It’s better to always tell the truth


Especially when you could not make up anything better!
 
Phone rings
Me: hello
It’s Lisa from Renewable Energy.
Me: Yes
Lisa: It’s about solar panels.
Me: I’ve got one, I don’t like them, it blew up my phone charger!
Lisa: Your solar panel blew up my phone charger?
Me: Yes
Lisa: Okay ehhrrr  good bye.
 
I hadn’t said it was in the caravan.

New car

New car drives like a dream, I'd forgot how much fun driving can be. Back sorted out for work tools.

Just need a name now. The first track on the first CD I played was Alice, the 3rd Phantom so could be a clue ?


There again I could call it "Black Wind" as in "~ come carry me far away" from Temple of Love

The Green Gothess is Dead


She died on Friday just outside Harrogate the RAC came and said the cam belt had broken and took to the garage I use near home.
I have only had it 2 and a bit years and it has cost me quite a bit in that time, so I am not pleased with it.
 
The Green Gothess is Dead
They confirmed it and that because of the damage it would most likely have done in the engine it would cost more to repair that the car is worth.


So on Saturday I went looking for a replacement and found this that I like. More details soon.
