Thanks. 177,000 miles, 120,000 of them mine. Clutch bearing burnt out and took the gearbox with it. It was a 54 plate, which made it 11 1/2 years old?

I've moved on now. 12 plate Peugeot 308 SW estate.

Our old friend Rainswept is now drinking at the beer volcano. From his FB page on September 8, 2015: "Heath Beaver had emergency surgery for a detaching aorta. He is currently unconscious. Please see his wall for updates."

All current posts are RIP. :cry:

Phil 'Philthy Animal' Taylor, drummer with Mötorhead, 61, too much rock 'n' roll.

A sad day for the Jack Daniel's Distillery.

I'd never heard Motorhead before. I can't say I like that song very much at all. Maybe it will grow on me, I don't know. Lemmy and two other musicians, one from The Stray Cats I think, I forget the other, recorded a cover album once. It was horrendous, but their version of Buddy Holly's "Crying, Waiting, Hoping" was interesting. I downloaded it from Amazon. It had DRM and I couldn't play it on my MP3 player! :furious:

Hello, all. I've missed you terribly and should not have been away so long. I had come across the news of Black Bart's passing thanks to those of you who have friended me on facebook but I had no idea that Pieces was also gone.

Rainswept has also passed on to the volcano. Far too young.

...closely followed by The Specials drummer John 'Brad' Bradbury, 62

Too much, too young.

May you skank your way to that Beer Volcano in the sky!

Glad I got to catch a couple of the originals and a few new guys during their reunion tour a few years back.
The circumstances of the world are continually changing, and the opinions of men change also; and as government is for the living, and not for the dead, it is the living only that has any right in it. That which may be thought right and found convenient in one age, may be thought wrong and found inconvenient in another. In such cases, who is to decide, the living, or the dead? -Thomas Paine
