  1. Morning all and happy Easter weekend http:////nwforum.r.worldssl.net/forum//public/style_emoticons/default/angel.gif I'm making the most of the dry bit of the long weekend here in MK and enjoying the blossom and lovely spring weather today and tomorrow.... ....hopefully by going up to Liverpool Sunday and Monday I will be missing the worst of the rain - seems like the weekend is very much a game of two halves.... http://www.netweather.tv/index.cgi?action=news;storyid=5825;sess=
  2. Easter bank holiday not looking egg-cellent then, oh well at least the chocolate won't melt ! http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/bank-holiday-weather-bookies-slash-3417300 ... Just as well Mr P and I are heading North West for the second half of the weekend :-)
  3. I'm beginning to think there is a cover up of some sort here - it just doesn't make sense that nothing has been found .... Unless of course they are looking in the wrong place .... ...in which case we will never find out the truth !

  5. Splendid day here today, really nice warm sunshine and lots of people out and about enjoying the Easter holidays which is good... Another chilly night and frosty morning tomorrow by the looks of it ....
  6. Malaysia's Acting Transport Minister has dismissed suggestions from a newspaper that the American Central Intelligence Agency was involved in the disappearance of Flight MH370. Hishammuddin told reporters: "At the end of the day, if their report is false, they will lose credibility. "What if the MH370 tragedy had been arranged by certain parties to put Malaysia's relationship with China in jeopardy?" Hishammuddin's statement also comes after a a US author claimed the CIA knows exactly what happened to MH370. In an interview with Iran's Press TV, Dr Kevin Barrett said: "The CIA base in Alice Springs Australia knows precisely what happened to that plane. "And it is interesting the Malaysian government has asked them and they are not getting any response." "There is obviously a cover-up. "It is something very strange that has happened to this plane." http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news/mh370-conspiracy-malaysia-dismisses-cia-3411539#ixzz2ywCis7V1 Well I certainly agree with the last bit !
  7. Morning all, Nice to see some regional regulars back posing in this thread again, great photos too I’ve also been taking a bit of a break from NW and enjoying the fine weather and the Easter holidays Woke up to a very bright and sunny morning here with a light frost on the roof of the car - certainly a bit nippy out there for some of us first thing....
  8. Evening all, I'm so glad it stayed dry here, I had a very productive morning with two lines of washing, bathed dogs and cleaned the kitchen - then had a pamper afternoon to relax with a nice facial and back massage - I feel exhausted now though so an early night for me and a nice walk and Sunday roast to look forward to tomorrow hopefully !
  9. Morning all, Lovely sunny one here so making the most of it as I'm working this afternoon and evening - no POETS day for me - might be going out for a drink tonight though .....if I can keep awake !
  10. Why has this only just been mentioned when it happened in August 2012 and are they trying to say this might have happened to flight MH370 ? Malaysia Airlines jumbo jet had to return to Heathrow - and all black box cockpit voice recorder data was lostA Malaysia Airlines jumbo jet had to return to Heathrow due to engine trouble - and all black box cockpit voice recorder data was lost, it has emerged. As the hunt for missing flight MH370 continues, UK air accident investigators have revealed an earlier serious incident involving the same airline. The Boeing 747 had to return to the west London airport after significant vibration was noted on one of the engines shortly after departure for Kuala Lumpur, said the report by the Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB). During the approach to land back at Heathrow, all three autopilots disengaged, the cockpit displays and lights flickered and a series of fault messages were displayed. There was a subsequent loss of power to some systems but the captain, with 340 passengers and 22 crew aboard, managed to make a safe landing at 11.20pm on August 17 2012. The jumbo jet had a cockpit voice recorder (CVR) - a device which can record the last two hours of cockpit conversations. The AAIB, which classed the incident as "serious" in its report today, said the CVR continued to run for some time after the aircraft landed "and as a result all relevant CVR recordings were lost". The AAIB said: "The investigation determined that the operator's procedures for the preservation of flight recording was not sufficiently robust to ensure that recordings would be preserved in a timely manner following an incident or accident." The report said that Malaysia Airlines had "expressed willingness to address this issue" and updated its procedures. The AAIB said there had been a series of failures within the aircraft's electrical system. http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/malaysia-airlines-jumbo-jet-return-3395734
  11. Afternoon all, Another reasonable day here after a chilly start - so far the Easter holidays are going well
  12. Are we dead yet ? http://www.independent.co.uk/news/science/what-is-a-blood-moon-and-other-questions-about-the-upcoming-apocalypse-9246002.html
  13. Here comes that squall line spreading eastward...... Anyone to the east of this line may get some torrential downpours, gusty winds and even the odd rumble or two of thunder, you will certainly know about it if you're caught out in it. Across the South East heavy rain continues with some torrential downpours in places.
