Another good show, well done Brian, etal.   :-)).

1. Satnav stopped working and I can tell you, the Highways agency are having a real laugh at us or they don't
   want anyone to go to Lincoln! I missed my turning by 10 miles, turned onto the A57 which is a small road which
   passes through villages, village ponds,, a 30p toll bridge, fields, back gardens, no-mans-land and over a rope bridge!
   I had thrown away the old satnav cellulose pulp derived printed backup system (Map) many years ago  and my Nokia
   mobile phone satnav is next to useless. Good thing the old 'Sense-O-dircetion' v1 still works!

2. Bob (Young at 70) is a great person and although he was hiding it well, you could see he was real cut up about losing
    such a close companion, we feel for you Bob. Thanks for the chat and lunch, top bloke! Glad to hear you got home OK.... eventually!

3. Great to meet up with some Mayhemers, share a mince pie and pit real names & faces to internet pseudonyms!

4. I saw quite a few goods going out the door so i hope the traders were happy.

5. Got chatting with Tom Gorman, he starting telling me about a book he was writing, a sort of autobiography - his stories left
   me jaw dropped, almost dropped to the floor!  :o :o :o

5. Picked up Mrs Mayhem & No.1 daughter in Lincoln. Then stopped at Maplins to look for a new satnav. Mrs jumped out into another shop. I got back and drove off. Halfway down the road, No1 daughter says, 'Are we leaving mum then?'

6. Can you repair Tomtom's? Any recommendations for a new (sub£100) satnav?

A very warm and friendly atmosphere, most enjoyable. Glad to have met you Bob but so saddened by your loss, know just how you are feeling - recently happened to us - an irreplaceable companion that gave us so much.
       
              Nice to see you again Dave (Aka No.6) and thank you very much for your help re 'Blackboy' - won't forget the motors for you.

Martin - the pie was nice ...................... but too dry! never did get that cuppa!!!!  {:-{  {-) {-) {-)

              A more than adequate easy to use satnav - the Mio Navman M400, have seen them advertised from £45, got mine last year from Comet £59.00
Hope all goes well tomorrow  :-))
                                                            Regards, Tony.
