    But you were around when Moses was born.

    The other day my wife told me not to give her measurements in metres, cm or mm but , feet. yard, inches and parts thereof. She is the president of the local woodworkers guild. Not for long though by the sounds of it because getting things done is like hearding cats.

    I was actually working as a cashier at the chamgeover. Suddenly the job got a lot easier....I was used to working to 3 decimal places in the workshop at home so only having to work to two places at work was piss-easy.

    The tools in the box needed to handle working on bikes got a bit easier after Mike Sinclair got involved. First visit to Yamaha with Kenny, he handed the chief designer one of those 3 legged socket things - 8, 10 and 12mm sockets. Said to the guy that he wanted to be able to perform all the usual raceday jobs on the bikes with this...major rationalisation of fastener sizes on Yamahas, followed by other brands too.

    Never noticed. They're all cunts.

    Nobody wanted to take up the position so Connie took it on. As I said it's like herding cats. Too much talking and no action. A bit like KB really.