  14. That cluster of thunderstorms over Normandy will move NE through Channel to SE England so it's worth watching the progress on the Netweather radar... A storm forecast has been issued for today until tomorrow morning with a risk of squall lines forming with strong winds, torrential rain, hail and possible funnel clouds. http://www.netweather.tv/index.cgi?action=convective%3Bsess%3D
  15. Morning all, I'm feeling exhausted after a rather sporty weekend - I galloped round Aintree on Saturday and then did 59 laps round Bahrain International Circuit closely followed by rowing 4 miles down the river Thames yesterday Weather-wise it’s pretty miserable here today, grey and wet and not very nice at all, maybe it’s just as well I'm working! There is a chance of something thundery in the heavier pulse of rain expected later this afternoon…. ESTOFEX level 1 for parts of SE Englandhttp://www.estofex.org/cgi-bin/polygon/showforecast.cgi?text=yes&fcstfile=2014040806_201404062125_1_stormforecast.xml
  16. Could this ‘pulse signal’ be a breakthrough at last …. It’s certainly a glimmer of hope after the previous searches have found nothing but rubbish rather than debris from the aircraft floating on the southern Indian Ocean waters. The Chinese ship Haixun 01 has said that the signal it’s black box detector picked up has a frequency of 37.5kHz per second, which is the type that the aircraft’s black box would send out but they have not established whether the signal was related to the missing jet, but if it isn’t from flight MH370 then what else could it be ? As there is no immediate evidence that the signal is linked to the missing jet the Australian government agency co-ordinating the search would not comment on the report which I suppose is fair enough as they obviously don’t want to raise false hope – but if they have found something and it leads to some answers it would be great after all this time!
  17. Afternoon all, No lovely walkies for me today, I've been busy working but my weekend has just started so I intend to enjoy what's left of it and hopefully my now nice clean shiny car (thanks to Master D - it did cost me a pair of football shorts and a top though) will stay dust free ! It seems to have clouded over here and the wind picked up to what is was earlier so I think I've missed the best of the day weather wise but there is still the wine and chocolates
  18. (N)Ice Quiz for you all here .... ...what is the coldest part of an ice sheet? A. The base B. The middle C. The surface D. It's roughly the same temperature throughout. Find the answer in the Know Your Earth Frozen Poles quiz at http://climate.nasa.gov/interactives/frozen-poles-quiz/frozen-poles-quiz I managed to score 10/10 (thanks to a couple of lucky guesses) ...which makes me a scientist
  19. I tend to agree with Mike's theory above but what ever happened on board this flight It would be nice to think the underwater searches that began today will find something. I'm not sure if Anwar Ibrahim has a point here or just an axe to grid with the government.... interesting that he is 'friends' with Zaharie Ahmad Shah (the pilot) though - I can't help but wonder just how friendly they might have been ! Malaysia's opposition leader last night accused the country’s government of deliberately concealing information about missing flight MH370. Anwar Ibrahim, 66, said it was impossible that the Boeing 777 would not have been tracked by Malaysia’s radar system after it changed course. He said: “Unfortunately the manner in which this was handled after the first few days was clearly suspect. “One fact remains. Clearly information critical to our understanding is deemed missing. “I believe the government knows more than us. “They are privy to most of these missing bits of information critical to our understanding of this mysterious disappearance of MH370.†Mr Ibrahim, a former deputy prime minister of Malaysia until he fell out with the country’s leaders, is the head of an opposition coalition of pro-democracy parties. One of his most fanatical supporters - and friends - was the pilot of the missing plane, Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah. Mr Ibrahim said he had authorised the installation of ‘one of the most sophisticated radar’ systems in the world covering Malaysia’s east and west coastlines when he was finance minister in 1994. He claimed it was ‘baffling’ that the country’s air force had remained silent, adding: “It should take three minutes under the standard operating procedure for the air force planes to go. “And there was no response. We don’t have the sophistication of the United States or Britain but we still have the capacity to protect our borders.†Mr Ibrahim added that the families of the 153 Chinese victims on board were correct to demand information from the Malaysian government. He said: “Why didn’t we alert the Chinese, the Vietnamese that the operation should cease in the South China Sea and let them spend millions on search and rescue in a place that they know fairly well cannot be the site of the plane?†A source close to the government said: “The international media response, completely condemning Malaysia, is unfair. It’s been partly orchestrated by Malaysia’s opposition. “The government has a duty to the families not to release uncorroborated information that leads to false hope or wild goose chases which hamper the investigation. “At every step, international investigation protocols have been followed.†Mr Ibrahim was convicted of sodomy - an offence in Malaysia - for the third time hours before the flight went missing and is currently on bail pending appeal. http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news/missing-malaysia-airline-flight-underwater-3363884
