    We had rain last night.......how dare it, went to old fashioned farmers market this morning, could have bought a new.....ish tractor, even a solex bike although it wasn't working, thought of JJ :Rofl1:, a few chickens was bought by Big Pedro, barby soon, bought a gallon of olive oil so we can have REAL chips, all in all, having a great time, and the sun has come back out again.

    How much was the Solex and where was it?

    Its a farmers market in Algoz, there were people around all shaking hands and getting all excited about the Solex while another man swearing trying to get it started, all very funny, :Rofl1:
    There was a tractor there, called Lamborghini, :Smile:

    RAIN- DRIZZLE, never heard of this, never been known in Scotland. Is it a Spanish delicacy or is it a bodily function ?? :Rofl1:

    In the 1950's he was the biggest agricultural machine maker in Italy.

    I think his first car was made in the early 1960's :thumb:

    So when did you last see real beef dripping available?? Its this bland stuff these days, sold in butchers windows in a paper packet. No jelly, just BLAND.
    A really decent lard is much better. Olive oil?? BLAAAAAAAA.... Ok for making your hair shine, (if you still have any), but on food? No way. I can live with corn oil, but olive oil I would rather run the car on. :BigGrin:
    Italy is the main producer of the stuff. They also made tanks with 13 reverse gears, very tinny sports cars, and the thinnest book in the world, 'The Italian Book of War Heroes'. :Wink:

    We had no rain further north than you and clear sky all night (again). Beautiful day again today and hopefully will stay this way for next few weeks.
