  3. Ive tried cold Turkey and i just couldnt hack it.Its a mind thing at first,but forty+ a day was quite a habit. Welldone Bazza. Intresting you mention sleeping.I was waking for a smoke.Now im sleeping better than ive ever done.Dont they smell SWEET when ya catch a whiff,,,,,,, I have so much more TIME now also.Which the Patch i think helps very much to ease the ,,,Ile have a cig.Ya still want one,but when ya pause a mo and think about it,Ya dont Need one,its just the spare time then that needs dealing with.The patch obviously kills the crave and head niggle. 40 cigs x 10mins per cig =man,6hrs a day smoking.... .This doesnt take into the buying of them,filling zippos,find and loosing them,cleaning up after them,ashtrays,and all the parafinalia. BRIAN...
  4. DAZZ & BAZZA, Whats the Bobby Moore,are ya on track BRIAN...

  6. Assembling an Orchestra that can play well,arrive on que,and know the music to dance to is the challenge. Pre 100 Grid assembley is also a challenge with that number.Without any misshaps.Then landing. Once the music starts and you can hear it.Jobs a goodn. BRIAN...
  7. Well Felix,I did gest about David being the rear of the Panto, four legged, Farm Animal,but, i have no evidence of this.I dont beleive he has a sister involved,so rules one part out that would be do able. Daves Talents im sure will adapt to any part. It will be a shame not to have him at Washington.Its a great comfort knowing,,,,,,,, HEs Behind You BRIAN...
  8. All is well Jynx,im on a two weekly check for the Chemist.Which means im due this Monday.I think they will reduce the patch from 21mg down to 15mg. Just a word of WARNING for anyone that uses a patch. I forgot to put one on after a bath[i have one every 3mths weather i need one or not].I realised when i started to feel flushed.This was a few hours afternot wearing a patch.I repeated the NO PATCH exercise a few days later and found i was again feeling woooooosey.So it wasnt the shock of bathing . Withdrawl symptoms i beleive,so be carefull.Dont fall off the track because ya forgot the patch.Seems reducing the Nicoteen patch levels is also gona be a challenge. Kevs cut down also.We flew Sunday and he must have halved his intake.Ile snag him yet BRIAN...
  9. I luv ya and miss ya already my freind The very best of luck with the Panto Dave. BRIAN...
  10. The Sun could have his hat on over the weekend.The BEEBs forcast this morning,i would take for sure. Cold with sunny stuff and a nice wind.....basically.

  13. Bob covers it so ,so well.In a way,Like only Bob could One thought i had after the Record Breaking Atempt was.A while after. How many pilots ther wher taking pictures or watching.That could have been in ther or may wana be in the mix next time.Once the nerves are settled,its not over difficult at all. I also remember cursing Stephen H.Dave B looking smugly at me.The reason was.As we formed circles.I ended up at 4,Oclock.What i mean is.Burst from centre down to 4,Oclock.Which is easy peasy,Reversing back near gave me a hart attack,but hey.Thats as hard as it gets realy.Dave B had 3,Oclock.Hence the smug look and his nik name.Lucky Dave B.I was lucky enough to have a great confident pilot like Mark Lomas at one side for guidence and support.Dont know who else was next to me.I was mentally challenged beyond my multi tasking comfort zone to notice. Lets get Felix a perminent BDG and do this 101 kites thing my freinds.Will be Hell of a Buzzzz to be in ther .Shoulder to shoulder with ya mates and Nail The Mother. One last thing.Over at Ainsdale.I watch Chris from the North East.With NO previous Rev flying experience when he arrived for the day.Just enthusiasm and wana learn attitude.Fly in a Grid of Twenty by late dinner.After a morning of Sink or Swim teaching.Certainly my Star for the Ainsdale weekend.Especially when i think back to when i picked a Rev up for the first time and thought,,,,I think ive made a mistake here.Welldone to Chris,c u on Saturday i hope mate. BRIAN... edited for some error,but thers more,wouldnt be me would it
  14. Putting two balls at the top of the stake.Will allow your leaders to wrap between the balls them and hold the handles off the surface.The lower ball,stops the leaders sliding down and the handles following them BRIAN...
  15. I beleive i hold the worlds record for making kites stakes,for none commercial use or personal gain.....Ho Yeh,its true. I turned two full sets of snooker balls into all nice and shiney 14 inch stainless steel stakes.They weighed a bit though,plus a few spare balls they had for Billiards got drilled also .I bought the balls from a Social/labour club that was closing down some years ago in Keighly,Yorkshire.I sprayed most of them Day Glow Pink,Green and Orange.Used them to mark our lines and kites when ther at rest. Total =62 stakes made I also made Fifty stakes to give as momentoes at our recent gathering at Ainsdale.Along with sleeves to put the stake in and hang from your belt.Some which i had embroidered with slogans[kite God at work][The Gathering 2010][pie quad]that sorta stuff.I used Hard Foam balls for the tops.Ther lite weight and in all diffrent patterns and coulors.They looked kewl.I also bought every knitting needle within a 200mile radius of Wigan.From Charity Shops and similar good causes,to make the stake or sharp ends.Aluminium ones are best,but any were used.Some great,some not so great Total =50 stakes made I made 6 team stakes with flashing eyeballs as presents for my pals. Total =6 stakes made I made about 10 novelty ones.A pie on a stick,chicken on a stick,burger on a stick and a Tazmanian Devil on a stick.Which is now our mascot Total = 10 stakes made I also have a few golfball ones,tent pegs ive messed with and a Revolutionary one.Which has two lengths of steel[12mm dia]12 inch long that i made and gave to my pals.They work great in sand or soft ground.When its been wet Total = 18 stakes made GRAND TOTAL =146 stakes made,give or take a few Anyone stake making crazier than that.I hope ther is.

    Two Choices

    Hi Pal, The damsel sends a Valentine every year.Her mum still wants to adopt him she tells me.As for the others in class that taunted and laughed at the girl.I beleive it was one of the best lessons they had.In defence of them.Ther Children and kids will be kids,in innocence.My lad did get some taunts about it,we talked it over.Partly because he started Country Dancing in break time at school.The Damsel,by chance.Ended up Dosey Doeing with my lad.So,i had the full Dad and lad chat.........Do boys dance dad,are we gay if we do,is she my girlfreind.......Whers that Handbook for kids. The Fight, Well,thats far from finished with.Once the whole story comes out from both sides and all partys.Turn out thers around thirty kids involved one way or another.The School are quite happy to just punish Henry and leave the matter.After a long,frank conversation with a head Teacher Yesterday evening.The matter isnt done with. Ironically though,Henry returned to help a freind who awas being threatened and roughed up by two lads.Lost his rag[temper]and quickly dispatched the pair of um.The story ive had from a few others along with Henry.Sugests they were asking for it and Henry obliged.Doesnt make his actions right though. Im dissapointed he didnt Walk Away,So is Henry. I think they called it GROWING UP,when i was at School.Standing up for yourself perhaps.Being a freind. In Todays PC,Red Tape,Bull S... society........You wouldnt Beleive what and who become involved,its quite unreal,.God forbid if blood had been spilt. Whats realy weird,is the fact that Henry got the Better of the Two others.Hes gets punished and they walk......im not having that im afraid.It takes two to Dosey Doe[or three] Growing Pains BRIAN...
  22. Would ther be a chance of a picture Hal. Its strange how products from other sport.Somtimes can be the same as a product from another,but be called s diffrent name or used for a diffrent use.A piture would be helpfull. Thanks BRIAN...
