Some folks only request information, which is fair enough by me. Maybe they don't want discussion, chat, banter etc. Different people want different things from a forum, and that's fine.  If

The Richard Greene versions of Robin Hood

Played as the Reds ran out onto the pitch in the sixties led by the great Bobby McKinlay

Do they ever play this at the City Ground now or is it Mull of Kintyre which is a bloody long way from Nottingham?

Mary, Plums usually activate the bowels, so I expect they are blowing in the wind!

With out being sexist most of the answer's would come from our lady members.

Can you remember Love Letter's ? you know that old fashion thing written on paper, placed in an envlope, lick stamp, place in post box.

Well if we wrote a letter to a boy, what did we write on the envelope?  

I.T.A.L.Y.  translated is I trust and love you.

Postman, Postman don't be slow be like Elvis Go Man Go.

I had a tortoise as a kid. He was always escaping through the hedge into other gardens. Dad painted Running In, Please Pass on his shell.

Running it in has never been mentioned on my cars for years. It used to be cars had a first service at 500 miles but I think modern engineering standars have done away with all that.

When I bought my first new car, back in the distant past, I'd only had borderline MOT cases previously. I said to the garage owner,when should I book it in for oil change and cylinder head tightening.? He nearly fell off his chair laughing. Cor! You're a bit past it lad, he said.

And a decoke after 8 to 10,000 miles and a full service if you were going to Skeggy. Dozens of grease nipples needed feeding now everything is a sealed for life component checked by a person with surgical gloves and a sharp pencil, all for just £50+ pounds per hour.

Main dealers are a total rip off. Now that my car is out of warranty, but has only done 13,000 miles, I will be using an independent for servicing at less than half the price. I bought my current Merc at one year old with just 1,000 miles and it didn’t cost me anything to swap my F Type. In fact they gave me £1,000 with which I bought an electric bike! Mercedes are currently looking for cars to sell because of the new car shortage and they recently offered me quite a bit more than I paid to buy it back. I am considering a hybrid. I often do long round trips which most electric cars won’t safely do on a full charge so a hybrid would be adequate for my local trips and I would have the backup of an engine for longer journeys. I’m tempted to lease rather than buy next time. That’s what most people do  now apparently.
