Click here for my short burst of enthusiasm for this achievement,
and some video coverage of the historic event.
Trying to get what I want from a computer. A battle with Windows 10 to get a picture displayed MY way.
Last weekend, as I walked from work to buy my lunch, I passed a road sign for "TRUCKS CROSSING" which looked like it had been hit by a truck. It was lying on the footpath, broken/torn nearly in two, no sign (ha-ha) of whatever it had been mounted on.
As I walked on, I wondered if it could be of any use, and came up with an idea. On my way back I completed its division into two, and carried the more intact half off back to work, and eventually home.
I had decided I could make a nicely visible, fluorescent orange, reflectorised street number for my letterbox.
The sign has eight layers: -
Now all I have to do is re-mount the box to the post, as I have just noticed the angle-iron brackets are badly rusted.
I am an extremely intelligent, witty and fascinating guy.
