    1. I drove passed Durham Firearms licensing office last night and there was a very strong smell of cannabis. Massive farm inside an old office block within 200mtrs of Durham Licencing office.Police all over it today.

      2011 L200

      Cosmetic I think,he buys all the time from some salvage auction site so I think he knows his stuff.He was really after a late Jimny 14 to 16 plate. He came round a few weeks ago asking me about them,as I've owned two and was on the waiting list for the new one. He stopped me yesterday morning & recons Jimnys,even cat n are fetching silly money.So he asked me about the L200 of which I have no knowledge. I said I'd ask the lads on PW and feed it back. I've seen him again this afternoon and he said its getting delivered this week. I initially thought he was only interested and was thinking of bidding, I didnt realise he'd won it for £1700. He has a load of close up picks of the damage on his phone but I didnt have time to look.He only lives at the end of the road so I will have a look when I see it on the drive.
    4. I miss the high street,when I was a kid we had a bakers,ironmongers,butchers, green grocers,and even a toyshop (I can smell the airfix glue now lol).The biggest store was Liptons,but for white goods you had to either go to Joplins in Sunderland or a big Co op store.There used to be a store on the our high street that you could get kitted out for school. I wish they would come back,but retail outlets and the ASDA's and the likes put a stop to that.I think the future for even the retail outlet & the ASDA's is hanging on a thread now.Everythings on line now and as said,you can sit at home in your pants and buy anything. There are even car sites now for example,Bristol Street Motors where you can buy a car online and have it delivered. It's a shame but we all let/helped it happen.

      I dont normally do politics but this guy seems to be everywhere.This guy is on TV nearly every day.Seems to have all the answers but not willing to run for leader of the Labour party.On the TV yet again shouting his mouth off, but sitting back doing nowt.Full of criticism obviously doesn't have the ******** to put his neck on the line.Or is he simply talking ********.
    7. Try Hendleys in Durham.
    8. Mine is a 1400 x900, if you have 2x shower heads just turn the tray round.Id probably go with a wet room.Got my tray of a company in Durham.They had trays up to 2000 x 1000 but the price was mental.

      Best shift i did was 9.30 am till 3.30 pm Monday to Thursday, brilliant in the summer.
    10. I've never had a credit card only Visa debit.Only once I've had an issue and Lloyd's refunded within the hour.
    11. Those with teenage boys go through tons of bog roll.Specially when you've had a go at them about using socks!
    12. Agree 4 wheel tracking is a total waste on its own.I did this with the MX5 until I got told to go to someone that knows their stuff and can use the Hunter system to it full potential.Ive even had fellow MX5 club members bring their cars 100's of miles to use AK Automotive at Rowling's Gill. £100 may seem a lot, but if your scrubbing 2 or 4 £170 tires off in 6mths then it's a no brainer. Both our new Suzuki's will be taken there if I see any sign of uneven wear or wandering. When I had my 5 in at AK, there were of race cars ( MX5's & Ginetta) in the yard all being set up for Silverstone circuit.According to the guy who did my car ( he only does alignment & nothing else) they set the cars suspension and alignment up for each race weekend depending on track.They also support the race teams at each event.Hence you can only get your car done at AK Tues to Thurs unless race seasons finished.

      Unless it involves lamping then it's a no no!
    14. Only went to McDonald's once,never again! Like a holding pen for the Jeremy Kyle show! A nursery for adults! Oh and the trots for 3 days and an overnight stay in hospital for my son. I do however frequent coffee shops most days.Stay away from the big chains like Starbucks,Costa and the likes. If I'm somewhere not familiar,I usually look for a little cafe of coffee shop.A quick look around the state of tables floor and cutlery usually is the decider if I stay.
