Better try to locate that Chinaman, Steve. Told ya not to misbehave over there! :D

Bummer all round there. But all of those events were out of your control. And, knowing you, you will eat the elephant once again.

Chin up, Mate.

Sorry to hear of your woes Steve but glad I'm not the only one.

I have a freind who has had cancer, a stroke and a heart attack (all before he was mid forties) who describes me as the unluckiest person he knows. I'm not sure that's a title I like but I can certainly empathise with you.

Is the MG an F? If it is then I can relate to the fustration they can bring too.

Looking forward to the sunshine- I'm sure it's just around the corner...

Cheers!

Steve,

I think you've made QUITE enough offerings to appease the luck fairies by now, here's hoping that all your luck from here on in is good.

( I was feelin' sorry for myself with MY run, a bit less so now, thanks to you. )
