I just put this in Google translator and it's rude! :rofl:
Well, I put it in Google translate and it came out as; ' I'd like to purchase a seat where I can see the pianists hands.' Mind you, I don't really trust Google translate.

Paul, you're absolutely right! Chciałbym zakupić miejsce, gdzie mogę zobaczyć pianistów ręce doesn't look anything like że wygląda świetnie, zwłaszcza bez skurwysynem polską! The right letters, but not necessarily in the right order, to paraphrase Eric Morecombe.

I know Google translate is pretty rubbish at grammar, sense, word order and syntax, but it's a damn sight better than my own grasp of the half-dozen European languages I've had to use to send or respond to emails - French, Dutch, Polish, German, Spanish and Portuguese. It must work passably well because the recipients invariably write back in their own language. Possibly an own-goal, but if it oils the wheels of eurozone commerce, I can't complain.

My French isn't bad, but writing it is a bit hit-and-miss and I've also had to read significant tracts of formal text - it gets very tiresome after a while. Far easier to bung it into Google Translate and read it in stilted English. You even get the occasional laugh out of the too-literal translations. Great form of entertainment if you like that kind of thing.

Anyway, about mat's TZD...

Back on track ;-) here are some photos of mine at the ICCCR. It's rare enough to have it clean, but after a going over with a clay bar and polish by Tim, I thought it would be a good idea to get some photos!

Sadly it's back to being covered with mud now...

Lovely car mat, considering how many miles its done and that its an "everyday workhorse" its still in good shape and a "club stalwart".
