    Another 'suggestion' from Mr Bezos. Inspite of my ongoing diet, I'm still managing to accrue more kitchen kit, this time two sets of pudding moulds (to make my sticky toffee puddings that much more presentable).

    My drone wont fly cos I live in restricted air space and I can't ride my new motocross yet cos I crushed (probably broke) my toe under the stand while moving it around my car port. Also, it didn't come with a kickstand and I'm looking at 10k to buy one with around 2 weeks delivery time. Not happy about that.
    Lang may yer lum reek...

    Full-blown addiction...



    I've amassed quite the collection of crappy Chinese made model cars in a very short time.

    Bonus though...Somewhere, somehow, it will be making a couple of old men very angry.

    How the hell should I know if it has a turbo or not ?

    You call them model cars. In my mind a model is something you build yourself with glue or fasteners.

    You're just buying toy cars. All assembled. Whoop de whooo you bought a toy. Look at my toy!

    More boring than a bowling shirt.



    Call me when an isolation valve breaks off leaving only the threads inside the plastic pipe in the wall. The local guys used a nail and a hammer to breakout the threads. Not if it happens again.

    Work allows access to the Gov cycle to work scheme, get approx 40 odd % off the price of my Volt Metro folding clown bike.

    Sadly, advanced age brings with it some unwanted effects, not least of which is the profusion of body hair, particularly in those more sensitive areas. Did a bit of research on which bit of kit would be the most useful and the least likely to render my nether regions like a S&M magazine personal advert. My new weapon of choice:



    I've grown a goatee beard over the last few weeks, so will also be handy keeping that in check.

    That'll have you ready for the wind tunnel in no time PAG. I have noticed lately that many products sold in the Uk now carry little flags which in the past used to denote country of origin but now seems to denote country of design, see it quite a lot on UK products with union jack flags....made in China, Turkey etc

    Well were not impulse buys here in Thailand but I brought back 3 pool bar signs, I hung one today while watching the Giants play the Padres. I also set up the JBL Charge 5 BT speaker set up and I can hear the game all over the yard while I work and vacuum the pool.

    As an old codger i am thinking of getting something a bit more befitting my sensibilities - always loved these, a mate had one in the 80s and i loved taking it out. Hitting the top end would put the shits up me on anything but a straight road so it has an in built safety mechanism.

    Ladies i want an Ariel Square Four....like this but i'm not spending silly money. Got some space down the end of the garage for an oily spot.

    Tell us abut your childhood . . .

    My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low grade narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery.
    My mother was a fifteen year-old French prostitute named Chloe with webbed feet.

    My father would womanize, he would drink. He would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. Sometimes, he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy.
    The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.


    My childhood was typical. Summers in Rangoon, luge lessons. In the spring, we’d make meat helmets.

    When I was insolent, I was placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds – pretty standard, really. At the age of twelve, I received my first scribe.

    At the age of fourteen, a Zoroastrian named Vilma ritualistically shaved my testicles. At the age of 18, I went off to evil medical school. At the age of 25, I took up tap dancing. I wanted to be a quadruple threat — an actor, dancer…

    The cartridge and handle is a Gillette Fusion razor. All comes in a decent carrying case, and weighs very little.

    My Dad owned an Ariel Square 4 in the early 1960s.
    I just vaguely remember riding on it with him.

    ^ They are worth a penny now, good ones. I have looked into them more and there are some worrying design flaws, the rear cylinders can suffer oil deprivation which ain't good but then again any Brit bike has its foibles. I'm not rushing into it but i do fancy doing a bit of old age touring sans tent.
