I`m OK
I live on my own.
But losing the emporium is hard to swallow. :twisted:
Just bought, and got the area setup for an all singing AC/DC Tig/MMA welder along with a new bottle of pure Argon. :roll:
Looks like I will be using it in the spare bedroom. :lol:

Never try and argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, then beat you based on experience.

Well, not exactly in the post as I had to go and collect it - A Tesla Model 3 Long Range AWD :D
Ah, it drives like a dream! An iPad on wheels!
And the funny thing is that driving around our residential area (keeping to speed limit 30 km/h huh?) is no problem whereas it was with scim and Toyota. The total lack of increasing noise/revs and hearing radio perfectly is just relaxing. But get it on a motorway or other open road and all of a sudden all those other cars which were next to you are half a mile behind!
Yep we have a 100 km/h speed limit now due to nitrogen compounds emanating from industry and farming. So as usual the motorist had to pay. And the electric no emissions too! That's the logic of politics.
Kilometer price is less that 1/5 of the Rav4! I have begun to laugh every time I pass a petrol station.
Now I blame SWMBO for this.
We test drove a load of hybrids, because we do a lot of short trips and hybrid seemed a good idea, but in reality they are a poor compromise. So SWMBO said " Why not an electric car like a Tesla?" I love her!
We went for a test drive and were sold!
Cost not much more than a BMW 2 series active tourer, but so much more car (and performance).
I now have to refer to her as SWMBW - she who must be worshipped!
