Just been out dogging, passed the local rugby club, and the mad frickers are out there playing with their odd shaped balls.

Its -1C, the ground is frozen and rock hard, and still has a snow scattering from this morning's flurry.

Do these guys have balls of steel?  Can you imagine the namby pamby, gay poofter premier league footballers playing in such conditions?
fixed that for you  :y

Your BMW probably reported back to BMW HQ that you fitted a non genuine BMW battery and they sent your car a virus to make you go to a dealer for repairs  :P
 ;D

 ;D Probably .. although it's not new enough to have telematics (or .. actually, it might be, there's an "SOS" button). At least I bought a Bosch battery, can't it just be happy that the volts are Teutonic!?

My point is do not just pick on the older motorist, like the Duke. Perhaps EVERYONE should undergo a medical and abbreviated practical test every 5 years. All the time we have left to actually drive cars and for them not to drive us, with ever increasing demands on the competence of all motorists, this should be the way to go.  I for one expect to give up driving, if it does not give up on me first, in about 10 years; then I'll drive a mobility scooter!! :D ;)

This^^^^. You report to your nearest race track. The local "Stig/Stigette" sets a lap time. You then have 10 laps to post a time within 75% of his/her time.  :D

Changed the dead battery in the BMW for a new one.

The car promptly decided it couldn't tell if the roof was closed or not and disabled all of the windows (with them stuck half down) and the boot opener. FFS.

I just had to drag ~130Kg of 6' tool chest (which is still on its delivery pallet) across the garage floor to move it out of the way so I could put the car in there before it rains..
Beemers, eh?  ;D

Yes, of course. Currently sitting atop league two.  ::)

Beautiful historic city. Probably less likely to get mugged or beaten than in the city where Everton play. :)
Lincoln features quite regularly on "Pissed up Britain behaving badly" or some such tosh. Not what I would a "nice" place at on Friday nights or weekends.

If you are going to "ban" a group of drivers who cause most accidents ... which group should it be .....  ?

In November 2018, there were 5.3 million over-70s with full driving licences in Britain, according to the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency.

There were 11,245 people involved in road traffic accidents where the driver was in that age group - a rate of two per 1,000 licence holders.

For Britain's 2.8 million drivers aged 17 to 24, the rate was more than four times as high, at nine per 1,000.

The DVLA did not provide figures on whether this simply reflected that the older age group were on the road less than the younger age group. However, a separate study from the National Travel Survey suggests that over-70 drive an average of 1,000 miles a year more than under-20s.


probably not the elderly ???  :)  :)
I didn't see any mention of banning anyone.  :-\

I was out training tonight. -3 here apparently.  Was only cold for about 15 mins.  After that it was quite toasty.
There are some proper pansified knob heads around...

Been doing an induction all week, rooms are quite warm, so have had the aircon on full chat... Nice and comfortable in short sleeved shirt but one chap insisted on making a drama out of putting on two jumpers and a coat rather than asking to turn the temperature up slightly.

Given that he was doing the job, (working out on the Ramp), last year, but started in May and finished in October, he's in for one hell of a surprise next week when we start outside ;D

I will be laughing my nads off wearing a T shirt, fleece and hi vis. I can see him wearing full artic gear or asking for a job inside ;D

For me it's not about being 'ard, it's just you don't let your mates/team down.  Plus I don't really feel the cold unless I am sick. I often wear a vest jacket outside just so that people don't think I am deranged.

I'm 'sayin nuffin'. :)
