Although the Weather was Windy, there was plenty of Sunshine today and so we decided to go out for Lunch at one of our favourite Pubs

Which also gave me a chance to try out some new Video editing software, which is so much smoother than what I was using before as well as much better Sound Quality

The only downside being its a massive learning curve, which is going to take some getting used to, so all I need now is a really decent dashcam to go with it

The date shown on the dashcam is also wrong, as the battery inside is on the way out, so probably time for a new one

there seems to be a problem with your car. It was overtaken by at least two nissan micras. The pedal on the right needs to be pushed down a bit more

just an observation

Hi Leo

Although it pains me to say this it gets worse, as on another day Trip I got overtaken by a 'Smart Car!'

It was absolutely hilarious, as I was doing a double take while feigning a look of astonishment, while the owner of the 'Smart Car' had sort of Self Inducted himself into some sort of 'Hall of Fame'

I'm sure he'll be dining out on that for many years to come and had probably put up a 'Plaque' outside his house

Travels With My XJS

A Soggy Sunday Afternoon Day Out

(Road Trip Video)
It was really just one of those days too Wet to go out but too nice to stay in but since it wasn't raining we decided to go for lunch at a Pub down by the Marina, so that we could look at the boats

Which believe it or not can cost more to run than a V12 XJS 'ask me how I know' or rather don't, as I have had a few small boats and each and every one of them cost me a Small Fortune, or rather a Big one!

Cars are so much cheaper and also lots of fun, even if you accidentally buy a not so good one providing its an XJS as worse case Scenario, you can always use her for Spares

It must be about a year since we came down here as when the better Weather arrives, we love to go for a Picnic in the Country but where we went there's a very nice Pub right on the Waterfront that serves very nice meals

So with our leather jackets on and the Soft Top folded down, there was nothing for it but to grab the Keys and go, where on the way I made a Mini Road Trip Video, which just like the last one had the wrong date on

And I found a nice Track to go with it, which had my next door Neighbour complaining that I hadn't got the Sound turned up enough!

Off To Get Some Petrol (Again!)

Since the Weather is really bad I made a very short Road Trip Video

From Footage that was taken a couple of weeks ago when the Weather was a lot nicer than it is to day

Which is featuring '50 Shades' My Grey XJS

Bring Your Own Pop Corn!


Dates and times on the Dash Cam are out of sync until I get a New one
Just popped out for some Petrol, which then turned into a Road Trip which we did a few days ago when the Weather was a lot nicer than it has been Today, as its blowing a Gale!

Not much Point in Filling Her up until some better Weather decides to arrive, so only put 100 in which should just about last the Weekend if I'm lucky!
