  1. Interestingly I have a friend who works in a hospital whose job it was to get the stats. They record every death of a person who has tested positive for COVID as a death with COVID. They had one person arrive from a serious road traffic accident who died but had tested positive for COVID so was counted in the stats.
  2. I re-roofed our house myself (well me and a friend). The original roof was lath and plaster (minus the plaster!) so we felted, re-lathed and then re-tiled. Also repointed and flaunched the chimneys. New lead and facias as well. Took us a couple of months working every day and I worked out that we moved around 11 tonnes of tiles!
  3. I have the build register for the Sport 350. There were 42 official Sport 350's in the UK plus 8 for the US market (actually normal V8s made to look like 350s. The UK 350 had a different chassis and body and they would need to have done crash tests to import them into the USA). There were also 4 cars made as track cars for Japan. Car number 0 was actually a normal V8 that was then converted into a Sport 350 by engineering. So the total is 54 cars (42 UK + 8 USA + 4 Japan) and 1 engineering built car.
  4. Did our roof myself (with the help of one other who knew what he was doing!!) Saved a lot of money on labour
  5. Definitely in the garage. In fact my insurance insist on it - must be in a locked garage between 10pm & 6am when at home postcode. Although this is probably the best place to keep it!

  9. Yep looks like that - you need to extract the files first.
  10. Ace reporting there! "Shocking footage posted anonymously online shows the driver clock over three times the 70mph limit while appearing to drive with one hand." 3 times the 70mph is over 210mph - the clip shows only 201mph.
  11. I am a governor at a secondary school and have been in regular contact with the head. Indeed we held a governor's meeting last week viz Zoom. Our school has been delivering online learning from the beginning and EVERY child in the school has had a phone call every week to check on them. There are some teachers who take their responsibility seriously!
  12. Jensen's were made in my home town. Used to regularly see them being test driven down our road. My wife's uncle was a maintenance engineer at the factory.
  13. Here's one of mine that I had when I was in my 20's
  14. The first Monday in May isn't a bank holiday they have moved it to Friday to coincide with VE day.
  15. Yes although we get 100% small business rate relief so don't actually pay anything. We do get a NNDR (National Non Domestic Rates) bill each year which shows what we should pay and then has the rate relief applied so the total owing is 0.
  16. Just received £10,000 from the government No I am not a politician but a small business who has received the small business grant.

    Our little man has had a rough week. Had to rush him to the vets on Monday. He had an emergency operation. He had a bowel intussusception - had part of his bowel removed. It was touch and go for a few days but he seems to be recovering well.
  18. Hand Sanitiser..... We currently have 15 litres of the stuff
  19. Actually closing speed is 100mph as the speed limit in the A38M is 50mph.
  20. Hmm So the national grid can cope with lots of BEV charging? This is currently powering our house and cattery and has been doing so since Sunday
  21. Tis indeed my car taken on the car park of the Pondarosa Cafe in December 2008 as Bibs said for a magazine shoot.

    This is our boy Flint - just over 1 year old.
  23. We have an air source heat pump that heats our swimming pool. Keeps the water at a nice 31.5 degrees. Doesn't cost a fantastic amount to run. Has an automatic defrost cycle so just turn it on and leave it. It also controls the pool pump so turns the pump off when the desired temperature is reached. Then turns it on once an hour to check the water temp.
  24. Modern Classics magazine have an edition out now with my Sport 350 featured alongside a TVR Tuscan and Aston Martin DB7. They have the following prices quoted for the Esprit Sport 350: Concours - £65,000 Good - £60,000 Usable - £55,000
