Well when did that happen?

5 01 2014

It’s been well over a year since I last managed to blog, how time flies! What’s happened in the mean time?

I peruse the shelves of magazines and consider something about Classic Cars, Land Rovers or another tri magazine telling me exactly the same stuff as the last one I read did. The tri magazine tends to win, but occasionally I make a mistake.
