    When I was in my 20's I was convinced I would not see 40
    All my family except my sister died early
    Then I got in to my 40's and thought WOW ! It would be so cool to see the year 2000
    Well that came and went and my new target was to actually reach retirement age..
    I DID make that and my next target is to get a free tv licence !
    The grim reaper has had too good go's at biting me, and I hope he has given up for a while now..
    Tomorrow ( Sunday 10th ), I am 70..... Heres to the next 30 years cos I want a telegram off the king !!

    Have a good one John and congrats on reaching that milestone.

    The pain in the arse now is of course having to re-apply for your licence every three years

    Worse than that mate.. had to have the medical etc cos I wanted to retain my C1 licence ( over 3.5t ) other wise I would have had a rather expensive lump of metal I could no longer use !

    Might pop over to Belgium for the Christmas Fair at Adinkerke, but if not it will be Benidorm in January
    BTW, the sat frequncies have changed again.. If you have an auto system might be worth checking

    Ok I’ll go check it later. Then I’ll be hoping my new Pace 12v Sky box can take over from the Maxview sat unit.
