    For a while I've been considering posting that the fridges here, have a particularly good sense of humour. I hope I haven't misread the situation.

    Do you remember when all that was printed on the back of exercise books, along with the aviordepois weights?
    7.92 inches in a link (Gunters Chain)
    .......and who could forget forget these little gems of area measurement:


    An oxgang was a viking measure used in the Domesday Book, and was the area of land that an ox could plough in one season. Since oxen were usually used in teams of eight, the area that eight oxen could plough was called a bovate, or carucate. So an oxgang was about 15 acres, and a bovate was 100-120. Just to make it more awkward, parts of England not under Danelaw used the virgate, which was twice the size of an oxgang (because you used two oxen instead of one), and a carucate was then known as a Hide.
    If I can't remember, then it never happened!

    I think that comes from all those years of sniffing Freon,or whatever they call it today.

    V8Ian, and others.

    The first ex always knew when I'd had a lung full of R22.
    She said there was a subtle but distinct personality change V8Ian, and others.

    And having to have good humour to weather the crazy after hours callouts!

    Dear old dad kept a bottle each of methyl chloride and SO2 so us younguns could get a little whiff and know what it it was to run the hell away!

    Neither are good for you.

    i had a HSV,and a 6M 'Fraser" half cabin,with a 200 Yamaha.The boat was fun while we had it,did more waterskiing than fishing.

    Sold them both and got a D2.

    Seems the D2 became more of a money pit than the other two added together

    Bloody smart,weren't we
