Not excited, just ironically realising that in order to remain in a calm and peaceful environment I have to do these things when I could be fettling. Anyway just been listening to Floyd. Is On the turning away one of the best lyrics?


On the turning away
From the pale and downtrodden
And the words they say
Which we won't understand
"Don't accept that what's happening
Is just a case of others' suffering
Or you'll find that you're joining in
The turning away"
It's a sin that somehow
Light is changing to shadow
And casting it's shroud
Over all we have known
Unaware how the ranks have grown
Driven on by a heart of stone
We could find that we're all alone
In the dream of the proud
On the wings of the night
As the daytime is stirring
Where the speechless unite
In a silent accord
Using words you will find are strange
And mesmerised as they light the flame
Feel the new wind of change
On the wings of the night
No more turning away
From the weak and the weary
No more turning away
From the coldness inside
Just a world that we all must share
It's not enough just to stand and stare
Is it only a dream that there'll be
No more turning away?

I'm getting old.

Boggles me that I can lie here with a device as thick as a cackliator and watch Le Mans beamed footage live from the inside of a car. Kirk would be amazed.

What is the sound of one hand clapping a tumble dryer?




It's Zen you see :wink:

Bed.

Our sensor dries, it comes up saying 2h, 5mins and then runs for 4 hours, well depending what goes in.


Take a queue from the HGttG and break out the towel(s). Put a (large) dry towel in with the clothes at the start. After 10 minutes pull it out, hang it to air dry somewhere and put another dry towel in. Pull that one out after another 10 minutes and hang that one up to air dry too. Let the clothes finish drying and check your new total drying time now.

Go to a homeless shelter once a week and get clothes. Burn old clothes.

We barely use our drier, but it is certainly a godsend when you need it.

With a house the size of a gnat's palace, there's no room for a tumble dryer. It goes outside on the line til it's dry.
This year, I estimate it should be dry by October 15th. :roll:



And, yes, very profound, according to the other half - but his brain's been fried by all that wailing on Great Gig In The Sky......

I have never considered Floyd to be profound.

The feeling the music instils is perhaps; but everything is pretty simple and bullet pointed musically and lyrically, not particularly multi layered.

One of my all time favourite bands.
