    I started life working for a telecoms company working on the public exchanges - chances are if you've made a call you've used my software. I then went into higher education for 28 years as an associate professor until I retired. I now run a cattery with my wife.

    The 65th of 64?

    Not necessarily - my Sport 350 is number 45 but only 42 were made for the domestic market. Some numbers weren't used (e.g. 13).

    Future of Lotus

    I can watch TV on my ICE in my car - standard equipment. The only requirement is that the driver must not be able to see it whilst on the move. It has a very clever screen that displays different things depending on the angle you are viewing. So the passenger can see the TV while the driver is seeing the satnav. When stationary the screen allows the driver to view the TV. Once above 5mph it switches to the dual mode.

    Retirement activities

    All done That photo was some weeks ago. Just a few finishing things to do i.e. leading the joint between the conservatory and the house. Also having a new glass roof in part of the conservatory that is currently tiled. We will find out what sort of job we have done on Friday !

    Retirement activities

    A quick calculation worked out that we had 11,000 tiles on the roofs. We have four at normal level and two at lower level. A further calculation worked out that on the main part of the house (the bit in the picture) there were 4 tonnes of tiles. There were 11 tonnes in total.

    Retirement activities

    So what do you get up to when you retire? Here is what I have been doing. Yep - reroofing the house. It was an old lath and plaster (minus the plaster) roof so needed doing. Also repointed chimneys while we were up there. You get a good view from up there: North East South West
  8. There is an ECU diagnostic connector behind the glove box (to connect diagnostic tools) as well as one next to the battery in the boot. I think the other connector is the ABS diagnostic port.

    What made you UNHAPPY today!

    We have a pool but ours is indoors in our conservatory so can use it even if it's raining. They don't cost as much as you think to run - ours is heated to 31.5degreesC using an air source heat pump.

    Work pension

    I retired at 55. I had a private pension which I crystallised and took the 25% (about £92,000) . It is now in a draw down pension which I haven't started to draw on yet. I could have a pension of about £11,000 a year if I started to draw on it now but I don't need to so will let it grow.

    I'm just up the road from where Advantage bought his. If anyone wants me to pop in and discuss anything with them - happy to do so.

    I have a wheel for my PS4 and it can also be used on a PS3. There is a switch on it to select the appropriate console.

    Paypal or Izettle card reader?

    They do portable ones - like the ones in restaurants.
