  1. Enjoying leaning the basics. Have it by my side for the ad breaks when watching TV and shove it in my pocket while walking the poor, long suffering dogs). I can play single notes and bend but not reliably. Got a bit to go before I can justify looking to expand to a collection.
  2. Holy thread resurrection Batman. Just unearthed a Special 20 (C) I bought a long time ago and plan to fulfil a long held desire to get a tune out of it. Where to start?
  3. I can play recorder and tin whistle I try to play Bass and Uke I'd love to be able to play harmonica.
  4. JL is right different, species of the same genus some are endangered others are not. Can't see that the wood in an electric makes a blind bit of difference you'd be as well with a lump of ply with a pretty wrap on it but spend the cash on electrics. Acoustic on the other hand are a whole different game, and the tone wood can make a huge difference. to my ear Acacia is the mutt's.
  5. Wind has been blowing the birds backwards all day and there's a thunderstorm almost overhead just now, the bigger birds are giving up trying to get near so landing on the drive and walking up. I'll have to pick up and refill the feed holders before putting them back on the posts later.
  6. Just raked up the dead moss on the remaining patches in the lawn and did some wind assisted reseeded of the areas might have a decent lawn by next year. Cat is sitting in front of the fire hinting he wants it lit, it's already been cleaned out, laid and more logs brought in.
  7. Ooh yeah, love the whole steam punk thing. I went into homebase to pick up some ply, some corotherm and jigsaw blades. I now have a weatherproof converted coop and some useless bits of corotherm, the wood off cuts are now ash. Am wondering WTF I can get on with tomorrow as I'm out of raw materials, van isn't big enough for 8x4 sheets of ply/corotherm or anything else I need for my next couple of projects and the weather is going to be shite AGAIN. I may have to start deconstructing things I don't want to get some material to start making things I do.
  8. Son dropped a Honda petrol genny off when he moved, he used it for welding. It's bloody loud though. Keeping it for emergencies. One day I'll get mains into the sheds or a couple of outside sockets on the house and run a cable when I need it, lighting leaves a lot to be desired even on sunny days. If things go the way I hope I'll be able to build the shed I want next year which is why I'm reluctant to get it wired up now.
  9. Among all the usual stuff I got myself a jig saw as I build up my tools and start making my workshop usable. I've no power so everything has to be run on rechargeables. First project will be building a large heavy duty workbench, then tidying up an old field type hen coop as a storage shed, replacing the windows blocking up the pop-holes and putting in some shelving so I can clear some of the stuff out of the workshop to make room for making stuff. Winter projects will be bird boxes.
  10. Squirrels would have to fight Woodie junior for the peanuts. Wouldn't fancy their chances he's a bit of a headbanger.
  11. Putting the bird feeders back up and preparing for the sky engineer to come and connect us to something worth watching. At least we'll be ready in time for the Pro14, 6 Nations and Heineken cup. Go Weegies and Embuggers
  12. Just doing my garden birds obs for BTO, any decent pics go on the wildlife thread. The weather in DG2 is pretty miserable sp apart from a little more sorting out in the workshop an walking the mutts, I'm staying indoors and thinking of putting the fire on. Forecast is for it to get to get pretty wild later and it's certainly shaping up that way.
  13. Moving house, still a lot of stuff I haven't sorted out yet and yes, the rest of the case is long gone.
  14. Just found half a case of Reisling 🥰
  15. We tend to wards sweet, I'm OK for reds but the rose and whites are getting low. Cleaned the chimenea out and done some maintenance ready to light again later. Other than that I'm hiding out of the sun which is pretty fierce just now
