So where are you putting the christmas tree?  :)
Working for a large corporation that positively goes in for positive discrimination, we are not allowed Christmas Trees for fear of upsetting other religions and beliefs.

Now I personally don't believe anyone could have negotiated a significantly better deal, and everyone knows the reasons why.

But by delaying the vote, she is now toast.  She should have gone through with it, and that would have added some credence to her going back with the begging cap.

The majority voted to leave and leave we must.
We've found something we both agree on about the whole shitopps.

Now, with 3.5 months to run, we have to decide how.  And that's going to be contentious.

I had to let Mr Angry out to play this morning.  It was a necessary evil to focus some minds to stop wanking about with irrevelant sideshows and dealing with the real issues in hand.

But they are all from Ipswich, so I expect their focus to be shortlived.

I have been thinking about the internet recently and weighing up the good and bad things about it. I have decided on balance that overall it probably hasn't been a good thing for humanity and we were probably better off before we had it.  :)
Tin hat on.  ;D
I do feel that social media, particularly things along the lines of Arsebook and Twotter, are the cancer of modern society.

Given the amount of damage and hassle I've had updating the satnav in mine, I'm not the best person to advise ;D

Discovered that the wheel couldn't be repaired. Bugger.

Discovered a new one is £650. Bugger.

Discovered, even with discounts, a new one is still £540. Bugger.


Permission to say bugger?

Found the Battlebus, and brought it back here, seeing as the Black Pussy is off the road for a bit.

Whilst walking to find it, I saw a chavved up Omega being driven impressively as it came off a roundabout with a small bit of slide, and accelerated like a scaulded cat.  Then I released in was my Omega ::)

Because there arenít many mechanics these days, just fitters.  ::)


And they're expected to diagnose and repair increasingly complex systems too - carburettors and distributor ignitions are simple and so are their faults. That is not true of modern inter-connected electronics
Fully managed engine systems are easy as well. Probably more so than carbs and dizzy timing.  Its a different type of skill though, one that many old school cant deal with.

A bit like telecomms. I used to drive around in my little van taking people's telephones to bits to fix them. Then someone had the bright idea of plugging them into a socket and sending a new one out in the post.
Can't beat restrapping a 746 to get it to work as a Plan 107 extension. Or, in the middle of Martins Newsagents, crawling around the floor looking for all the springs and contacts that had shot everywhere after I popped the top of an HES4
