Re: How is the COVID-19 pandemic affecting you?

Apparently the latest trend theft is catalytic converters, especially on some hybrid vehicles. Cars only parked in a local supermarket car park whilst parents pick up kids from school.

Hats off to all who go to vote. Whatever the outcome, it is a freedom we all live by and are privileged to have but must be so difficult at this time. Long live democracy.

They have some lovely wild growth and flowers ...

worth1 loving the precision. I'm not sure I could differentiate between 3/8 to 1/2 . Although in later years I wish I had your engineering expertise which is why I am loving your grill making.
