Hi guys, thanks for featuring my stuff.
Since you asked, I drive a Peugeot.
And in more Jew news, don't forget Stephen Fry is half Jewish!

Hey, Guys , Excellent List. Talking About The Numbering Of Cars linking to the litre of the car, its much more confusing with trucks, as they have like 500-600 bhp engines as well as having like 15 litre engines.
anywhere great list and glad to have you back.

P.S Jon did you get the photos.

Arghhh ! There's something up with your servers as they're either not available or downloading at 5kbps and saying it'll take 8hrs to download the show.

Curses !! A TOTP drought then I can't get the new shopws when they appear :-(

Grant - Three From Leith said...

I tell a lie - downloading at 0.8kbps. I think the hamster they have running in a wheel to power the servers has keeled over and died....

Grant - Three From Leith said...

Thanks for the mention, guys. Good show too - enjoyed the Kipper or Kippur segment !!
