maybe the light house keeping gene is attached to the alchoholic gene????

I've always wanted to tend a lighthouse in Kanas...

Course the South African lighthouses are technically far superior to our Scottish ones.

Far more which we need to wind up with ours !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So fizzy...on a light house these days is it just one big giant bulb in it or is it a whole bunch of little ones put together?

And how many scotsmen does it take to change all those lightbulbs????

Depends Nands, some have 4 lights all powered by a 10000w bulb, these bulbs are very expensive though and a more popular method is for the house to have 100 bulbs on each side, that is very time consuming though as if one goes its a bugger to find which one to replace.

Few more years though and everyone will be on to the modern lazor fiesta XR2 lights which can be fitted, worked remotely and have a lifespan of 25 years.

I can normally change the bulbs on me own, but I prefer if somebody is there to hold the ladder.

My grandad had to light candles. That's where those torches with the light of a million candles come from - it's also why he drank, lol!!

Nowsadays its not glass Nands, gets too hot you see.

Its a special type of plastic ( cp3o) which we import from Norway which we use, its got a special coating which magnifies the light as well.

Well thats enough boring chat about my work for one night, I'm off to bed.

So we look forward to the "K's" tomorrow. What about something on kilts?!

I'm off to bed. Fizzy, don't let us down. We wait with bated breath. (how does one bate one's breath anyway? - I'll have to wait till Fizzy get's to the B's for that one)
