Unless they let kids into the local bars at night of course?
You make it sound like we're off to town centre dude....it's one pub (maybe another one if it they take the boards down....ahem! :oops: )
and I suspect the best you'll get is a pint of tepid Castlemaine and grab-a-granny. Not that I wish to put you off or anything....Chances are tho that they will let kids in but they may learn some new words.... :shock:

I shall `she-who-likes-to-thinkI-obey-her-even-though-I-do-but-don`t-like-to-admit-it` and see if she`s working that weekend just as soon as a) I`m feeling brave enough and b) I find a nano-second to get a word in edgeways.

WTF? ----^

Inner pain? The sound of a man picking at scabs? Sounds like the trails and tribulations of owning a 16V followed closely by Bandit sorting the bodywork out every other day?
C`mon Bandit, how DO you get the rust out of your fingernails? :D

Brings back painful memories of when I `mended` my 1.7 n/a BX. When I say `mend` I`d gone to change the fuel filter and managed to puncture the canister, rip off one or two LHM pipes and lose the last 0.5mm of skin I had on my hand.
Oh, how I didn`t laugh :cry:

Ah, I feel that`s where we have a break down of communication and understanding my southern friend.
I don`t `do` fine or adjusting, I do bodging (my recovery truck`s exhaust is now mended with tin foil and duck tape) and hammering and precious little else!

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: Have you put a webcam in my house mate? You honestly couldn`t be closer to the truth if you tried. Some genuine examples from the past:

Mrs Cavmad: Where`s my torch?
Me: Don`t know, I expect the kids have had it.
Truth: I`d sawn it in half and user the body of it to `repair` a Maestro tailpipe.

Mrs Cavmad: Where`s all the `J` cloths?
Me: Oh, the kids spilled their pop and I had to clean it up.
Truth: I shoved them inside a Transit seat which I used her tape to cover with before it went to the auction.

Mrs Cavmad: Where`s my wire wool pan scourers?
Me: What pan scourers?
Truth: They were inside the leading edge of a Fiesta Mk1 bonnet because I couldn`t afford fibreglass and had just enough filler to skim over pan scourers.

Mrs Cavmad: Where`s my `Steps` CD?
Me: Don`t know, but I wouldn`t listen to it if you paid me.
Truth: Blue-tacked to the windscreen of my Transit in a feeble attempt to ward off evil speed cameras.

C`mon Bandit, how DO you get the rust out of your fingernails? :D
What you need to understand here is that "The Holy Bible" was a testiment of mental illness wrapped up in minimal stripped down music.
Once you've seperated the lyrics that Nicky wrote you're left with Richie's beautifully self diagnosed prognosis of his own mental health issues. The whole album was a pre-cursor of Richie disappearing.
Ironically, when Richie vanished all the papers listed the lyrics from "this is yesterday", stating it was his letter of intent, they all missed the fact that all the lyrics to that song were penned by Nicky..... :roll:

Anyhow, nowt to do with cars but i felt a manics history lesson was required. "Everything must go" the 10th anniversary edition is out now! 10 years! I'm getting old, seems like yesterday I was first mesmorised by "A design for life"....
