    Oh, I know. Some of them even go about with flags stuck on to their cars. Best thing is just to try and ignore it.

    I took this photo about 3 months ago. When I saw CrisC's signature, I felt I had to post it.

    Thanks for viewing.

    I model myself on Michael Caine (our greatest thespian). Problem is I look more like Klaus Kinski playing Nosferatu... I think I might make that my avatar shot...

    Oh, so English, uuuuuh, so British...

    Ack! EEEEK! No thanks!

    Why does this remind me of "'Come into my parlour,' said the spider to the fly..."???

    (except that I can't, for the life of me, remember which way quotation marks work, at the mo.)

    Rob! I have a wicked cold and I would thank you if you wouldn't give me strange nightmares! Thanks!

    Me!!! I wouldn't do a thing like that. Actually, and getting back on track with photography, this clip shows the wonderful effect of shadows. You know, those things we are always trying to get rid of in our shots.

    The old ones...cute...the new ones too German. There is nothing wrong with being too German but its a bit like putting John Prescott in lederhosen and calling it kitsch and retro. Only young middle class couples who vote Labour would buy them

    Now the Fiat 500....pure Italian quirkiness but sadly adopted in the UK by the meal for one fraternity in Marks and Spencer and the meatball and Dime Bar set from IKEA

    I like Fiats...I like them for breakfast, for lunch and especially for dinner...German, English, who cares...they're fast, agile and fun.

    I've watched both versions of that movie so many times, I think I know the dialogue by heart. It's a must at any big Mini rally and we have one here called the Dragon which draws in upward of 550 Mini's for a weekend of fun and games on a road that is 11 miles with 318 curves...whoohoo!
