  1. I must of missed that particular post. Sent from my SM-G965F

  4. It'll turn back into fossils [emoji28] Sent from my SM-G965F
  5. I can drive for miles without stopping at any red lights. Admittedly the blue lights on my car do help [emoji6] Sent from my SM-G965F
  6. We can hope it will go ahead but given the timeframe and current situations I think a lot of would be attendees would feel a bit twitchy about a big gathering so soon after being basically turned into reluctant agoraphobics. If there is a show this year and all covid based concerns are gone then I'll be there with bells on but we'll just have to wait and see. Sent from my SM-G965F
  7. I think the slowdown of the club is not down to lack of interest but more because less people are driving and therefore are concerned more about their health than whether their car is misbehaving. If you look at the club activity you'll see most posts are in non car related topics. I predict that in a couple of months there will be a surge in posts with titles like - "my car won't start", "my car is filthy" and "my brakes are rusted on" [emoji6] Sent from my SM-G965F
  8. Roast beef and mayonaise with a bit of English mustard mixed in. Chicken and mayonaise with some sweet chili sauce stirred in. Both are my favourites. Sent from my SM-G965F

  10. Some indie Butchers still do the old style items but very rare in Supermarkets. I nearly cry when I see the price of ox tail in Sainsburys, cooked into a proper stew it's delicious. Roasted ox cheek is excellent. I still make my own brawn occasionally and used to enjoy curing my own hams, ox tongue and pickling brisket to make basically pastrami. Never personally liked tripe or chitlings but used to sell loads in the shops. You've never had better chips unless cooked in fresh dripping, used to do pans of the stuff too. Supermarket 'Butchers' have probably never seen a real side of beef or a pig or lamb carcass let alone processed them, to them all meat comes vacuum packed on pallets. I was taught by a real old time Master Butcher in a shop that used to have it's own mini abbatoir attached. Everything was as fresh as possible and I used to take great pride on laying out a window display and dressing whole lamb and pigs for display. Grandfather was a Master Butcher and he used to breed his own poultry and rabbits for his shop & his displays were a wonder to behold. Nowadays people don't want to see where their food comes from, they just want to open a packet and cram it down their necks with no thought to it's origin. Sent from my SM-G965F
  11. It is a real misconception that burgers contain ears, noses and a*holes. I worked for a couple of years in an abbatoir and can conclusively state that these types of tissue DO NOT enter the human food chain in any form. Any non human edible bits are either processed for pet food, colloids (greases, gelatins or lubricating mediums) or destroyed. I was told many years ago that burgers contained feathers, again absolute tosh. Being a qualified Master Butcher in a previous life I know what goes into the human food chain and trust me when I say that while in truth there are some items that enter the food chain that don't look particularly appetising at the start, they are all safe and legal and could not be otherwise. Obviously can't vouch for some other (less evolved) countries. Sent from my SM-G965F
  12. It doesn't tend to be the camera itself. More commonly it's the power cables that cause the problems due to RF interference and mostly from the plug that goes into the car's 12v socket. On a previous car I found I had problems with the central locking not responding. Once I fitted a hardwired power supply (which was properly shielded) the problem stopped. If you really prefer a plug-in supply try adding some clip-on ferrite cores to reduce the RF. Sent from my SM-G965F
  13. They take out the 'F' & 'T' letters. Can't say fairer than that [emoji6] [emoji38] Sent from my SM-G965F
  14. Sounds like a normal flat spot in the map curve. You could probably get the car remapped to remove it. May be worth getting it run on a dyno to see what a tech says. Sent from my SM-G965F
