  • Through the eyes of a fresh young driver at the time, that was still magical!! 😀😋 You’re right though – it didn’t last, and the race for more bhp began!!

  • Didn’t you start out with an old escort van?? Maybe life has gone full circle and you now need a van as well as the family car?? Can you write a van off ( tax-wise ) against the pub??

    When we started out on the stall we had an old Nissan Prairie with the back bench seat removed – there wasn’t much we couldn’t carry!! Or have you considered a trailer??

    Hi Ed, – yeah, that was in the back of my mind when I wrote that, and I’ve seen the UK Border Patrol programmes on TV where the suspects have destroyed their passports in order to make it difficult to remove them, I’ve also seen the documentaries that state refugees have rights in the first country they reach – well my question is “How come vast…[Read more]

  • I’ve been catching up on a load of small DIY jobs while the number of dogs has been quiet.

    Hanging a few pictures on walls, bamboo blinds in the conservatory ** to keep it cooler over the heatwave, re-wiring a ceiling fan in the bedroom taking it out of the lighting loop it had been in and running it directly off a junction box, fitting a 13A…[Read more]

  • Coming up on Tuesday next week, on ITV, a documentary with cameras following pilots being trained to fly the F35 Lightning in Wales and America.

    Should be interesting as to whether they recognise/admit to its’ shortcomings or go off on a promotional blurb about how wonderful it is!!

  • Glad the site is back up and running – Thanks Lee in advance. Spent a boring morning!!

    It was intended to summarise the fact that everything is provided for you, and whilst, not being nice, compares favourably to prisons in some foreign parts, Turkey, Mexico, Romania, possibly Russia et al.

    The press is the press is the press it seems and has been for some time now.

    It does seem that the solution swings from one extreme to the other, but ” the societal solution” is patently not working and hasn’t been for decades, even before the police were shackled by cuts and other impediments to do their job as they would want.

    The solution…[Read more]

    Not disagreeing, but adding context, Dave, the last public hangings were in 1868 – in those days you either stole food or starved. A life of crime wasn’t a lifestyle choice for the lazy b*stards like it is today. You didn’t steal to support a drug habit ( well heroin was around, but not to the same extent across all classes, ) you stole to…[Read more]

    I just wish that every Prime Minister or Chancellor that fanfares the amount they are giving to the NHS, Education and Policing would stop the Christmas present style fanfare announcements and say that they’re restoring the amount they’ve withheld over the last 10 years and they’re sorry they got it wrong!!!

    I shan’t hold my breath.

    “Care in the community” was the catchphrase at the time – the bones of a good idea ( for some, not all ) to deal with mental health.
    Unfortunately, the lunatic asylums were a prime target for ( supporters of the government at the time ) developers, and when they were closed, the grounds and buildings became housing estates and apartments. Huge…[Read more]

    The EU themselves aren’t devoid of blame in this situation. Had they been more accommodating over the years when the UK needed either a concession or a relaxation of something, as opposed to just an agreement, then the outcome of the referendum may have been different.

    The last PM to come back from Brussels with anything meaningful was Maggie. A…[Read more]

    Mobiles work nicely here ( just 5 miles outside Margate ) and they still accept coins and folding stuff, but we are also up to date with lots of new ways of parting tourists from their hard-earned!!😀😀🙃

    Joking aside, hope you enjoy the sights – we take them all for granted. Where are you hoping to look at, Turner Contemporary, Dreamland, or just…[Read more]

    I only use my aol account to check the junk mail folder once a month for any accidental diverts. I gave up on it when oath took over and I didn’t like the look of their terms .

    I’ve just accessed my account and could read the inbox ok and forwarded them to my gmail account, ( that’s normally automatically done, so something is up there, ) and…[Read more]

    If the second comes about, ( both are actually likely scenarios )  he’ll need to give a monkey’s about the first.

    Maybe the “backwards compatibility” they espouse, qualifies you with regards to updates, ie, anything to update W2007 gets sent to users of 2000!!
