Walk To The Wetlands

With wonderful 15 degrees sunshine, I suggested that my dad, Stefano and I walk to the Wetlands center while the ladies had a nail appointment.

We walked down Cat Hill which seams to always be flooded.

Then shortly before the center there is some lovely spray... Large too!

When we got there the ladies arrived shortly after.
So it was time to eat...

And here's the EveryTrail recording:

Flying To UK - Christmas 2011

on our way to England for Christmas on Christmas DAY!

All looking well at this point....

But as we came down to land, Mr. Bogged Nose started to get pains...
Magic therapy: Plastic cups on your ears filled with cold damp tissues!

Having a worried lady sat next to you doesn't help either!

But all turned out ok, and we were soon back at my parents.

New WACOM At The Office.

Well after receiving and installing my new workstation at the office I found out exactly what DOES NOT work under Windows XP 64Bit....

- My Canon Scanner!
- My WACOM Intuos2 Tablet!

So I ordered some new ones... Well let's face it, the others were over 5 years old!
So when I ordered them I placed the optional Air Brush pen. It's great!

Kino Time - Puss In Boots

We had the honour of having Giuseppe with us today, so Anna decided that we should go to the cinema to watch a film with him.

It a good film.... it would have been better for me had I seen it in the original language.

Thunderbird Stripped Down - Again!

Trying to solve the ticking 'feature' once again!
So, Moto91 have started to strip down my 'Bird (Thunderbird). They are doing it now as they can take their time and check every little detail.

During this work I'll be getting a new paint & varnish done. What scheme, I hear you ask yourselves... Well, I have no idea!

It was a wonderful day.

It's Finally Raining

And of course it started just then when I started to ride my bike back from work! But by the looks it is only in the North and West of Switzerland... In the center it's still bone dry!

Tigger On The Klausen Pass

Well it is hard to believe but the Klausen pass is STILL open!
*scratching head and pondering hard*
It's almost December and there is NO SNOW up there. That's unbelievable.

But it's also goooooood....
It meant that I had the road to myself :-)

I rode up from the Glarus side over to Uri. The pass really starts down at Linthal where the first couple of curves when climbing out are cobbled!

From there you ride up onto the Urner Boden where it (the valley, but not the road :-) flattens out a little with spectacular scenery.

Then you have a few more curves by Jägerbalm that takes you up and past the Vorder Chlus - a VERY impressive curved wall of rock...

... before coming to the top of the pass.

Looking down towards Altdorf you could see the thick foggy soup!

A wonderful ride - especially nice since it was the first pass I've ridden with the Tigger and there was absolutely no other traffic around.!

When Will It Stop?

Sat at home, hot cushion on my neck, schlaf-nerven tea in front of me and my head thumping away!

Just look at the rapid change in air pressure this afternoon...
Now wonder today was a nightmare.

Another Night Of Headache

That's a good zig-zag profile if ever I saw one!

I'm sure it has something to do with my condition.
