Still brrrrr here Julie, boiler still not playing! Engineer will be out in the next day or so. Was so going to try and force the tap with some pliers to open it but if that goes wrong then that would cause all manner of problems. Will leave that to the engineer and if he breaks it doing that then he will have to fix it!

Me and Duke on the tandem. ha ha! That would be a blast wouldn't it! The last few days here have been a bit milder but the biting cold will be back midweek again they say. Better have my boiler fixed by then!

With you on calling for spring Julie, not far away though! smile

Hi Margaret,

Thanks for posting this. I do not know if this person is on the site here or not, but if not then that would be great if you could point her towards us as you know how much support and help she will get here from all of us.

Glad you like them Kris! It is brrrrr here and my boiler has broken down, MAJOR GRRRRR to that! Freezing in here and I can't get the boiler to get the pressure up to fix it!  One of the taps seems stuck and won't let the water into the boiler which it needs to do right now. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for this Catherine!

Wow Darla, making the news over your way. Never thought it would do that! And yes, glad all were saved too but it looked very touch and go did it not.

I love Deadliest Catch Kris, watched it here for years! The Berring Sea is so rough is it not, much like our North Sea off Scotland's east coast but without the ice. I saw the first 7 years of DC I think but haven't seen it since.

I know our Lisa was a huge fan as well of DC and she went to one of thier conventions in Seattle where she had some pics taken of her and Sig and Edgar on the deck of the Northwestern that she put on her fb page. She talks about DC here -

Kris,

I agree with what Marion says, please do not think the worst here. I know that it can be hard not to do this sometimes but please do not, if that makes sense! Keeping everything crossed for you and Mark and loads of positive thought are heading your way as well.

Hugs,

Wow! This is amazing and glad to see that all were saved. No one should moan about the price of seafood after watching this video and seeing what fisherman go through to bring us seafood.
