    Competition time

    I have decided to offer one of my latest creations as a prize in a competition.

    Entrant must have more than 100 posts and be over 18 or provide proof thier parents to not object to them reciving the prize.

    To win you have to geuss how many miles my Ford Fiesta 51 reg has done next sunday. One geuss per entrant.

    So what do you win. Well it is a swiss army knife modified by me. it is quite small not of any real value as it is not teh best condition but it looks like this.

    Only use sharp knives. Blunt knives are more dangerous.

    A person needs only three tools in life: WD-40, duct tape and a hammer. If it doesn't move and it should, use the WD-40. If it moves and it shouldn't, use the duct tape. If either doesn't work, use the hammer.

    wowsers!

    not one to guess while sozzled... but oh well...

    (and clues about usage, number of cars in house etc are just unfair if we're posting early!)

    63868 (i'm guessing it's a second car that gets decent mileage although you have a main car for longer journeys)


    and thank you... this is cool...

    The penknife can be re-offered on eScouts - I have enough trouble with them in this house already!

    Do you need me to prove my age? Only ask because I was ID'd last night in the pub buying a lemonade!
