Don't think the wildlife photographers will be losing too much sleep, but this is as near as I'll ever get to a half decent photo of a grey heron.

Hull?

Could SO easily be Hull.

But no.

Hull has a mighty fine bridge, it must be said.

Easy answer to that - it's about role models, world class opinion formers, people we respect.

When we see those guys driving a TESLA, of course we want to follow, to emulate them, to wear their shoes.

More seriously, as to TESLA, I'm not actually sure if it is an Emperor's new clothes thing to be honest.

TESLA might just be the automotive answer to an iPad or whatever, or it could be pie in the sky - it's hard to tell.

As chance has it, I recently read a biography of Elon Musk, & I'm even more twixt and between now, he might be a genius, or he could be a complete fraud.

I know one thing though - I trust him about as much as I trust Richard Branson, and he'd struggle to sell me a sticky bun in Las Vegas.

Would YOU trust a man who named his children like this?

Damian

Xaviar

Griffin

Kai

Saxon

Nevada


(Nevada, I assume, as the State of Nevada gave TESLA a shedload of money, grants and tax breaks so he could build a battery factory there).


Saxon Musk sounds like an after shave to me.

Think I'll pass on Mr Musk.

Absolutely.

Male children should have proper names - Bert, Bill, Arthur, Fred, Harry, that sort of thing.

Jamie Oliver - the cook bloke - has a kid named River Rocket. I have no idea what make it is.

One of his middle names is Anthony. I'm sure that meets with your approval. The other is Ieuan, suspect that will be a passer. Incidentally, his initials also spell his first name.

Are you Welsh?

Completely unrelated, but whilst I have your attention.....

Were there any further developments in the Neil Strike story? Anyone get paid back? What is Neil doing now? If I recall properly (doubtful....) you dodged a bullet there, but many of my friends got badly burned.

4 kids according to Wiki, the other 2 were Ahmet and Diva.

Which one was the female out of Dweevil and Moon-Unit?


He is rumoured to have said this;

Sorry my ninja-edit wasn't fast ebough - it's Dweezil.

If you google Dweezil Zappa you'll read about him playing his dad's music on a "Zappa plays Zappa" tour and getting sued by his siblings and the family trust for some kind of breach of copyright.

Very much Welsh. As for Neil, I've heard nothing more and I suspect any updates on the scenario will be posted on the thread here.

Seeing you on thread reminded me......

Rob - not forgotten your post/question from a week or two back, but I've been a bit waylaid.

Will reply later today, got some work to finish first.

Hope all is well down there in Cornwall.
