Hi Both,

Have a good time tomorrow. Lets hope the nice weather holds out.

I can't make it, I'll be karting at PFI near Grantham. At least i'm not a million miles away from the action & might even spot you guys on my way home.

I hope you all had a good time Rick....... I'm thinking of vinyling parts of the Jimny (similar to my 205), so I can green lane without scuffing the paintwork. Gonna photoshop a bit first to see how it'll look best.

My weekend included spending hundreds of pounds on a new hoover, and sofa

Maybe I should become one of those make the husband pay for everything wives

Just wanted a new sofa. Wink

The hoover actually melted inside when Reg hoovered up on Friday morning!

Not sure what he was doing with it, I'd already gone to work

Boom boom! Sorry I was at work and completely missed that joke - Must pay more attention!

The hoover was a bagless cheapo Aldi special, I've replaced it with a Dyson DC19* which is brilliant on our floors (hard).

The sofa was a good one (made by James' Dad), but it's 10yrs old and we fancied a change.....


Hard to earn, easy to spend

* I didn't want a Dyson, but it was the only hoover in stock at Coalville's Argos that ticked all of the boxes

That's the exact reason that I didn't want a Dyson, but it was either one of those, or a dirty floor......

Dustpan and brush from Poundland, you save money and get some exercise


Came across this aricle.



A builder working at Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital has reportedly been sacked, after he was caught pleasuring himself with a vacuum cleaner in the canteen.



The man was allegedly discovered naked, on his hands and knees, with his rude bits in the business end of a smiling Henry vacuum cleaner.



The Sun reports that the Polish man claimed to bosses that he had merely been vacuuming in his underwear, which was supposedly a common practice in Poland. Hmmm.

Your a clever chap could you not hook up Elaine's rowing machine to the vacuum cleaner via an alternator so when she's rowing she can hoover at the same time

From the Guardian- My wife and I spend at least 30-40 minutes each on our rowing machine every day. Is there a way to convert this energy into electricity?

It sounds like you're putting many of us to shame with your exercise regime, but I don't think it's worth connecting you both up to the National Grid quite yet. You could certainly generate some electricity from your rowing machine, but whether it would be worth the hassle and expense of rigging up a contraption that, in reality, would struggle to produce enough energy to power even a low-watt lightbulb is another question.

A study of the US rowing team that competed in the 1992 Olympics found that the male rowers produced, on average, 467W of power over the 2,000m course, whereas the average female rower produced 310W. Just think how exhausted rowers look at the end of such a race, and consider that all they would each be able to power is a handful of lightbulbs for the few minutes that the race lasted. What's more, the backward-forwards motion of rowing is not a terribly efficient way of producing power, as you would most likely need a ratchet and flywheel to convert this motion into a spinning action so that it could then be connected to a dynamo. The losses from this transmission would be considerable.

For this reason, if you're still keen to generate electricity out of your exertions, you might be better off using your bicycle instead. A firm in the US has designed just such a contraption called the Pedal-A-Watt. You stand your bike on it and as you pedal, it creates 75-200W at 12-25V. However, it costs $520, including international shipping. To my mind, that's a very expensive way to recharge your mobile phone or iPod.

And we haven't yet considered how many calories you would first need to consume to sustain such levels of exercise. If you think that you burn about 100 calories every 10 minutes of vigorous rowing, then you had better find yourself a wholesale supplier of energy bars.

On second thoughts sell the rowing machine and get her a bike

Yeah,

It dims the streetlights when either of us gets the welders going!

Mind you, welders are great for a round-year tan!
