Wondering what to do this summer?

Just need to get away from it all then why not charter the luxury Motor Yacht Princess Mariana she has six decks. This modern and stylish yacht is full of modern innovative features and can accommodate 12 permanent guests on board.

One of the most impressive features on board Princess Mariana is the Beach Club is a dry dock for the custom built tender which can be “flooded” when the tender is outside and forms a 12 metre swimming pool with underwater lighting and steps.

There is also a helipad on board – and when the helicopter has left, it becomes a golf driving range with a massive screen showing a host of well-known courses.

The decks on board Princess Mariana are extremely spacious and there are plenty of dining opportunities to choose from. One level up from the bridge deck is the party deck with two bars, casual seating areas, a raised dance floor, a grand piano, three cinema screens, a barbeque, sun beds and a spa pool! There is a cinema on the main deck with seating for 13 guests.

It makes you wonder what next this crazy world is going to thow up …

Easy Still… “Ma Pa break out the shine”…

No cooling tubes or noisy running water in the plumbing. Thermometers and thermostats are not needed; this unit is designed for the production of alcohol.

All you need to do is add 4 liters of mash or wine to the unit and plug it. The machine warms up in one hour, and the process of distillation takes place in 3 hours. So in 4 hours you can have 1.4 liter of 46% alcohol. If you want a much more pure alcohol, all you have to do is re-distill the outcome of the first batch, and the result will be an alcohol with the 88% of purity.


A simple 3 step Life Hack…

There are many “Life Hacks” out there but noticed thsi one the other day and thought it worth a post…

“Besides the noble art of getting things done,
there is the noble art of leaving things undone.
The wisdom of life consists in the elimination of non-essentials.”
– Lyn Yutang

  1. Figure out what is important to you. – The 80/20 rule suggests that only 20% of your daily activities are actually important.  The other 80% are mostly excess time wasters of far less importance.  The key to success rests in being able to distinguish between the two.
  2. Eliminate the excess. – What is cluttering your life?  What don’t you use on a regular basis?  Throw it all away.  What extra steps are you taking that don’t directly support your goals?  Remove them from your routine.  If it does not help you move forward, it isn’t worth doing.
  3. Focus all your energy on the outcome of step #1. – After completing steps 1 and 2 you will be equipped with a clear vision of what is truly important.  All you have to do now is focus your efforts accordingly.  If done right, you will actually notice yourself doing less and accomplishing more.

Not sure if I will get past the first step but here goes 🙂

What’s the Weather? Supercomputers to predict @ town level..

In the light of the current weather extremes that we have been experiencing here in the UK and the rest of the world the following article caught my eye it seems  new supercomputers will be able to give a more detailed and accurate forecast (lets hope so been a little hit and miss at the moment – plus thought we had town level at the moment ). Currently, accurate forecasts are limited to county-sized areas; but a supercomputer to be introduced at the Met Office will give much finer detail.
