Back to tapes and coming home. I came home, my local library loaned tapes, I’m here home carrying aloft my borrowed tape, ‘After the Break’. I installed the tape into the near newly purchased pristine Sharp radio/tape recorder. Pressed go, however, no sound, alas, I was not to hear the lovely bouzouki opening and Christy’s singing, ‘Once I was a waiting man….’ Nothing, silence, then a small squeak sound. So upon a ‘not thorough’ investigation and getting the little door to open, I discovered my problem, and to my anxiety, the tape had got eaten up into the innards. Oh do I remember sitting down; crisis. What do I do now? With a eyebrow tweezers, surgical dexterity and precision I got all the tape out, yards(!) of tape, this new Sharp tape recorder I was more worried about, feck the county council and a single cassette tape, so I rewound all the tape back into the cassette, not sure did I chance playing the tape but it was fine. The tape hadnt broken. Somewhere someone has that cassette unknownst that it was ‘eaten’ by a tape recorder and survived. That radio tape recorder is still here.
D, I thought you were going to tell us, the Prosperous tape had fallen out of the bag and was lost.
This is a great site, horse racing tips and live falcons feeding their young, That link was here last year as well, I think. I spotted that result, the Scottish National, he was 20/1 so bookies would have paid out nicely for each way. Another site, about two years ago, had a webcam, paradoxically, the camera was nearly ‘too good.’ A nest box, two baby owls, standing like two soldiers on guard, then suddenly, a big fluttering of wings and excitement and a mother owl arrives through the door, a rat hanging from its mouth and it’s dropped down into the mouth of the most able chick who pushes forward, no table manners. Well and good if the other parent arrives to give a dead mouse to the other chick while our first chick is still burping having swallowed a full rat. It resembled a miniature horror movie. However a pair of feeding owls are worth a lot to a farmer, they’ll help a farmer to clear his farm of rodents. The Berkley falcons and what we see looks tame in comparison but interesting.
