Feeling pretty low key here so gone with a low key G, the DW-5200. Half hourly chimes helping to keep me awake ;)

Up at 0500, over to the barracks to pick up my armoured car. Batteries dead :( so drove normal car to the annual vehicle gathering in Wickham Square (Hampshire). No-one organises it, people turn up with anything interesting that has wheels - tractors, scooters, muscle cars, customs, commercials, military, motor bikes - classics and modern ...

Met a lot of old friends and club members and helped Mike with his 1936 Leyland escape ladder. Unfortunately lack of hydraulic fluid only allowed the ladder to extend to 31 feet so didn't get the natural high I was seeking - it will go to 101 feet...

Looks a pretty big event from the pics. 30ft would be tall enough for me...

Anyhow pulled out the DW-6900 here.

Quite quiet compared to previous years. It normally gets totally jammed from sround 0830, didn't seem to get that busy until around 1030, just wondering if some people thought it was today.

Back to Paddington for the third and, I hope, last time on my lock drilling task. The supervisor has put in a complaint about me in that I left without completing the job. I did point out that I had worked nine hours before coming to site. Spent another six hours (plus four travel) today. I doubt his union would approve of a 15 hour shift!

One of my watches that needed changing from DST still!

30 feet up is worrying, far enough to hurt when you fall. 100 feet is a lot better - a couple of seconds of terror then oblivion :)

Panorama stitching is actually dead easy using a free Microsoft product - MICE - Microsoft Image Composite Editor - google it to download

Today has been a bit hectic, I am now in Doncaster - 14 hours on the road for which I get paid 13. Brought another "change from DST needed" watch out with me:

Not played with any panorama software for a few years, might have to try the Microsoft one.

Went with the GW-M5600 here today.

Saturday 31st - Jason wanted to come out for the afternoon so I took him down to the beach:

I like the way that the font seems to change according to the way the light falls on it.

Jason then wanted to go into the town where we selected a few pots of paint so that we could do a few touch-ups and mods to his friends:

Hope you all enjoyed your New Year celebrations, all the best for 2012
