Fortunately I have had the wisdom not to leave any of my tools at my Workshop at the end of each day. I always brought them home and unloaded them every night and loaded up in the morning. Sometimes it could take half an hour to load up. It was a pain at times but at least all I lost in the fire was an old Hitachi chop saw and my large 3 phase Compressor.

Only one of my new Hi-Jet Alloys had a bit of smoke damaged. A set of second hand SE Alloys I have 3 of the set were scorched, but they were going to be bead blasted and re-painted, so not a tragedy. I am finding more and more bits as I sift through my smoke damaged store, and was very pleased to find 2 sets of Strangled Octopupii one set has a complete set of hoses, so that is a real bonus.

Some pictures taken today of my overflowing garage at home. Thankfully my next door neighbour has a large L shaped shed which she has made over to me for storage of wood for our Woodburner as I lost all of my 2 winters worth of firewood in the blaze.

Only 3 at a time. What a pain. That is what I love about WhatsApp. You can send 10 pictures at a time.

It was pretty warm in there, look how the I beams have bent like spaghetti. Car ramp has warped to buggery too.

Its pretty bad times, but at the same time a forced retirement - blessing in disguise.

I had never seen anything like it before. It certainly got pretty hot in there. The flat roof was Canadian Redwood and the planks were 6" wide by almost 2" thick. It had four layers of Fibreglass reinforced felt that in 1988 cost me £2,100 to get felted. The flat roof was 90ft long x 38ft wide at the widest point so one hell of a lot of wood in that alone.

Well when I say I have got "an old shed" , normally I would be talking about a tatty Hi-Jet Van, but in this case it is the use of my next door neighbour's garden shed which will save the day for storage of crucial Hi-Jet spares.

That's what happens when someone posts at the same time as you. You couldn't plan it could you? Yes Logi I am double posting. It clashed with your incoming post.

Not using my Sony VAYO Laptop any more. It was such a pain to upload pictures as we older Forum members will remember and have a good laugh about.
I decided to have a go yesterday with my Sony Z4 Tablet and was surprised how much more straightforward it is - - apart from all the damn advertising keep locking the screen up.

Is there any way you can get rid of or stop these dreadful adverts?
