I have had a busy week. Last Tuesday I went to the bird place and on the way we passed Maplin. I wanted a pack or two of their AA batteries, the batteries are cheap but very good. I also wanted a pack of those thin wires with alligator clips on. I forgot the latter but did end up getting a weather centre. I was going to make one with the Arduino but they had one for £39.95p…..I could see me buying all the bits and then it failing so I succumbed to temptation.
I have spent an interesting couple of hours sorting it all out. It’s a grand bit of kit. It works. The pressure needs setting but that will be easy for me as I have to go back to Darlington for three wheel bearings. The truck had her service, a bit of exhaust and one bearing but I couldn’t find the other three….they are on order. I will park next to the airport and ask him in the control tower for the pressure. This is a wireless display. I’m impressed I got it going with only a few …..WELL I’LL BE BLOWED!s…I usually have to swear at such things for hours. P.Shop CS6 is now starting to behave. I’m going to love it.
Here it is doing what it is supposed to. I will have to remember to take it down when I move. The bit of black stick is part of an old bird feeder I found. I am impressed with it. They do a much posher one that will talk to the laptop but that is the thick end of £100.00p. I can buy a few notebooks and pencils for £60.00p.
I’m waiting for rain to see if the rain gauge works and the wind to die down then I’ll go back to Duncombe Park this week for more bird pictures. By next weekend I should be in Scotland for the summer.
Yesterday’s paper was wall to wall Lady Thatcher. I wish I hadn’t bought it……I couldn’t finish the crossword but did manage the Sudukos so it wasn’t a total waste of a couple of pounds.
I did get a sympathetic e-mail regarding the demise of Maggie the Witch.
EVERYONE JUST SHUT UP!………LET THE IRON LADY RUST IN PEACE.
Have a good week.
