Back to the beached car transporter, they have been driving the cars off today so presumably not much, if anything, wrong with them.

The cars were probably safer in there than on the roads hitting potholes, %% %% {-)

Absolute disaster for families of , this time , a Belgium fishing boat. The Morgenster Z85 has gone down in the Channel south of Lydd on the Kent coast. Last time she sent an AIS signal was 13:38 this dinnertime. Lots of boats , lifeboats and choppers searching but its poor weather and it doesn't look good

I think the best sentence for Richard Gatiss would be to turn him loose onto the street with a picture of what he did pinned to the back of his coat. I wonder how long he'd last intact.

  So after he gets his slap on the wrist and possibly costs us the Taxpayers thousands of pounds in drugs and treatment and is cured (as Rickie Tomlinson would say "My A**e") I take it he will get a job and after work look after the victim by doing his garden, bit of painting etc. There is more chance of plaiting fog I know I was a Prison officer for twenty years and, believe me, this toerag will get much more help and assistance from the state than the poor victim. Bring back the Stocks.

There will be an item on Monitor M33 in the forthcoming special issue of Model Boats due to be published next month. The Naval Museum have made some really good photos of the ship at Portsmouth available to me, including some excellent interior shots. The issue will also include a feature plan rewrite of Paul Freshney's article on similar ship M15 originally published back in 2007.

Dear GAZOU.....

I think they try to make fun of Australians >>:-(..snakes alive?....snakes for breakfast?...fried snake & egg roll?.. %)... ..at least the snake ate a healthy breakfast?... {-)

PS...I suspect it was a publicity stunt...................& probably sponsored by Kellog's......who now just happen to be an American owned  >>:-( company

This never would never have happened when the 'Kellog' was Australian  :kiss: ....

Apart from that, Pythons are carnivores' and not herbivores' or vegetarians'......... so just American propaganda!.......:-)).......Derek

Derek,
"Kellog's" has never been Australian, It's always been American, founded by one of two brothers, the other, a nutritionist, ran "Sanitarium".
Have a happy day %)

Sanitarium was founded in Melbourne by Edward Halsey, an American who was a baker at Kellogg's Battle Creek, but who migrated to Australia in 1897. Sanitarium Australia and Sanitarium New Zealand are 2 separate companies, but they work together, they are both wholly owned by the Seventh Day Adventist Church. Because they are owned by a church the companies pay no income tax, something that has been severely criticised by their competitors.
