Missed the solar eclipse today, because of cloud, a bit of a warning to drivers, and a fire.

Hey peeps, Thursday is here.

Only tomorrow to go after today then its the weekend.

I’m really gutted though, today should have been a day we see a solar eclipse, only partial in the UK and Europe though but still an amazing thing to see.

It’s been too cloudy to see, so really gutted. I think everyone knows what an eclipse looks like, but for those who don’t know it’s when the moon passed between the earth and the sun.

The moon covers the sun so partially block it. Or if it’s a total eclipse you would just see a ring around the moon.

So yeah we missed this beautiful thing that happens about twice a year if your in the right places.

It is just another amazing beautiful thing the solar system or universe provides for us.

The next one will be november 2021so hopefully the sky will be more clear. Anyone who actually captured it with clear skies please send me pictures and videos so I can post in a future blog.

I love stuff like that it just looks amazing. What do you peeps think of solar eclipses?

Yesterday at work was a tough one, we had a truck towed in the day before because the back wheels had come off on the motorway. I didn’t get too many pictures but this is what it looked like under the truck.

I had to change the hub and the wheels had obviously been loose for quiet some time. This is why drivers walk round checks are required every single day. Also why torquing up the wheel nuts after wheels have been removed is very important, and also why the drivers need to get them torqued up very soon after picking up the truck.

We don’t know the full reason why the wheels were loose, but it’s damn obvious the driver hadn’t been doing his walk round checks, the evidence shows the wheels were loose for a while. You can tell because the hub was worn way too much.

It’s frustrating because these trucks can get fucking heavy, and if something goes wrong then it peoples lives being put at risk. If your a driver just think about this. If your truck fails to stop and you manage to hit a car, you probably won’t feel it but the family in that car could end up dieing.

Yes it sounds brutal but shit that’s the only way to get things through these days.

Your truck is going 90km/h thats like 56mph. Maximum speed limit of a truck, for a damn good reason. Even at 56mph your driving a bloody missile, loaded or not.

I love my job but I see some damn stupid shit sometimes. It’s scary it really is.

So please if your a driver of any kind just spend 15 minutes checking over your vehicle. It could save a life.

Anyway here’s a little something to lighten the mood, the Robin’s have flown the nest, I couldn’t get amymore pictures but I’m awaiting a video off one the parts lads of the Robin’s calling for some food so hopefully that’ll get on soon.

Also just something to make you smile.

Hopefully you smile, I’ve also finished watching S.W.A.T the series, so I’ll do a review later.

I watched the new spiderman-far from home, review that later too.

Also the day before yesterday, there was smoke coming from close by at work, after work the firemen has got it under control, obviously being a nosey fucker I went to investigate, turns out it was the scrap yard near work that had a fire (not mentioning the name of the company), I’m not sure what caused it but they have had quiet a few over the years. Usually because a car has fuel left inside the tank and it ignites.

Anyway I hope you have an awesome acternoon peeps, and think about the weekend.
