Dunno how I feel about it hence the smiles and grumpys are cancelled out. My mum is too nervous to drive it too! I worry it's gonna be a money pit.
if she doesn't drive it - it should last o.k.

tax will be a bit steep though

Re: What's made you not grumpy but not smile either today?

NO PICS

on the way home from work yesterday,
crawling down Botley Road in Oxford,

I spotted a weird paint job on the opposite side of the road,

it transpired it was a bloody great German 4x4 "TANK" in the eye deceiving paint

sort of thing you see in "auto express - spy shots" ( camo'esque graphics)

on German plates.. almost certainly a BMW , as they run stuff out of the Cowley mini plant.

must've been doing urban testing.. as it was well stacked-up.. oxford is becoming famous for this

2 hours to do the 15 miles home at night

Re: What's made you not grumpy but not smile either today?

A disturbing poop was made a little better by a completely clean wipe....

Filling up my car in recent times, it's averaging a crap 26mpg.... But then I remember I use it to go drifting....

Re: What's made you not grumpy but not smile either today?

This thing I don't know how old it is exactly however, instead of Newcastle business park where I work (built 1990) it shows the Armstrong works. Also the Metro map doesn't even show Jesmond nevermind the airport or Sunderland extensions.

Also to date it still further look at the petrol price per litre on scrawled on the front..54ppl?

If that's the price of fuel when the atlas was new it appears to be 1996

Well that dates the scrawl, however the roads in it would suggests it's late 80s at the earliest. I wasn't alive when the metro didn't go to Jesmond.

Re: What's made you not grumpy but not smile either today?

Now I don't particularly have anything against speed cameras in general, I live on within 3 miles of 3 primary schools so they are a fact of life. I'd have nothing against them putting permanent cameras up outside each school.

However when they start doing things like this:


You do really have to question the motives of those involved. As well that has no deterrent value whatsoever for starters...it's almost as though it's only there to raise revenue.

Not so much badly hidden behind a tree as strategically parked to hide the warning sign legislation requires which is on the sloped roof in above the windscreen and the dual row of flashing lights on the top.
