  1. I don't think it's last century at all Maggie. The wealth and possessions of individual people are now known to the nth degree due to the cyber boom, advances in tracking algorithms, and the shady interests of governments, banks, and big business in general.

  2. Yes, it's particularly bad along there Chris and I feel sorry for the pedestrians at times when cars can't decide whether to take the left-hand hump or the middle-hump and suddenly end up swerving towards the pavement. These may be classed as 'traffic-calming' measures, but they do nothing for the calm of the pedestrians!

    I've seen the work done on the potholes and, while it's to be commended, I fail to see the logic in fixing a pothole and ignoring another one mere feet away, as has been done along the cemetery road.

  3. Er,......... 'Selective'  potholes have been fixed. :D

    Anyway, it's not just the craters, it's those mountainous speed bumps too,  with the sharp edges and deep valley's either side. Sometimes I have to put down my mobile phone and fasten my seatbelt, then hang onto the steering wheel for dear &gn=hvc*hjk...

    .. life!  Sorry, another bloody bump. Grrr!

    His man-servant tells me that he may well come with a feathrlite rear protection mat in situ though he may equally well come without. He assures me, however, that with or without protection his performance is always the same. I have to confess, though, that at my age accidental spillage is not a problem.

    Three or four inches, I agree, can make all the difference when entering from the rear but a false bottom can be purchased at very little cost. I don’t see it as a problem.

    Do you know if his clothing is easily removable?


    A word of advice CL ......


    You really need to be looking at his consumption and his emissions (linked, no doubt!). Also, have a close look at his spare tyre and whether it's underslung or not. Whip out his dipstick and check for debris before giving it a wipe and plunging it back in.

  5. US opens investigation into Tesla after fatal crash


    US authorities are investigating the first death potentially caused by self-driving technology.

    The driver of a Tesla car died in Florida in May after colliding with a lorry.

    Under scrutiny is Tesla's Autopilot feature, which automatically changes lanes and reacts to traffic.

    In a statement, Tesla said it appeared the Model S car was unable to recognise "the white side of the tractor trailer against a brightly lit sky" that had driven across the car's path.

    The company said the crash was a "tragic loss".

    The collision led to the death of Tesla driver Joshua Brown, 40. The driver of the truck, which was pulling a trailer, was unhurt.

    A video on YouTube, which appears to have been posted by Mr Brown, shows a dashboard camera recording of a previous incident, with the car steering to avoid a lorry in the next lane.

    He wrote: "Tesla Model S autopilot saved the car autonomously from a side collision from a boom lift truck.

    "Hands down the best car I have ever owned and use it to its full extent. It has done many, many amazing things, but this was one of the more interesting things caught on the dashcam."



  6. Afraid I can't help you here CL. The most important items seem to be missing from the Tech Specs, such as the number and location of the cup-holders. Yet I imagine it would still be a good buy. (See what I did there! :D ).

  7. Until someone comes up with a way of convicing those of Islamic persuasion that there aren't 72 virgins awaiting them post-BOOM, then we'll just have to accept things as they are. Without the promise of an Afterlife, most of the world's religions would crumble to dust and we'd be better for it. 

  8. Good advice CL, but there's no way I'd cut the cannabis production for sprouts, but you've given me another idea ...

    When cooking sprouts, it's common procedure to cut a 'cross' shape in the stalk to aid cooking. Now then, if I inserted an amount of cannabis into the 'cross' and then cooked them I would be able to start up a mobile Sunday Dinners service that would be the envy of the country! A similar tactic got Coca Cola off the ground, so why shouldn't it work for me?

  9. Bah! Article ... Shmarticle! That button will never be pressed! Not by the tossers we have in power these days anyway.


    No, it's ok, I'll grow my own sprouts thanks. Monsanto have some great varieties out now. Could do with a bit more sunshine though, those chemtrails don't half get in the way. Will the EU place a cap on my sprout production I wonder? I might end up throwing 2/3 of them away! :D

  10. CL, you're assumption is that 619,344 Muslim women will need to produce offspring for 80 years. This is not true, as the offspring of these women will also produce in later years, as will their offspring, ...

    The white UK population are in decline, with a birthrate below that required to sustain the population, while the Muslim population, with a birthrate of around 3, are multiplying rapidly.

    Anyhow, it's not just about numbers, it's about the ages of the population as a whole, and pretty soon there will be a vast increase in the number of young Muslim VOTERS that will determine the direction taken by our government. Also, with lots of healthy (thanks, NHS) young Muslims able to put up a good fight, we will have a hard time defending ourselves against them.

  11. Agreed, we all 'breed' in the UK, but it's the birth 'rate' that matters, as any mathematician knows. Muslims have a much higher birth rate than the rest of the UK, who are following an ever-decreasing path with a birthrate less than the 2.1 statistically needed to stop the population becoming extinct. So, the maths are there, they just need interpreting correctly.

    Which brings me to another point, which is; why is there not more support for single parent families instead of downcasting them? They are the ones helping to keep our population afloat.

    VERY warm reception in Brussels from EU chief after her Brexit talks - but Spain vows to veto Scottish membership before negotiations can even begin. 

    That's from MailOnline. Sturgeon is about to find out exactly why she's beating her head against a wall due to this right of veto, and exactly why Leavers wanted OUT!
