Re: Venomous Snake Show (lots of photos).

We've only got three snakes in mainland U.K. (there are none in Northern Ireland, and none in Ireland). Only one, the Adder is venomous.

Re: Vegetarian joke

I remember reading that you can see the stars during the day, from the bottom of a well. Perhaps you can confirm?

Re: Jensen Interceptor

In real terms petrol was never 'dirt cheap'. I friend of mine had a Jaguar 3.8 in the 60s, but got rid of it because of the fuel costs.

I thought that VW only 'cheated' on the emissions of diesel...

The trouble is that a lot of people mistake 'magical thinking' for 'positive thinking'!
