Re: I bought this lightmeter when it first came out

'Clunk click every trip' I did like the feel of an SLR :wink: Does the stuff we learnt back then about exposure and composition still apply now? A) I've currently got three main cameras on the go (it's just like having several bikes :roll: ) and my largest Lumix mirrorless camera looks a bit like a...

Re: This wonderful, beautiful fluff ball came in through the bathroom window

Gorgeous (maybe not the right word) creatures. We used to have a maternity roost in our back porch and when my parents came to visit they used to sit in the conservatory, counting them out. The most we had was around 15. Sadly they don't use it now, but we still have them flying all around the house...

Re: I bought this new, yes when it first came out

Well, I lusted after one of those for years but never could afford one. I think they cost almost as much as the second-hand Zorki 4 I bought in the early 70's. I did see one on flea-bay last year but it was rather battered and I don't think I'll be needing one nowadays. Glad to see you're still usin...

Re: Cutting the grass

While I agree about differences of pain threshold, I honestly consider myself as having a high one. A while back I had a serious cycling accident and while in hospital having a dislocated collar bone seen to, the attendant was surprised I had managed to carry on leading my CTC club ride and suffered...

Re: Cutting the grass

Aren't all that painful?????

The ones I've had (and why are they always in three's!) are damn painful indeed.
The pain from my last lot t'other week lasted a good three days and were uncomfortable for a few more.
Maybe these Welsh ones are more venomous. :evil:

Re: Cutting the grass

We've probably had similar (if not less) rainfall here Mick. However, I've been cutting the grass every 10 days or so, if only to keep it green! Otherwise the various weeds/wildflowers give it a different colour; currently the Self-Heal gives a mid-blue/purple tinge to it. I have just removed some t...

Re: New bike technology

It'd be quite fun jogging through town with one of those following you and I bet the motorists would steer well clear. :lol:

Re: It's not about the bike stupid.

I really don't understand why this is in the touring section.
Could we create a "Pub shop" section for philosophical musings and general disagreements?

Re: Earworm

I've actually had that Thin Lizzy tune in my head for weeks now and it really is driving me mad. However....moving on an hour..... "it's four o'clock in the morning"! It's a line from a 10cc song, probably off either the Sheet Music or Original Soundtrack albums. Whereas I know all of the ...

Re: Favourite smells

Haven't a clue wot one of them would smell like, but I hate ALL scented candles and similar fresheners.
When will people realise fresh air doesn't have to have a smell. :)
