Got the Worst News today, cancer biopsy shows very bad news. Gill will need chemotherapy very soon then radiotherapy.

Problem is we move to Shropshire on Thursday and her notes from Llanelli hospital have not been received by Shrewsbury. They wont do/say anything to us until we register with English NHS next week.

This is a living nightmare !!!

Enjoyed my time on this (almost defuncted) forum.
Take care of your selves.

Hot again, youngest daughter is doing her silver DoE, a three day hike in the Preseli hills, not much fun in this. I'm going to start laying out irrigation pipes :roll:

If it makes you feel any better-

(Bearings on the water pumps water pump failed and the resulting wobbling was too much for such old blades! New pump from vapormatic -£39, spare fan from my "too good to throw away store". Did a few other jobs while it was in)



So it was out with the reserve pump which given this heatwave it looks like we will have to run both sets

Image


Bought it some years ago but never used in actual anger, once I'd sorted the control box wiring, bad earths in the murphy switchgages and a broken alternator terminal she's running well


Can't show you a photo of the other irrigation trouble but back in the winter our digger driver found the 8" underground plastic main in the bottom of a ditch he was cleaning out........... so they have been sorting that, luckily I have some huge johnsons couplings for another main extension thats in the pipeline and they found another bit of the old type main to effect a repair just in time!

We put a non genuine water pump on a 6.354 engine a few years ago, not the same tractor anymore, overheats on the slurry pump tripping out the epu, and the heater hasn't worked since. :? , keep meaning to put a genuine pump on.
