  1. Hello pipistrelle, I am still 'rooted' on the lovely River Nene, and would be free to help you with our infamous Northampton Arm, depending on your schedule as I am free during the day up until 6pm when I have to go to work. My fee will be lots of cups of tea and plenty of yummy cake. You can contact me at : treepoet @Hotmail.co.uk brightest blessings

  3. That is a nice jaunt, and if you do moor in the basin or just a lickle bit further along, then its only a lickle say 10 minute walk to the centre of MH. Plus lots of interesting shops and places to grab a snack and the main supermarkets, Sainsburys, Llidl, Aldi, ectera are around the centre of town Whoops! Nearly forgot doh! Moi Spoons do woverly brekkies ( just stuffed my face with one
  4. Firstly condolences to the family and friends of the person who lost their life, I don't think that anyone goes out boating with the intention of losing their life. Sadly alcohol can confuddle people's perceptions, and at the end of the day tho is a tragic incident for all concerned. Over 20 years ago we would never go out for a jaunt on our boats, without a lifering, and now as a solo boater I have a gadget thingy that I can throw to people, as well as an automatic lifejacket similar to the ones that the bwb folk wear,to keep me safe if I ever I fell in (which I have many times over the years. I would have thought that having a lifering is an essential part of a boaters equipment, as mine only cost me just over £50, well worth I for piece of mind. I don't drink alcohol, but I have done many daft things over the years, which could have ended in tragedy, I did not think at the time how dangerous they were. Yes! We can all debate about the effectiveness/ cost/implications of having liferings along the network, but please lets not forget that a life has been lost, and a family are heartbroken.
  5. We both actually work in Market Harborough, but her boat is in a different place, and Market Harborough is the nearest town.
  6. Many many thanks ... I now have all these contact details and have sent them to my friend, so that she can contact them tomorrow. I have got him down on my list Graham but many thanks. Tony Redshaw, Justin Green Debdale Wharf Sam at Foxton Boat Services so my task is hopefully completed

Hmmm... the thing is folks, she seems to have been ' Let Down' by a few people, and when I bumped into her today she was at the end of her tether, so I told her not to worry, and I would ask the good folk on her for advice

Phew!!! thank goodlyness for this post, as after having my similar pump all connected up last week, and after turning on the taps.. to be greeted by the sound of a hundred, mice dancing the Wheel tappers & Shunters clog dance in steel bottomed boots in my cupboard..... moi nearly did an Osain Bolt onto the rear welldeck ok!!! maybe only 50 mice ...but if was flipping loud now it can be fixed to ensure harmony rules
  13. love that pic sabcat tankies emerald
  14. Hmm..what was that olde saying?? Let moi ponder.... By Jove Jeeves tis this ..ahem !! "never judge a book by its cover" Moi twopenneth would be ..as you could be pleasantly surprised if you did this Each and everyone of us is an individual, to do what they may, as long as it harms no-one I adore my back tattoo, even though moi can only see it when looking in a mirror. It is spiritually significant to me, as are all of the others. Unless moi is at the swimming baths in a cossie, you would not know that moi had any body art, because they are for my pleasure alone. Tis quite amusing though when with a group of people discussing this very topic, and moi informs them that moi has oddles of em and they seem quite ..nay very surprised. People eh!!
  15. moi has body art on both feet, both wrists, a large Fire Sun one on my tummy, acorns and oak leaves on both upper shoulders...but my pride and joy is an oak tree sprite that completely covers my back from neck to base of spine..took 5 hours but so worth it. I don't know how to pst them on here ( sighs of relief from some haha but they are on my faceache page At the end of the day, its all about ones own personal Choice
