I stopped on an old railway bridge today, looked over the high, iron sides and there was a Greenbank Road. I didn't get a photo because I didn't have a camera with me and it was beyond the capabilities of my phone, but it's here.

Rhys W, this week I modified my Vox DA-5 and because you inspired me to get one back in 2009, I naturally thought of you. I moved the unused battery container so that I had space to put velcro inside the cabinet and on the base of the mains adapter. A hole drilled in the back flap and hey presto, I now have a much more easily mobile micro amp.

Very good! My transformer sits halfway along a wall in the living room, so I'd have to re-arrange things if I tried that.

After seeing this I was motivated to try a related idea. The amp sounds great but it can be a little boxy, I know the sound from the line out is decent, so I dug into my box of cables and adapters and plugged the line out into a spare channel on my hi-fi... the sound of this little amp through floor-standing speakers is massive!

There's a Badgers Close in our village and one owner has called their house (very chavvy if you already have a number) "Badger's End".

We call it "Badger's Arse".

It always makes me think of Wow and Martin109 (who were brave enough to let me stoke for them) and Clarion and Butterfly (who provided me with shoes and cleats so I could do so clipless and were so encouraging and enthusiastic about it on the Manningtree Warty) and fboab (who undertook ridiculous COR on the tandem with No2 daughter at Cannock's Chase and made me nearly fall off my bike laughing at the same time and let EldestCub stoke for her which put the biggest grin ever on his face) and of course her and Our Mr Smith who turned up at the Den onna tandem for the AGM and neatly proved that my bike parking can indeed accommodate a tandem.... dangerous knowledge :)

The text that goes with that is quite, sort of, interesting, too.
Quote
So a couple of summers ago, I was at Glade festival. It was fantastic, a nice friendly place with biassed cross-section of society. There were lots of people in outlandish getups, and there were stalls where you could costume yourself similarly. It was at this point that an increasing number of chubby girls started walking past wearing those tiny, glittery, fluffy fairy wings.

"Gah! You, you're not aerodynamic! If you were a REAL fairy you wouldn't be able to fly with those pissy little bloody wings!!! I'm gonna make a REAL pair of wings that I'd be able to fly with!!?!"

I then collapsed from a punctuation overdose. The idea was lodged though. I would make fairy wings to scale, or at least as near to scale as I could. And so I did - of course they weren't actually to scale, the wire wings would've collapsed under their own weight and I wouldn't have been able to move anywhere, but they had roughly a six foot wingspan and I was satisfied. They also flapped nicely if I wiggled my shoulders back and forth.

Here I am in a cafe with them on. Spot the aubergine.

I did a show on an (80s vintage) Zero88 Alphapack and a couple of 4-ways, once.  It was crap.

Oh, and once with real dimmers, but a couple of these as a desk:

Traditionally, of course, a cribbage board has a curved track, whereas a domino board has straight lines.  I think that's largely forgotten now.

The control box at Sheffield Crucible had a massive pin patch panel, and I had to repatch during at least one show.

Didn't take a picture, but thought of this forum when I opened my wardrobe this morning to choose a shirt to wear for work.  The first shirt I noticed was a brown shirt, which was next to a black shirt.   ;D  For the record, I do not own jackboots.

TJ's Tearoom, Cracoe, Skipton. About 5km north of JD Cycles.

A nice big sign saying cyclists and walkers welcome.

Unfortunately I was on my Coast to Coast and not carrying a proper camera and couldn't stop.

Talking of re-creations, I went to see my nephew in a modern version of Twelfth Night at the Royal Exchange in Manchester a few years ago.  He entered down an aisle wearing a pink denim jacket and blue jeans and strumming a guitar.  My heart nearly stopped - and then I felt very old!

In the eternity-honoured traditions of Wowbagger, I could insult them in Welsh, if only to call them "mochyn du".

I would also be able to sing to them in Welsh, as long as they only wanted one song.

Other than being at the bottom of a bloody great hill which puts me off going there.

Although the Weather Oak ales are v. good.  And it's the last pub that I know of that still(?) has a tray of cheese and onion or ham and tomato cobs behind the bar.

I missed a trick recently. For some reason I never noticed that a local takeaway was named "tj's" until a couple of weeks ago.

I thought "I must remember to take a picture of that for the thread . . ."

It closed the next day and the sign was gone.

What does північних mean? I'm sure it's nothing to do with piwo and "brown", which would be the other possibility in Polish (though seems to be used exclusively of eyes) doesn't fit either.

The bishop, Patriarch Sviatoslav.

It means northern, північ = north .

That fits in many ways. So пів would be half (or middle in this context, I suppose we can say halfway), and ніч would be night, and північ also means midnight?

Yes.  The opposite is, obviously, південь.

While we're on the subject, I went on a CTC ride the other weekend and we ended up at the Clarion House, built in 1911 by Nelson ILP, at Roughlee, near Burnley.  It is full of banners and pictures of people like Keir Hardie - real tears in the eyes stuff.  Here you go:-

I definitely meant to get jeans. The only criterion for colour was that they were less '90s stonewashed' than the current pair.

Always turn black jeans inside out before washing.

