I will use the magnet method. Dip a magnet in a cup of oil and see how many ball bearings are picked up.

Me. I'm pretty much finished with w**k of most sorts... for the time being anyway. Next change can we drive to your place and watch you do ours?

I just happen to have a full pint of 3-in-One oil for your next oil change.

While on the thought of oil, and to enlighten everyone's day; here is a good article from Scientific American.

Happy days! You're safely landed and almost home, right? Sounds as if it's been a great trip.

Somewhere I have a picture of the Roswell Walmart with its tall green alien on the front. They do go all out, don't they?

At night the fountain was lit up which made the whole thing a debacle. I don't know if it's still there.

The roundabout is still there..happily, fountain gone about two years ago

I still like roundabouts. I took driving lessons when I first moved to Wiltshire and mastering them was the most exciting achievement. Learning the different road markings was a bit challenging, and handling the wheel as the instructor wanted me to (like an old lady!) made me crazy.

Where is Alconbury?
