Ah, the Finns. They are bonkers :y I know a guy over there who had a 450hp MR2 Roadster for summer and his "winter beater for the snow" was a Mk3 Supra ;D ;D

Ideal winter car, the Supra. ;D

A mate of mine bought one years back, but only because he oversteered into a lamp post on the test drive and decided that purchase was the best way out of the predicament. ::)

I bet you looked more like this, though: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YeLi2TEvMII

Dress sense included (my favourite, though, is the very "French" use of the seatbelt...)

What a great example of why "drug dealer" tyres and automatic gearboxes have made driving dull. :y

My turn today.

Was about to order a batch of PCBs from the nice man in China, when I noticed one of my component footprints was completely wrong due to my inability to do simple maths. ::)

That could have been a waste of time and money.

Bu66er! Sorry to hear that. :(

That seems to be the way these days. They send out the bloke in the van, who's equipped to fix nothing, to make sure it's not user error, then they've met their response time target so can take their time getting a useful vehicle to you. :(

Still, kids asleep in a vehicle in the hard shoulder should damned well make you a priority.

I still break out in a cold sweat thinking about that day. I swore I would never go back, and I never have.  ::)

Yes, similar to when we decided to get some desks for our study. I filled my old laguna to the roof, back seats down, tailgate roped shut. Didn't look too bad as the car was still pretty much level.... until I drove off. The towbar had settled on the kerb so was taking most of the load!

Fitted a kitchen from MFI in the last house and it was decent stuff. Better than the rubbish the builders fitted here.
It;s not the builders ,the developer / specifier picks the crap to get installed  ::)
Yes, of course. I should have made that distinction. :y

Don't be surprised if you find a confused Chinook sat in your garden one night!  :o  ;D

Being not many miles from Odiham they normally spend the night about 300' above my bedroom, so no worries there. ::)

Was it this one Sir Tigger?

Almost.  I used to drive it a bit like that!  ::)  :y

Bonkers!

That engine sounds like a nest full of angry wasps. :-*

By the sounds of things I'm one of the lucky ones who've never actually been to an IKEA emporium,and I've no-one to pester me into doing so 8)
It's not somewhere that I habitually frequent... But they sold what I required at a price which I deem acceptable. If it lasts half the seventeen years that the previous MFI stuff lasted, then I will be content with the ballache that is visiting Ikea on a school holiday...

It's shit not having kids, as you never know when the wee snotty bastids will be foisted on the general public...

.. and you made it to the tills without going postal. Quite an achievement. :y

New element fitted as well.  I guess that had gone and blown the regulator as both were fskd.  £80 in parts, cheaper than a new oven :y

.. and mrs. Guffer will soon get over the fact that the chance of a new kitchen has gone for another 5 years.

I know, I've just fixed our fridge for the second time. You'd think she'd be grateful. ::)

I had a yellow one of these! :y

A great little car.  :)  For those who havn't seen one, think French Hillman Imp!  ;)

Feast your eyes on these!  8)  ;D

I bet that was even more of a fanny magnet than the Marina Coupé. :y

Are you hinting that Abbot has a fat arse?  :y :y :y

Well, it's not her intellect that's taking up all that space. ::)

Looked at my headlights last night and thought "if that's a 7" headlight, I'm John Holmes". :-\

Remembered that my car has 5 1/4" headlights. :-[

The thing is, back when I was a lad, the streets of victorian terraced houses with no off-street parking had garage blocks distributed around the place where you could rent a garage to put your car in. My Grandad had such an arrangement and so there was no need for much on-street parking and his car was parked out of harm's way unless he was actually loading / unloading it outside the house.

His garage has now been developed - into more high density housing with insufficient parking. ::)
