Just catching up having emerged from Tax Return season, that photo of the Bentley at Bathurst with the kangaroo is fantastic.

I happened to catch the end of the historic support race on TV from a late restart where Terry Lawlor ran away from the field in a beautiful red and gold Shelby GT350, did anyone else see it?

Bathurst is definitely on my to do list

Seems a bit daft even thinking of putting an awning out in this weather

Current thinking is it's being used as a stalking horse. "OK we'll drop the Clay planning permission if you let us have the other one" (which is the one we want anyway).

Tragic news for the Morgan community. Bill Fink, US importer and total enthusiast for the marque, has died in a house fire. A huge loss, and sincere condolences to his family and friends.

https://www.sfgate.com/bayarea/artic...y-15045765.php

Among significant Morgans Bill owned at some point was the red SLR, which I’ve had the privilege to race many times with it’s current owner. Avatar changed in tribute, and found a lovely period 5 minute film of him racing the car....

As our house in the UK has never had oil or gas central heating I decided a couple of years ago to go with a fully electric 6kw thermal storage system. However although it works very well and requires no maintenance it is expensive to run, It's a good job we have our nice polluting wood burner to back it up!

I understand that oil and gas isn’t for everyone and it’s good to embrace electric. It certainly is the future, although as you say there will always be a reason to have a log burner

Mike, I think what Grif is getting at is that a log burner is very useful for getting rid of unwanted logs. Makes sense to me, I must get one in case I ever get a load of old logs I don't want.

Living where we do we've always had backup systems for when the power goes off although in fairness it doesn't happen as often or for as long as it used to. 2 open fires and a log burner keep us warm, bottled gas for the hob (no mains here) and a small generator (bought after the 87 hurricane) which will run the pump on the oil central heating, the freezer and an outside light to wind the neighbours up🤣

Ditto, in 1987 we were off the mains electric for a couple of weeks, we had an old 1947 solid fuel Rayburn with a back boiler that ran a couple of rads and also supplied us with hot water via a split system. I used the generator out of the race truck plugged into the ring main (mains switched off) so we had lighting and the radiator pump in use. We also could cook with the Rayburn and even had TV. Others around us were completely buggered and would pop in for a warm up and a cuppa

Ah, but there's no such thing as unwanted logs! My father-in-law, who was Polish, once told me he drove a tank in WW2 which could run off almost anything you could find in the forest, including wood. Be interesting to know whether that was true!
