Delays in opening the site

Well the best laid plans an all that!

Unfortunately time has got the better of me and the site is not up and running in March as planned, think I am running on Canal time not Internet time!  We all know that feeling when the engineer promises to be there at 2pm and rolls up at 4pm if your lucky!

Seriously though I have just up loaded all the DVD’s from Video Active these will be shipped direct form the producer with no delivery charges! I have also cross linked them to the closest maps, etc. Please have a look there are some great DVD’s on here also have look at the 2 and 3 DVD box sets as they are great value for money.

Just found this on the back of a card from a boater friends funeral, I think it’s brilliant:

End of the Boating day

Mist on the water, the ripples flow by
Mauve and pink in the evening sky
Mallard are calling then silence descends
Another indelible boating day ends

Far in the distance I see shadows loom
Vague shapes of boats emerge from the gloom
A faint splash of water is all you can hear
From the leaky old lock gate or maybe the weir

Birds at their roost still rustling the leaves
A dabbling moorhen exploring the reeds
Blue wafts of smoke from a narrowboat float
Through the cool air of evening and up to our boat

From scenes such as this I’ll never tire
Tranquil scenes that can only inspire
The daylight is fading but I see from afar
The sign of a pub and its welcoming bar

by Peter “Pee Wee” Blowers

Kind of sums boating up for me!
