A show wouldn't be a show without a beer tent. Many of the local tractor folk drive from the show totally spodgered after getting thirsty and finding that the beer tent has a solution. I'm naturally not condoning such irresponsible behaviour, but it is reckoned that the local polises have never breathalysed a tractor driver since the breath test was first introduced in 1967! I can't see that being true, but it's possible, especially as some of the fine upstanding members of our law enforcement community spend lots of time going round the pubs "checking for underage drinkers".
Aye right!
:lol:

While I have never been breathalysed while in charge of a tractor i have been stopped by the police a few times.. once mr plod said ill have to investigate this at the station and get back to you if you have broken the law.. im still waiting to hear from the chap.... although i knew one young lad who drove his tractor flat out through the center of Monmouth and was arrested for speeding.. he got off as the machine couldn't do more than 20mph.. he should have been arrested for dangerous driving or just being a moron :evil:

:shock: Eeeeww! I'm going to assume that the link wasn't intended to be for used sheets of Sainsbury own brand toilet paper at a pound per sheet? :?
Still, at least the book of face doesn't think I'm way abroad today, it's targeted me with the ad mentioned and the, erm, "merchandise" is in Sunderland, only some 70ish miles away as the crow flies.

Now that is much more like the job! Goes to show that the Cayenne wasn't the first tractor they'd produced. :mrgreen:

I'm liking that, I'm also liking this 'ere Catawiki.eu. No problem with looking at stuff and that works for me. As does the fact that the site doesn't appear to come with any attempts to compromise the viewer's security, not like that twitface, spacebook or fiends reinvented, badstarts the lot of 'em. :evil:

:thumbs:


Oh hang on, this damned thing tries to relieve me of money to be able to post, it's nothing to do with the (safe) link to Catawiki, or indeed to any of the dodgy social media:

...Best of it is that the IP shown is static, yet the reasons they refuse to lift the block are that they a) think that you're a web server and b) think that the IP is dynamic, which demonstrates that these arsepieces don't actually have a clue. Be aware of these Sp4mh4us people and do not, whatever you do, pay them as if you do, they will have your money and you'll still have to take alternative measures to be able to post.

This only happens on car-related sites and Maplins. Annoying as Maplins have no shops these days, so their site is the only place to obtain their range of components and consumables. Funny old world, innit.. :|
