Notes from a remote island


#603

7pm tonight there will be live video of the torchlit parade and the burning of the Viking ship


#604

(casual thread necro)

I had that map on my wall for many years.

Frankly, I’m buggered if I know what happened to it.


#605

New shed underway with the help of a mate from Durham who is staying with us for a couple of weeks.

Pretty pleased with it all considering four days ago it was just a pile of timber


#606

It’s an Amish community, I bloody new it, barns everywhere. Can’t so much as blink and another bloody barn goes up.

What’s in this shed? Workshop?


#607

I’m still waiting for the listening room to be finished.


#608

I can see the roulette table fitting in and perhaps a couple of dancing poles but how does the hot tub figure into things?


#609

They’re the ones who are allowed to set up casinos and whorehouses outside the law, right ?

#610

No, already have a workshop in a stone outbuilding.

This is just for storage.


#611

Promotional video for ‘The AdderStane’ - a book by Fetlar resident Avalina Kreska. It is a virtual reality flight from Sumburgh (Southern tip of Shetland Mainland) to Fetlar and then a short aerial tour of Fetlar.


#612

Fail! I couldn’t see your new shed :roll_eyes:

Also, it needed a Steven Wilson soundtrack :smirk:


#613

No one deserves that kind of cruelty.


#614

Stunning !


#615

To fit in a prog soundtrack, the flight would have had to be made in one of these…


#616

And then set on fire?


#617

That would make it into a classic rock album


#618

Shed finished apart from a couple of internal braces and a bit more external treatment

Doesn’t look very big in the pic, but it’s 16’ x 8’ and 8’ high at the front


#619

Good craft.


#620

:grinning:Needs windows and a patio


#621

When do you move in?


#622

That’ll be for the summer house,

…when I build it
