|Thread: Driving style predicts Alzeimer’s …|
I hope you are not degenerating. I had a relation who commited suicide as he was unable to cope with being unable to do what he could, remember things, etc.
I have seious issues with it and some days I just wish it was all over .
May you always be a Speedy Builder and never become a Slower Builder.
I wish you well.

Problems driving was the way mine was discovered.. I no longer drive.when I thought I would be able to for twenty or more years to come.
Coping with it is a struggle, especially when you make stupid mistakes and I struggle with others pointing this out to me.

Bit of a prickly debate
HBrian used the word SOME, not ALL, as stated by you, so perhaps no need to reconsider ?

I agree with you, 100%.
Usually, me posting kills the topic off, so fingers crossed.

|Thread: Simplicity Steam Roller|
Cannot find anything on an internet search.
May be worth asking Andy at Stuarts if any info available ?
|Thread: 2 Inch Ransomes|
Going back to build it behind closed doors would be a mistake.
You are getting plenty of views, as per Jason above, so plenty of interest.
I have been waiting for more info on boiler since last mentioned by you, ie copper or steel tubes , and making and fitting of same.
|Thread: More security for the shed|
Infra red beam covering doors and windows coupled up to to a couple of rook scarers.
You will know they are there, and they may well need a change of underwear,
Nice and simple and cheap.

|Thread: Lynton and Barnstable Railway Open Goods Wagons - Missing Details|
Many locals say it so sounds like a B. In fact some of the old boys say it with the broad devonshire accent and it sounds more like BARN STUBBLE.
Also, I think the mind associates a barn with a stable, horses, etc, more than a staple, if you see what I mean.
All good fun
PS My wife says in old days over here it was spelt with a B. So I have learnt something.
She says details on wikepedia.
The spelling Barnstable is obsolete, but retained by an American county and city. It appears in the 10th century and is thought to derive from the Early English bearde, meaning "battle-axe", and stapol, meaning "pillar", referring to a post or pillar to mark a religious or administrative meeting place. The belief that the name comes from staple meaning "market", indicating a market here from the foundation of the settlement, is likely to be incorrect, as the use of staple in that sense first appears in England in 1423.

Stephen Philiphs is very approachable and, from past experience, will help if he can.
I have every book on the L & B so will help if I can, Just send PM.
Born and bred locally, my relations worked on the railway, so very close to my heart.

Many people think there is a place called Barnstable because there is. A google search will tell you that.
I for one am pleased I have got it right on this occassion, right spelling, right country.

Agreed Rob but sadly making mistakes just goes against the grain with me, My problem I know, but too me it is important.
Thanks for all your kind words chaps , appreciated but I have to live with myself,
Suspect that may not make sense to a lot of you, but thats the way I am,
Noel Thanks kind words which is appreciated.
I have to be realistic as my wife says . I love the forum, I love the enjoyment it brings , but I am making errors and being told publicly about them is making me feel bad, . A pm I could live with. Then Derek , was not to know of my situation.
Reluctantly. to be fair to all members, and to save myself further embarressment, I have just asked Jason to close my account.
Thanks Noel for your kind words I wish all members well.

Yes , my wife has just read it to me . . Silly me .
Please accept my apologies but this alzheimers I have make s me do stupid things like that.
I hope you are never in the same position as me when things do not register, and people pull you up on it. Not a nice situation.
Perhaps best I do not comment again and make myself look a fool.
I think that as this is becoming a problem area for me, and I do not wish fo cause members problems like this, best I leave the forum, so I will ask the mods to delete my account.

My Norton Dominator with the featherbed frame suffered engine failure many moons ago,
My pal grafted in a Triumph 650cc twin engine and it worked well. Handling was superb.
Always wanted a Harley WLCR.
