Proper Engineering?

I have re-engineered (or over engineered) the support for the warehouse building,





and road bridge!

Looks excellent to me and something a little different.
Well done that man.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Been happily bumbling along adding infrastructure, tunnel portals etc along with enjoying the sun, sea and garden.













And

suddenly

A

FORCED

STOP!



No I didn’t do it with a modelling knife, but in the kitchen and last night's supper almost contained a piece of my thumb!

Two things that I have to ask you all following my "Thumb" incident.
1 Are your anti tetanus jabs up to date?
2 Do you have access to a decent first aid kit?

Apparently, if you've had more than a certain number of jabs (I think it's 10, but I'm not sure) you don't need any more.  I passed that total long ago and was told that I had a lifetime's worth.  It's certainly worth having a good first aid kit in the house.

Not wishing to delve too deeply into this but from the ‘NHS Choices’ website that is only true if you are young enough to have been through the early years vaccination programme and then the number is 5. This applies to the UK but other countries have their own similar programmes. 

If like me you are somewhat older (b.1947) then I understand that a booster every 10 years is recommend for continuous cover.

So take advice with regard to your own personal circumstances, and cases of Tetanus (also called Lockjaw which sounds much more frightening) are rare in the UK.

In 2013 only 7 cases were reported (non fatal) and all of those were in the age range 35 to 82 years.

Anyway as usual I have gone totally  :offtopicsign:. Be careful out there.

No I always attack my avocados with a spoon, ‘twas prepping the ham for an omelette what did it!
