Just the job on a cold misty morning, somewhere to get a nice cuppa

Happy New Year, Peter. I look forward to many happy hours in your company with the rest of Delta's crew.

Cheers All,

Bob.

HNY all. "Another year over, and a new one just begun." Alas my tea maker is still asleep so it looks like I'll have to get up and make my own.

Grant were you just getting up or falling into bed at 0430 (Tapatalk time)? Respect!

Talk about respect what about Michael Crawford. Happened to watch that sports relief scetch yesterday . Funniest TV I have watched in a long time . Thought I was pretty fit at 64 but he did all the stunts and is 74. Try and watch it if you can . I'm of on my new racer now for a few miles . There is a Classic Csr Meet at Hartley Witney will pop over and have a look .

I was beginning to think I was the only one round here who had managed to see the New Year in!

The weather hasn't changed much with the arrival of 2017 - it is currently 0 degrees & everything is still white with frost, as it has been for several days. Last night it went down to -5, but none of that was enough to deter the 500 or so hardy souls who took the annual New Year dip in the North Sea near Dunkerque this morning. Were you there, Iain?

Just to continue a thread from last year...
Mrs V & I are spending a few days in Cornwall (back home tomorrow, back to work on Tuesday). Yesterday we took the dog for a walk along the Camel Trail near to Bodmin, and were lucky enough to catch sight of this again (this time Mrs V got pictures!).

Then we returned to The Hole in the Wall for a nice pint...
What is it about steam trains that we of a certain age find so appealing?

Because they, like cars of the 50's, have character, unlike most modern creations.
You know a friend of mine claims he can tell the difference between a Vauxhall Astra and a Mercedes S Class without looking at the badge. Naturally I don't believe him.

The worrying thing is we've just discovered that our 23 year old son who was left back at base "to look after things" had a party last night which also included fireworks. I'm more than a bit worried what state the garden will be n when we get home...
