Car Tales & Nutribullets

Went to Exmouth yesterday to view an SLK 320 V6 intended as a replacement for Hay's Merc. It was advertised as rust free - you could have fooled me. It had more rust than Hay;s Merc. Total waste of a 200 mile journey!

Stopped off in Budleigh Salterton on the way back for a spot of lunch at a local pub. For the first time in several years I was treated to an English salad - i.e. a bunch of salad leaves with no dressing whatsoever. Utterly tasteless.

As we were entering Budleigh Salterton we spotted a sign for a performance by the Lux Wind Qintet. Hay thought I should apply to join them, presumably playing the fartophone.

The Nutribullet was delivered yesterday (never had anything delivered on a Sunday before - not sure how they managed that). Had a good few hours playing with it - Hay was making hideous green concoctions while I satisfied myself with a banana milkshake. It does work much better than a standard blender, but I discovered you can adapt a standard blender and improve its performance by taking out the blender blade attachment and screwing it to a Mason jar. You get exactly the same result for a fraction of the cost.
