From Vincent – Re Alfie's Little Spot Of Bother…

21 Dec

We’re having a bit of an Indian Summer here and it’s currently 33 degrees (CENTIGRADE) – however, I recall the problems of frozen washer bottles when I drove in The Old Country.

The problem was that while adding anti-freeze to your bottle would fix the problem FINE – it stripped your car’s PAINT off as well.

Which left you with various potions that CLAIMED to sort the problem – but when you read the small print, it transpired they only dropped the freezing point by a COUPLE of degrees.

Fact is, there IS only ONE cure for the problem – HEAT the washer bottle – AND the pipes AND the jets. Oh – and the WINDSCREEN.

…or you could just move to Thailand.

    Rotten GIT!

    33 Degrees FAHRENHEIT would feel quite tropical about now!

    Even the bit of Tenerife that I went to in March/April is suffering down at 20C. at the moment!

    Well, they do say as how if you Westerners keep burning them fossil fuels – Thailand will be underwater soon, anyhow!
