Simon Coggins has been living in a research station in Antarctica since November 2003. Today he wrote about a Midwinters Day celebration he and his colleagues held. They gave each other some wonderful handmade gifts.
I received an incredible working steam engine, made by Jamie our plumber, which was not only spectacular to watch in action but a work of art too. I made a brass weather vane for Steve which powered a moving figure digging the melt tank. It took a lot of polishing but I'm pleased with the result!Link (thanks, Tom!)
