Bubble & Squeak

Just spoke to Caroline (Squeak) & Steve (BBQ King 11)-(London Bubble).
Typical Cockney...I was thanking Steve effusively for all his help with the BBQ and he asked me where he would send the invoice & How we would like to pay!!!! They thought Suz. Pete was like Johnny Rotten & liked that he was a gunners geeza...

Caroline enjoyed meeting you all...however we need to explain that Steve is not usually allowed in the house although we allow him to run up and down the deck and think it's so cute when he bangs on the window for food

Caroline made the fab spanakopita ... for an Irishwoman she does some mean Greek food...

Missus

Found a recipe!!!!
http://www.eco-natural.com/recipes/spanakopita.html

Interesting fact about the salt recommended...the salt gatherers don't have loos where they work so it's extra salty In fact it might be worth giving it a wash first

Still awake......just!

What a brill weekend, all due to Paul and his Missus. Hospitality second to none, again.
Great to meet all those at the BBQ and out on the water. Sorry we missed Searider.
Look forward to returning the hospitality in the near future.

Well, top-banana and i have been back in Margate for about an hour... not that it took me 24hours to drive 200 miles you understand, but never-the-less we both need a rest after a superb but exhausting weekend.

I'd like to add my thanks to everyone in the whole world for their bit...and appolgise to the Jackeens for having nothing to do with the preperation, cooking or clearing up at their superb gaff!!!

I met JK, he does exsist!

I became an honoury NWRibster (when do i get the pin badge for my dry suit?) and won an award for not only NOT holding on in frightening sea conditions, but managing to capture some video aswell - more on that later, i've a few hours work to do here first.

Oh, and the critical staistics Missus missed out is:

Time top-banana spent in water: 10%
Time top-banana spent in air: 90%
Average time period between hearing the prop: 10secs

Must just add a big thanks to Rogue for his organising of the berth for BJ and the use of his splendid offices and helmets.

Many thanks Stu. see you again soon

Daniel...no expectation of help at all...we only gave Suzuki Pete the hoover cos he's hyperactive!!!!! And houseguests always chip in at the shebeen (they tend to feel sorry for us). I'm sure Timmy had ye polishing his beer bottles for him in Soton!!!!Everyone noted you 3 as very sociable chaps.Thanks for fitting in so well.

Amazing to see Top Banana in action...more airtime than Ozzy Osbourne...will add vital stats to our records!!!

Most importantly...glad to see ye all home safe...

P & K

only if i had any beer!!!

i think we're both lucky that i don't drink, i am coz it would cost me a small fortune having Dan round drinking and secondly, coz it would be me clearing up his leftovers of the beer!!!

thanks again for a great weekend

oh and thanks about the bachelor advertisement of Dan and I!!

Timmy

Don't let him organise anything for Christ's sake - we'll be white water rafting down the Colorado in 4m RIBs

More facts and figures...if you care...

The "well 'ard" RIBsters covered:
28.5nm on Saturday
35nm on Sunday

(distance from the GPS therefore over ground... would be quite a bit longer through the water me thinks)

Average speed:
Sat 7.28knts
Sun 10.9knts

top-b's max speed over the two days: 43.5knts

I've uploaded 5 movies of black jack, i don't think they will stream very well, so right click and "save as" and play them local please!

http://dev.ets.biz/top-b/black-jack/mvi_3805.avi (3.7Mb)
http://dev.ets.biz/top-b/black-jack/mvi_3807.avi (400k)
http://dev.ets.biz/top-b/black-jack/mvi_3812.avi (700k)
http://dev.ets.biz/top-b/black-jack/mvi_3814.avi (1.8Mb) -- this is by far the best!
http://dev.ets.biz/top-b/black-jack/mvi_3815.avi (1.6Mb)

For those who care i've uploaded our GPS tracks here:

now lets spare a thought for others!!

hi all, fab pics and movies Dan, as always. just to make everyone aware unless you werent already, this was a report from the Daily Telegraph Newspaper on Monday morning after our class weekend.

I found it whilst looking for a piece of research on something else and thought it was wise to show everyone that someone upstairs among the clouds was looking down on us and kept us safe.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main...questid=107896

Apart from that, keep ribbing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Timmy
