I will say one thing, there's something on the can about nitrogen and an arrow pointing up with some bubbles around it. The cans go off like they've been shaken up a daft amount when you open them, and they really haven't.

To me lager is for lazy home drinking when nobody's around but if I'm in the pub it's always ale. That said there's a fair bit of variety in canned lager alone!

That's because it's smooth rather than fizzy like other lagers - just like canned Guinness draught...

Parked in town yesterday and in front of me was a 1967 Chrysler Valiant V8. Out of the driver testing place (A.K.A the bookshop) came a young fellow with the driving tester. They got into the Chrysler ! Young man with real class. It makes all the proper V8 noises too !

No.1 son has been learning guitar for a while, he likes Green Day at the moment and has worked his way through a lot of their songs, along with a lot of other stuff
I played him Screeching Weasel - Cool Kids on the way back home and he asked why old songs are better than new ones...He was muttering about needing to find a drummer to play with him at next years Leavers Assembly!

Punks not dead!

Anyway I had some vinyl cutting to do so made him a sticker for his guitar

I don't think he would get the Woody Guthrie part but another of his favourite songs is Tribute so it's kind of apt.

The Saab 9-5 bought in January from Barry Cade of this place is just 10 miles short of 150K now. Not bad considering it was purchased eight months ago with a paltry 132K on the clock. Four new tyres and three (full synthetic) oil and filter changes since purchase. The ABS ECU threw a wobbly and needed repair but apart from that the miles covered have been quiet and reliable. Mostly at over 35 mpg which is nice for a 15 year old car on the daily slog.

I was reinstating the railing that a neighbour had paid to put a gate in for their bin.

The owner of the property was a little* annoyed when he noticed it after his holiday as it is his land and nothing to do with the neighbour!

From grump thread:

 

'Okay no it hasn't, the car has sold already. After one hour of being on auto trader...'
 
 

Turns out this wasn't correct, the seller had another car he had sold and thought I was referring to that. He then called me back an hour later apologising and asking what car I meant, and then happily that was still for sale! It's a real gem from the photos, same family owned since new and 12 months MOT with new cambelt too. 

 

So I've left a deposit on my winter (and onwards hopefully) hack. I'm now done with car buying for now. Plan is to keep the 405 and AX also insured, but the former will be a once a week daily or something. Get it sorted out too as it needs a bit of love. 

 

Then hopefully at some point next year I'll be investing in a sensible daily, job permitting.

I love loads of stuff, green day is up there for me, but if he wants to see something new that may change his mind I would suggest he has a look at the Marmozets and the Touts, punk is alive and well and the lead singer of the marmozets could be Johnny Lydens bastard child she has so much attitude. They are both unbelieveable live.
