    That's £48000,000 that could have done a lot of good towards improving the infrastructure of Nottinghams roads!!!

    The lightning conductor side merged with the steeplejack side and the rest was sold off and the ceased when John Furse retired. He started the 'jacking ' section when he bought, Mac Donalds steeplejack s near canning circus.

    Vaping vs the dreaded weed

    Ahh you see, you don't get that with vaping. If you don't smoke or if you vape you can tell if a person smokes as soon as you get near them. The smell lingers on everything!.

    China's Moon Landing.

    If you think about it, the Chinese can make a lot of things work, maybe Confucius has something to do with it!!.

    German autobahns, a great way to get along. I regularly use them when I take the bike to Nuremburg, and the good thing is the drivers over there pay attention to what's going on around them. It also gives me a chance to blow the cobwebs off the bike. Mind you, they are not all unlimited !!. That's another story ,!

    I know that there are two side's, sometimes more, to many discussions. But personally, i feel that the majority of speed limits are a joke. Back in the days when Jesus was a kid, speed limits and stopping distances were based around the car's of the day. Now we have vehicles that can stop and handle much better than then but now they are bringing speed limits down. I know it still requires sense to drive, but I think it's mainly done for revenue purposes. Yes I do speed occasionally, but only when it's safe to do so, not in cities, villages, bad roads or conditions etc. And yes I still have a clean licence, and have had for at least 10years.
  24. I bought my lotus elan from him, my father knew him at the time and I got about £150.00 knocked off the price.only had it about 6weeks, before some thieving scrote nicked it. Mind you, in those 6weeks, it spent more time at Mick lovells garage, his place was under the railway arches at broad marsh !.
