It's all a sham, you know. They dial the voltage right down, so there's no real danger of getting a shock even if it does strike.

00346 Rake patterns for the Gallery

Gen at the Gallery has asked me to look into a collaborative rake pattern event with a view to running team building workshops. Sounds good to me.

So I'm thinking up ideas for us to try out when meet up for the trail. Now, I don't really like the idea of circles, but they're as good a place as any to start:

Meriel had this really cool idea about having a game of snake. If it works out, I'll post up the results.

We'll be able to cover alot of the beach, considering five rakes are better than one and ten are better than five.

If you are serious about the selling-you-family thing you should head straight for

I already did mine and I'm writing this entry from the hills.

Anybody want to buy a hill?

Thanks, whoever you are.

00338 Wreck fishing

So I went with Simon and a couple of the guys from his work (sadly no Andy) and we headed off with Richard Seager in his awesome boat for a day's wreck fishing.

To my mind the fish we were catching were MONSTERS. Pollock all day long (I got 7) and all between 8 and 12lb. I took 6 home to eat (not all in one go) and as a result I could barely carry them home. I mean, just look at them:

Here's Richard, his boat rocks, but doesn't beach:


It's bordering on whale hunting for someone of my weakened constitution.

00337 Feb catchup

Most importantly this month - the emergence of another question to add to the hitherto unpublished list:
What covers most of the sea bed?
Here's the only other two I can remember:
What's the difference between a Prime Minister and a President? Why do some countries have one, the other or both or none?
Is honey better for you than sugar?

Maybe I get the answers, maybe I don't.

In other news, Skiing (or rather snowboarding) accompanied by obligatory drinking:

My stick The Fridge

And how much more forgettable could fishing be?
Seven Pollock totaling around 60-70lb? I can't even remember all their names, but they fill my belly just the same.


Fishing Gulls

Still to come in march - paint roller man and a guy made from bits Cara gave me.
