Hi all, I'd like to just bring to peoples attention the work that the Royal British legion do to support this countries armed forces by providing practical care, advice and support not only to serving members of the forces but also veterens and their families. I know this is not directly ford related so I appologise but I have a lot of family who have been/are still in the forces and I think it would be great to try and help to raise awareness and abit of money for a good cause. The link I'm about to post is for Poppy air fresheners or plastic Poppy's that attach usually to you car bumper. Please show your support for this great countries servicemen and women by purchasing one or the other or both :) http://www.poppyshop...or-the-car.html

Lol plumbers and gas engineers arent the same thing although the jobs do cross at certain points :) basically a gas engineer can do both but a plumber can only do plumbing lol even if they get their gas card they pnly know to fit a boiler and thats about it in general lol. I was quite lucky my ex gfs neighbour was a gas engineer so I was out working with him every weekend and school holiday since I was 14 and then went on to do my apprenticeship with him before moving back up to Scotland
