How to pack a handlebar

This arrived at the office today, it’s a motorbike handle bar for a motocross machine.

Obviously, if you don’t have a box that fits you just cut the ends and send it like that!

Luckily such pieces are robust and made to take a few knocks in their lifetime 🙂


Unlikely to happen to me

This is an hilarious clip and it is unlikely to happen to me for 2 reasons:

1, I don’t park on the street

2, My car has an unusual colour!

Cold weather reaches -20°C

We were under the -20°C this morning, no water in the house as the mains were frozen behind the kitchen units.

We already had the ‘fridge open to heat the house, now we can open the freezer to heat the house as well 🙂


Cold weather also in Belgium

Our kitchen sink this morning

It was -18°C in the Eiterbach on the way to work this morning.  Our water is frozen in the pipes (again) so we have opened the fridge to help heat the house 🙂


My next tattoo

My next tattoo

Following our little film, I have been looking for new tattoos and found this very fitting one for me:

Cacit vitamin D3

My doctor prescribed this supplement (Calcit vitamin D3) to ensure rapid repair of my broken pelvis.  It comes in 8g sachets which you add to water before drinking.  Easy!

But when you add it to a glass of water you get a volcanic eruption which empties the glass! It’s great fun to watch but not very practical.  Only by adding the sachet contents VERY slowly whilst stirring furiously can you get the full dose in the glass.

Great fun!
