Can't really think of anything to say about it really; just trying to
restore the balance against the spam, a little.
It's parked on the street, as usual. (The car, that is). I don't use it
often, but I expect it will start first time as usual when I do use it
next - as long as I get around to it before the on-board security device
has drained the battery and I have to buy yet another new one.
I got quite a long way on the last tankful of diesel - London to Cornwall
and half way back again - which was quite pleasing.
I would like to get some of the dents mended. They are an inescapable
consequence of parking on the street around here; I don't think the
neighbours know how to park without bumping into things.
Aaah you must live near me. Or have similar neighbours. Annoying isn't it.
you can kick yourself if ou do knock it or scratch it yourself but when
someone else does it, over night, when you're parked, well within a space,
on a straight bit of road. grrrr...
owning 3 Relays, 4 Merc Sprinters and 2 Merc Atego 823's i really can't say
Well i can.....you're probably right, only i can drive all of them :)
without hitting them.
I just admit due to the height of the dent on the drivers door of my xantia
i think it was a van... only its blue.. not white......
I think part of the problem is that I live in a 'close' with only one way
in and out, and only just wide enough for two vehicles to pass - so with
half the width taken up by parked cars, there isn't much room to manoeuvre
and everyone has to go to the wide bit at the end to turn around, or
reverse in or out. Add to that the proximity of Tottenham Hotspurs' home
ground and dents are only to be expected. My ZX isn't the only one to
Rob Beech (rob(remove)@cnics.co.uk) gurgled happily, sounding much like
they were saying :
I've come back to the XM in the supermarket car park - to find a trolley
still resting neatly in a dent in the rear wing.
I've sat in the living room and watched a little ol' lady reverse straight
out of the drive opposite into the side of the XM. "Sorry, I didn't see
Oh, yes, and then there's the scraped and dented other rear wing - that was
my own 2cv van - on a solid towing pole... I thought we were parking on
this side the road, she thought we were parking on that side.

Cis doesn't honour my cancels. Since yesterday the server I use for
cancels is off-line.
A long drive indeed. Next time plan a stop and a long walk near
Lulworth. Towards Lulworth Cove. Great site.
If you are there anyway. A little bit further is Weymouth. Visit
On the way back have a meal in World's End between Almer and
A bulbar for a ZX. That's a thought.

If you mean the server formerly known as cis.dfn.de, they never honour
cancel messages apart from those sent from the same account as the
original article - and many servers ignore all cancels anyway, so that
isn't an effective ploy against spam.
You can try complaining to the server used for posting the offending
articles, but that isn't always going to work.
'Block sender' and 'message rules' (I think that's what they are called)
are the way Outlook Express can be made to filter out some of the
rubbish; the general term is 'plonk' or 'killfile'.
Well, I did stop off in Cornwall for a week or two ... ;))
The whole of that bit of coast is worth seeing; it's been classed as one
of the world's natural wonders and is now 'marketed' as 'the Jurassic
Coast' (because of all the fossils in the rocks). I would use Lyme Regis
as a 'centre' for exploring that area.
I confess that I don't know that road; Dorset is usually just something to
get past on the way to and from other places, for me.
I have lost count of the number of times I've driven past Stonehenge
(often in the dark) and thought 'I'll stop off and have a look one of
To be fair, Individual.net (cis.dfn.de as was) do impose a reasonable
posting limit on their customers, which is a strong deterrent against
sending spam, and they have pretty effective filters on their incoming
peering feeds which mean that their users don't see anything like as much
garbage as is propagated by some servers. They also cancel accounts very
quickly if they get valid complaints about breaches of their terms.
Tall guy in the limestone? Do you mean one of the chalk-cut figures such
as <http://www.historic-uk.com/CultureUK/ChalkFigures.htm ? Some are more
interesting than others.
(I take issue with the comment on that page "The Celts first came to
Britain in 500BC bringing with them their style of pagan worship."; I
prefer the idea that social, technological, artistic, and religious, ideas
and practices spread and mixed around Europe, rather than tribes invading
and conquering each other - although that doubtless happened too. The
label of 'celts' was used by the Greeks to lump together the 'barbarians'
north and west of the mediterranean coast who probably didn't see
themselves as a single culture or society).
Aunty? Well, I am an Uncle ...
That's my heritage you're belittling >>:})=(>>
The disposable wooden or rubber 'rubbing strakes' on barges are looking
quite sensible right now. Or armour plating.
Well, when one has been lying on a hillside for a few millenia, one's
entertainment quotient tends to decline.
Possibly; or a Hun or a German, or a mix, as are we all these days.
Neither am I, as it happens.
Only if you weren't properly introduced ;)) The earthwork ring is the
largest single feature, about 125 meters across, and the Avenue is still
easily followed for about 1km - and there are traces showing that it was
once considerably longer. The whole complex includes numerous tombs as
well as many standing stones well outside the famous 'hanging stones'

Impressive. Those giants seemed to tolerate quite lumpy beds <G>

Oh dear, what have I started.
It's in a fork of the road. Uninteresting hills around. There isn't
even a pub near.
When we were there we were the only visitors, it was that crowded.
There was a guard though. Probably scrared we would start dancing
There is just one stonehenge. So Stonehenge is less boring as 50 odd
similar big stone circles.
