    Friday 16th. November.

    As the wind had gone around a little NE I decided to go blow out some cobwebs today at the Rockley end of the harbour with Mr Nash. The plus side being we used about Β£2.50 in fuel and managed to drown a few worms. The bonus was my first flounder of the season, followed up with plenty of small bass. Not a huge fish but very thick in the body. However as Allan said plenty of crabs stealing the baits still.

    Not going out !

    All ok today ! Route in/out is a bit longer now the Bar has grown to the East . The yellow buoys help but if the tide is down a bit or any swell you need to go well East of the last yellow. Sea state was OK early on today but got rather snotty as the wind freshened from SE...then went to S and eased a bit. Had a try for whiting ...and managed a couple but was besieged by dogfish. Came back in [with the wind] found a few livebaits and got my bass.....then into the harbour to see if any flounders...and managed one !...before an early finish.

    I'm afraid we will never regain the reliability and longevity of the engineering of the Victorian age (there were a few exceptions I admit) when it seems that projects based on tendering to achieve the lowest price and quickest delivery win the day. I am sad to say that in my experience many Companies that win these projects have no idea of what they are getting into as they are basically shell companies reliant upon a previous old school reputation and now have minimal resources so that once they win the job then panic sets in and they try to recruit "staff" to complete it relying on managing the contract to save or make even money . The Victorians generally provided a realistic fixed price for the job and selection was based on the preferred design solution The quality of the available mechanical/electrical equipment available in today's throw away society is price driven and is selected to meet the warranty period which is generally 13 months from customer takeover by which time it has served its purpose and is generally worn out and gets replaced by the customer (or left to rot) with an identical 2 year lifespan unit and so the cycle continues. Granted the Victorian engineers way over designed their projects but they were also maintainable unlike those of today as the necessary skill sets have been purposely removed from the marketplace by the Government sacrificing the Manufacturing for the Financial markets. If the bearing set needs replacing on the twin sails bridge I suspect that it will be replaced with exactly the same type that has failed. There will be no money available or interest it getting the fault properly analysed and an improved design implemented . It will come back to bite them mark my words Just my three penne'th😎

    Very funny / hope it is ok

    BEST JOKE IVE HEARD IN AGES πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚... A young man called Chris from London wanted to buy a Christmas present for his new girlfriend. They hadn't been seeing each other for very long and she lived in Scotland. Chris consulted with his sister and decided, after careful consideration, that a pair of good quality gloves would strike the right note... not too romantic and not too personal. Off he went with his sister to Harrods and they selected a dainty pair of fur lined quality leather gloves. His sister bought a pair of sexy knickers for herself at the same time. Harrods had a free gift wrap offer but the assistant mixed up the two items, the sister got the gloves and Chris unknowingly got the knickers. Good old Chris sent off his gift wrapped present in a parcel with the following letter. Dear Maggie, I chose these because I've noticed that you are not wearing any when we go out in the evenings. If it had not been for my sister I would have chosen the long ones with buttons, but she wears shorter ones (which are easier to remove). These are a very delicate shade, but the lady I bought them from showed me the pair she had been wearing for the past three weeks and I hardly noticed any marks. I had her try yours on for me and she looked really smart in them even though they were a little bit tight on her. She also said that they rub against her ring which helps keep it clean. In fact she hasn't needed to wash it since she began wearing them. I wish I was there to put them on for you the first time, as no doubt many other hands will touch them before I have a chance to see you again. When you take them off remember to blow into them a little bit because they will be naturally a little damp from wearing. Just imagine how many times my lips will kiss them during the coming year. I hope you will wear them for me on our next date. All my love, Chris P.S. My mum tells me that the latest style is to wear them folded down with a little bit of fur showing.

    Call centre exam

    Mujibar was trying to get a job in India . The Personnel Manager said, 'Mujibar, You have passed all the tests, except one. It is a simple test of your English language skills. Unless you pass it , you cannot qualify for this job.' Mujibar said, 'I am ready.' The manager said, you must make a sentence using the words Yellow, Pink, and Green .' Mujibar thought for a few minutes and said, 'Mister manager, I am ready.' The manager said, 'Go ahead.' Mujibar said, 'The telephone goes green, green, and I pink it up, and say, yellow, this is Mujibar.' Mujibar now works at a call center. No doubt you have spoken to him. I know I have.

    Call centre exam

    No disrespect to people who work in call centres from the Indian subcontinent, but sometimes their accent is difficult to understand when they speak politely, I found that I can understand them better when they speak with passion and emotions. This is 100% true story happened today. Had a chap (he introduced himself as David) called me up from Microsoft at 14:00, apparently I've some malicious malware on my computer, and he would help me get rid of them. As some of you are aware, I'm of Chinese origin, my English is good but sometime pronunciation s can be a little off. However David really has a strong Indian accent and sometimes he has trouble hearing me. It took us 15 mins before he got to the stage where I near to press a few bottons. "Now press the ctr key and the window key together and hold them down": he said. I fumbled for a bit and told him:"I can't". He couldn't understand what I was trying to tell him, but he was patient and after another 5 mins, he told me to press down ctr with 1 finger and the window key with another finger, and that's all. "That's what I was trying to tell you, I physically can't." I said, "you see I had an accident a few years back and lost my left hand and all my fingers except my middle finger on my right hand". At this point, his English became really good. " I'm going to find you and kill you" " Fxxk you......"

    Everyone must know that we should have gone for a higher bridge that ; 1. Does not open/close 2. Does not therefore fail open or closed, bringing traffic to a stop. 3 Does not cost a fortune in maintenance over its lifetime 4 Does not need a team of 32 people and a dedicated VHF channel just to get it opening and closing to schedule.
