It's a girls car anyway, Merc sports.

Obviously, you can tell him that, rather than me.

I always thought he was lucky his surname wasn't Wittler - the ring nickname would have been harder to come up with.

I just bought a penknife for the first time since the Eighties. Always useful around the house, especially for dealing with impenetrable packaging. It's a Laguiole-style shape, with a Damascus blade. It looks a bit like this one:

Posh git. The rest of us have Stanley-types. Mine are in designer black and red. Though I also have a couple of blue ones and an old-school grey one. Well, you have to have one that goes with your overalls.

;)

 

 I also have a six-inch  kitchen knife in my toolkit. It's surprising how often it comes handy.

It was heavily-discounted, as was my chef's knife, which was an end-of-line clearance sale - down from around £40 to under a tenner. You've got to like numbers like that!

I've been to the Lagouile factory, designed by Phillipe Starck, the roof of which has a Lagouile knife blade jutting out of it.

My blood test results came back.  My total cholesterol reading was 3.5, HDL 1.7, LDL 1.6.  Not too bad for a fat knacker with a tendency to eat too much unhealthy food.

No :(  Unless they can say for sure they can fix anything that comes out of the test then I'll avoid it...

I am off to my best mate's wedding tomorrow. He's made the poor girl wait more than 10 years but finally asked the question last year. Should be a good day.



The last government were convinced that we were there to do their bidding. They wasted vast quantities of our money in order to spy on us, intimidate us and needlessly over regulate us, whilst gold plating their own pensions and expenses. Their behind the scenes encouragement of, and turning a blind eye to, the kettling and harrassment tactics of the Police are a shameful episode in our history which we need to remember and address urgently. - Haloman

I'm at a union game in East London today. The clubhouse meal finished with a rousing rendition of Jerusalem by the be-blazered clubmen. Some places...

Do they pay you to go to places like that? If not, why do you go? :tongue:

Enzo Ferrari, died August 1988; Mezut Ozil, born October 1988. Coincidence?

Look at the size of that steering wheel ... enormous torque needed to turn the racing wheels without power-assisted steering.

 

Proper racing.

And that would be with skinny tyres.

Was the person who proof-read Hitler's speeches the first grammar Nazi?

I suspect not.
