- Jeff’s New Plantby Dave on September 8, 2020
I bought a new plant for Jeff’s house the other day.. It’s an Haworthia (I think).. Whatever.. Jeff LOVES it.. sits in it for hours and hours 😉 And has a bit of a nibble on it too! The Red tint is from his heatlamp, btw…… Click Here to Read More The post Jeff’s New Plant appeared first on Dave Winfield.
- Meet Jeff!by Dave on August 29, 2020
Dani mentioned in passing one day that she had been into a Garden Centre/Pet store (Olivers) and they had a very friendly and cool Bearded Dragon sitting on the counter. I happened to be driving past Olivers a couple of days later, and thought I’d pop in for a looksee, as I’ve always had a bit of a fascination with Reptiles, but had never taken the time to really check them out. Sadly, the adult Beardie had moved on the day before, but they had a whole tank full of Babies – and were they cute? Oh yeah! So, not content with two needy Golden Retrievers to occupy my time I left Olivers (Really nice people BTW) with a shiny new Reptile tank!… Click Here to Read More The post Meet Jeff! appeared first on Dave Winfield.

The day was a bit dismal, but the Hot Rods were Brilliant, as usual! I was testing a new 35mm lens, I think the pictures came out OK!… Click Here to Read More The post Hot Rods at West Beach again! appeared first on Dave Winfield.
- The Brooklands Complexby Dave on December 27, 2019
I’m sure that anyone who has followed Motor Racing for a while has heard of the Legendary Brooklands, the world’s first purpose-built ‘banked’ motor racing circuit, and also one of Britain’s first airfields. Brooklands has an amazing history, housing Britain’s largest aircraft manufacturers in the early 1900’s, providing invaluable support through the second World War, and producing aircraft up until the 1970’s Opened for Motor Racing in 1907, the track was the centre of British Motor Sport until 1939, when the last race was run. The complex is still open today, however, hosting Museums for British Motorsport and Aviation – even a great collection of London Buses and a Concorde! When the opportunity arose to spend a half day at Brooklands, you can bet I was excited! … Click Here to Read More The post The Brooklands Complex appeared first on Dave Winfield.
- 3D Printingby Dave on August 17, 2019
It’s been AGES since I posted anything here – life has been a bit hectic! Since my last post I’ve acquired a 3D Printer, and thought I’d share with you my first customised project. I’ve had a CCTV Board sitting on a cardboard eggbox for a couple years nows, as I wasn’t able to source a suitable case for it. Enter 3D Printer – problem solved! See the pictures at the bottom of the post. Anyway, the printer… I chose an AnyCubic Chiron, which has some pretty impressive specs – the Bed is 400x400mm, and it can print to a height of 450mm. It took me a few days to figure it all out – not assisted by some faulty original components, which I bypassed by pressing a Raspberry Pi into service loaded with the brilliant OctoPrint software.… Click Here to Read More The post 3D Printing appeared first on Dave Winfield.
- A Quick Visit to the National Motor Museum, Birdwood, South Australiaby Dave on June 2, 2019
I had to pop up to the National Motor Museum to do a little maintenance on a vehicle there, so of course I took my camera and had a look around to see what was new!
