myself for the weekend by snuggling down in my nice warm bed.

Cheers.
