Well....That's more than I weigh, Ian. :D

No wonder I was struggling.

(I'm not happy.....I've just thrown 15  or so quid down the pan, on a DVD that I was genuinely SO, SO looking forward to getting, and watching.......What an absolute pile of poo. X_X.

I loved the book (Good Omens).....But the adaptation......Good grief !  :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(

OK. >:( >:( >:(

This has absolutely nothing to do with gaming, or wee soldiers....

But I've been absolutely blanking fuming since this morning.

I was driving in the Techno-mobile towards Cardigan this morning.....Pitch dark.....Rain slamming into the windscreen....Cars' headlights coming towards me.
I am aware of two very 'odd lights' on my side of the road. (Never noticed streetlights there before  :-\....But the lights were 'up high'....But it looked very 'odd'.)

Slow RIGHT down....What on Earth ??

It was a some sort of Manitou (?).......No rear lights or reflectors.....No pretty yellow 'flasher' on the top of the cab.....

Please tell me that you're not allowed to drive ANY motor vehicle in the dark without the appropriate lights at the rear of a vehicle.

Cheers - Phil

So disappointed to find you hadn't stumbled upon one of these roaming the Welsh Hills

Pretty sure they NEVER have reflectors, tail lights or yellow flashers ... the odd eerie blue glow perhaps ...

I too thought a Manitou was some kind of supernatural creature.

I loved the adaptation.
I have neither the time or the crayons to explain why you are wrong.

I wouldn't have minded driving into the back of a supernatural creature.....Rather than a 5 ton bit of agricultural machinery.
I expect the supernatural creature would weigh a lot less. ;)

Yeah, but a bit more tricky to explain on the insurance form  ;)

OK......There's one thing that's really puzzling me, at the moment.

I often use the BBC's red button on the TV at lunchtime.....So I can mute the sound, and then go through the news headlines quickly.

There's an item that has been on the list......exactly the same story every single day...and it must have been there for well over a week now.
It's about some singer called Camila Cabello.....I mean why ?

Can understand it might have been of interest on day one, if they were short of news, and maybe a second day.....But why's it still there now ?

Very odd.

Cheers - Phil  :)

From memory and a long time ago - all vehicles on the road have to have reflectors, that's all normal size vehicles need, but goods vehicles, agricultural vehicles and PSV's need to be lighted, one red on the offside rear white forward. Skips must have a yellow beacon, or two, on the offside. You can check further in what ever the current Road TRaffic Act Con and Use rehs say. (interesting read - NOT).

Thanks Ian. :)

I'll have a gander later on.....If what you say is true, I may need to find a couple of matchsticks to prop my eyes open. ;)

I'm guessing restrictions on what you can report in the run up to the election, coupled with her appearing alongside Kate and Wills at Kensington Palace for Auntie Beeb's very own Teen Heroes Awards, taking part in several charity events (e.g. $10K donation to a US immigrant's GoFundMe), having the best selling digital single of 2018 and having co-performed "Senorita" with boyfriend(?) Shawn Mendez  ... which is now going to be my earworm all day long - DOH!

Silly question, Gang.....

Anyone know why May Day Bank holiday is a week tomorrow (11th May) and not tomorrow (4th May).....Or are my calendars lying to me ?  :-\
Just seems a bit odd.

To spread them out a bit maybe, in the spring we have 1 Customary and 3 bank holidays  (customary hols are Good Friday, Christmas Day and Boxing Day except in Scotland) and if had been on the 4th we would have had 3 in 3 weeks.
