Busy weekend

Tuesday, July 29, 2014

Well it was busy weekend for my club who needed a new roof on its out of town HQ. This took both Saturday and Sunday to put up and left the felt to be put on this weekend.

I took my camera along and one of our members use a video camera running 1 frame a second. When edited it took the 20 or so hours of work into 18 minutes. I wish that I could put it up for all to see but you will have to settle for my stills.

Laying out

More timber is needed

Getting the roof ready

Cutting the sheets

You will have to wait until next week (if it doesn't rain) for the finished pictures

Bloors Wharf

Sunday, July 20, 2014

Yesterday I had my first real rest from exercising for a long while, this gave me a chance to go out with my camera. This is something that I have not done for a long while.

Sure I have taken pictures at the car shows I go to but that is not what I am interested in as I like to take pictures of wildlife.

I set off to my favorite place where the riverbank juts out into the river, this give you a good all round view of the river. Here are some of the picture I took. I have not looked up the wildflowers but you will know most of them.

This one is the best I think.

There were a lot more birds but there were too far out for the camera but I enjoyed using my telescope watching them.

More to come later in the week, please enjoy.

I have not only a monsoon raining down on me but the granddad of all storms.

I tried to get some pictures tonight of the lightening but not good as they were behind the houses. I have got the afterglow.

Time was 2130 BST

Not that good as this is my first time.

    I like the bluish picture. It's hard to capture lightening. Hope the storm doesn't last long!

Keeping an eye on things

Tuesday, July 15, 2014

An unusual blog for me but one that I thought I would pass on . I have glaucoma which I had an op for in 1992. I have been on the same eye drops since then. In that time I have had on bottle a mouth and not thought anything of it.

18 month ago I was advised to take it in both eyes as there was field of view problem in the other eye the one that had the op. This I duly did up until two weeks ago, no problem.

Then three Sundays ago I started to feel "light headed" after I sat down and got up, I was ok all the time I was moving around. This went on and I decided to take my BP. I then go ta shock it was 105 over 42.

It took me another day to figure out what was happening. The eye drops are a Beater Blockers and this all started when I opened an new bottle. I took another look at the bottle and it was different to the ones that I had been having.

The bottle has a seal which is broken by screwing the top closed, this punches a hole in the top. This bottle was missing the seal. The top was not stopped from punching a bigger hole in the top, so the medication was running out like a tap.

I have been to the chemist and found out that it was fault manufactured bottle. The new one is ok and all is back to normal.

Something to look out for and not be taken for granted, but we all do it.
