    One eyed wonders

    One of my wifes DRL lights was out so I told her and she said No worries its going in for an MOT, garage phoned up to say its not fixable as its the whole headlight unit to replace!! £200 thank you very much. Also have you noticed how many people drive at night thinking they have their lights on when its actually just the front Daytime Running Lights, no rear lights on.

    Property Madness

    I was brought up in a small village on the edge of the Lake District, actually where John Peel is buried, where the cost of housing was twice the average cos it was a nice village with amenitites. I used to walk to school an know just about everybody, by the time I was working all the old uns had died and the houses bought by outsiders,often as second homes. I had to move ten miles away to buy a house and even now 40 years later would have to considerably down size to buy a house in the village. Market forces, a house down south sold on retirement meant the buyers could pay more than a local for a house and still have cash left over.

    Shock horror my HW100 goes wrong!

    Its a idea being a sticky reg, but never happened before or since. Use the gun regularly and top air up after two mags, no power curve, no drop off.
