I really am. But I've no idea what it will be about. This is vexing me. Any ideas?

May not be the right place but I could do with advice on when to plant out my beddings as they are trying to escape from the cold frame.  Is next weekend too early?

It should be your suggestions for revised audax rules, obviously.

Reminds me, I was chatting with a work colleague aboard the mothership a while back, and she revealed that her husband (to be, at the time) was into something called 'audax.' I denied what little knowledge I had on the subject (gleaned from here) and made her explain her interpretation of the subject which was mostly extemporizing getting up early, disappearing all day, and coming home smelling of sweat and garage food and going straight to bed. He makes the sheets stink of Ginsters, apparently.

"How to build a garden path, with steps"

This is a project I am faced with undertaking this weekend, so any pointers would be welcome.

We took delivery of a tonne of hardcore this morning, which will be used for the substrate. The bag doesn't look big enough to be holding a tonne of anything. You certainly couldn't fit 12.5 of me in there - but I guess all that proves is that I'm not as dense as gravel.

That's a skill beyond me. I got an O Level/GCSE in Craft, Design, and Technology for a 'painting area' – basically a glorified box for spray painting in, which some side bits to hold the paints (I have no idea why I choose this). It wasn't very straight and instead of doing proper joins and things, I simply nailed it together and then covered it in eight coats of thick blue paint so no one could tell.

This approach pretty much summarizes my life and career to date.

I bought a new cooker element the other week, it's still sitting there. There are screws involved. I hate screws. Which way are you supposed to turn them. Is this the correct type of screwdriver? Will a proper man materialize behind me and laugh?

I've saved you the trouble by starting one myself so you can relax now.
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

Oh yeah, magic levitating tent update. It's fallen down and now is sort of level, like an actual tent should be, but still levitating on a bed of underpinning vegetation.

If the device is a door, trying approaching it via the garden path. If it still fails to open, try knocking or, if you have one, a key.

Whatever the topic, I will be able to find a dogging angle fairly easily to derail the thread.

You could start a new tropic. We've only got two and they're both quite far away from here.

I’d like to know what topics you’d like me to cover. What’s your top priority?

Hmmm. I wonder if K G-M lurks here.
