Thank you for the V&C's on my wind surfer yesterday, and specially to Eric [Gypsyman] and Dave [Whiterose1] for their mods ! I love it when you guys do for me what I cannot do for myself SmileGrinGrinGrinGrin

Good Morning Herman, one of my favourite animals you have here, no, not the flies; she appears to be dealing with this annoyance with dignity.

We have gale force winds here, would be great for drying the washing if only I could keep it on the line [our famous] Tinsley viaduct is closed; this is a section of the motorway system, which is double tiered............. only 12 days before I fly off to warmer climes, can't wait!!!
