Put 94 of Opti's favourite love juice in it.

Thank goodness for A/C, and chilled seats.

I thought I was a gonna earlier, when sat on the potty, following eating something most disagreeable at lunchtime.

There was a big yelp, and a lot of blood.  Blotting, rather than wiping, was clearly the order of the day  :'(

Its made me feel quite delicate, and sorry for myself. Doubt there is any sympathy here though.

If enough air is getting it, it will bugger up the readings, and also upset the fuelling.

They do at our local in Dorset, Steve. Its novel..served in a large glass with lettuce, loads of prawns and sauce, and hanging round the outside of the glass, are big prawns, some with heads and tails and some with just the tail. Never seen it served like that before.....but it ain't 'arf nice, mate :)
Oh....and brown bread  :y
That was the yuppy 80's way of serving 'em. Went out of fashion to serve that way now (or more likely by putting in a bowl, probably can get away with less prawns).

Not that I can stand the damn things. Never eat stuff that comes out of the sea.

Never really liked the idea of these type of engines , never thought they would be any good.
They are actually very good, ignoring some design errors (or penny pinching) on the Ford units.

I didn't have you down for blind optimism...
Well, no notifications of dispatch or anything like that, so who knows ;D

Pretty certain they close at 6pm, so 53 mins....   ::)
Well, that surprised me, they called me back, and promise the missing spring will be with me by the end of the week.

God knows how much time I've wasted chasing this (work will pick up the phone bill ::)), but at least it looks like its resolved :)

I hope they don`t mind picking up the man hours either  ;D

Fingers crossed the spring turns up or you`ll be wasting more of works time and resources next week  ;D
Errr, yes, quite ;D

Whilst I've heard of the original, I don't think I've ever seen it.

Never watched much telly as a nipper, as invariably when I got home after school around 6:30 ish, it was tea, then bed.

Somehow (no idea how, or when exactly when) I knackered my finger either changing some brake discs or washing the car.  So I spent my Sunday grumbling.


You not got a wife for that ?   ;D
Apparently, that's a yellow job, and being the modern man like I am, all in touch with my feminine side, I did it.

But are you as thorough and considerate as Mrs TB and remember to empty the ash trays and replace all the interior consumables like the pack of wet wipes and the box of disposable hankies?
Stuff that for a game of soldiers ;D

Lots of bay of E sellers do drop ship listings
(selling stuff they don't physically have in stock ), shipped direct from their supplier
many ebay shops are just peoples homes,no stock , tat sent direct from china etc
Indeed, and I think everyone knows that.  But this was Demon Tweaks, selling stuff (allegedly) on behalf of Sealey UK....

I think my BS detector might have activated.
I thought eBay was full of retards and mongs and, therefore, was off limits?
It frequently is, but I stupidly though Demon Tweeks would be hassle free.  Silly me.

Still, they turned up today, so that's all sorted as well :)


Not sure what sort of feedback to leave...  ...I'm not shy to be brutally honest on feedback...

...which leads me onto another gripe about egay, that's becoming more and more prevalent - some kind of blackmail to make you leave positive feedback and 5 star DSRs.  They tend to get -ve and 1 star DSRs, as I don't respond well to blackmail.

I feel that I am lacking some trade knowledge about where to get good quality parts for a VW in a (Ford frock) at decent prices.
I haven't really used in anger, only picked stuff up for mates, but I work near a TPS, who I believe are a bit like TC for VW?
I was intending to give TPS a try but I won't be surprised if they they get a bit sniffy about dealing with a Ford
The worse they can say is no sir....

Just googled. The bloke who was in Biker Grove.

 ......

Come off it  ::) ..... I couldn't give a monkey's about most reality telly & its wannabe stars, but even I knew who he was without the help of Google
I recognised the face when googled, but couldn't have told you his name or what he's been in. Apparently, Saturday Night takeaway and the jungle reality thing (I thought that was done by that ITV newsreader though  :-\)
