It was very easy to work on and I replaced the engine, gearbox, clutch, wings, radiator, front grill etc. You could pick up the parts for very cheaply. I also had a Morris Marina coupe which was the successor to the Minor and is a...

Do we need teachers

I look at all these striking teachers who seem to be so sad and I think do we need this lot. I think you practically take someone off the street to teach most things within a fornight. With so many excellent tutorials online I think teachers may go the way of 35mm film and vinyl records and become l...

Things bought on holiday

Grass seed. We were on holiday near Woolacombe Bay and I thought I must get some grass seed which we got from Barntaple. It was one of those discount diy type places and you scooped it out of a sack into a paper bag. Also bought an electric organan from a carity shop. Other things I have bought on h...

Another thing is the rush for green energy in the form of hundreds of thousands wind turbines on the boggy hills of Britain has ulimately increased the speed of water runoff in th...

When I say chipping I mean when they put branchwood through a machine which leaves neat litlle piles of chipped wood which gives the countryside a municipal parks and gardens look. You see it at the roadside, ar...
