The Big One (26-6)

Tuesday the 10th of October 2012


The weather continues to be kind to us. A cool misty start but the sun soon burned off the cover. Now the sunshine is pushing quite a bit via the solar panels into the leisure battery bank. 

The new alternator, we hope will arrive today. It's supposed to have been sent via Parcel Farce for a morning delivery I'm still waiting in the early afternoon. It did arrive but much too late for me to fit. Grrrr. 

A wreath floated past the boat this morning. Always a sad reminder of some event to see bunches of flowers tied to poles and trees on the towpath. This is the first time we have seen a wreath placed on the water.

The Humber Princess passed us again this morning with a cargo of oil bound for Rotherham.

Wildlife: The Kingfisher went past again this morning, a short time later it was back in the opposite direction accompanied by another one. 

This Weeks Solar Panel Data.
Average 29.1 Ah per day  High 43Ah Low 16Ah

I have created a poll that will run between now and the 1st of January 2013. It's not very scientific. Its a simple question "Will CART Succeed". You have three choices Yes, Unsure and No. Now you can vote for one of the three choices. If you change your mind before the poll closing date. You can come back and change your vote. (I wish we could do that for politicians) You will find the poll option on the right hand side just below the members pictures.
