  1. They used getaway cars which were named after them, that well known make with non working indicators, Bader Meinhoff Wagen.........BMW LOL
  2. Hi If it hums have you tried teaching it the words....... Picks up coat on way out. David
  3. We bought a lined sail away plus additions, we are still working on it after 5 years. Is a boat ever finished? We have had a lot of time on board and several boating seasons travelling as well. Cheers David
  4. There is a council run recycling/tip about 50 yds along the road on the opposite side to the Eagle and Sun at Hanbury Junction on the W and B with the Droitwich. They also do an excellent Sunday Lunch every day of the week (cheaper during the week). Good excuse as any to stop by a pub (moorings outside or other side of bridge) Cheers David
  5. Great if your name is Elsan.....reserved parking. LOL Cheers David
  6. Apparently the main armament on HMS Belfast is aimed at a motorway services not far north of London! Cheers David
  7. In the CART Heritage Statement the SAM statement says the channel is 6ft wide so it must be closed to navigation already (insert irony emoticon here). Cheers David
  8. We used to be caravanners until a few years ago and the 6kg red Calor bottles were the norm with the front lockers usually having a capacity for two. This could cause a nose weight problem for some car/caravan combinations so Calor introduced the 'Caravanlite' bottles. These had the same capacity of gas but weighed quite a bit less, I think an empty normal bottle weighed the same as a full Caravanlite bottle so was obviously easier to manhandle. There was a price premium but this may have gone by now due to the increase in popularity and availability. Cheers David.
  9. The new pub/restaurant at Riley Green had a large fire last week and afaik is closed for repairs.
  10. Fantastic Bumholes and where to find them. Cheers David.
  11. As it's Friday...... Ten cows in a field, which one is on holiday? . . . . . . . . The one with a wee calf. Cheers David
  12. If you want to try Malta then the second and third week in the hotel is usually at a discounted price with the fourth week free. If you stay on mainland Europe (Spain etc.) for several weeks then you can drive there from the UK over several days and make it part of your holidays. Cheers David
  13. If you are using a pick up from Enterprise can they not 'Beam You Up' ? Cheers David
  14. You can always tell them to 1111 0000 1111 1111 in hexadecimal. ( insert smiley emoticon) I'll get my coat............... Cheers David
  15. Hint......It's NOT you that's wonky, it's the boat!!! Cheers David
