Makes for "Classy reading"!
I wonder on what grounds they appealed?
Watching "Saving lives at sea" ref RNLI ATM.
I wonder if this will feature?

Human "variety" apparently knows NO bounds.
Ho (hum).  ::)

My wife is missing.
She went to rescue people from the flood yesterday and has not come home...

Sergeant at Police Station:
What is her height?

I'm not sure. A little over five-feet tall?


Don't know.

Color of eyes?

Sort of brown I think. Never really noticed.

Color of hair?

Changes a couple times a year.
Maybe dark brown now.
I can’t remember.

What was she wearing?

Could have been jeans or maybe a skirt or shorts. I don't know exactly.

What kind of car did she go in?

She actually went on my dirt bike...

As C W F Hamilton of New Zealand, (some like to think of him as the "father of the Marine Jet) found out whilst experimenting with early jet boats there was a dramatic increase in boat speed when the jet outlet was lifted out of the water and exited to atmosphere. Newton's laws action / reaction! (Some used to think the jet pushed on the water!!)
What I am getting to is where could a jet be fitted into a H C so it could exit to atmosphere?