The ones to be replaced were formerly blue, and probably genuine 90s :)

Always turn black jeans inside out before washing.

The ones doing the replacing went *straight* into the wash before folding could even be contemplated. Why do things from charity shops always smell like that?

I wish my jeans lasted that long.  I'm strongly left-kneed, and tend to destroy them there, if the crotch seam doesn't fall to bits first.

I was an awful lot skinnier in the 90s, of course...

Mysterious purple pipe running down the middle of the M1 for miles and miles.  We assume some sort of project to pipe Ribena to Scotland, managed by a certain forumite who presumably lost interest before they could install the return pipeline for the Irn Bru.

There is a club of Christinas - women called Christina, who meet up a couple of times a year and... I don't know quite what they do, but it's an association whose only purpose is to unite women called Christina. Perhaps they accept Kristens as well and that's the purpose of the sticker?

Tarp-curious after recent camping exploits and reading a post on here this morning, I used a tape measure to better get an idea of size.

As it unrolled to the end...

Yes I keep forgetting that, strong black coffee is default for a - don't speak before first cup in the AM is gone - Dane, just like milk in tea is for Brit. I have never jumped on that band wagon, because I don't like to wake up in the morning, sometime in the afternoon maybe.

Today's email from mcgonagall online:

THE INAUGURATION OF THE UNIVERSITY COLLEGE, DUNDEE
by William McGonagall

Good people of Dundee, your voices raise,
And to Miss Baxter give great praise;
Rejoice and sing and dance with glee,
Because she has founded a College in Bonnie Dundee.

Therefore loudly in her praise sing,
And make Dundee with your voices ring,
And give honour to whom honour is due,
Because ladies like her are very few.

'Twas on the 5th day of October, in the year of 1883,
That the University College was opened in Dundee,
And the opening proceedings were conducted in the College Hall,
In the presence of ladies and gentlemen both great and small.

Worthy Provost Moncur presided over the meeting,
And received very great greeting;
And Professor Stuart made an eloquent speech there,
And also Lord Dalhousie, I do declare.

Also, the Right Hon W. E. Baxter was there on behalf of his aunt,
And acknowledged her beautiful portrait without any rant,
And said that she requested him to hand it over to the College,
As an incentive to others to teach the ignorant masses knowledge,

Success to Miss Baxter, and praise to the late Doctor Baxter, John Boyd,
For I think the Dundonians ought to feel overjoyed
For their munificent gifts to the town of Dundee,
Which will cause their names to be handed down to posterity.

The College is most handsome and magnificent to be seen,
And Dundee can now almost cope with Edinburgh or Aberdeen,
For the ladies of Dundee can now learn useful knowledge
By going to their own beautiful College.

I hope the ladies and gentlemen of Dundee will try and learn knowledge
At home in Dundee in their nice little College,
Because knowledge is sweeter than honey or jam,
Therefore let them try and gain knowledge as quick as they can.

It certainly is a great boon and an honour to Dundee
To have a College in our midst, which is most charming to see,
All through Miss Baxter and the late Dr Baxter, John Boyd,
Which I hope by the people of Dundee will long be enjoyed

Now since Miss Baxter has lived to see it erected,
I hope by the students she will long be respected
For establishing a College in Bonnie Dundee,
Where learning can be got of a very high degree.

"My son, get knowledge," so said the sage,
For it will benefit you in your old age,
And help you through this busy world to pass,
For remember a man without knowledge is just like an ass.

I wish the Professors and teachers every success,
Hoping the Lord will all their labours bless;
And I hope the students will always be obedient to their teachers
And that many of them may learn to be orators and preachers.

I hope Miss Baxter will prosper for many a long day
For the money that she has given away,
May God shower his blessings on her wise head,


 :)

The first paragraph of an article I read today:

T.S.Eliot's Prufrock and Other Observations, his first substantial collection of poetry, was published in 1917, the same year as the poet Edward Thomas was killed at his gun emplacement during the Battle of Arras.  The contrast between Eliot, the 23-year-old merging urban Modernist, and the older writer, who was bringing new realism to pastoral poetry, signalled a change of direction in English literature.

A nice bit of synchronicity, that.

Is the narwhal an original feature by an artist ignorant of the habitats of narwhals and pengs or a 'shopped addition ;D

My chum Terry works in London Zoo and spent much of a recent working day chasing an escaped peng armed only with a bucket of mackerel.

Wish I could take credit for the narwhal.  I'd have to look back at the source and see if it's the author's tag.

Even though it was 'only' a bucket of mackerel, an armed penguin is a dangerous penguin.

Its this arrogance of cyclists that make them feel that no laws of the road apply to them.... They seem to think that laws are made for the sole purpose that they can flout them...

This cafe on Newbridge Road, St Annes, received a zero-star rating in September 2015.

At the time, manager Lisa Turner said: "I have just taken over and I know the rating was terrible. I'm awaiting a new business inspection to happen in the coming weeks."

It came under new management in January last year, releasing a statement: "We are currently working very hard to bring the building and the interior up to a five-star standard."

The business has since permanently closed and a new one is yet to open on the site.
Shame, as not only does it leave Kim Kakeless, it was near Argos.
