TomTom Bandit test - going for petrol then lunch at the trader Mill tearooms...

It's much better than the iPhone version!

As far as I can see, this has to be a scam
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/New-RIGOL-Dig ... 2766568222?
The image appears to come from http://geoffg.net/DS1000E.html
The sales history is interesting - zip bags and non-working usb cables!
I've reported this to EBay though if Paypal is accepted how would the scam work.

Well 5 scopes were sold. Not sure what buyers will get. At best I imagine something turns up from China with import charges. Up to 30 days delivery.

Me and the other half have a significant anniversary coming up next month so for a bit of a treat we will be staying here for a few nights; http:\\www.burghisland.com

Costing me an arm and a leg but just think of the brownie points I’m gonna earn!

Phwoar! :thumbleft:

I'm slumming it in a posh hotel mid November, described as "Autumn break including dinner".

Trying to decide whether I should take a posh jacket? :D

We know Burgh Island well but have never stayed at the hotel - should be a really good experience by all accounts - enjoy!

On our recent break we had the use of a static caravan that belongs to some friends located just across the bay from Burgh Island at Challaborough - it's beautiful along the coast down in South Devon but I have to say the caravans are a bit of an eyesore.

Its not too far from chez Shane you know.

I see the view across Bigbury Bay most days, and it still gets to me every time. Took this a couple of years ago while walking the dog. The sea really was that colour!
