the last day of No 666 trolly bus route to Edgeware. 15min short on Talking Pictures channel. Bet that was a devil to get on. ::)

General Discussion Area / SWMBO is watching.....
« on: 28 November 2018, 19:16:14 »
.. an old film called Sapphire on Talking Pictures, made in 1959 and they just wouldn,t  get away now with the absolute racism that pervades through the whole dialogue of the film. Even makes me feel a bit uncomfortable. :o

Programme about Billy Monger, the young race driver who lost both his legs in a crash last year. Might be worth a look.

General Car Chat / VW Arteon

Saw one of these yesterday for the first time. Looked quite nice. Might be able to afford one in about 12 years time. If i,m still on the planet that is. :D

General Discussion Area / Bloodhound, the end?

Sorry can,t do linky but it,s on BBC teletext, science section, that they have run out of cash and the project could be wound up. Shame.

General Car Chat / Front indicators on newer cars
« on: 14 June 2018, 19:31:43 »
Haven,t been on the bike for over a week due to getting over a persistent stomach bug.(Aaah ;D). Anyway, back on today and either my eyes are getting worse or are modern lenses less visible in strong sunlight? Found when crossing over roads from a bike lane, (i always look, that,s how iv,e managed to reach 73 :)) that some of the said indicators are nearly invisible when the sun is straight on the front of the car. Anyone else noticed this?

General Discussion Area / Grisly but poetic justice
« on: 13 February 2018, 08:25:20 »
Just read on BBC teletext about a poacher in Kruger National Park in S. Africa. He was attacked by a pride of lions and was almost completely devoured. All that was left was his head and some bones. Sorry but can,t do linkys. Must be my gallows humour but i found this slightly amusing. Hopefully it will put other poachers off.

Just won by Mo Farah, don,t bother to watch now, too contrived for me.

General Car Chat / Insurance question
« on: 21 November 2017, 18:59:17 »
Thinking of putting mileage limit on next years policy, due in Jan. What happens if you get 10months into the year and you reach your policy limit? Or even go over it.  :-\  Advise please chaps. :y

General Car Chat / What a surprise, not.
« on: 17 November 2017, 09:27:21 »
Reading on Beeb ceefax this morning, (sorry no linky) that the number of cars with no VED has tripled since the abolition of the paper tax disc. Blimey, who would have thought it!  ::)  :D

General Car Chat / Changing wheels
« on: 22 October 2017, 16:11:44 »
Looked at a 55 plate Saab 9-3 estate today. It has 17" wheels but SWMBOs  aching bones don,t like a hard ride. Is it possible to use the 16" ones off my CDX Desmond? This is in case i have a catastrophic MOT in December.

General Discussion Area / Moronic shopkeepers

Biked up town today, still quite gusty at times but still some of the above insist on putting their advertising A boards out despite the weather. Was quite amusing watching some of them fly down the road, until someone got hit by one. Hope they sue the buggers. Saw the same thing a few weeks ago when a McDonalds sign toppled onto an elderly lady. When i went to help her she insisted that she was ok and at least a staff member came out to take it away.

General Discussion Area / Anyone else read about this?
« on: 12 October 2017, 22:08:56 »
Went on AOL to check my e-mails and a headline on their news site reports that the the Cumbre Vieja volcano on La Palma in the Canary Islands is sending out small tremors, been about 40 so far around 2.5 on the Richter scale. We all know how dodgy AOL and Huff Post are for their scaremongering. If it does go up big style then it could be very interesting to say the least. It was the subject of a documentary on the Beeb a while ago and if it collapses into the sea it would trigger a huge tsunami. Sorry i can,t do a link.

Omega Electrical and Audio Help / Sodding alarm
« on: 24 September 2017, 18:52:40 »
I,ve had my Desmond for over 4 years and had no problems with the alarm. Over the last few days the alarm goes of around 11pm. The neighbours must love me. ;D. It doesn,t do it every night either. I,ve only ever locked it by pressing the fob once so would pressing it twice help?
I,ve Please read the manual :D and don,t find it very clear for my poor old addled brain. Any ideas anyone?

General Discussion Area / Well done Chris
« on: 11 September 2017, 17:21:08 »
What an awesome feat by Chris Froome to win the Vuelta a Espana after winning the Tour de France. Also to be up there at the finish of yesterdays stage in Madrid fighting to maintain the green points jersey. His motivation must be fantastic. Well done again. :y
