There is medical evidence that we have a finite number of heartbeats in our lives, so faster/more heart beats shorter lives.

Possibly your body is saving up the missing beats to let you live a little longer  :D

Thanks all. :thumbsup:

Ive done some calculations and can confidently  :worried: predict that at current resting heart rate I will now live until Im 104. This is unless I die of any one of 17,265 (approx) other conditions or causes in the meantime. :D

Photos from the Lincoln Model Railway Exhibition Ive just returned from will be posted later. May be poor quality Im afraid as my phone camera is pretty naff.

So you might see the Class 23. :D
We are indebted to those soldiers who served with courage and distinction to bring peace to Northern Ireland, UK Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson said. The welfare of our former service personnel is of the utmost importance.

I've also heard that everyone has a finite number of heart beats, so look on the bright side, you now have some extras to add on at the end.

The recent strong winds ripped a section of aging felt off the shed roof, leaving the bare planks exposed. As it is on the far end of the far side of the  shed, it was invisible when approaching. Last night, I nipped out there to play trains do a bit of work and spotted a damp patch on the roof lining. The good news is that the water that had got in had been mainly diverted along the top of the insulation and only a little had reached the lining below and so no damage to either the lining or the layout  :claphappy: I re-felted it today.

Phew, Steve. Glad you nipped that in the bud.
Hope you used stout fixings on the felt as we're in for another 'hoolie' today, I believe. :uneasy:

I've always felt it was worth while using felt adhesive to glue down the felt to the roof as well as nailing around the edges.

It's not going anywhere at the moment! I may cover it with a single EPDM sheet when I have the time, the weather and the money. The trouble is that the three rarely coincide.
