Actually my wife bought this amazing fire pit for me, bespoke too. It is for my birthday which was today (not fishing for greetings, just want to show off this amazing fire put). It was our first tentative attempt, it will look better with bigger flames. It also turns into a BBQ, which we wil ltry tomorrow.

So here is a pic of the mighty Ford Kuga which I bought to replace the VW Tiguan (which I had bought but which suffered from some kind of unidentifiable yet terminal malfunction resulting in a full refund), which I had bought to replace the aging and flawed but devastatingly quick Renaultsport Megane 230 R26 F1 Team Nürburgring Edition.

AWD/4x4, or only by implication? And is it a devilishly-geared, with a efficient tiny engine capacity, or at least a 2L beast under the bonnet??

Some more books. I'll never have time to read the collection I'm gathering.

It's the top of the range 'Titanium' with AWD, a 6 speed box, and 163bhp on tap from a 2.0L turbo diesel.

Fortean Forest looks great!

Haven't started it yet, but a quick flick through suggests it's full of newspaper reports dating back over 150 years & modern day sightings of UFOs, spook lights, ghosts, mysterious creatures as well as our old friend Bigfoot.
I was in Maine this time of the year 3 years ago and it was my favourite state of the U.S. Just beautiful.

Keeping it the original "Caitin des bois" would have been a lot cooler and interesting I think. Otherwise it just seems ugly to me :/

I am truly impressed! I didn't think anyone, even here would know about caitin des bois so I didn't use it!

Nine Corydoras habrosus. They'll be living with Amano shrimp, Neocaridinia shrimp, Cherry barbs and three Nerite snails. Chuffed at finding the habrosus, as dwarf catfish have been difficult to find over the last year.
