NS&I

 


National Savings and Investments, one of the best investments I have ever made, Premium Bonds and also a Growth Bond as paert of my portfolio. Premium Bonds have more tham paid dividends with prizes most months from the draw.

The 3Year Growth Bond with Gross interest of 2.20% is more than most other safe investments. Well worth considering.

All change

 Last week virus rules for the Christmas period were relaxed, allowing 3 families to get together for a five day period. Today the rules have changed yet again with the mutation of the virus causing many more infections, mainly in London and the south east. Only now allowed i family member and only for one day.

Lets just hope the vaccine being implementsed will be effective for this new virus strain

Christmas 2020

This Xmas is going to be a lot different, no family mixing, so I was just asked what I wanted for Chrisrmas dinner, had no problem making a choice, a Madras curry was mine. A very good suggestion followed, why not get a few take aways from the Hel Al, brilliant idea, the others can then be freezed for New Years day. Not only saving on the washing up, but as I hate brussels, am happy with that idea.

Todays excitement

 It was not raining today, so decided to have a walk, stretch the legs. Stopped in at the shops on the way and bought some milk, can't contain myself, exciting it was not, but at least the legs got a bit of much needed exercise.

A year ago today

This day a year back I attended the Twilight Lightning Preservation Groups photo shoot event. It also was a special occasion to remember one of my pals who had recently died, Peter O'Callaghan also an LPG member. Little did we know then, that this would be the last fast taxi event that the two jets would perform.

The airfield was leased to Cox Automotive who store cars for sale at auctions. Today there is a fence surrounding the Lightning Hangar which prohibits movement of the jets. A Museum is being planned and work under way to clear the trees adjacent to the Hangar on which hardcore will be eventually laid.

Fenced in November 2020




Look what came in the post

 A large parcel arrived on my doorstep today, a box full of Lightning Aircraft plastic models 1/72 scale. A chap got my contact details off the Lightning Association website (I am their webmaster) he had a load of Lightning models that he said he would never get around to making, and would I like them. They will go to The Lightning Preservation Group shop at Bruntingthorpe where the proceeds will help with funds to keep our two jets running.

Latest Covid news

Our East Lindsey Council have issued a new directive for our area, as covid cases are increasing. We were already in a government lockdown, but this is now an even more worrying trend. Looks like even going out for a walk or bike ride is off the table for the time being.



New Kitchen

Sometime last October we decided that we needed a new kitchen. Following a recommendation we had a survey done, and later visited the showro...
