Happy Birthday.


After his surgery earlier this year to remove a lump; the fat controller has reached his thirteenth year this month.

He is back to his old self, but not  as quick. His age is catching up with him, in the form of arthritis in his front and back legs as well as the occasional absence where he almost stumbles to the floor. This has not stopped  Fozzies enthusiasm for trips out in the “mobile,” now takes a big toll on him the following day, he now spends most of  these asleep. It has also ment that he no longer goes for the long walks which is a shame.

Now raise your glasses! To many more years to come!

Electro Glide.


The world of two-wheel transport is further ahead in the alternative fuel category.  The reason is its a  lighter vehicle to propel than its four-wheel counter part.

 But what I do not understand is the obsession that electric transport has to rely on battery’s that can only be charged with a plug, there by limiting its useability and distance it can travel before recharge. I know this maybe a simple view but why do none of these transport types have the latest solar electric panels as part of their build, to help keep the battery’s topped up. 

A typical drive to work means that you have to sit in standing traffic,  wouldn’t  it be great to think your little electic car is recharging itself  while your waiting in a que!  By doing this you have already extended the distance it can travel and with traffic volumes set to increase we are going to spend more and more time standing still.

A long time!


Since setting up this blog I have not had the time to return until now. I am only able to do this now because it is a bank holiday known as Whitson which also ushers in half term for the kids meaning they get a week off. This used to mean that the drive into work was easer and the traffic much lighter. but now it almost makes no difference.

For a down turn year we have seen our work load go up. Why?  People are hanging on to their money?  Yes!  That’s not always  the case, the way they are spending it is a bit more considered, checking out there options before committing to a course of action.

We are getting more enquiries and from that more work, repair is making more sense over new and now in many cases second hand. It is strange that people do not think that when they opt  for a repair that it is good for the environment.  Lets be honest when you have smashed up your pride and joy all you want to do is get it back on the road as quickly and cost affectively as possible, This is where in an increasing number of cases we are coming to the fore.

Are we a green company? Possible.
