The picture on the left shows the linings of our solid fuel stove. Those in U.S. this is just a wood stove that can also be fueled with coal. The one on the extreme left is the rear liner and to the right one of the 2 side liners. In the foreground is the old rear liner that disintegrated on removal. The lining is made not of brick but Vermiculite fire board that is good to1100C (2010F). The board can be cut with an ordinary wood saw. The old liners have been in use for 6 winters and during this period have been reversed and the rear one has been repaired(crack) using fire cement. I called in at Midland Chandlers at Penkridge and they quoted a price of £63 ($95) I politely refused relying on some information deep in my head that needed to be brought to the surface. So having remembered the alternative product I found a stove dealer in Nantwich who cut the 3 pieces to size for £24($36). So similar to the filter blog, it does pay to step away and think.
This made me smile. In the field were about 20 Swans (around 11 pictured) and they were all still displaying a few dark juvenile feathers. My thoughts as we drifted by slowly were it was perhaps a gathering point for last years cygnets to seek a mate for a lifetime together. A sort of speed dating for Swans. Perhaps the females google find.me.a.cob.com or the males might try pen.for.me.co.uk
I was trying to think of a name for this club,field,meeting place but the only trendy club like name i came up with was `Cygnatures` Any suggestions? Oh by the way do you think the two Geese might be the club bouncers.
Here you are America. This is what your Jaq gets up to on a sunny day. Book in hand and yes she is wearing her slippers. No you can`t have her back even though you all miss her. We hope to be back for a short break in November.
Well not much of a cruising day today. We set off but after stopping for lunch the rains came down so we ended up watching a film on TV and called the cruising off after 2hours.
