    Ex Rover engineers working with German engineers for BMW on new 'mood lighting' for the cabin. English engineers referred to them as Chav lights - as in Essex Chavs. German engineers assumed this was an acronym and adopted it without question.
    At a meeting in Germany (held in English) the German Lead Engineer referred to the project using the term CHAV lights in a PowerPoint slide. The chairman of the meeting asked what that meant. The Engish engineer present came up with an appropriate backronym on the hoof. I don't recall it exactly but it included Cabin, Ambient and Vehicle. The H escapes me. Not only was it quick, but the word order was also German - or Military if you prefer.

    Went with the spuds idea all round, so currently held together by friction and gravity while I work out how to clamp it up and drill some bolt holes.... 20200612_173327.jpg

    It irritates me too but there's so much crap stored up there I can't do much about it at the moment.

    That's fine. I don't necessarily want everyone to know exactly where though, and the bit of info on the leg would have given it away.

    The residents of Winnersh may have something to say about that.

    As the founder - and so far sole - member of the Northumbria Independence Party* I would dispute that Englandshire.

    I would like Durham, North Yorkshire, Westmoreland and Scotland to the Firth of Forth back please whilst we are on the subject.

    *Edit: previously known as the Free Northumbria Party and too many previous alcohol fueled ramblings to recall.
