plenty of cars locally with "quick sale" notices in the widows
I`ve now added a cheap 2010 Honda Jazz to the fleet, EX model with lots of toys.
Noisy top end, so unbelievably preparing to adjust the tappets on the 1.4 lump  ::)


it's probably never been over 3000rpm(with the clutch fully engaged), with oil changes about every 3 years to get close to the mileage interval. A couple of quick, cheap oil changes and prolonged motorway driving would do it some good.

One elderly owner & then passed around a local family.
tapperty from the top end & adjustable tappets under the valve cover
The oil is as black as soot, think it`s fully synth 0-30  :-\

A noisy 10 year old Jazz, can't think why that would be cheap.  :-\

Now that my Mig needs some extensive work  :( I`m sure it`ll be  fine  :)

My great grand father policed the British Empire with his regiment between the wars.
I`ve got a foto somewhere of him with his mates sitting around  dirty great big machine gun
I think they used it to persuade the locals to stop expressing their 'freedoms'  :-X

General Discussion Area / Re: BA To Leave Gatwick?
« on: 05 May 2020, 18:57:03 »


  I note that BA are saying it will be YEARS before air travel recovers to pre virus levels. It will make the after affects of 9/11 seem like a picnic :'( :'(

good, we fly far too easily in modern times,

Maybe, but think of the consequences of all this on jobs, like Doctor Gollum’s, the Gatwick and Heathrow staff, the service industry, the aircraft maintenance crews, the aircraft builders, etc, etc!

It is going to be horrendous :'( :'( :'(

We can go green, turn our backs on modernity, but then live through the worst recession the World has ever known with people, including children, starving on the streets.  Is that all worth it? :P :P
Last week it was rotting corpse on the streets, now it's starving children. Get a f**king grip.

I have got a grip Steve with the knowledge that in distant places, like India, there are already starving kids as the sweat shops, that at least used to pay their employees the local going rate, have shut down due to U.K., and other countries, retailers cancelling orders and not paying the contracted severance money.

Our, Europe’s, and America’s welfare state will support our poorest, made redundant, workers so long, but when the financial situation hits the buffers........already the food banks are overwhelmed...........so yes, even in good old Britain “starving kids” could well be a horrible reality. :'( :'( :'(

If you cannot see that...... ::) ::)

If not starving, locally we have kids going hungry before all of this kicked off.  Lower paid, working single parent families have suffered as wages fall behind living costs.
Really struggled to find enough food to put on the table & turning to food banks to top up meager rations.

when I was doing the same job, whoops 5 years ago it might need doing again shortly

The lug on the  WP needs to sit in the recess of the plastic  cowl, the correct position looking at the foto means my WP needs rotating anti-clockwise ; if you get my meaning
But you probably already know this anyway  ::)
I`ll get another Gates kit which includes the WP,

My ears are glowing in the dark now, I need to stay out of the sun  :(

11
Got sun burnt ears, or is that another symptom they`re not telling us about  ???
No headache, dizziness or loss of smell & taste just yet, just these funny ears   ::)

12
Thinking about riding down to the beach with the team, but can`t  cos it`s the law  :'(
Heard a minister say: if you go out shopping etc be back within the hour
Bloody neighbors have been out all day, delivering much needed supplies apparently  ::)

Angela Rayner is the deputy.  If Starmer tries to take Labour towards the centre ground expect fireworks from her!  :)

Handsome woman & likes to put her locks up in a pony tail  ::)
If starmer just pulls that pony tail & whispers in her ear occasionally,  she`ll soon come to heel.

Used to go to school with a Chinese kid, his Dad owned several companies in the area.
He told me once that it was bad to whistle, cos it invited the evil spirits to visit you.
Another bit of advise was to eat dog meat if you have the fever
A very old lady lived in a back room & only spoke Chinese

Then one day without warning the family just moved & at the age of 10 I really missed my little buddy  & months went by & then  I got a postcard from NY city  :o the whole family were now in the US. that Christmas he sent me a one dollar bill which I`ve still got somewhere :)
Bit of a ramble, I wonder what he`s doing today  ???

Can`t think why we panic bought huge amounts of bog roll  :-\ Oh well can always start reselling it on Ebay  ::) Our local Tesco seemed to have most items available again.
Couldn`t resist adding to our soup mountain, I do like Heinz spring veg yum yum
I ordered the girls to buy 3 tins each & we soon had that shelf cleared again :y
