Sent off for load of split rings and lobster clips. The aim is for all my possessions to be linked together so I stop bloody losing stuff.

Following the discussion on the Humour and Jokes thread, I finally bought an air fryer. Just got it today so haven't used it much but have tried it with the most important food group - bacon. And it was lovely.

Taste/texture wise is it more like frying or grilling?

The latest Macbook Pro with the new M1 chip.

https://www.apple.com/macbook-pro-13/

When the screen broke for the second time over Christmas, I decided to retire my old 2014 model.

That said, I've no complaints. The old machine served for six years with practically zero crashes and a battery that--somehow--still holds a respectable charge.

Battery on the new model is incredible. Machine runs quick and silently, but the energy bar moves like it's practically in stasis.

All of which is why I haven't been posting very much this past fortnight.

Discovered that an old friend has become an NLP/Self-help guru. He bought a copy of my book so I thought I had better find out more about NLP.

Just bought an old flightstick for my PC, CH Flightstick Pro, with a gameport plug. Will use it with Elite Dangerous.
Need to buy a gameport to USB adapter as well.

A little late-night whimsy from Ebay (I was the only bidder) - a fish carved from a bit of drift wood. It's about 6" with a fine splayed tail and I think it is rather splendid.
