To anyone who has not used their car (or vehicle) for several weeks might be a good idea to charge the battery .

Re: For opera fans

Puccini's Turandot. The music is great and one of the last songs was press ganged into some stupid motor racing event. None shall sleep ( when these bloody cars howl and scream round a track) what's the point of that eh! I love the music in Turandot, but you have an heroine who is a bloodthirsty mu...

Re: Corona Virus Lock Down 'Rant' Thread.

So, what is a "reasonable" distance ? Difficult. The guidelines are do exercise locally to your residence if you possibly can - doing a completely unnecessary trip to walk up and down so someone else can see you is most certainly (IMHO) not in the spirit (or probably the letter) of the rules. It's ...
