Car Sold!!!

After my car died, I was advsed to try to sell it through Autotrader. I hadn't thought anyone would be interested in a car without an engine, but I can honestly say that of all the cars I ever sold, I have had the most interest in this one. Over 10 calls on Thursday, about 6 on Friday, none Sat/Sun (Christmas/Boxing Day) and a few more Monday.

A man came from Newry to pick it up today, and thats it gone ;)

New Car

I had a friend go out and buy me a car. Its a Rover 45, and I'm not really sure about it. But anyhow its cheap, and according to the specs, pretty fast.

Notting Hill (1999)

I was surprised by Notting Hill. I've seen this before, and remember it in the same category as 4 weddings... but it's really not there. There are several side splitting scenes, not to mention the SWMBO factor too.

S.W.A.T. (2003)

S.W.A.T. (2003) a film about the Special Weapons and Tactics team in LA (everything exciting seems to be happening in LA)

An interesting watch, a few punches to pull, worth a watch, but really just a standard action film, with a better than average story.

The Pianist (2002)

I've just finished watching The Pianist (2002). Its about a Polish Jewish musician who struggles to survive the destruction of the Warsaw ghetto of World War II.

Very graphic in its portrayal of the German treatment of the Jews in the war. Not a brilliant film, a few extra points because it is true, but I would recommend a watch, just to see how good we've got it!

It makes me appreciate my freedom.

Car is dead :(

Coming home today I pulled out to overtake, and bang, I had to pull in again.

Upon inspection the bottom pulley which drives all the belts (inc timing) had come off - not good!

The AA towed me home, and it looks like I'm going to need a new car :(
