    Visit to York

    For those of us that like caravanning/motor homing. I can recommend Rowntree Park (caravan Club Site) a mere 5-10 minute walk to the minster. and adjacent to the river.

    Keeping Warm in the work shop

    The cold weather is upon us, I am really feeling the cold this year. In the past I have used electric heating to try and keep a modicum of warmth in the shop.

    It is a good show but was very busy, I can only get round on a wheel chair so it was difficult to see so0me of the stalls.

    Good morning one and all, I have spent the majority of the last two days battling with this darned stuck chuck, still no success.
