    Whilst travelling in a queue at about 5mph I stopped. Unfortunately the chap behind did not. The result was scratches on the rear drivers side bumper. Everything else worked fine Upon inspection at my Indy it seems one bracket and the packing behind the bumper that absorbs low impact collisions...

    What happened to money?

    The queue at the bar last night was getting longer and longer as one of the card readers had packed in. This prompted a train of thought as to how often I actually use cash. Even an old dinosaur like me uses the Contactless system. The taxi driver had no change and wanted me to use a card On and...

    Budget 2018

    Think I am morphing into a Tory. Wait until my mates here that! I actually thought Phil's stab at it was ok and was turned off completely by the other one that does not have a reflection. However the problem with both sides are the women on their respective teams. They are really evil!

    Death of a Kangoo?

The 2001 Kangoo +150,000 miles has finally collapsed on the drivers side rear and it appears as though the Torsion Rod system has fractured right in the wheel. estimated cost for renewal/replacement plus shock absorbers etc is +£600 which is a lot more than...
