It's not every xmas I get to walk on the beach. That's been a nice change. Past couple of nights I've been playing Yahtzee with my Mum, which has been good fun

I did a kart meeting at Cadwell Park in , early 70s ? . Possibly March time so around the first meetings of the season .
When we got there the track had about 3 inches of snow coverage .
They had snow ploughs do a few laps , rock salt gritters , then asked everybody if they could do some laps in their road vehicles .
The track was ready to use & not bad at all by mid/late morning & there was a good days racing .

Where was the beach? Up here it was a very chilly start to the day but warmed and we had a beautiful sunset which I was going to photo and post on here but the phone had run out of battery.


Never played Yahtzee but it sounds similar to a dice gam some american friends taught us called Farkle played with 6 dice. Combinations have different scores. Very fun game and gets noisy if drink involved.

Yes Yahtzee is a dice game with 5 die

We went for a blast in MiniMM's "Rex", took in a bit of the glorious countryside we have on our doorstep without having to get cold.

Today has been an indoors day, there was a great documentary on Netflix about the real story of Le Mans '66, enjoyed it immensely.

I went for a walk, however some friendly passing strangers found out where I lived and led me back home.

Well I'm back indoors and guess what ! the brake lights on my old Pug 406 estate have come back on !! This is totally ridiculous as all the fuses that are involved with the 3 lights I actually took out the other day so that I could use it.
Also if I turn the engine off with my foot on the brake pedal the engine continues to run until I release the pedal! This is a complete mystery and nothing on the internet is helping with a cure as people will just say the obvious things. I am now wondering if it is an ECU fault somehow but having pulled the fuses I can't see how it can. Studying the wiring loom on Autodata doesn't reveal anything either. It would appear that a feed that is live when the ignition is off is somehow connecting to the lights.

Disconnect the two battery wires then connect the pos to the neg during fifteen minutes. During this time, hunt any ground and clean it. Check the connector located under the foot rest. After that? Bin it!

Bit of a unusual one . But on some cars with a ABS system , there is a constant live to the ABS unit . It is possible that water in the unit is feeding a supply back to ign & brake light circuits .
Ignore this if you do not have ABS.
