The Cost Of New Production Valves

Post by simon » Mon May 29, 2017 1:46 pm

Well, not exactly new valves, more like redesign of an existing. Starts to make golf look like a cheap hobby...

The donation option is interesting. Can't work out whether times are hard or very very good?

I am guessing that producing a new BC109 from scratch would be even more expensive if you had to build the entire process from sand to device.

I had two goes at the crazy golf course at the holiday hotel last week.

A good laugh at no cost. :D

No one expects the Spanish Inquisition.

Wouldn't surprise me at all.

NOS valves seem quite good value in comparison.

Walking across Shrewsbury and Atcham Council Golf Course I considered how pleasant it would be as another park for the town. Very pleasant for a picnic. I did think about sharing my thoughts with some golfers but thought better of it.
I believe it would be a far better use of the land.

erm...................... funny old thing is that the Spanish Inquisition is very much NOT a thing of the past.

There is still a branch of the Spanish Police Force, now much rationalized since Franco's days, that still is THE INQUISITION. They have their own vehicles, offices, badges and accoutrements (ooops french) that make them fairly independent of the normal coppers and a website too where you can if you are a total nobhead foolish people, you can report your suspicions that the neighbours are Jews!!!! protestants!! Islamic hordes and so on.

Fairly soon, English peeps will also be unwelcome - who'd a thought eh.
Philosophers have only interpreted the world - the point, however, is to change it. No it isn't ... maybe we should leave it alone for a while.
