  1. Lee could you be hearing shotguns from the range in Worsley? As the crow flies not that far away.
  2. I went to Dawlish at the end of May seven or eight years ago. When I arrived for my holiday the temperature was 11c. Yesterday, the shortest day was 13c. Incredible!
  3. Can anyone answer what might be an obvious question? The Sun is a big nuclear reaction. It has shone for billions of years because it is a nuclear reactor and this doesn't use much fuel. However every 5 days on average there is a CME ( Coronal mass ejection). According to Wiki t he average mass is 1.6×1012kg of material ejected. How can this be? I wouldn't know how to do the maths but why hasn't the Sun used up all of its mass many millions of years ago? Brian.
  4. When my dog was about 6 months old I was walking him and my older dog past a local church. At a certain point my pups hackles raised and he wouldn't take his eyes off an old gate which is not used and now fronts a field. I had to pull him away as he was rooted to the spot.

    Car advice

    I find this website very useful. It shows all car manufacturers reliability on a sliding scale and it breaks down the faults. For example a "normal" car will have an index of 100. A more reliable car will be lower and a less reliable car more than 100. It is very surprising to see certain models have a terrible record. Check out the Bmw X3. http://www.reliabilityindex.com/reliability/search/283 Another great website is Honest John.http://www.honestjohn.co.uk/carbycar/ Brian
