  1. Am trying to avoid my wife taking ferry which would then necessitate a two nights stay, when a quick flight and back the same day for our Son's appointment at Alderhay would be much easier. Partial reason she is 'happy' to take ferry is she will then take the car to drive down from Heysham and that she can pick up a new bike we have purchased from The Edge Cycleworks in Lancaster. Can anyone recommend or does anyone know of anyone who could pick up the ready prepared and paid for bike and bring it back to the Island for a reasonable cost. Thanks in advance.
  2. I only really knew her from the short co-presenting stint on Top Gear and occasional calls for participation in the wacky stunts of the presenters, but although I initially found her very slightly annoying she quickly endeared herself. She was funny and intelligent and always had a sly, wry grin on her face that made me smile. The fact that she could scare the heck out of the others because she drove so bloody fast was testament to her skills and although I knew she was highly regarded for this, I didn't appreciate the full extent of her accomplishments. Bless her for her sense of fun and thrills and condolences to her husband, family and friends.
  3. I immediately made contact with Weed upon Acoustic's recommendation. I went to see him and was mightily impressed. He (and his son) ARE the men for the job - thanks!
  4. With very good reason I need an absolutely rotted VW Beetle fully restored within a six month timeframe and £10-12k budget! She is NOT in good shape at all, in fact the restorer I took her to, has said there "is no metal to work with" - now I know that might put people off, but anyone willing to take on the challenge should know where we're at. Any 'realistic' advice or recommendations would be greatly received.
  5. Bump - Reduced to £8.500 otherwise will be sending across. Lovely car, done so little mileage and drives as good as new.
  6. Well that didn't work, did it! Re-advertising as we entered lockdown within days of me putting this on here, so I'll try again. The wife got a new car three months ago and her beloved S Max has to go. It is Metallic Grey (midnight sky) 7 seats, manual, diesel. FSH - 45,000 miles. March 2014. Fully loaded including cruise, front and rear parking sensors, DAB, 17" Alloys, A/C, auto headlights, rain sensor wipers, etc. This is a great 7 seater MPV. An ideal family car with very low mileage, in good condition. Offers around £9,000 Tel: 324999 or 471117
  7. Probably not unexpected, but still tragic for the families and friends. Condolences to all concerned. I hope matters at all Care Homes are being treated with proper due care and attention. Stay safe all.
  8. Aawww! Respectful sympathies to the family and friends. Stay safe everyone, let's contain this - whatever we may think about the Govt - stick to the advice PLEASE.
  9. Lol. As we've been saying he has followed everything Boris has done!
  10. Can anyone confirm the number of concluded tests as at 16:00 yesterday as I was sure I had taken it down as 1,334 with 95 confirmed cases, whereas there has been an increase in confirmed cases this morning to 114 but the number of concluded cases is now showing as 1,230. Have they made an error somewhere or is it me? ETA: Just watched the update and it said 1,147 it was misquoted on https://covid19.gov.im/general-information/latest-updates/ Which altogether puts a different slant on MY perception - an increase of 20 on 70 tests and then this morning 19 on a further 83 might infer we are reaching the worst (hopefully) earlier than I expected - here's hoping.
  11. Unfortunately, I don't think a future economy can survive on trades earning the kind of money only the supposed professionals earn across. I think we may have a rude awakening in this respect when people re-evaluate their spending and budgets.
  12. It only needs one act of stupidity or oversight to dramatically skew figures amongst such a relatively small sample size as ours, but as per this mornings numbers 'only' 3 new cases based on an additional 167 completed tests has to be good news. Stay safe. Thoughts to the families and loved ones of all those so far affected and huge thanks to those working above and beyond - the list is endless! T-H-A-N-K-S

  14. Not sure it is his personal responsibility, but the buck has to stop somewhere and he is the boss I suppose. Have had dealings with the Guy and nothing would surprise me!
  15. Silver C Class Coupe About to get valeted and will add pictures over next day or two. Great drive and extremely reliable. Although NO warning notifications on dash computer display, yes it has some minor faults: - It needs new back brake pads. - Back driver's side tyre has a slow puncture. -The indicator stalk on the steering wheel doesn't stay engaged. -It has some scrapes, but nothing that detracts from a fairly sound looking car. It has some service history, although I have not done anything much to it other than new tyres in past 2 or 3 years as I have done only approximately 10,000 miles in the 8 years I have had the car. It has done a warranted 107,000 since new. This is a lot of car (panoramic sunroof and all working electronics etc.) that will keep going for years, for not a huge amount of money in this day and age. Being sold as awaiting delivery of new E class £800 OVNO! Ring 471117 or e-mail nidgex@hotmail.com for more detail.
