A day at the Curburgring

With the Sheffield and Hallamshire Car Club, my duty was to be on the start line, lining up the entrants usi g timing beams. 65 entrants, some exotic cars, but not really able to take many pics, as we were kept so busy!

red and shiny….again!

Just treated the Mog to another session with Polytrol, a magic colour restoring fluid, as the grp wings had faded again…
looks great, again!
Had to get the car back into the garage quickly, as the heavens opened!

Heage: home of the 6 bladed Windmill

Worth the visit, though a warm day might…would... have been better! It was a Mog day out….and some Mogs had travelled there roofless!
Built over 200 years ago, the windmill still produces flour, and I will let you know how the bread I am making from their flour works out! Meanwhile, lots of pics of the innards of the mill, and some from outside.
*later…the first loaf of bread made was superb…might have to go back and buy more, no comparison to supermarket bread flour*

Afternoon out in Sheffo

with my pal Roger. 43 bus into Sheff, tram to Shalesmoor, to visit Kelham Island Museum. Felt weary, so called in to the Fat Cat….then a nice walk around the museum, where you learn something new every visit, then round the corner for a sit down in the Kelham Island Tavern, then a walk back to the tram stop, calling in at The Ship Inn. Uneventful tram and bus journey back to our respective homes, Rog declining the urge to stop off at the Coach and Horses, so I couldn’t either. Nice afternoon.

A pal and I went to The Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre…. https://www.lincsaviation.co.uk/ while the wives were at rehearsal, then this morning, we all went to the Lincoln Museum of Life…https://www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/heritage-and-tourism/museum-of-lincolnshire-life/
Two superb places…click also on the Selfie and Ice Cream pages for the latest there too!
