    Pushing Your Weight Around.

    I lost 12 kg with Jenny Craig but had started putting it on again when I lost another 15 kg due to bowel cancer. I got over that and got an all clear from the doc but now I have started putting it on again. The best thing I can do is stay in my workshop all day working on car or motorbike projects then I forget to snack and also I am moving all the time getting down on the floor and under things and so on. Worst thing I can do is stay inside the house.

    Lower your MTOW

    On Friday I resolved to eat and drink healthy and exercise more. Sat urday and Sunday I did and felt great. Today I am camped by a lake and drank half a bottle of wine and ate a lot of cheese biscuits and a meat pie. I don’t understand why I can’t keep up the good lifestyle for more than a couple of days. Yesterday I could have sworn that I had turned it a round. Right now I am thinking of walking into town to the pub for a beer and dinner.

    CSIRO funding from government is way less than needed to employ the people and do the research. They depend on income from the technologies that they develop and from consultancy work for government and private industry.

    Shafs never mind him, what did you do? I recently paid several hundred dollars to a hypnotist and lost nothing except the dollars.

    Rotax 912

    I think it is all about rpm. My 15 l/hr was at 5000 rpm. I well expect 18-19 l/hr T 5200 rpm.

    Changes to Port Phillip Bay VFR lane

    So some will be going one way and others the opposite way. Sounds like fun on a busy route where people are rubbernecking the view.

    Changes to Port Phillip Bay VFR lane

    Westbound at 1500 feet? I hope everyone reads this document or I will be head on with someone who follows the VFR cruising altitude rules.

    Rotax 912

    I got 15 l/h over 250 hours in a Texan with 912ULS. Check Hobbs time vs tacho time and is there an air switch?

    Dawn Patrol

    Anyone who enjoys Sagittarius Rising will also enjoy Open Cockpit or No Parachute by Arthur Gould Lee. Lots of reason for more dawn patrols. But watch for the Hun in the sun.
