I turned up for an eye test this morning...at the wrong store... :laugh:  Guess it was more urgent than I thought! :lol:

I can't stand this heat myself, even with both windows down it's too hot for me, but I do like the ice cold AC in this weather...even if it does knock the MPG a bit!

I don't even want to go out. AC isn't working so forget going anywhere 😭. Hopefully today will check the AC compressor to see if the clutch burnt out causing the smoke. If so might get a second hand compressor. There's a place in Wickford who look to break only fiestas and they have a compressor which I might get if that is what went on mine.

Hopefully your not like my dad who is scared to go for his diabetes eye test. He needs someone to take him as they put drops in his eyes (I believe to dilate the pupils) however that causes things to seem very bright. Luckily when I took him last week they said all was good

I had $81m just before the update dropped and I still have $73m. The penthouse cost me about $5.8m but I didn't add the media room which would have pushed the cost upto $6.5m. 
$40m is a good safety buffer for money on the game. 

I bought the Sentinel classic a long time ago and put it in classic BMW race livery. I also own a few Ford vehicles in the game including the Mk1 escort (Vapid Retinue) and the Flash GT (based on a Fiesta, Focus and Golf). 
I have over 50 cars in the game now plus several aircraft and a few bikes plus lots of properties.

I had a few duplicate cars. Last update the elegy retros I had in one garage were reverted back to the normal elegy and yesterday the ones in my office garage the gold paint was taken off. I don't sell these cars every day but once every 2 - 3 days if I'm playing so nothing flags up. I do still have a collection of deluxos and vigilantes in the office garage 🤣

Rockstar really want people to buy their shark cards

Lol, hopefully it's not too expensive to repair whatever it is!  Compressors are easy to change but don't forget you'll need to have the gas removed before unbolting any compressor pipes if it is that at fault rather than a gas leak. 

Totally off-topic but my Dad's first house was in Wickford lol. :smile:

It's been 11 years since I had an eye test so yeah I was pretty scared tbh lol, didn't really know what to expect and I hate anything medical.  It didn't help when the optician called the first test a pressure test...as someone with a background in engines I was expecting them to pump something into my eye to check for leaks... :laugh:  Turns out it's just some puffs of air in your eye while the computer scans it, although I'm so jumpy that it took ages to get them as I kept jumping at the air puff noise lol.

I didn't have to have that eye drop test luckily, I would have hated that, I think that is just for diabetic people though, I certainly don't envy your Dad having to have it done.

Lol I was thinking Wickford might be a familiar place to you as I don't think its far from you. Yeah that was what my dad was saying about the gas. We might call the guy who did the regas to ask if it's possible for him to remove the gas whilst my dad replaces the compressor (if that's needed) then putting the gas back in. That smoke I mentioned went away just after I switched the AC off so I just hope that the smoke was caused by the compressor rather than the gas leaking out.

It's about twice as far from me as it is from you in miles lol, but because of traffic and speed limits it works out about an hour from either of us.  I collected my first set of alloys from Wickford back in 2009, set of GTi6 alloys for my base spec 1.4...  :laugh:  Hated the drive there though...that was only my 3rd 'long' drive I think, the previous two were one to my Great Aunts just a week after I'd passed (must have been mad, not been able to do it since!) and one to Freeport Braintree which again I haven't been able to do since.

My Dads side of the family all came from around there, my Great Aunt still lives about 10 minutes away...feel free to pop in and check on her for me lol!  

Yeah the AC guy should be more than happy to recover the gas and put it back in for you aferwards. :smile:

@TomsFocus looks like you got some bids on those focus alloys you have. Just a shame you couldn't sell them for a nice price but you never know near the end

Just got worried I'd left the auction running then lol!  I've ended it, they sold yesterday via Facebook Marketplace. :smile:

Didn't get anywhere near their value imo but needed them out of Nans garage so let them go to the first reasonable offer in the end, the guy messaged me at 9am and collected at 1pm same day.  It wasn't really worth swapping them and saving them when I sold the Mk3 Focus but at the time I thought I might buy another one.

I do like that it's not as hot and humid here as the rest of the majority of you seem to be getting! 😎

 

My weather station showing temperature of 20degrees with a 10-15mph breeze. 

 

Having to rehydrate though, just to make sure.

It's the deluxe edition of Detroit: Become Human too and it includes some artwork and the soundtrack. 
Yes, it does include Heavy Rain too but that had already been a PS Plus game a few months ago.

Thanks mate, I used to have a bit of time on sundays to be on the playstation either on my own or with the kids, 

But since getting the pupon 18th July its like another baby; I haven't saw a minute of television or anything just working and out in the garden watching him and Rewarding when he goes toilet in the correct locations, 

Cant even walk him in public until he gets second injections in August 

He also has social anxiety where he doesn't like being alone at night but a hot water bottle has worked well last night; he only cried at 1am and 5am instead of every hour. 

But he has to learn and hes in a training cage during the night; it's the size of a euro pallet in the kitchen; not outside yet until second injections just around the walled in back garden which is 280ft long by 20ft wide 

Very very pleased too fantastic with the kids the temperament is excellent full of love.

@Lenny could that explain why you were awake at 5 in the morning 🤔. Do try and at least download the game for later on when you get time. It's an offer they are doing for just July.

I do have a PS4 but it's broken due to the extreme heat as it was a PS4 pro. 
I also usually only add family members due to anxiety issues.

I don't think I'm the type of person to give someone anxiety 🤣. But probably be the best person who'd help you out in Gta 👍. However I like to just play in a solo public lobby as its less stressful and rage inducing. 

To be honest though I've had some bad experiences of random friends I had. I once added someone as they had the same name as me. Got along a little, found that he was three years younger than me. Once he said he'll put mods on my account on modern warfare 2 back in the day so gave him my details. He said I was lieing so just left it. A few months later I got a notification saying someone else is using this account and it signed me out. Luckily managed to get my account back by changing my password. Next day after he told me which seemed in a selfish way he was the one who went on my account. Quickly deleted him from my list and left him. One of his school friends I had told me how he'd bully him which shows just how bad that guy is plus having the same culture as someone doesn't mean you trust them.

Personally in regards trust; I spend six days  per week working with a total of twelve people and I don't trust any of them in all categories.

Some I wouldn't tell them what time I'm taking a tea break, others I go for tea along with but and know where I live aswell as how many kids I have and there ages; but I wouldn't tell them when my house is empty for example; were all going to Dublin after work.

Terrible to say but the way the world is; you can never 100% trust anyone to know almost everything as the old saying goes "lose lips sink ships"

You must be good at GTA!  I get about 1 friend request a year on the Xbox through CoD... :laugh:  I don't allow any of them though lol.  I don't play with a mic, it's surprising how some people will go to so much effort as to type a message to tell me how bad I am at the game... :lol:

I'm the same, only allow 'necessary' information even with family members.  It's so easy to accidentally say the wrong thing to the wrong person so the less anyone else knows, the better imo.

Sometimes I just get a random friend request. Back when I was busy with uni and hop onto PS4 say after a month I see that I got a friend request which is funny as I wasn't playing then to come across people that want to add me. Only explanation I have is I'm possibly still rank 1 in Driver San Francisco online so people who see me on there try to add me.

I'm actually going to put a DuraTile floor down in the garage before the Autumn and I wouldn't be using the Caterham during the Winter anyway. It's the running in next Spring I'm not looking forward to...

Are you going to get it PPF'd? Might not cost much as its not a large car. Only thing I could think of running in an engine is not flooring it out of temptation 😬
