    Could you not use your MM to measure the resistance of each coil pack Loppy?

    I can count the number of times I've lifted the bonnet of my car on the toes of one hand. Let them as wants to, get on with it.

    Which ties in rather neatly Col with the earlier discussion. Hofstadter in his discourse examines how fringe groups can have a disproportionate influence and how individual behaviour can impact much larger groups. Such things would be difficult to think about objectively whilst trying to remember 'mirror. signal. manoeuvre' or negotiating the intricacies of a two lane roundabout.

    I passed my test in a HA Viva, passed first time after only six lessons. That was of course before I became interested the influences of history, culture, and the societal emergence of institutions that influenced geopolitics.

    How's your day?

    After playtime with their little pals there was always a prize for who could collect the most toys and put them back in the box. Strangely enough there always seemed to be just the right number of tubes of Smarties for everyone to win a prize

    And long may it remain so Ben, some just take things way too seriously. If we stayed 'on topic' we'd probably run out of things to say by page 2

    I did that too Margie. The cardboard tops were from wide necked bottles and had a centre you could push out to make a ring. Made good skimmers too. We also put four pins a cotton reel and made the strings. I think we called it French knitting.

    I LOVED stera milk so there Hot on me shreddies (three in a pudding bowl) in the morning and in my tea. Towards the end of the week a bottle of stera and a bottle water in a big jug to dilute it. The jug was one of those you used to see in bedrooms with a matching bowl.

    It demonstrates how from little acorns, oak trees grow. The Labour MP Dawn Butler who has obviously nothing better to do but raise her own profile as a champion of equality and liberalism has seized on a meme to further her own agenda. She probably doesn't give a rat's a*** about it but it's all good publicity. This will be picked up by the loose association we call the PC brigade and promoted for awhile until a new 'flavour of the month' comes along. But it will leave an impression in peoples minds and it will gradually become a 'norm' that we can't use things that are not British in origin. The problem with that is there is no such thing. Being British is an amalgamation of more than a thousand years of history. We adopt and adapt from cultures all over the world. I say if apologies and reparations are needed. India has fifteen official languages, one of them is English, can I have my share now please
