    Amazing, I never realised what interesting job you deckies had, hauling buckets of seawater onboard every four hours, and sticking a thermometer into said liquid.
    There was us stuck in the engine room, doing our best to keep the seawater in check, and you lot up above were hauling it in by the bucket load, all supposedly in the interest of science.

    #30 The latex dolls were a misprint what I should have said was buckets , this is what happens when one gets older, our minds wander to all the lost opportunity’s of youth. Yes the old weather report would have been so much easier if you could just send one in with the information like , It’s raining without having to put into code the relative humidity and all the fancy Language like Dew point , which sounds like a message regarding ones ETA which again sounds like that creature from a far flung galaxy. As regards sick men at sea, I used to prefer it when the Ch. Stwd took over the role of nurse and the keys to the medical cabinet, was averse to sticking needles into the right hand upper quadrant of the right buttock, wouldn’t have been so bad if it had been the left, would have been more politically even. Ah well enough about weather we have always discussed it and whether she will or whether she won’t, see we always digress to other subjects so this may not reach you. Cheers JWS...PS please note the word volunteers refers to someone else volunteering ones services , one never did volunteer for anything at sea unless it was to take someone else’s tot for him. JWS

    What is going on in UK.

    We had the London correspondent on radio this morning and what he told us was just as hilarious as it was frightening.


    The British public are to be encouraged to shower not bathe as by 2030 there will be a water shortage in UK despite all the rain fall.

    Air fresheners should only be used in rooms with the windows open as the propellant could cause medical problems to the user.
    Some years ago it was the Ozone layer they were worried about.


    Wood burning fires should be fazed out as they put carbon into the air.
    Guess we will, along with other countries, stop bush fires.


    Diesel, a few years ago the public were encouraged to take it up, now they want to ban it.

    But on a more positive side, both the UK and now the EU want to begin talks with Oz on a free trade agreement.

    Funny times we live in.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    Life is too short to blend in.
