Tuesday's Trivia

Drive carefully! Remember, it's not only a car that can be recalled by it's maker. ~ Anon

Seeing as we all know how much I love driving....

You can expect to spend two weeks of your life sitting at traffic lights. Something to look forward to.

In 1994 new cars were emitting cleaner air than Los Angles. Scarey thought.

More Rolls Royces are to be found in Hong Kong than anywhere else in the world.

Your average car has about 3 ooo feet of electric wiring.

In 1901, France, the first grand Prix was held. Seems from the inception blokes just wanted their cars to go faster than anybody else's. The winner's average speed was 46mph.

This worked out ok. The N.Y police department was able to persue speeding moterists on bicycles.

Most American car horn beep in the key of F .

I am not driving today. Yay!

I find my car very useful - but I wish that others around me learnt how to drive with respect to others on the road and stuck to the speed limit - so many speed as if they haven't a clue about road rules. it really annoys me. I can rave about this for sometime!!! but I won't here:)

So long as my car gets me from A to Z I'm happy lol. Interesting facts Ganeida [beep beep] :-)

Your blog does not want me to post, very fustrating. I need your prayer support, the situation is digressing. I will fill you in when I can. I feel rotten, completely confused and am now struggling to sleep... I no longer feel anger over it all, I just do not understand... Going to go try and sleep, night mum! (3 times trying to post lucky, hopefully)
