|Thread: What Did You Do Today 2019|
That's nice. When i was a lot , lot younger , and had hair , and a mum , i built a kit car...a Burlington SS , that looked a bit like a Morgan ..and Morgan drivers used to wave at me ,and i didn't ever wave back, as mine was a fake!! Me mum loved going in it , me wife hated it ..I put a 2.5 Triumph engine in it and drove it like an idiot and frightened her ...I gave it away to a school mate .. I'll find a picture...

My daughters hair straighteners make the dog go potty when they're switched on...electrical noise must hurt his ears ? Anything that will stop it ? Do those clip on cable watsits on phone chargers and laptops stop the " noise "?
I might add we can't here anything ,so it must be high pitched !

|Thread: Bearing race for bicycle wheel ?|
Bit off topic hijack ...Nigel , tell me more about this Whiskers catalogue..! I thought it was just a bike shop in North London ?
I bought this bike down our local tip for 15 quid, and thought it looked a bit up more market than a Halfords offering.. A decal on the seat tube says Whiskers , other decals say Raleigh Special Products .
|Thread: Last Night's Astro Image|
Watching the Perseids shower last night , along with the streaks , at times there were just bright small flashes , no tails , like how can I say , coming down vertically and burning up ? Were these meteors too?
