    Default Goodbye old friend!

    Final call for hated pacer trains as last Northern 'truck on tracks' makes final journey - Manchester Evening News

    Pacer trains retired today has run the equivalent of 6 times to the Moon and back - which it s further than SpaceX has got.

    Evidence of when a tactical stopgap become the strategic long term solution!
    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    I'm running a sideline business from Excel - mind you it's only recording the purchase and sale prices - with a running profit line that equals Mrs Eek's wages for the past 6 months.
