Tara Lynn,above, a Fine Shapely Lass
There has been some heated discussion in the Tap Room of the Mason’s Arms among connoisseurs of what, in Yorkshire, is known as a “Well Made Lass” with regard to the relative merits of Tara Lynn ( supported by members of the Amateur Operatic Society who would like her in their next Pantomime) and Johanna Dray (Supported by The Fur and Feather Club who want her to open their show.)

Drucilla found the only way she could get about in the recent Spring weather was on horseback. Edgar, her pet raven, is wearing his Owl Cosplay outfit.
With a name Josif Stalin on its “forehead”, what else could it be but a Stalin vanity project.
A local council decided against flying the flag of St George after concerns were raised that it would offend the town’s 16 Muslim residents.
Drucilla HATES Edgars birthday because she has to spend it in the graveyard with him while he utters profound statements.

MASTER Li & CAPTAIN CLOGIRON’S ANSON ENGINE MUSEUM TRIP. Part 2
Just to prove we saw steam in action above is the 1872 Fowler beam engine in action.
Also on display was this huge model of the Poynton area in 1901, to a scale of 1/ 800th. I had not realised Poynton was such a coal mining area as it is very Hoity Toity nowadays, a bit different from Goldthorpe (Where they burnt Maggie in effigy)
Overall view of model.
The colliery in the foreground. It is about 2 inches long.
MASTER Li & CAPTAIN CLOGIRON’S ANSON ENGINE MUSEUM TRIP. Part 1
While mainly infernal combustion, the Anson Engine Museum has a few steam engines which they run on certain Sundays. As die hard steam men this was must for Master Li and me but they have an I.C.engine there that we love more than any other motive power. it is the Gardner 4T5 Semi Diesel which has a row of four blowlamps across the cylinder heads, these are lit and play upon the cylinder heads for four minutes before the engine is ready to start. Once running the blowlamps are extinguished. It is so magnificently hands on and practical.None of your computerised push button stuff here. You can see this on a video HERE
Blowlamps in action.
They are always on about too many cars on the road, congestion etc. Master Li says that if all vehicles had blowlamp start engines, NO power steering and crash gearboxes the problem would be solved as only those with skill would be on the roads and there are not many of us. ( Master Li is an HGV driver and I drove Reliants with worn out synchromesh as well as a crash box MG F type)
Good stuff on the lobby chair again!
Lately, the lobby chair has only offered empty cookie tins and magazines.

I’ve been wondering how to mark the occasion.
Well, I found it amusing!
