About Me

70 now and our five wonderful years aboard our narrowboat Skyy seem along time ago. Jacquie, allowed me to build my replica three wheeler kit car, which was a great success. Now it's time to start on a bigger project and that is to make a good Triumph Stag even better, here goes.

Jacquie returned late Friday evening having visited her Dad, who is a Chelsea Pensioner, and we spent Saturday morning discovering Worcester Cathedral and the city. We climbed the Cathedral tower and were fascinated by the bell ringers practicing on soundless dummy bells, but they were all wired up to computers and able to monitor their all important timing. The view from the top of the tower made the claustrophobic final climb well worth it.. One chap actually proposed to his lady on top of the tower, happily she accepted.

Imagine our surprise whilst wandering through the lovely old streets, to find that Mac & Jac have already opened a Deli. One might think that Jac has already had enough of being a water gypsy and has started an alternative career, but, no, jiust coincidence.

After lunch we moved up to Lowesmoor Basin, just on the northern edge of Worcester City centre, where Viking Boats gave up a helpful and friendly welcome, we fueled and watered and stayed overnight. The local Aldi supermarket was an interesting experience, their grapes were surprisingly tasty.

I just thought that I should mention that we had a problem getting the computer to recognise the T -Mobile Web & Walk modem, Keith from Quidditch said that he has burnt out two connecting cables, and we had previously smelt hot plastic, but couldn't identify where the smell could be coming from. Ashley had been watching TV via the internet and it seems possible that with high transfer rates the cable could overheat. I tried the same cable with the camera and sure enough the computer didn't recognise it. A new cable resolved the problem.
