  1. Everything is compounding at the moment. I try my best to make the most of the simple things in life; those things that have been around forever, and some that are traditional. Tonight I walked and the full moon was spectacular. In the clear sky I spotted a shooting star, and this was all after having fish, chips and mushy peas after work from a van that stops in the area every Thursday evening. There are fascinating things around us constantly, it may just take a bit of imagination. I hope things pick-up for you.
  2. I have a car nicknamed third gear.
  3. Exotic colour scheme burgundy and cream - I wonder what the price was around that time. Interesting on the South African 333i because they also got the GTV6 with a 3.0 V6 Busso whereas we only got a 2.5 V6.
  4. Just a very distinctive car was the E30. I have a 1:43 model of a Will Hoy Touring Car somewhere. You're not wrong on the prices either; even the 320i and 323i seem to fetch a good price these days. The 323i is fairly rare as well as I think as there were limited numbers as an early run model here. I could be wrong on that, just something I think I have read or been told. I think the charm of the car outweighs the performance even today, and as you say, it was light, you also had great visibility all around the car, and in that straight six, you have purist motoring. A shame it was sold,
  5. Puts the dross you see on roads today to shame. Lovely car especially when unmolested - distinctive exhaust note (stock exhaust). Good picture find.
  6. I agree with your post and echo your concerns because I work in the Aviation/Aerospace sector and can report on similar impacts. Our business sales will have halved compared to calendar 2019 come the end of December. Other than Private Equity buyers looking for good value opportunities largely due to this crisis, as well as the largest aircraft component suppliers, our work as consultants has diminished. When we do sell we cannot sell without a substantial discount in place ~50% in some cases. A few months ago I was given the option to take a temporary pay cut or go on furlough (both op
  7. I'd be getting back in the Ireland shirt. Disgrace.
  8. An excellent description. Just devoured one myself. No shame in doing so in the morning either.
  9. Waking up very early for a long drive away with work only to find your wing mirror has been taken off by a parking or passing driver. I'd like to think this should absolutely piss me off though. The annoyance of having to cancel last minute and the lost sleep really is a pisser. The upside; I was up early, removed the wrecked unit and have ordered a brand new replacement for a mere £43.98 inc. P&P which should be here by tomorrow or Thursday. Still fuming however.
  10. Agree with the above on Milan. Serie A needs a good Milan just to put a stop to all the Juventus domination. Historically they have been the team to do it, and lets not forget in Europe too. Pioli seems to have them positively well-drilled unlike Giampaolo. Samp looking down and out at half-time yesterday but put on a great show in the second half. Bonazzoli again looked unstoppable when he came on. Ranieri has again done a terrific job.
  11. Impressive from Verona in the first of the live games. Fiorentina have got themselves a player in Amrabat. Gollini was at fault for the Verona goal in my opinion. Game 2 is just about to begin. Looking forward to watching Francesco Caputo.
  12. Ashley Young has looked good for Inter as has Candreva of late. Samp have pulled a decent gap now. I was impressed with Federico Bonazzoli's goals this week. Both are worth a watch. Being back on the road for work has put a dent in my Italian football evenings which is a shame. I'm having to resort to YouTube catch-up. That being said, my partner is out all day Saturday so Premier Sports 2 will be fixed on from later afternoon until night.
  13. A sad day for us Aviation enthusiasts with BA's 744s going. I'll miss the fan whirring of those RB211-524s.
  14. I switched the game off at half-time to do some housework. Shameful.
  15. Amazing statistic considering. I read a snippet about him finding the net with a free-kick for the first time in forty-something attempts as well; I suspect that sounds/looks worse than it actually is. I never manged to get as many games in this weekend due to garden centre visits and a day cooking for family. I will await the highlights on Premier Sports early this week for a full catch-up. I did watch Cagliari Atalanta though; Atalanta were not at their best yesterday but it was good to see Ilicic back. He was just starting to find his feet when the game ended. Cagliari impressed as t
