IMHX 2007, International Materials Handling Exhibition
remembering Mum at Marston Green station bus stops
here there was - 20 minutes wait - also like the bus a 30 minute interval service to the National Exhibition Centre at the next station Birmingham International
my left knee was still very sore after the day in London - to be blogged on Snaps One later today -and I made myself climb up to one of my favourite vantage points - this footbridge click to see aerial photograph and map
zoomed out map to see the end of the BHX airport runway
behind the tree below
poplar tree beginning to bud and make new leaves
local train to Birmingham and Walsall
oops clickd too soon - this Virgin train at high speed up towards London
back on the "Up Platform" (up to London) and I snapped the down express Virgin train to Birmingham and Wolverhampton - tiny bit too late
click here and look at this google map and you can see from the Birmingham International station bottom centre I walked up left to the exhibition in HALL 20 0 top corner in all a thousand meters along the corridors and stairs of the BNational Exhibition Centre
I wandered off track into the The Cleaning Show - Visitor Information:
"Pit your skills against the clock for a cash price and then against the world’s fastest window cleaner - Guinness Book of Records holder Terry Burrows.

I missed thta one
returning to IMHX 2007
DEXION a magical name - I remember when the Dexion slotted angle product came out - and I see that I was eleven years old Dexion - About Us - History: "Dexion started in the UK in 1947."
Simplicity itself, the new system consisted of shaped metal strips with regularly punched slots. These strips can be
bolted together to construct racks and shelving to fit almost any available space. The name for the new angle system sprang from the Greek word for ‘right’ – ‘dexion’. Also, from this sprang the now famous ‘circle and tick’ symbol used in the Dexion trademark.

made in Malaysia size 18.00 - 25 and it is logical to make the tyres where the raw rubber is tapped and to ship the finished product world wide
A HORRIBLE WEB SITE http://www.jcb.com/ WHICH HANGS IN MS IE 7 AND FIREFOX 1.5 and I had to site search in Google to get in to get at the above data

"World Unlimited Electric Water Speed Record Smashed
On November 1st 2005, 24 year old Helen Loney piloted ‘An Stradag’, Henry Engelens 15ft electrically powered hydroplane to a new World Unlimited Electric Water Speed Record average of 68.09mph.

Formula 1 racing car simulator and boys toys - the simulator driver with the slowest lap buys the beers on friday whenthe show closes
and afterwards I walked slowly out over the north car park
started at the bottom of the map NEC after leaving IHMX 2007
and walked northwards
crossed Bickenhill Parkway by this roundabout you can see on the map
skirted the wood on theleft
then crossed Blackfirs Lane - I wonder if that ever was Blackfriars like in London from a lost monastery.
hawthorn in blossom and birds singing map here
skirted the Business Park map
even saw the white scut of a rabbit running from me here on map
near the farm with the burny barn roof which you can see on this google map
to bus stop 97 in Chelmsley Road see the red tarmac on the map
I walked very slowly
but enjoyed th contact with nature
I got home too tired to blog the photos
and resisted a wish for fish, chips and beer - now blogging at sumrise before breakfast
