  1. 1919 and the mews in London where WO Bentley co-ordinated the efforts of the team that designed/built his first cars. I would willingly have been a minion in that line up. Must have been inspiring in more ways than one.
  2. You Couldn't Make this Up !

    All I said was an equal start in life would be a good move............. What happens after that would be up to the child and their parents. It is sad that some children should really be protected from their inadequate parents............it is a dreadful world!!!!
  3. You Couldn't Make this Up !

    I agree with most of what has been said about "equality" but wouldn't it be a fairer world if we could all have an equal start in life? Most of us did not and children born now do not!
  4. How's your day?

    Daughter in Loughborough phoned to say her cat is on her roof................................ I reckon she thought I could go and sort it!! I reassured her that it would come down somehow. .............I think!!
  5. Classic cars

    What a lovely job !! Credit to you plantfit I really like seeing a well turned out stationary engine.
  6. Well an interesting line up DJ I would have included Marvin Gaye in the soul singer group. Jazz/Soul Nina Simone Country/Blues/Soul Rhiannon Giddens .............check these out In my list would be Sathima Benjamin Like you some of these will be different tomorrow.........and the day after.........?
  7. How's your day?

    I have very few tools left from my early days mostly because I got robbed on two occasions............thieving b******s breaking into my garage. I agree with Oztalgian, buy the best you can afford. I have a range of Snap-On , Blue Point, Gedore, King Dick etc. etc. Some of the most useful tools are the ones I have made myself to do specific jobs.

    If Virgin Engineer is Eve then she is my niece.................

  10. Vimy Ridge Farm

    Excellent research thank you very much Cliff Ton
  11. I didn't know that!

    It is isn't it?
  12. Vimy Ridge Farm

    I walk I the area fairly regularly, the origins of this place are of course harrowing. Its use since 1919 was inspired and designed to help and support those who needed a leg up for whatever reason. It is indeed a shame that it should crumble away in this fashion; better for it to be knocked down, the land cleaned up and put to some sensible use.
  13. Car Parks in Nottingham! The National Front in Grantham! What is the world coming to.............................?
  14. Things that pee you off

    Thanks TBI, I thought the post was "Things that pee you off " for me that is economic systems that exploit people and create unreasonably rich fat cats.
  15. Things that pee you off

    #946 Without capitalism we would not have b(w)ankers, hedge fund managers, a cabinet largely composed of millionaires that do not seem to be interested in ordinary folk, the doctrinaire movement towards privatising key elements of a healthy society that values its children, those that work and its older people...............................I could go on.
