Vehicles (17 Jan 2019)

You can now add the vehicles you own to your profile as little icons that appear in your profile and alongside your posts.
This is a bit of an experiment. Take a look under the "REWARDS" menu across the top of the screen for the vehicles "ADD/MODIFY" option.
Let me know how you get on.

but never stopped before. :)

Its the mild climate down on the south coast. A lot of the spring flowers are on the way out already.
We have had Daff's out since Jan and the Bluebells are out already. Its a bit of a pain if you like gardening
as we have only had one proper day of rain in the last month and the ground is like concrete. :)

Very nice!

I think around 40 truck loads to clear the garden to build a nice workshop, and you're done B)

No need. The oast house and barn in the grounds was about 150' x 40' :laugh: :evil:

Great Pics but... I thought it always rained in UK? :whistle:

Jap Jimny's go "OK"
But Santana Jimny's go "Ole!" :p

It's hard to run like an Emu

Being an island we get our fair share but the north and west get the most as it blows in off the Atlantic.
I live on the coast in the south east so escape most of it. We are only about 50km from mainland Europe,
If we get southerly winds for a few days it brings the warm air from the south of France/Spain. :)

Here in Cowangie, which is 10 mins North of the Big Desert and 15 mins South of the Murray Sunset National Park, we get 8" of rain a year. So far, we had 10mm (Less than 1/2") on 6th February and not a drop since. Photos of rain appreciated. :woohoo:

It's nice when we can get to use a car for pleasure. Nice one.

Do it right - use Hammerite
When the blue light is flashing I am kidding.
