Stuff n Nonsense

1. Coming into work today I saw a red Admiral sunning itself on the cobbles in the courtyard Admiralty House.

2. I need to find a specialist cleaner for my down sleeping bag.

3. Kim Catrell Samantha Jones from Sex and the City was a Vulcan in Star Trek the Undiscovered Country ! She was a rubbish Vulcan as she had this wry grin every time she delivered a line and what was going on with the shaved sideburns?! Very Strange!

4. Universal Pictures and Republic Serials like Rocketman, Flash Gordon and Buck Rogers should be easier to get hold of!

5. I need to get tickets for Hampton Court for next Thursday/Friday.

6. I need to sort out the Fencing Summer BBQ damn quickly along with a sqillion other fencing related issues.

7. I have decided not to travel to Loughborough at the weekend to take part in the Annual Civil Service Fencing Competition. I missed seeing England win the Rugby World Cup for one of their comps in 2002 I am not going to miss England going out of the 2006 World Cup.

8. Find a very good reason to justify not buying a Mk VII British WWII Respirator Haversack and Webley Service Revolver. I'm planning to go with the "I have enough props, cr@p and vintage outdoors gear to be going on with" line. I can buy some new guttering instead !


WWII Mk VII Respirator Haversack unissued circa 1942


.....I could always use it on the trail in Nepal and in Kathmandu on return. I was always fiddling around with and having to take my rucksack on and off when really a satchel type thing would have been everso, everso useful.

It would go so well with the Mallory style goggles, and the 1940's Gebirgsjäger/Swiss Army rucsack !
