Losing phones, going to London, cars, and shotguns.

Anything else I miss?


Read it for yourself.


Them's the rules here.

What's AC?

Our house ventilates and keeps really cool in the summer without any.
Only temperature control in our house is a wood stove.


Frequently used in summer?

Speaking from experience Mark?
Actually, no. But my son did and he assures me he won't do it again!

I like the intro and misidentification at the end:


The Beatles Yesterday (Original) - YouTube
The story I heard was that the melody came to him as he was drowsily waking up. His girlfriend was cooking breakfast so the original lyrics were something like "Scrambled eggs, I just love those scrambled eggs ..." I don't know whether or not bacon was involved. His then girlfriend had red hair. Nuff said.

You've got to be careful when you retire. You might find that you're so busy that you don't have time to get a lot of things done. You could get so busy that you get behind on this thread. Like me.

"Minis"

They "go together" - same "generation"!

Can't find the post with ( I assume) an "original" vehicular Mini - had one of the very earliest 1959 Mini Minors ("Reg No": RBW 397) with a chassis number of just under 30,000, and the "thin" shell and so it was lighter than the later ones. OTOH, knocked a hole in the floor when out rallying, and finally "retired" it in favour of a slightly later "Traveller" (= "estate"/"station wagon" - but still "small"!). Put a "big engine" (balanced and tuned 1100cc) in first one and then the other - great fun and very quick (for it's day!), and surprised a few people over time, including, in France, a guy in an MG B who asked "what the hell is under the bonnet of that?"
MGBs were the definition of slow. Very good handling and a very sexy exhaust sound. Sort of like a 4-wheel version of a Harley - the bike you buy if you like a lot of noise but are too chicken to go fast. I really wanted an MGB until I discovered the Lotus Elan. The MGB GT V8 was more interesting. There were some really fast minis around. I used to lust after a Janspeed 1293 Janspeed

I still hear the occasional MGB and the sound is still good.
