Yeah, tell them it's a once in a lifetime opportunity !

IOM may be the very last place on earth that one can enjoy speed limit free country roads safely. There is nothing else like it.

Exactly what I had in mind.

Now off to the shops to get some chocolate for the missus, the ultimate sweetener..........

Right, I have paid for a beach front house for 6 as vacancies were going down fast. So far, it's Hetan, Jan, Shane & ?Felicity, Matt and Me. Joe is trying to get time off and Mark is still sweetening his wife for permission . If both of them confirm, then they will have to book a cosy house for 2 , of which there are plenty of.

No problem. Obviously, if Felicity can't come, I can contact the accommodation and change the double bed into singles, so either Mark or Joe can take it and I'm sure we can squeeze in one on the sofa or something. There are 2 bathrooms and I've informed them that there will be about 5-7 cars that require parking.

I've changed the accommodation to 2 2-bedroom cottages and the person running it has kindly selected 2 cottages which are better in terms of decor than the original 3-bedroom cottage.

Hopefully, we aren't going to cruise. I'm hoping for 140mph on a mountain road , if it's safe of course.

If thats how you took it, then you sir must not know my definition of "cruise".

Besides..... "Safe" is an arbitrary word isnt it?
