    The NE coven might know where these live. They "own" a village. They roam around at will, stop traffic, fight dogs on leads and generally terrorise the inhabitants

    Today they had walked half a mile down the hill onto the green. I pulled over to take a pic and as I was driving away I watched them chase a bus. A lady was cowering in the bus stop

    Goose is gross.

    Very very greasy, which is probably why they sell tubs of goose fat.

    You naughty little minx.

    What have you bought? (by that I mean what colour... I cannot tell the difference in cars, but I can tell the difference in colour!)

    Originally posted by Sunshinemummy

    Shark grey, Picasso c4 I think! all I know is it has wheels, doors seats and it seems a nice drive. It is 7 seats 2 folded away in the boot when not in use., and the modern tech.. I really haven't a clue...no proper key, no handbrake, and 6 gears...
    The car we are now getting rid of - the one where I broke down the other week due to a split fuel pump we had had for nearly 12 years with no problems.

    Annoyingly we went to s at the weekend and over 6 transactions filled the car up ...£60 and as im not going to London unless im called upon very soon we have a lot of fuel to use.
