Thanks for the heads up John and I do hope YOU all enjoy it as life has once again conspired against me to ensure that I am "otherwise engaged".
SWMBO doesn't seem to realize just how difficult life will be without all of those essential things that I really need. She wasn't impressed though when I couldn't remember what essential items I bought last time or where they were to show her. I just wish she wouldn't ask such difficult questions so early in the morning when I'm concentrating on planning the vital machine I need next. Still pondering that surface grinder!
Hope you all have a good time and find just the bargain you need to fill that empty shelf space that is so inviting. I'll look forward to a comprehensive "report" if anyone has the time to post one after.
Best regards
Keith

Peter Hi, yes these are short lived things just like British summers. If you are very, very quick you might catch a quick glimpse of one just after a major "clear out" or as in John's case, yet another extension.
Now a "clear out" is when you.................... never mind if you don't have shelf or floor space you don't REALLY need them, or at least that is what the wife has told me - several times! :-)

However, unlike British summers, you do know that shelf and floor space does exist somewhere (even if it isn't in your immediate vicinity).

Not at all Tony, with British summers they certainly exist but the sun is just locally obscured by clouds and rain and stuff. Just like shelf and floor space really which are merely obscured by lots of "useful one day things" and of course the odd "can't live without" item. :-))

Hmm... 'top quality tat'. This is turning into uk.rec.sheds. We'll be banging on about pork pies and Newcastle Brown next.

Please don't lower the tone you will be asking us to wear flat caps next and get our hands dirty like some common oik. I don't have a "shed" but wouldn't dream of spending the evening in the workshop unless correctly attired.
Black Tie, a taste of D. J. Haggett's Chicken and Asparagus goes well with a glass of 2004 Ch=E2teauneuf-du-Pape, Le Vieux Donjon.
One needs to take care though, a couple of glasses and what do you know the bally lathe ceases to be accurate. If it was the dog I'd have to empty the trusty Purdy into it, teach it a lesson. What Oh!
Then again down here in Wales, a pork pie and a glass of Ale goes down well.

Apologies to James Purdey and Sons for my freudian slip, too much wine I fear. The other Purdy was a good friend of John Steed I believe.

No. Certainly not. Not unless it has been moved North of Shropshire, I wouldn't.
Any way, I didn't say there was anything wrong with these foodstuffs, though as you ask, I think Newcastle Brown is a horrible industrial chemical.

Here too, though I wouldn't give Nukie Brown to the horses, nor even the stable lad.
What I meant was that these things at one time took up nearly the whole of .uk.rec.sheds.
Got to go. Need to see if the butler has pressed my white overalls properly and put out a fresh pair of kid machinists' gloves.
