5 Squadron Plaque

My old Binbrook squadron seemingly is set to disband next year, they are currently flying the Radeon Sentinel which they say is no longer needed. I have decided to make a squadron plaque to commemorate the squadron.

Made a start on the first part, a maple leaf made out of DAS air drying clay, it will get painted and varnished when it dries. Next will be a Lightning silhouette which I hope to make out of brass sheet, maybe applying a silver coating, but we will see.

Open University

During this lockdown to stop getting bored on days I cant get outside, I had a look at the OU open learning courses and found one on "Intro to Cyber Security" so enrolled on the course (a free one) and really enjoyed learning more about a subject I only knew the basics of.

It was advertised as an 8 week course with 24hours of study bur open to the length it takes to complete. I completed the course in less than a week and found the subject very interesting.

I was emailed a statement of Participation cewrtificate and earned an OU open learning badge for my efforts.

VE Day

Yesterday was spent in a street party in our street, quite a few gathered and although we kept 2 metres apart, it was quite enjoyable to meet the neighbours and share a few stories and some food, biscuits etc., one chap even brought a bottle of whisky which was very welcome.

Vape E Liquid

I don't get through much vape e-liquid, but since lock down I wondered how I could get fresh supplies. No problem, went on to the Vape shop Facebook page and found this service being offered. Have ordered what I need, and it will be delivered today.


Lawnmower

Today I tried out the new lawnmower on the bit of council grass patch adjacent to our house. I also bought an electrical extension lead which I thought would be long enough to reach the grass patch, but had to plug in another extension lead. Spent more time clearing the broken twigs from the grass which fall from the silver birch which is now approx 50 feet high. The mower worked a treat, looks quite tidy out there now.
