Today I finally fixed the diverter valve in our boiler. Here's the offending piece... Got it out...

Today we visited the amazing Hollycombe Steam Collection. Fred Dibner would have loved this place. There is a fairground which is all driven by steam. Here are Karen and Lisa on the Golden Gallopers.... We went for a ride on Caledonia, an old slate mine engine.
Some of those rides are scarry...Great day out.
Lisa and Joe on the race cars. Hope they both steer the same way!
This engine drives the bioscope and steam organ. Check here to see Lisa dancing to the organ...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=81w6dck4oBM

Yet another trip to Wembley with Pompey. This time it's the FA Cup Final against Premiership Champions Chelsea. Pompey have no hope...or do they? Roland, Simon and Me believing the impossible....
The teams come out...The game kicks off and anything is possible.It feels like the end of an era, but what a five years. Two FA Cup finals, AC Milan at Fratton Park, beating Man Utd and Liverpool, magical trips to the Emirates and Old Trafford, having four players in the England team, sending Southampton down. Next year we'll be in the Championship playing Scunthorpe and Doncaster. Here's to the next purple patch!
The fans back in Emsworth....Play Up Pompey!
