There's alot more to the place than the chavtasticness of Orlando  ;)
I only spent a week in Orlando, where the stereotypical arrogant Shermans hang out. I spent the 2nd week elsewhere in the state, about 4hrs away.

I didn't really like any of it TBH  :'(.  The postponed wedding that was supposed to happen last year - hence the reason I was there - is now happening this year, but I've said I can't go as I'm washing my hair or something.

I've seen a few that are starting to perish, but changing them is a subjective matter :y
True, but to me a bush either has a tiny bit of play as the rubber deforms slightly, or lots of play with little pressure when its failed, with not a lot of middle ground.  Though ARB ones may be different, as I've yet to feel one that I think has failed

I wasn't even a twinkle in days eye.

When I (reluctantly) went to Florida last year, all the Universal Park shite was, well shite, and about $300 each. Kennedy Space centre was about $35 and bloody brilliant.  So if ever you are over there, ignore the parks, go to Kennedy.
We didn't quite get the time to go to Kennedy when we went (in '89) but definitely on the list along with https://www.carolinasaviation.org/ and a couple of the carrier based museums and a whole shit load of other random places and people 8)
I'm hoping to never have to go back there. Ever.

Hi TB,

Found pair of Meyle for £25 delivered ,and standards are around £15 a pair so also agree with your advise.

Curious though about Poly ARB as they are over £40 a pair and std which have lasted 200k are only £6 a pair
£25 sounds about right for Meyle HD (make sure it is HD, but think they all are).

Never had to change the ARB bushes on any Omega I've owned, surprisingly.  Thats despite all the hump bridges and my Dukes of Hazzard stunts.

For drop links, I'd try to source some Meyle HD.  They seem to last well, and is what I have on mine.

Buying cheap shit just makes it an annual chore to do, and ultimately ends up costing more if you keep the car.

Does it matter?

Let us just bask in the moment. England ( or the other countries in the UK) dont win that much.

Other countries “ bend” the rules too over nationality.


Yes. If the England cricket team doesn't consist of English players, then the whole thing is nonsensical.

A large percentage of the population in England is 'non-english'.......teams like this are therefore to be expected surely.

Nope. To me, if you are playing for England, you should be born in England. Simples.
It used to be the case that you couldn't play for Yorkshire if you weren't born in Yorkshire.
And that should be extended to that sport of poofs that run around kicking a sack of air. Be born within 30 miles of the club. That would encourage more grass roots, rather than the current crop of prima donnas.

I think the bloke in the restaurant last night had the best investment type....

I thought he was a bit agitated and distracted by the cricket. He went completely radio rental when they won.  Turns out he had put £3k on England to win at the start of the series, at 12:1

One of my (high growth) pension pots lost an enormous amount overnight when the EU referendum result came in. We're talk 30% plus, in a few hours. It hasn't recovered from that.  Thats on top of the big hit it was taking during the global downturn from about 2008 to 2015ish.

So with high growths come high drops as well and these come round regularly, which is why most companies tend to recommend moving more from risky growth to lower growth but more stable investments in the 10-12yrs leading up to retirement.

High growth with a regulated pension company *tends* to mean FTSE 250 or AIM listed UK businesses as there's many fewer regulatory hoops to jump through (thankfully) compared to investing in BRIC countries or commercial property or anything more risky. These, unlike the ftse 100 (which were buoyed up) took a battering over brexit.  :-[

However, as DG is demonstrating, if you have a SIPP, you can pretty much invest it in anything you like (within reason).
It was a combo of UK and emerging markets offshore, to get the best growth (as I stopped paying into that one a while back)

Though having to top up coolant on a car that new is worrying.
