Well as a Cancarian I'm bound to be pro shellfish :)
What´s a cancarian?
And talking of fish. I´d like to buy a goldfish, do you know where I can buy one around here? Only place I know is in camden Town, and I´m not sure tube rides are good for fish.
Vicktoria? There's a shop called something like "Tropical Paradise". Right behind the Argos.
I don´t live near Victoria...but I like your user pic.
Ta - it's supposed to be a pissed Russian peasant.
Have you been to Tropical Tank
? I think they have a list of dealers in goldfish and suchlike.
Oh...I thought he was praying-singing or something. ;-) It´s a good pissed peasant. You can clearly tell he´s Russian...or maybe Turkish.
*Clicks on the tank*
Well, since he's pissed he can easily be singing :-)
It goes with the whole being Russian, doesn´t it?
Not that I´d want to stereotype, of course. :)
Throw a log on the fire Misha and I'll light it with this bottle of vodka.
How is the gliding going? Flown solo yet? Since I don't read Russian I miss most of your comments :(
Going :-). Not yet solo, but managed to badly bend one of the rudder pedals of a K13 when spinning last Sunday. It was hair-raising - the thing just did not want to go back to the normal position!
Just imagine this: you apply full opposite rudder, and then you have no chance whatsoever to take it off.
Thanks God I had an instructor behind my back...
Yes spinning can get quite hairy ... like your icon? Mostly with training gliders it is hard work getting them into a spin in the first place but there are some that will do so quite effectively - the instructors know just how to do it :)
Hmm getting the rudder stuck would probably have you going into a spin in the opposite direction ... now where is the "eject" button ?
Have fun, good winds, active thermals and safe landings

Re: Happy memories
Thanks! And I do hope that I'll be signed off on spins this weekend. I must say this is the one thing about gliding which I do not like.
As far as getting a trainer into a spin is concerned - dead easy with a K-13. Stall it and apply full rudder - and there you go.
K-13 has never killed anyone spinning, though - or this is what I am being told. Unlike Puchacz which apparently love to spin on the winch.
Good we don't have them....
Watch out ... not only is Mr agfoxx a fox, but he's a flying fox as well!
Woshhhhhhhhhh ....... there he goes :)
*watches as various animals fly by*
An updated version of Noah's Ark?
Cancarian ... birth zodiac sign of Cancer ... or did I mis-spell it.
I'd guess there is a pet shop if you go along the road to Rani's ... but I'm just guessing.
You probably spelled it very much right but I didn´t make the link.
Thanks for the tip. I´ll have a tottle along there and have a look.
Good to see you adding wit and interlect to the conversation ;)
Hope your day goes OK
Peace and tranquility
hahahaha! your joke said it all. What more could I add? ;)

What more could you add?
How about a fishy joke?
Ok, just codding *groan* I don't want to plaice *groan* you under any strain here, nor to rays *groan* the hopes of good humour in my journal.
PS ... Roc on ;)
*much eepage and grinding of teeth...*
Although my birthdate falls under Cancer I tell folks I was born under the sign of "Delivery Room"
This is a good one...hee hee!
