1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    I've not noticed it with regard to iPhones but have heard many non-Apple tablets being referred to as iPads though.

    My dad still calls it the electric light company, which is quaint.

    The parts bills certainly aren't. My uncle had an XJS RS-R - a rather exotic beastie, that was featured in a couple of books on the history of the marque - and he spent over £40k in 5 years. That said, some of that was devoted to getting the car to handle better, reach insane speeds, and doing things like putting a manual gearbox conversion in.

    Mine is an old X type, so more Mondeo than Jag, but still one of the nicest cars to drive around in that I’ve owned. The only other car that lives fondly in the memory is my P6 3500S Rover. Loved that car, but then I had it when the 18 yards to the gallon that it did wasn’t so prohibitive.

    Don’t really know their source, they just appear on my desk periodically. I suspect aliens.

    They still are at MikeMA Mansions, except when it's a GTech Hoover, when it's referred to simply as a GTech so as not to confuse it with the Miele Hoover. We've never actually owned a Hoover Hoover. Dyson Hoovers are not allowed on the premises.

    I never say hoovering, I vacuum. I have a Kirby, which is a good excuse for my wife to never vacuum; she says she can't lift it!

    In the old days, instead of sending a message from your iPhone, you'd have written a note with your biro.

    We use a hover. Open all the widows and blow the dust out. Might explain where that bias weight for the Aro went...and the cat.
