    What's the best old 4 x 4 ?

    Just watched my old D22 go up the road . No sign of any smoke and drives like a dream . Oil and filter changed every 6K on the dot . Sold it for £500 with 100K on the clock . If he does the same with the oil it might do another 100K !

    I have the Huawei tablet only because they gave me it for free . It mates with my Huawei phone and I can " gift " the data from the tablet to the phone should I ever need to . Unlikely as I mostly use the WiFi . I do think however it is a useful addition .

    Rattly husky 61

    Don't forget to check all the other things that may or may not have caused the piston to become scored . It might be because the bearing cage collapsed but it might be there was an air leek making it run lean . It would be a shame to rebuild it only for it to nip up and have a lean seize ...

    Chain saw wellies are THE MOST uncomfortable things I have ever tried . I am going back several decades but they were 'orrible . By proper boots , cheap new ones or second hand .

    The BIG C .

    The latest is .... My wife had a telephone appointment with one of the doctors at the surgery she is registered with ( organized by one of the doctors at the surgery she works at ) Its all on the hurry up now . Endoscopy and/or CT scan looming together with blood test for liver function . Also , not at our instigation , there is an internal disciplinary thing as to why it was missed on the notes . May help others in the future . That's all I can tell you so far . I would like to thank all you guys for you good wishes and thoughts . Lets hope they won't be needed !
