    Panic over everyone saw Paddy Tipping on the news today fears of his alien abduction have been proved groundless We can all sleep safely in our beds He is back at the helm as we all sail along on the good ship Titanic meeowed

    Seagull Outboards

    When I worked for Wheelhouse he got a xj6 from the auctions we thought it had head gasket gone but it turned out it had burnt the cylinder head out between the combustion chambers I took it to ray pettit and he ally welded it we had the head faced and it went off no further problems I think he made motorcycle alloy tanks as well meeowed

    Car dealers

    I recall me and my mate doing several mods to it We fitted four headlights antiroll bars front and back electric radiator fan spotlight on the drivers door and a tigers head that lit up inside when you opened the side door 8track stereo of course six chrome pipes out the side just for show and michelin x tyres worked well but a pain to park up if you got boxed in forget it your walking Our party trick was to get alongside flat hat fred and his bird in his MG midget then slap it into top and wave bye bye meeowed

    I had a thames camper in the sixties me and my mate put a four speed gearbox in had the same problem we put a separate lever in between the drivers legs You had to make sure you were in neutral before you pulled it or you could get two gears together it worked fine otherwise and fitted another cylinder head I think from a Zephyr four it was higher compression 13inch wheels and brake servo when we found out we could not stop the thing on smaller wheels Went round switzerland several time with it great days meeowed

    Things that pee you off

    When you looked at the effort for the likes of gay pride What a shocking indictment of this council no banners people in the crowd didnt know what it was for All those lives lost At least the lord mayor got to wear his best hat meeowed

    I went down the square on sunday for the RAF flypast what a shambles I am not moaning about the flypast being called off but the fact that no one had a clue There was no speaker system to inform the public of the cancellation I asked at the RAF stand they were clueless the police likewise A woman next to me in the crowd knew an hour before that it wasnt coming but it seemed beyond the councils ability to inform the crowd All this for the 100th anniversary The council should be ashamed of such a poor effort meeowed

    Watson Fothergill's Home on Mapperley Road

    I quite agree the same with the black boy hotel The 1960s councils where nothing but vandals to put 1960s shoe boxes up around the square shows they knew nothing about architecture whatsoever Watson Fothergill was one of the great architects of his generation and much more should be done to acknowledge his work meeowed
