Interstellar

We're hoping for a day soon when the weather is good enough for us to take Kantara out for one more short trip before the winter. The skin tank (part of the engine cooling system) has air in it, and the only way to get that out is to open the cap when the engine is fully hot (and both thermostats are therefore open). The coolant water will then completely fill the skin tank, and I'll fill the system from the radiator cap. We don't need fine weather for this, but it would be nice not to get too wet!

Colin came this morning to do the annual service - well, the bits of it that I'd rather not do myself, anyway. And we're expecting a visit from Pete of Harris Hoods (NOT, one hopes, a bunch of crooks!) to agree a specification for a new cratch cover, and to measure up for one to be made, price allowing.

Yesterday, we went to see "Interstellar". IMDb gives it an astonishingly high rating (for IMDb) of 9.1 out of 10, from 127,577 users, so it had to be worth seeing. Surprisingly, it's only been made in 2D. It would have benefitted a lot from 3D, we think. It was tediously long at 169 minutes.
"A group of explorers use a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer an interstellar endeavor."

It didn't live up to expectations for me. At least the ice-cream was delicious, though!
