Enjoy yourself, life is short. When you consider how quickly a month passes, almost unnoticed, and then take into consideration that you might get, say, 80 years on this earth............that's a very scary 960 months!
You can close your mouth now  ;D

Death doesn't worry me Steve. Don't care if I die tomorrow. Just hope it isn't a slow demise - dementia, cancer etc.
All I ask for is a quick exit.

Easy. Walk down the Falls Road waving a Union flag.  :)

Likewise. I watched my grandfather slowly ebb away to Parkinsons, which is a horrible way to go, and I'm petrified of that one.
Recently started getting odd vision tremors, went to the doc who referred me "in case you need any brain scans" :o hopefully the opticians is right and it's just my other eye being wonky causing it, because the idea of a brain problem does not fill me with joy.

I'm sure that can be arranged for a small fee. ::)

Anyway. No need to be despondent. You have the C90 to enjoy now. :y

Do you have diabetes, Aaron?

Diabetes and eye problems can be linked.

Well that's what I thought but was too polite to say. :y

There is a common link though.

That would probably result in being kicked to death by a mob. Not very quick at all.  ::)

MOT .. 3 advisories .....  Exhaust corroded (centre clamp); nearside rear chassis leg (not too bad he said .. seen worse, worth cleaning up and treating); Engine oil sump corroded !!  (its is actually very slightly "oozing" oil .... so an advert in the sales and wants for a sump ....

1 fail - expected - front tyre worn on inside edge ..... I was expecting him to come up with some other failure related to steering/suspension to explain the wear, but he says everything is good. Booked in to a place in Swindon that has the hunter kit and is willing to use WIM's numbers .. 

Be interesting to see what they find .. wishbones are polybushed so shouldn't be them

Tyres at 08:30, alignment at 11:00 .. that's Wednesday sorted !!

My Elite has a rusty oil pan and has a constant drip from a crusty bit in the centre.
When I enquired a couple of years ago a genuine replacement was about 45 from Vauxhall.
