      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. You Know You're Getting Old When...

    Using the Vehicle Smart app, I've shown him the comparison between his car's MOT history and the Focus. Both 2005, Corsa failed 8 times and 5 with advisory's. Focus 1 fail(indicators not orange enough) and 2 years advisory, both before I had it and both for tyres near limit. I have omitted to tell him I take our cars to my mechanic mate who used to do MOTs about a month before they're due to get anything sorted beforehand
  2. You Know You're Getting Old When...

    Never thought of that!
  3. You Know You're Getting Old When...

    Since when did 16 year old boys listen to anything their old man tells them
  4. You Know You're Getting Old When...

    .... your 16 year old son buys his first car!!! And yes, unfortunately, it's a Corsa!!!
  5. The Number Game...

    It has 182 on the tailfin
  6. Things I Do Like

    I do like the Focus passing it's MOT today Mind you, it's only done 1500 miles since the last one. I only use it to go to work and back with the occasional dump run.
  7. Things I Don't Like

    I don't like that it's electricity tariff comparison time again! Got it down £100 per year so far though.
  8. Things I Do Like

    I do like having this bottle of beer tonight. Seemed appropriate given the weather conditions today
  9. The Number Game...

    I'll see your battleship and raise you a bomber!!!
  10. Things I Do Like

    Don't know why it keeps doing that! I do like getting the international trucking signal known as the armpump from a wee kid this morning. The smile on his face when I sounded the horn was priceless I just wish I had been in my own truck which has a decent horn, however I was in an old Merc whose horn sounds like it was robbed of a 1950s Morris Minor!
  11. Christmas is near with no gift idea!

    As a rule we don't buy each other Christmas or birthday presents, we treat ourselves and get away to a gig etc around our relative birthdays. But last Christmas I did buy a subscription for Mrs Turvey's favourite home magazine, it costs about £18 a year and is on a repeat subscription until she cancels. It's the gift that keeps on giving!
  12. What Is It? Part 2.

    Sorry mate, I had to Google 'mesh wi-fi' so I'm not that much of a techie! We're blessed with fairly reasonable wi-fi coverage (single storey house, router fairly central) the only extras we have are a couple of Poweline adapters(which I rescued from a skip) feeding the TV and an Xbox. Maybe someone else can come up with something more than me.
