    Night vision

    I've just started using a Pard NV007 which I can switch easily between my AA S410 and my CZ452. I've had quite a few bunnies with it already and it works great. One thing I wasn't prepared for is that, because of the brightness of the screen, the pupil in my left eye closes down so when I take my eye away from the scope then it's takes a few seconds for the eye to open up again and be able to see clearly again. Being partially sighted in my right eye means I'm virtually blind til my left eye re-adjusts😵 Be careful of sellers on auction sites because I have heard of people receiving empty cases.
  2. I don't see how it can be funnier or more ridiculous than the reality at the moment🤡

    Shome rebellion

  4. Well, I'll just carry on til I have to wear glasses😎

    Back to childhood.

    We made Swannee Whistles out of Horse Chestnut twigs. We'd tie a spoon to the end of a garden cane to reach over ponds into Moorhen nests and scoop out the eggs. A tin can filled with pond water over a fire, we were allowed to play with matches, was how we boiled the eggs then ate them. Nobody drowned and id dibint do me enny aahhmmm🙄

    BREXIT

    I think we've lost the last semblance of democracy when a 'supreme' court can rule over our parliament citing only assumptions and declaring something 'unlawful' and at the same time fail to quote which laws have been broken, all funded by private individuals with the stated intent of overturning the legitimate will of the majority. Don't think I'll ever bother voting again😕

    Board games

    Backgammon. Simpler than you think to get to grips with the basic game. My wife and I play it regularly, we've even played it at the side of the road whilst awaiting the breakdown truck. The beauty of it is that there's lots of strategies you can use but it also includes the unpredictability of thrown dice which levels the playing field.
  8. Brilliant, THAT is what music is all about. It's the thing I love about Ukulele, I play in a band but there's now Uke clubs all over the uk so I usually take one with me and can just sit in with any club wherever we go. Thanks for posting.

    BREXIT

    So, taking our parliament as a precedent, if I get fined for something and I don't like it then can I simply get the law changed so I don't get fined?
  10. I think it is the black one, second from left, it's got a big arrow sticking out of its back.

    BREXIT

    I find it absolutely ludicrous the there's so much gnashing of teeth and beating of gums, not mention toddler-like tantrums, from the remoaners about BoJo trampling over democracy when their sole aim is to keep us welded to an unelected, undemocratic commission over whom we have no power whatsoever🤔 And they are also working against the democratic decision of the referendum.
  12. On the A14 upgrade the other night, two into one lane signed for 800yds. Two cars refused to let me filter right. eventually pushed my way in behind them. Then all the other traffic, including hgv's carried on undertaking right up to the closure bringing the whole lot to a standstill. The only thing that got it moving again was another couple of cars including me straddling the lanes to stop undertaking. As soon as I got moving in the single lane I could see the traffic backing up again in my rearview mirror as idiots in the left lane tried to push right to the front. If everyone had started filtering as soon as it was signed then nobody needed to stop. I'd left plenty of room for others to do so in front of me but, no, they had to carry on til they caused a jam. What happened to consideration for other road users?
  13. They should have cleaned the cinema that I saw it in. I got quite a bit of dust in my eye by the end.
  14. So far, in the past ten days I've flattened 2 Rabbits, 2 Pigeons and 1 Squirrel. I drive early morning and late evening. In the morning the rural roads are smothered with Pigeons picking up grit and they've got used to cars so don't move off the road. If I braked or swerved for every one then I'd never get anywhere. Now the harvest is on then Rabbits have less cover and run all over the roads. Even if I slow down then It's sod's law that they'll run towards the edge then double back straight under the wheels. The Squirrel ran onto the road when I had no chance of avoiding it. There was more Squirrels than I've seen for ages this morning. I don't run over wildlife deliberately but I wouldn't risk an accident trying to avoid it.

    Shingles!!!

    Had my first bout on the right side of my head when I was 18. Felt like a mechanical grab trying to tear the back of my head off. That was long time ago and I ended up begging the nurse to give me something to knock me out. In those days I was given DF118 which I could only take for 3 days then had to have 3 days off it. Over the past ten years I've had three more bouts of it round the left side of my head. Aciclovir definitely reduced the rash. Bad news is that the neuralgia from it can twinge now and then for up to ten years after the attack. Not a nice affliction.
