Closing down main generator.


Well, this is the last post from the study which has seen so many years of them produced.

We are about as ready as an ostrich is to join a swallow migration.  Chaos reigns, and if it rains as well, that will really put the seal on it.  Or a grampus?

Setting out in Fanfare

This picture emerged while packing – a reminder of setting out for a race in our first Flying Fifteen.

And I must subject you to a farewell Really Awful Rhyme from ‘White Horses’, as our no-longer-home has been known:

I don’t eat choc-o-late, I must insist –
What section of that statement have you missed?
Though seemingly a puzzle, it
Just serves to say I guzzle it,
With nifty twisty actions of the wrist.

    You’re awfully quiet, with ne’er a peep,
    Not a single missive, or even a Tweet.
    Hope all’s well, and the move went fine,
    Write up a post when you have the time?

    It’s tough, I’m sure and no amount of platitudes can sort that out.
    But you’re doing it because needs must, so therefore it must be the best decision.
    It’ll all come right in the wash, as they say in Northern Ingurland.
    All the best, Col.

    You must be kinda floored Col – or maybe I’m the only one that thinks so.
