It’s that time of year again. Beryl’s been hard at it in front of the oven. Let’s hope she remains calm under pressure and her feathers don’t get ruffled. Good luck to everyone taking part in the bake-off.
At 2.00pm yesterday, this butterfly valve was on our customer’s production line. The seal failed and the line went down. Our Production Team (partially viewed above, he’s shy!!….not!!) dropped everything and stayed late last night to strip it down.
We re-started work on it first thing and by 9.30 it was was curing and awaiting finishing.
Ready for dispatch and back with a very satisfied customer by 11.30.
Thanks to everyone involved who made it happen.
Following recent stories of a lively nightlife in Rio, Beryl decided to try one of the local tapas bars. Unfortunately, she forgot to take her purse (well where would she keep it?) and the Spanish Bouncer throws her on to the street.
Someone then suggested she should in future always keep a ‘flexible friend’ with her, but I’m not sure she has the right idea
To cap it all, she spent the rest of the evening chatting up the USA basketball team, but just gets dumped!!
Another good day for Team GB. The Hockey Women guaranteed a medal by beating The Black Sticks (sounds like an old Led Zeppelin song), Sailing’s Hannah Mills and Saskia Clark have been frustrated by a lack of wind or the wrong kind of wind or something, but will pick up Gold today whatever blows. And Charlie Hull made a solid start in the women’s golf.
Meanwhile, back at the Avian Olympics, Beryl has been investigating more ways to improve her flying skills.
Speed is of the essence here, but the flights are short, and this isn’t the kind of website that promotes a smack on the posterior with a table tennis bat. This guy is having waaaay to much fun.
Slightly longer journeys are achieved by the Water Polo Team. However, being launched from the deep end to the shallow end and back again wears thin after a while, and she really wasn’t keen on the fashion….those hats?!! Make you look like an anorexic Telly Tubby.
Now this is more like it. Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!
I heard a great stat this morning on #bbcolympicbreakfast ….If Jason Kenny and Laura Trot where a country, they would be 13th on the medal table this morning. But as we finally get another burst of summertime, Beryl takes to the beach for a bit of volleyball. She is determined to get airborne but I’m not sure if this is quite the answer.
It’s been such a hectic weekend of sport for Beryl that she neglected to fill you in on some of the key events that happened in Rio.
Golf was on the menu for the first time in 112 years. Former player turned commentator Beryla Sorenstam, tried to get a little too close to the action and scored a Birdie she hadn’t bargained for.

Meanwhile Orvilla Greenduck (Here shown in her away-kit of yellow with contrasting red piping), a distant relation, still labouring under the misapprehension that she could fly, has taken to trampolining to get airborne. Can she succeed?…’course she can!
