Indeed - and I naturally add to the seasonal chorus of good cheer. May your big end survive the forthcoming festivities intact!

I have two local events to attend, the WSEC crank up on 27th and the Bristol club crank up on NewYears Eve. Are you pulling an engine shivering into the winter light?

Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low stress, non-addictive, gender neutral celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practiced with the most enjoyable traditions of religious persuasion or secular practices of your choice with respect for the religious/secular persuasions and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all.

I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted Gregorian calendar year 2007, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make our country great and without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith or sexual preference of the wishee.

By accepting this greeting, you are accepting these terms: This greeting is subject to clarification or withdrawal. It is freely transferable with no alteration to the original greeting. It implies no promise by the wisher to actually implement any of the wishes for her/himself or others and is void where prohibited by law, and is revocable at the sole discretion of the wisher. This wish is warranted to perform as expected within the usual application of good tidings for a period of one year or until the issuance of a subsequent holiday greeting, whichever comes first, and warranty is limited to replacement of this wish or issuance of a new wish at the sole discretion of the wisher.

Most of my engines are shivering in the winter light outside in the garden anyway - at least until I get the shed finished ;-).

I will be dragging something out on the 27th for the charity Christmas Crank-Up at Riccall in North Yorkshire (Post code YO19 6QR in streetmap) - loads of engines, a vintage ploughing match, and the usual Yorkshire warm welcome with plenty of hot soup and stew. Hope to see a few list contributors there?

Best Christmas wishes to all and a Happy and Prosperous New Year!

May I also wish all the regulars and lurkers a very Merry Christmas-I've actually managed to get an hour down in the shed before being summoned to the main business of the day :-)

Best regards to all.

Bit of a late reply to this one, but our (the supremely lackadaisical Northolt Historic Engine Club) new year's crank-up was held over a couple of hours this Sunday lunchtime. Powered atendees amounted to me with the Maytag twin, 'the lads from Heathrow' with a nice 1 1/2 hp Petter M and 'Lurch' with a selection of small hot fog devices.

It was the Maytag's first proper run since fitting new main bearings etc, but it puttered away happily for the duration hardly missing a beat and proved pretty frugal on fuel - I ran it for another hour or so at home afterward to use up the litre of 32:1 I had mixed. There was a slight hint of tightness when I switched off which I initially put down to the new mains, but on inspection it seems the flywheel magneto pole pieces are just scuffing the coil laminations. The book says there are supposed to be ovesize fixing holes to allow adjustment, but the screws seem to be a pretty snug fit on mine - I'm sure a little work with a drill will rectify matters.
