    True Fred, and like anything else if your mind is otherwise engaged and you are not concentrating on what you are doing the results can be just as bad, good driver or not.

    Unfortunately while experience is important it doesn't make a bad driver good it helps a good driver to get better, there are far to many people on the roads that learnt to pass the test often after to many attempts but have never learnt to drive, to many don`t even know the size of their vehicle, living in London I come across them every day, also there are a lot of drivers who don't have and have never had a license. Driving is a mental skill and like everything else not everyone has the right level of ability, I and anyone else can learn the mechanics of most things often enough to pass a test or exam that doesn't mean I have the necessary ability to perform the task in practise in the real world, I know how most things work but I don`t have the skill or ability to repair most of them and driving is no different, passing the test doesn't make anyone a driver it just shows a minimum level of knowledge in controlling a vehicle.

    Ranworth Breeze was lifted today for its Winter Service, it is currently in the old BMS workshop now run by NYA. Currently the boat is being compounded & polished to highlight any gelcoat repairs that need doing and the bathing platform rubbers are being replaced. A powered winch is being fitted and the heating replaced because of cracks in the heating casting made it too costly to repair. Regards Alan

    The road was closed past the cremated Swan yesterday, as they craned the scaffolding roof sections off of the adjoining building. They have at the moment still left all the vertical scaffolding and the traffic lights in place..

    I notice that the current bids are at zero bids, much as anything in life the true value is what someone is actually willing to pay which obviously isn’t the inflated value the vendor is after .

    It was me. I won last night. I was deemed to have won by half a point that had been previously awarded for a wrong answer The delightful Lynsey will be running next week's quiz on my behalf so I will make sure she has some really dodgy questions to ask!

    Anyone else been watching this new series fronted by Tom Kerridge? I love it. Great to see people who have a real passion for creating unique ‘artisan’ foods showcased. So much dedication into what they are producing and real effort involved. Helen

    Totally agree. I actually think the act of holding a phone when driving is no more dangerous than lighting a fag, eating a sandwich, or having a drink. The danger is what it does to your concentration. My last four cars have all been bluetooth equipt but if a call comes in I reject it and call them back later. I know that talking hands free is somehow completely different o talking to a passenger and I will not do it.

    I'm glad you are enjoying them gorgeous, seeing as I would have stopped a long time ago if not for you. So everyone has you to blame for my ramblings So after my 48 hours grafting each week, marathon training and spending every second available with you, I'm now not even allowed half an hour a day relaxing and watching someone yellow who is almost as daft as I am???

    I have one - I have not got a working indoor unit but it worked wirelessly to it which then connected via USB to my computer using Cumulus. It may well work with your unit, and better than going into the bin. If you are interested send me a PM - I have it in London but has temp, wind speed and direction, rainfall and humidity - this is the unit it originally came from Maplin:

    She is still Merlin and belongs to a forum member. I shall let him reveal himself should he so choose. He owns three wooden boats so tends to keep a low profile to avoid the men in white coats

    That's right Jean, nothing to fear. Just head across the Broad, there is a slight dog leg to the right and look out for the Wherry Hotel in front of you. Just head straight for it and you can't go wrong. Yacht Station is on the right at the head of the Broad. Well worth a visit and a quick train ride to Lowestoft or Beccles as well.

    Robin I hope you’ve informed your insurance company that you have removed your run flat tyres... And fitted them with normal tyres... Insurance companies would make your policy void.. And MOT failure... Technically you’ve made a serious modification to the car with out informing them.. Your wheels are built for run flats... where the run flats take the stress on the side wall normal side walls won’t... There for taking stress on the wheels what could cause it to crack and disintegrate causing total failure... If your insurance company are happy with your modification they will adjust your policy and quote it that you have made a serious modification to the vehicle..
