I went to a fair over at Burgh Castle,some old cars and trucks turned up with stationary engines,motorbikes and some big yank motors.Big crowd and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves in the sun.

Clever dogs.

My old pals Waveney District Council have decided dogs aren't allowed on certain beaches at certain times,have to be on leads and a load of other rules which means you need a rule book and calendar as well as your flip flops if you are taking your dog for a swim.
Judging by what they leave behind,there are some intelligent dogs here as I've noticed they even use toilet paper and drink cans of lager,pity their owners can't train them to use the litter bins as well.

Lowstuffs a boom town,The BBC says so.

I've just been listening to a load of twaddle on the BBC saying Lowestoft is in the middle of a boom.Apparently a boayyard that burnt down a few years back has employed an extra bloke,from that they reckon the towns booming.
Nice bit of film they shew of the town centre though,pity it was about four years old,half the stores shown are now gone.What a load of tripe passes for local news on the BBC.
The only thing I see booming are the slum landlords turning empty office blocks into grubby little flats and bedsits with the cost of the work subsidised by grants and hand outs.Boom,my backside.
Meanwhile the endless traffic jams at least make sure Lowestofts contribution to global warming IS well and trully booming.

Let us spray

I bought a diesel injector tester yesterday.made by Snap On,a hefty looking piece of kit.All I want now is to summon up the enthusiasm to whip the injectors out of the taxi or the rover and test them.
Both the vehicles seem to run pretty much OK and faulty injectors and empty wallets are natural companions so I probably wont bother.More old lumber for the workshop.

Hello Sailor

HM customs are outside the living room window.Is that a gun on the forward deck or are the sailors just pleased to see me?.

What did we do on sundays before car boot sales.

I thought I'd have as look at a couple of local car boot sales/I don't really know why,I usually end up buying some old tat on the grounds that it might come in handy.It never does and a few weeks later I'll end up selling or more likely binning it.The car boot sale at Burgh castle provided a couple of those jump start thingies,both buggered but I managed to make one good one out of the pair.Gawd knows why,I don't need one and don't think they are much use anyway.
Still it might look good in the shop window I suppose.
