Aha , back on topic.  I wonder how many lady "Ship`s Masters" there are. Plenty of female truck drivers and airline pilots.

As a lady driver I find women are more curtious and usually let you out, men tend to sit 2 inches off your  tail pipe especially if you are doing the speed limit >>:-(

 :-)) Hi,Mook, most woman drivers are more polite than their male peers,just that I have come across some really aggressive ladies at the moment shook me, might be an age thing getting a little old in the tooth,Ray. :-)) :-))

There are also plenty of female commanding officers in Navies round the world
so I assume they are good at parking !!

Look up "the Nurburgring Taxi" for a lady driver to admire.   She did the `Ring in a Ford "Transit" for Top Gear some time ago too.

A nice lady, very modest too... We did the 'ring taxi' a few years ago, have to say it was great and well worth the money

sadly this quote from the website
"Note that Sabine Schmitz is no longer one of the drivers"

I reckon my wife could manage the Nurburgring quite nicely  O0

There are no shop windows on it. Give her the green light just before Emmerdale or Coronation St starts >>>>>>>>

As for Mobiles my employer has made it ever so clear that we don't answer the phone whilst driving  <*< My view is you simply shouldn't have a mobile phone on a Golf course.
