    Keeping a non-shiny look

    We're not idle sods. We just have more interesting things to do (and spend our money on) such as.....................boating!

    Is that a Colchester lathe you have in your shed?

    My experience of insurance is that one is covered for everything except in the event of making a claim...... .......When one finds one is insured for nothing.

    The best one I've heard is a Mrs Shinyboater trying to jump the queue at a lock, "We're meeting our friends for lunch" saying private boats took priority over hireboats(!)

    Middlewich Branch breach - Shropshire Union

    Lock 20 was still shut when we were last there, about a month ago. As that stoppage notice mentioned there was a nearby alternative I wondered if whoever posted it had meant Lock 20 instead of Lock 8.

    Must eat (and drink) pubs on the Stourport ring

    Oops! My mistake.

    I've nothing to add apart from recommending the Bull at Trysull. It's a Holdens pub, and while their beers are very good, it also serves Bathams bitter which is even better. Trysull is a pleasant stroll from Awbridge or The Bratch.

    Middlewich Branch breach - Shropshire Union

    Yes, I wondered what that stoppage notice was about too. As to Lock 20 being out of use......... Well, leaving it that way is fine, until something happens to Lock 21.

    The "thing" is back!

    The dementor boat! I think I passed it at Tyseley a year or two ago. It really is hideous. The worrying thing is someone, somewhere thought it was a good idea!

    Car Ownership

    I've often wondered how motor manufacturers arrive at the names for their products. Are there lengthy, W1A style, meetings where the main language spoken is fluent bollox. Or is there just a spotty yoof throwing scrabble tiles in the air and watching how they land?

    HOORAY! A 'u' after the 'q'. Something the illiterate manufacturers can't seem to manage.

    Well done that man! That's a proper use for a garage. (Only boring people keep cars in garages)
