  1. I now know why the cat refused to leave the kitchen last night. https://www.walesonline.co.uk/news/wales-news/advice-issued-pet-owners-after-17999330 It was socially distancing itself from any human contact It was increasing its social distancing as it has always refused to be a lap cat, only touches a human when it needs food and food isn't coming, but normally seeks the comfort of a duvet for night time.
  2. I hope you & the rest of the family are OK. It does ease, as time goes on.
  3. The Lotus Esprit ALDL isn't OBDII compliant, so it's not a case ofvsimply needing an adapter lead.
  4. I noticed several jet trails in the sky the other evening, so there are flights, but how many of those are cargo? At the local airport (Nowich, a rather small provincial one) we have quite a few British Airway jets parked up, I guess it's cheaper to park them there than at the airports they normally fly from.
  5. Not you but must be one of your colleagues, hope that officer is OK. https://www.edp24.co.uk/news/crime/jail-for-woman-who-coughed-in-police-officer-s-face-1-6583008 ....12 weeks imprisonment after pleading guilty to being drunk and disorderly in a public place, criminal damage to property and common assault of an emergency worker, at Norwich Magistrates Court....
  6. I believe it even comes in a purpose-made dispenser, i remember it from what seemed way too many scenes in "All creatures great & small".
  7. Exchanged texts with Mike at Lotusbits today, they are still at work so may still be shipping, depends whether they have what you need on the shelf.
  8. Also, the smaller wheels mean the torque of the motors (which decreases with speed) will have been lower with smaller wheels than the same car could have produced on stock wheels for the same speed (once it got past the speed where torque is still virtually 100%). If you base it on the graph, then torque drops (once past that 100% point) and drops at such a rate that you still get less power at higher speeds that at slower speeds. So, the Tesla must have been operating within/close to its 100% range. https://www.carthrottle.com/post/how-do-electric-vehicles-produce-instant-torque/ This thing for bigger rims was driven by the fact that higher sidewalls start to let go of the tarmac a lot sooner than lower profile tyres when forced sideways. The trouble is that people take that to mean that lower profile is better, when what really happens id the lower profile maintains it's grip for longer but when it lets go, it lets go in a big way, compared to higher side-walled ones that are more progressive and still maintain a bit of lateral grip even when sliding. So, people thought lower profile = better, and to keep the same rolling diameter they fitted bigger wheels, now we are at a stage where we seem 4x4 with low profile tyres and wheels that look like they are based on a penny farthing front wheel.
  9. Might I suggest that a lack of sanitising liquid be taken into consideration before any contact.
  10. Oh, I thought they ran at anything and headbutted it.
  11. Has Dyson got the manufacturing facilities to make these since most of their manufacturing appears to be done in Asia?
  12. Don't forget to make driving noises as you sit in it.
  13. It seems Rwanda are just leaving it to the wildlife. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/live/world-africa-47639452?ns_mchannel=social&ns_source=twitter&ns_campaign=bbc_live&ns_linkname=5e7b27b82940ec06703e166a%26Rwandan who breached lockdown ‘killed by crocodile’%262020-03-25T10%3A33%3A55.582Z&ns_fee=0&pinned_post_locator=urn:asset:09396da6-be39-4a70-925e-576bab976fae&pinned_post_asset_id=5e7b27b82940ec06703e166a&pinned_post_type=share .....A man in Rwanda who breached the ongoing lockdown to reportedly go fishing has been killed and eaten by a crocodile, the mayor of the southern Kamonyi district has told the BBC.......
  14. And off-licenses are now one of the essential shop types.
