Ordered some plugs and feathers from Amazon for a quiet job - and once again got sucked into the infernal "Prime" membership, despite my best efforts to avoid it.

 :wall:

Now I'll have all the mather of cancelling in yet again.  >:(

Thats exaclytly why I dont use Amazon now its a pain , there should be a opt out or opt in button
I dont know where I am going, but will know where I am when I get there.

Did you see that report of how Amazon chucked away vast amounts of perfectly good stuff last year; given that, do you need another reason not to use them?

Not round here there aint.
That was the downside of the smartening-up of Settle Coal. No longer can you go into that "black hole" known as the stores to retrieve a vital part that was last manufactured in 1903.

I beg to differ - many of the items in the former "Aladdin's Cave" are still there but you have to ask. But I shouldn't have said that as it might get ransacked by others!  ;)

What caving thing today?
Booked myself onto Gaping Gill Dihedral end Aug (unless we have a rare super drought in which case maybe Direct). Been meaning to try caving for a while.

Shhhhh... Got to type this post really quietly so the people in the mine explorers area don't hear, or they might blackball me ;)

That's what you say publicly, but once word is out, I'm fully expecting to find the Pandora horse's skull in my bed

Dragged Mrs Ruminator out to the sites in the pouring rain. Mrs R. highly unimpressed and in a bad mood so quickly went home again.

Threw loads of Seamgrip (runny Aquasure) on my brand new AV Oversuit, and used the Seamgrip to glue a bit of tubular tape over the bottom section of the shoulder strap on my brand new Petzl Portage bag.

Because the best repair is the one you make _before_ it gets broken...
