so I just don't see the comparison.
Thats why I said "not that big"
Little known fact, coherent thought can destructively interfere with itself leaving no thought at all, that’s why I prefer incoherent thought.

800 lumins, isn't that about 60watts equiv??. how many do you use???
8 or so, one over each kennel The dividers between each one means that you get too many shadows if they are not individually lit.

Not having a go at you! What I hate is how they say that something is a 500W halogen equivalent when it patently isn't...

To get 10,000lm from a LED floodlight is expensive...

One could say that the message to be gained was that several smaller lights may be better than one big bugger ?

I can't access my Photobucket photos now. :(

I'm not sure if anyone else can, ie where I have linked to on web sites, forums etc.

I was going to put this in Jokes, but it's actually a stock advertising photo... presumably for cold joints...

Shame. He smoked like a chimney.

I have all his Quad kit here. ESLs, 405-2, 44 etc. All thick with nicotine, coffee stains and cat claw marks... Basically, disgusting.

It's all in the "to be restored when I'm not using PPE for something more important" pile...

Yep me too - what a silly bunt!
Philosophers have only interpreted the world - the point, however, is to change it. No it isn't ... maybe we should leave it alone for a while.

I've had a cold all week, but it's nearly gone, so our holiday at Potters starting tomorrow should be still on.

I do regular home Covid tests, all been negative so far.

At the moment it's pouring with rain, and thunder in the distance.

Nice day out today celebrating our ruby wedding anniversary.
Elevenses, at the Hidden Monkey tea room in Malton, fish and chips in Filey, then an ice cream cone with a chocolate flake stuck in it, from Lucy’s Beach Shack, Cayton Bay, plus a walk along Cayton beach, watching the surfers, paragliders and the antics of a large variety of pooches.

Ah those simple pleasures. :)

Spent all of yesterday with SWMBO on a whole day foraging & feasting course on the North Kent coast (Faversham salt marshes & hedgerows, Herne Bay & Reculver beaches). Totally fantastic day & really really excellent instructor (Fergus Drennan) - day ended about 22:30 after cooking our afternoon collections (different deep-fried seaweeds, samphire, fish, home-made pakoras, mushrooms..) on the beach (lunch was the morning's pickings). Small group - only 7 of us on a 14-hour intensive day. Highly recommended. Food was excellent, especially as it was all foraged.

Doing the fungus id course next.
