Nice sunny day here. I should really tend the garden as for the same reason as mentioned by Richard earlier it is overdue some much needed attention - in essence too wet over the last couple of weeks. But it might have to wait as I haven't the enthusiasm to sort it today and other things are occupying my time. Might nip out to Tesco shortly mainly to get out of the house and stretch my legs but I wouldn't bet against returning home with a load of stuff that didn't really need to be bought - at least not by me lol.

Hi Phil. The V6 is not really my forte and one of the gurus will be better able to assist you. But I think that it might help if your mechanic could list the parts needed ideally with their part numbers as I do believe that there are differences between things like the rear pulleys if indeed one is to be replaced. Plus I don't know if you have already done so but maybe raising this in one of the more technical areas of the site might give it greater exposure and get you more help.

Afternoon all, The skies have darkened & the wind has picked up here, Just put all my outside tomato plants inside the greenhouse out way of the weather warnings for heavy rains & thunderstorms which are forecast for later on.



They don't look too far away.


Better get me train drivers on then for some Train Sim World gaming ....Beggar! just realised I've missed the start of the French F1

G'day fellow LCOZers - it has been a canny day here in Lincolnshire - fair bit of sunshine and pleasantly warm temperatures - I've even dug the shorts out

Had a cracking meal last night - if you're ever on the A52 between Boston and Skegness, drop in to the Bricklayers Arms, near Old Leake - the grub is super, smashing, great as Jim Bowen would say

Did you get stuck behind any spud tractors on that stretch of road Rod?

Not 'alf - and I've rechristened it "the road of a 1000 corners" - I don't think the steering wheel was ever pointing straight ahead once in 16 miles.

Cool

Managed to get the painting of the decking finished before it rained.
Once the rain stopped I had to move the bird feeders as one of them was covered in snails, the feeder was tucked into a tree and the little blighters were all over it.
