22 years here - thanks to Mrs Thatcher and her loony sidekick Cecil Parkinson. :lol: :lol: :lol: Professional Power Engineer offered early retirement at aged 48, but re-employed 6 months later as Consultant Engineer with 5 others because company could not operate without our combined 180 years of experience. Paid to work while paid a pension, lovely for me but not the way to run the Electricity Supply Industry. Incompetence only surpased by the present Govt !

Leave me alone, I think I know what I'm doing.

I've just got back from the psychologist who I've been seeing about my obsessive behaviour in buying cars.

The good news is that due to the lockdown I am unable to view any more cars.

The bad news is that he told me that I have the virus - the "car-owner-virus"

Man who puts orange wheels on a blue car finally admits to loss of taste.

I actually painted my wheels orange on my mighty blue Nissan Micra in Gran Turismo 5 a while ago! :-D

Tracey Emin did one like that. It was "a load of cods".... Much like the rest of her work.
