Re: Toyota Land Cruiser

I'd imagine this is making the Aussies worried, it's practically their national vehicle. There must be 100's of thousands just on the mine sites alone. The 70 is just unbeatable for sheer practicality. We had a few hilux's on site and they were just a big ball of fuck after 6 months underground, whe...

Swerv, have you tried National Trust properties local to you? Several near me make their own charcoal from the local woodlands.

Re: People not looking when driving

Not looking, not paying attention, generally not giving a shit about others (blocking junctions, pulling over in stupid places) blatantly using phones, being too stupid to understand 'smart' motorways (driving on the H/S when there's a big red cross and signs saying "for emergency use only"), drivi...

Re: People not looking when driving

M The thing he's most pissed about, is that he was just a couple of miles from home after a week away on a biking holiday with his brother, and this what the only time that anything happened. Bike is a write off too. I think he's only had it for just over a year. All because someone didn't bother t...

People not looking when driving

Just got off the phone to the old man, who just told me that he had a motorbike accident 2 weeks ago. A) Daft bugger for not telling me sooner - his excuse was that it's already happened, there's not much that telling me can do about it :roll: B) Why can people look where they're going? He was in th...

Who else is voting green? I was expecting to be in a minority of 1.
Me and if I was to guess DJ.
Ah of course. I remember you saying that you've voted green before.

Re: Your fleet running reports

Photo opportunity of all the 2's missed on the accord. :( Just replaced disks and pads all round. PS4's in each corner and new plugs. I think the thermostat could do with renewing too, I doubt that it's ever been replaced. It's a shame that it was rather neglected by the previous owner(s), as it's b...

Re: Internal IT

I may well be missing the obvious here, but why do the lights need Bluetooth? They’re controlled by an app so each team in the open plan office could control the lights without having to put light switches somewhere (difficult with no walls). You could set up “scenes” within an area (colour, bright...

Re: NC500 - becoming too busy?

Tummel Bridge to Killiecrankie isn't too bad if you avoid it in caravan season. But you're right, there are some fantastic roads the next glen over so to speak.

Re: Teh Spotted Thread

I didn't realise that you were lift sharing with Beany.

Saw my first F40 the other day and a McLaren of some sort. There's also an absolutely mint mk1 fiesta being driven by an old guy in the village. How it hasn't succumbed to road I don't know.

Re: Your fleet running reports

I hit a Dartmoor pony in my E36 once, as I was, funnily enough, driving across Dartmoor. It was only at about 30mph and it seemed to be fine. It just shook itself and wandered off. It made a right mess of my front wing and headlight though. What made it even worse was that 5 minutes beforehand is ov...

Re: Horses

im not sure that you should be eating Shetland ponies. Couldn't tell you what type of horse it was - It was just "Cavallo" as the Monday "Meat" dish in Mirafiori when I worked there. Tuesday's Salsiccia was much nicer... :lol: Ate horse steak when we visited Iceland. Wasn't bad, but not as good as ...

Re: Family holiday location in the UK?

We stayed near Tenbury Wells in the Malvern's in May last year and it was fantastic - probably partly helped by the weather. All we did was walk the dog and eat, but that's all wanted to do. If you don't fancy traveling the length of the country, why not stay a bit closer to you? I lived in Aberfeld...
