June 26, 2017

Greetings to you all. In case you forget we are really a continuing airworthiness organisation looking after hot air balloons and balloon ride operators but get involved in all sorts of other stuff. Now that’s out the way its quite extraordinary in that we seem to have missed out putting anything up, apart from a couple of updates of an airworthiness nature one of which, Cameron Service Bulletin SB25, affects owners of Lindstrand Titanium Cylinders and has already caused a bit of a furore, more in the latest News 26.06.2017. The last time we scribbled was during Amazing April which, as it happened, was. Sadly we leap-frogged Magical May and now are just catching the end of Jolly June which has been full of stuff including John going away for nigh-on four weeks but he is back now and we are pretty busy to be honest.

Welcome 03.04.17

March was truly Marvellous and now we are in Amazing April and its sunny, the leaves are all a-bursting from the buds and the Yellow Brimstones are a-flitting about. Love it. Apologies if you have been telephoning or emailing and haven’t had a response last week only we were walking, like you do. Yes we are all back safe and sound from our epic (for me!) walk to Avebury. It nearly didn’t happen for Polly as she managed to lose a back claw on the Friday which we didn’t discover until Saturday! Come Monday she clearly wasn’t up to it but did come and see us off. She did join us on Tuesday and went from Cadsden to Avebury and was truly fantastic. We reckon we did 90 miles and she probably did 150![more …]

Welcome 06.03.17

Well, there you go, be amazed, doesn’t seem like a month has passed since we last put pen to tip tap pad. By the time this gets finished though it probably will be! Seager mentioned, the other day, that, we don’t use enough commas so, best I use a pile up early on, just to keep him happy. Jolly January came and went and now fantastic February has passed into recent history and we are facing Marvellous March. My resolve in this being a fine year remains undimished, or undiminished, whatever. For those turning up for the first time, you are most welcome and we hope you have a pleasant and hopefully cheery visit (forgot the commas there then!). [more …]

Welcome 03.02.17

Be amazed, nearly got this up on time. Been a bit hickledepickledly of late. Need more daylight I reckon. A very warm welcome to you and thanks for checking out the site. Hopefully there should be some fresh stuff up (see paragraph two!). We have had a short burst of busyness recently but mainly it is the still the quiet time of the year for us which means other stuff should get done. Sadly we managed not to get to the Icicle, the Black Horse AGM or the London Region meeting to see Rob Bayly’s brilliant talk and slide show on ballooning over London on account of Jane’s dad and carers but all is now pretty much sorted and we did get to the Chiltern Region social in Lavenden which was very well attended and the grub very good.
