Martha Wainwright

 A couple of tickets turned up today for myself and Fran to go and see Martha Wainwright next Wednesday at the Trinity Centre,Bristol,which is an old church.
 She was great when we both saw her a few years back playing at the Colston Hall (a sit down venue)

Moto Guzzi Magni Sfida

I am having one more try at posting this picture of  Janine's latest purchase (She already has 3 x Mk I lemans including the Bryants Racing bike)
My third try at getting to keep this picture on here as it has disappeared  twice before leaving just the text.
Anybody know why ?
   I first saw one of these in the very early 90's parked up outside at the 'Bristol Classic Bike Show' when the show was actually still in Bristol down at the old warehouses on the Docks. I thought the bike looked great  then and the years have done nothing to change my view .
