    1. There were about 30 on my course.The guy was great, he didnt talk down to us or belittle anyone. What i found more shocking than the course was the 12% that hit the 'i didnt learn anything from the course' button at the end.Wonder if they would of been man/woman enough it hadn't been anonymous.Agree with triumphat59 comment,that even if you take the points the course should be compulsory.
    2. I did the course a few mths back.Done on the road out of Gateshead.Dual carrageway fenced off from the public & doing 57 in a 50 I initially thought i was badly done too.However my opinion changed when i did the course.Very worth while course and an eye opener to what an additional 5mph can make in an accident.Made me realise how complacent I'd become.

      Women Ahhh!

      One was blonde, the other 'keyless woman' was brunette.You know when you just get that 'empty' look when you as someone something.You just think 'oh this is going to get entertaining'

      Popped into Suzuki today and got blocked in.New Vitara parked right in front of my car.So i popped into reception and asked if said car could be move.Two young girls then went looking for keys.One came back waving a fob so i went and got in my car.Moments later i saw the hazards blink and the young girl get in the Vitara.2mins later nothing happening, 5mins later still nothing.She then gets out and comes over apologizing"the key fob doesn't have a key its just a fob".Before i could stop her she's heading off back to reception, reappearing with her other friend.Both approach the car with very puzzled looks on their faces.Still no go,just a lot of head nodding and finger wagging as they struggle to start the car.I gets out the car again to advise 'THE REASON IT HAS A FOB AND NOT A KEY IS,BECAUSE IT HAS A START BUTTON WITH THE WORDS START BUTTON ON IT'

      Haha was mad in my house,dad would belt me,mam would belt him.Dad would go to the pub for a week.Gran would go up the pub and kick off with dad.Grandad would kick off with gran.I would get no pocket money for a month.So id play the dinner nick at school & spend me dinner money.Then id get caught, get the cane.Go back home and it would all kick off again.Loved Grandad he would call me dad a anchor and let me smoke his pipe.

      I ran old Mrs Patterson over on mine, that's when the plank snapped.She fell on top of me and the bogey went crack.Old Mr Patterson bashed me with the crook end of his walking stick.Then my dad belted me when he got home from Pit.

      Lol, i couldn't help my self last summer.Her in doors went in the house after a barbi.I'd had a bit to drink & nipped in the garage and grabbed a empty aerosol and lobbed it on.She comes back out,i panicked & tried to stop her coming up the garden & BOOOOM!!! She nearly had an heart attack. A bit of shrapnel puts the glass out in the greenhouse & i end up in the doghouse.

      Pea shooters fights,gats fights, bows and arrows.Ended up in hospital with an arrow stuck in my temple once. Daft thing was i was supposed to be one of the Indians.Big brother tried to pull it out but it was stuck.Snapped it off like in a cowboy films,ended up just making it worse. Controversial now but every kid used to have an egg collection.Every day in the Summer we would go nesting.The golden rule was only take one egg.We where never in the house in those days. Used to hate Sunday bath night & bit like Monday mornings now.We never had much as kids but we always had plenty to do.Great days,really great days!
    11. 1st thing i did when i turned 50 was get me and the wife's funerals paid for.Nowt flash,just the CO OP once paid & done thing.Now 56 but i review my will every couple of years.Mortgage has been paid off since 1991 so young Ben should have a decent start in life. He's already been told to get something put in place if he marries to protect his inheritance.

      I used to drive the wifes ecoboost gently and easily average 57/60mpg on a run with CC set at 60mph.Thing was a tad over 2k rpm. Wife on the other had used to rag it about and only average 40/45ish. You cant help yourself to be honest as the boost from the little turbo is addictive. She now runs a 2017 Suzuki Ignis (little white thing in my avitar)(was mine but she took it)Cracking little 1.2 dueljet engine,smooth and very comfortable car.I had it down York a few month back & it averaged 67mpg @ 60mph.Lovely little roomy car but ugley as sin from the back.We've had it 2yrs a still park it with its rear against the wall lol.Would defiantly have another Suzuki with the 1.2 dueljet engine.I know they do a ecoboost as well but personally i like their naturally aspirated dueljet.Cracking engine,smooth,free revving,plenty of poke for what it is, but excellent MPG.Even round town we are averaging 50/54mpg

      Wife has a 2016 1lt 124 Fiesta Titanium X from new.Never had an issue, put a proper smile on you face.Always amazed me everytime i drove it.How can a 950cc engine feel like a 2ltr. Then it went off to Mountune and that just made it bonkers.
    15. Even stock its the most fun you can have without losing you licence.This was never going to stay stock as i needed a hobby to replace shooting. BBR kit was planned for the spring but i had a chance to get the kit and AK dont race over winter so fitted January. Haven't had the weather or a safe empty road to push it yet. Going to wait till spring and do a track day at Croft rather than use public roads.
