I spotted Kwackerz lurking recently - but don't tell anyone.
Good to see some dropping by even if they feel the time is not right for the involvement of before ..... but they will always be welcome at whatever level is right for them.

Funny you should say that cos I was thinking about him the other day, just wondering how he was, as you do.

Well if I get myself sorted, I'll be looking for Tim, in the next year or so, to let him christen a certain CB400/4 again.

So, I left the Army, got a Job in London back in 2013. Working in a Plant hire firm running the fleet of vehicles, plant machines and doing the hire desk. 5am up to get in for 6am, finishing about 5 then an hour commute home.
6 years later its still the same.. although im now the boss, answering to directors and the commute is in my own company amarok. noice. :D

Some of you will remember my Becky from the racing days.. she grew up moved out and got settled and had two kids.
My debs, sam and little jack (now 9) still live with mum
Becky got poorly the tail end of last year, lymphoma.. non hodgkins type b? cant remember, it matters not. she fought like fuck for 6 months before she passed away in her sleep.. hours after we got her and her guy married in the hospital. She passed away holding his hand as they slept. Hardest thing to do is bury your kid.




So we cremated her.

THATS just as damn hard.

Life still goes on though and I can only try and do Sam and her proud in what I do. Apparently im really good at what I do. meh, it doesn't really matter to be fair.

Anyways, Ben nudged me on Facebook and here I am. 'Ello.

I'll give some people a nudge, see what's occurring, eh?
