WINTER SNOW : Already falling in UK & USA

Conditions on Roads are getting appalling

Are you ready for the SNOW today ?

Some things are essential for you to carry

Get them TODAY and do not TARRY !


Correct pressure for your tyres : Oil topped up OK

Petrol : more than half a tank : Antifreeze s'il vous plait !

Tool kit & Jack & A Spade & A Brush

To dig you out and brush the SNOW away


First Aid Kit (in case you're hit) : A Fire ......

Extinguisher too : Antifreeze (in the cooling system)

And windscreen washer too ! TYRE CHAINS I'll add OK

But only for the USA : BRITS slip & slide all day ......

And Blankets for a snowed-in stay !


A can of Lubricating Oil : Don't carry

GAS in the UK : NOT even sealed inside the Boot

Or Trunk as Americans would say 

Always carry water : a litre please and DRINKABLE

To DRIVE in WINTER without these : really is UNTHINKABLE !


Thanks for sharing ~ comments please ~ BRIAN 🧡🧡🧡


It never snows in AUCKLAND (NZ) and ANGELA is sailing

in her Bikini and moaning because she cant swish through

the Autumn Leaves !  Its 22C (72F) and next week it will

be SUMMER !  Im leaving on a JET PLANE ~ Dont know if

I'll be back again !  Love to ALL BRIAN & ANGELA 🧡🧡🧡

    My dream car is the Aston martin DB11, if you would like to buy me one Brian you can get them from £149,000.


      Thanks UNCLE ANDY ~~ I will check my assets with my Accountant ! An imported Ford Mustang is only $80,000 (£60,000) ! Blessings & Love to YOU & JOYCE ~ Brian & Angela 🧡🧡🧡🧡

      A fine write B&A. But tut, tut, what's all this 'manna' and worldly wealth?! And women should not wear lots of costly gold, St Peter says. What's that? I should be so lucky to even HAVE any gold?! heehee.

      • BRIAN & ANGELA

        THANKS for the ADMONITION Father Stephen ! You know I am an ascetic ~ my present Wheel is a humble 2013 Vauxhall Allegro ~ Trade-in value from WE BUY ANY CAR £500 ! I may change it for similar in the Spring.! Pleased you enjoyed the poem etc ! Yours as always ~ BRIAN Please check our FUSION ~ Thanks !

          Ooh no. I'm not strict, but I don't like the 'Father' title of (mainly R.C.?) priests. They are not our Dads for one thing! Should we even call some priests 'Vicar'? I'm sure you won't fall into mammon though!

        • BRIAN & ANGELA

          Thanks OSO GRANDE ! Very Good advice : but not needed in Auckland. I do miss leaf swishing but I wont miss another Essex Winter. ts cold & damp and never enough Snow for tobogganing ! Im looking forward to a Sub-tropical Summer in Dec Jan & Feb wish you could be with me ! Muchos (Cyber) Abrazos y Besos : con todo de mi Amor :
          ANGEL 🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡

          • BRIAN & ANGELA

            GRACIAS ANGEL ~ I guess youre tucked up in bed and fast asleep now ! I have just finished teaching for the day and am catching up on MPS with a hot mince pie and a cup of Earl Grey ~ I have a Course Meeting (Path Lab Technicians) @ 4 pm. Margaret is an excellent Course Tutor and we have a fine cohort of Students in each year. I teach basic Biochemistry on the Course which is a course in my Applied Science Sub-department ~ OK. I do envy you being in Auckland for Summer in the months of D J & F ! You will find it very paradoxical to be Sailing on Christmas afternoon. Ruths Family have been very generous to you ~ I am thrilled People love you so much and I know you are very safe with them. The Autumn leaves are very damp now and much less Swishable ! I will SKYPE you at 7:30 pm here when it will be 8:30 am Saturday with You ! TODO D'AMOR con muchos Abrazos y Besos tambien ~
            Tu Amorado ~ El Oso Grande 🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡

            A needed list of essentials for snowy assault Brian - - well even here in the south west we have a sprinkle now and then but not every year - yet we in this country are never prepared - so I vote everyone reads this informative note and takes heed to escape the white menace on roads. Thanks for letting us know your fave. car too - - - not in that league is my tiny Mazda. x

            • BRIAN & ANGELA

              THANKS FAY ~ I am not a great CAR FANATIC but God provides my needs with an ALLEGRO as He does yours with a MAZDA ~ Godliness with Contentment is great GAIN ! Being a Scientist I take great care of my CAR MECHANICALLY and I have never had a Breakdown or run out of PETROL / OIL / WATER / ANTIFREEZE etc. I find others ill-equipped which causes inconvenience to other road users ~ OK. I was active in the Scouts when I was younger ad my MOTTO is still BE PREPARED ! The things I have listed are in my car today ! In order to lead Field Excursions for the College I have to be First Aid Trained which is why I carry a kit and a litre of pure water etc. On the Road (and off it !) we all need to be Good Samaritans and never pass by on the other side when People are in need ! Thanks for your supportive comments ~ Yours as always BRIAN 🧡

              Great write and advice - trouble is I can't even drive at the moment and it may be a few weeks yet. .

              • BRIAN & ANGELA

                THANKS UNCLE MIKE ~ Hope you are back in the saddle soon ! We are so reliant on our WHEELS . I still use a BIKE (Spring Summer Autumn) but I cleaned & oiled it and it and put it in the spare BEDROOM till MARCH ! Because I am a FIRST AIDER ~ I am quite strict about carrying a FIRST AID KIT etc and it has come in handy especially to help CYCLISTS who have taken a tumble and scratched and bruised themselves etc. I have little sympathy with people who run out of Petrol ~ dont have a JACK and dont carry antifreeze and a Brush & Spade ! Winter is forecast to be hard ~ to compensate for the very HOT Summer ~ its all to do with CLIMATIC EQUILIBRIUM ETC ~ Every Blessing & love for a speedy recovery ~ BRIAN & ANGELA 🧡🧡🧡🧡
                Dont forget our Fusion on Best European Country to live in ~ You can choose the UK ! Thanks B & A !
