    Don’t dump all of those plastic food containers straight into the recycling bin.
    Save a few to keep the nuts and bolts in when you take summat apart.
    Also useful if you have to soak any parts in degreaser.

    Don't waste money on driving lessons, cars, tax, fuel, parts or repairs and buy a bike instead. If you ever need a car, contact someone who already owns one... there's plenty about.

    Went for a long ride along the trails today and the bike got caked in mud. Our hose is unhooked for the winter so it won't freeze, so I filled up the watering can with warm water from inside the house and gave her a good washing (an old rag for the worst of it and then just sprinkled the watering can gently over the grime.) The little streams from the rosette were better than using a bucket.
