A bit of sad news

Adrian Peach, proprietor of the Motorcycle & Outdoor Clothing shop in Matlock Bath died a couple of weeks back.
He'd been ill with leukaemia for some time. A really nice and helpful bloke.

Re: What did you do Today

At work again, since 1pm. All our systems when tits up once more. Hooli, your place hasn't got an opening for a 21yo computer nut looking for a job has it??

Re: What did you do Today

Just been to a wine and cheese tasting evening at the neighbour's (This area HAS changed). It was nice. We were talking about possible things to have at the street party and I suggested a classic car and motorcycle show, which I'd talked about earlier with another neighbour who has a 70s VW camper ...
