Coke to clean your loo

Coke Can Clean Your Toilet in a Pinch

from Lifehacker by Gina Trapani

When your toilet’s got rings and lime scale stains and you’ve got no cleaning gear on hand, grab a can of Coke out of the fridge.

According to wikiHow, you can pour Coke into a dirty toilet and the carbonic, citric, and phosphoric acids in it will break down stains, especially if you can leave it overnight to do the work. (Soda water will work too, without all the sugary residue.) Be warned though: this technique won’t save you from the dreaded brushing of the bowl itself.

It’s snowing


First day back at work and it is snowing. Car tracks running up the curb all over the estate.

One car on the bypass had mounted the central barrier and was balanced on top. Two people at work put thier cars in the ditch.

A great day to start back to work.

Working on Sunday doing some VMWare migrations. Managed to get in just before the gates closed. Went straight to the cafe to get a piece of Gladis’s cake but she had not baked one this weekend. There was a very tame Robin in the garden.
Two Kingfishers, Snipe, Pied Wagtail.

College Lake

A quick trip to College Lake during lunch. New divide between the two areas the large lake seems untouched and the water level seems the same. On the side nearest the hides there are lots of earthworks and it looks a mess. However you can are what they are trying to achieve.
400 Canada Geese, 250 Lapwing, assorted ducks and 3 Snipe.
