The days are getting shorter, and the odd frost has already blackened a few things in the garden. Anzac Day appeared to go well. However the pot luck lunch arranged for midday was rather Disappointing as someone said it was cancelled, so of course only two turned up!

Did You Know

South African residents can legally attach small flamethrowers to the side of their cars to provide defense against carjackers. . You can instantly cool down a car that has been sitting under the sun by rolling down the window on one side and opening and closing the door on the other side five to six times. . Bridget Driscoll received instant notoriety when she stepped off the curb and into the history books on August 17th 1896. Mrs Driscoll, a 44 year old housewife, who was travelling from Old Town, Croydon to a folk-dancing display in Crystal Palace, became the first pedestrian in the UK to be killed by a car. She was hit by a demonstration car travelling at 4mph. She died within minutes of receiving a head injury . Your car remote can lose synchronization with the car and become useless if a button is pressed more than 256 times when the remote is out of range. . The ignition on all Porsches is located on the left side of the wheel. This is because back when Porsche was primarily a racing team, the driver could save a fraction of a second by starting the car with his left hand, while simultaneously switching the car into gear with his right hand.
