Alan Morgan should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Regarding the "Wet Wood" thing. Simply look around your local area for "fly tippped" sofas, mattresses etc. Collect them together, then find someone who collects contaminated diesel/petrol from missfuelling errors. Soak the former with the latter, chuck in a flaming Swan Vesta, pile up a few wet logs nearby to feel the warmth and - hey you're doing your bit for the environment...

Would love to see that picture Zef, if you ever happen to come across it.

For those interested in Gilbern cars, and I believe there are few here, the Feb edition of MOG Magazine has a nice article on the history of the marque. Very informative for people like me who knew very little about the brand.

I expect you already have a copy Mike!

Bob, did it mention anything about the last, unfinished prototype? It was bought by an interesting character from Deal who finished it off then drove it across to the Arras classic car show a few years ago. It was his first-ever trip abroad so I thought it was quite a brave thing to do!

I decided a couple of years back that my 1947 solid fuel Rayburn with a back boiler was getting expensive to run on smokeless coal and of course you have to rake out the ash and make it up a couple of times a day.
As we already had pipework and rads fitted I decided to go "green" and had a state of the art electric thermal storage unit fitted for heating and domestic hot water as there is no mains gas in our area and it meant having a propane or oil tank fitted.
We are prone out in the sticks to a lot of fuel oil thieving and I didn't like the idea of a propane boiler so went electric.
Yes it is bloody expensive if you have it going full blast but works well with absolutely no maintenance at all but I only have it set at about 20c and rev up the wood burner at night to be really cosy.

MOG features a different Marque each month Mike, Allard, Standard, Jowett etc. It is more than just a Morgan magazine, and there are some fantastic articles each month by truly great journalist.

Modesty forbids me from mentioning a name.

Noticed some mutterings in the media today about the VNUK ruling .
I thought that the EU parliament voted against it on 22nd Jan last year .

As most people know , it could effectively end all motor sport .

Is it the normal rubbish from the media , or has the EU commission ignored democracy and its own Parliament and decided to bring this in anyway .

So what’s happened since this?

But it will mean that , up until then , everybody will have to get separate insurance for tractors , construction equipment , anything you can ride on including powered invalid chairs , electric bicycles , electric scooters & even segways .

This insurance "thing" has been kicking about since 2014, but will it be implemented ? as I can't imagine how it can ever be policed especially out in the sticks, I would have thought that a lot of the farmers on the continent (especially in my neck of the woods in Spain) don't know what insurance is !!!!!

It appears to be caused by this.

It follows a High Court ruling, following the ECJ judgment, in which a walker sued a farmer who left him paralysed after running him over in an uninsured 4x4.
Following the Supreme Court’s decision it could lead to “a PPI-style claims bonanza”. insured car drivers on the roads will have to “pick up the tab” as their premiums are sent soaring by the amount of claims.

It'll be policed vigorously. It's easier than catching thieves and muggers.

This is a question and advice from the panel.
We have a couple of tickets for the Albert Hall next week to see the Circ de Soleil as some of you no doubt have probably seen. I am a bit apprehensive on going and mixing with huge crowds at the moment in view of what is happening regarding the Corona Virus. Am I alone or am I just being paranoid ?
