March 29th

We went over to Vic's storage unit to hand over some stuff to Gwen and Walter for their garage sales to fund a swing set for the kids.  After that, we went to dinner :o)

March 28th

I managed to get out on my bicycle for the first time this year.  A lot of the trails I use have been buggered up by the rain over the last few months, so I'm going to have to work out new routes.

In the evening, I went over to the Chevy dealer to see the orange Bolt in normal sunlight (it was overcast on Sunday when we looked at it).  No, still copper.

I got called for work in the evening, and spent hours working on a problem until I could pass it off to the Europeans to look at.  I need a vacation.

March 26th

We went and did some running around, and ended up at the Chevrolet dealer so I could see the Bolt in orange.  It looks copper, so meh.  We had a long chat with a sales dude (who admitted he didn't know much about the car, which was refreshing).  I got to show Vic the view from above thing on the Premium model, and she really liked it.  We're negotiating, as the Jeep is coming up on 7 years old now :o)

March 25th

Vince came over so I could pay him for the annual on the plane, and give him a toy Mini, and we spent a few hours putting the world to rights.  You're welcome.

March 19th

We pottered around doing nothing much, as I was still pretty tired from yesterday being a long assed day.

March 18th

I flew to Salt Lake City, then on to Sacramento.  SLC is actually pretty efficient as a first port into the US, at least a lot faster than Los Angeles.  Tilly kind of remembered me.

March 17th

We went to the Retreat, at the end of Mum and Dad's road, where we ran into Vince while we were waiting for Caroline, Rom and Juno the dog to arrive.

I met Jason, Fiona and Rob for dinner in Staines.

March 15th

I took the train in to Wokingham to see Phil and Andy, a couple of guys I used to work with at HP, and Samsung in Andy's case.

March 14th

I had been aiming to see Terry, Vince and Emma, but her mum was sick, so i just had a quiet night.

March 13th

We went and had dinner with Barry and Veronica, who I haven't seen for years.

March 12th

We went down to Sussex to see an aunt I haven't seen for over 20 years.

March 10th

Sue was supposed to be coming down, but didn't.  I went and met Jason and Laura.  Eventually.

March 8th

I met Jason for dinner. When I got home, I got to try and help Caroline get her new printer working.  Over Facebook messenger. I think we were successful.

March 7th

We went to the chippie :o)

March 6th

We rewired one of Dad's storage heaters, as the switch had failed.  In the evening, I went out to dinner with Emma.

March 5th

I arrived in the UK, and spent the day eating bacon sandwiches and drinking Lift.

March 4th

I started the day at the airfield, cooking breakfasts.

Then I went and caught a plane to Salt Lake City, where I sat next to a very entertaining drunk girl, and on to Heathrow, where I had a row to myself :o)

March 1st

A new month, so here are the solar stats:

In the evening, I went to the EAA board meeting.  We had it at a restaurant in Lincoln, rather than the usual pizza place, as the pizza place is shutting down :o(
