Successful Operation

The CD player section of the Midi HiFi underwent open-case surgery this morning.
A good blast from the can of compressed air, and all is working again.
The cleaning CD was run to give the laser a good clean, and the covers replaced.
Every thing now working again.

Poorly Hi Fi

Why O' Why does my Hi Fi system decide it wont play CDs just before every Christmas.
I know exactly what the trouble is, the laser needs a clean with my can of compressed air.
(It wont run the cleaning disk)
Good job I'm confident taking the covers off to look at it as we dont have anywhere in town that would do a repair for a reasonable price anymore. Plus it does it on a regular basis, think its because the 3 x cd changer drawers dont have a good dust seal. Somthing to look at when I decide to change it.

Its now raining, Just got back from town.
Actually, just got back from the pub. Had a couple of pints of Acorn Yorkshire Pride. (Very Nice.)

Temperature outside is 5.0 degrees Centigrade. Still got 2 days left on the weekend.

Long Weekend

Got to use up the last of the holidays, so a nice 3 day weekend starts here. Just 2 more full weeks before winding down for Christmas. Well ready for it. Usually take advantage of a nice long break to chill,relax and catch up on listening to the new cds I've bought over the last few months.
Always seem to get more listening time in over Christmas than other times in the year.

Personal nomination for the best Christmas song ever.

Fairytale Of New York - By the much missed Kirsty Macoll & the Pogues.

Keep watchning this space for my personal top 10 albums I've bought this year.

Current outside temperature, 2.9 degrees Centigrade. Not bothered , dont have to get up for work in the morning.

Snow Snow - What Snow?

While parts of the country are basking under a blanket of white, we had a very thin dusting about 7-45 am just as I was getting towards work. Did'nt stay long either. More forcast for Thursday :)

2.0 degrees Centigrade outside at the moment, but still dropping. Looks like another frozen car in the morning.
