    Not been around here for a few days...

    Sorry to hear about this, Dave...they can be flippin' painful. Hope everything returns to normal PDQ. Of course, there's always the thrill of looking forward to a win in the two latest comps, but seeing as I've also entered, don't hold your breath....mods perks and all that, you understand...

    Please don't encourage 'Dearly beloved'...she has enough cr@p placed all around the garden. Every so often, the latest gnome, solar powered butterfly or even plastic flamingo () disappears over the back fence...I tell her it's the red kites nicking them......

    TMB's Quiz.

    Well, I must admit Delboy's looks to be better fitted, but that's probably because it's double breasted, which always look better in my opinion...in fact my own is the same.

    Seiko dial changeover

    As most of us are aware, Seiko owners like to give the watches nicknames...there's the 'Spork', the 'Sea Urchins', the 'Turtles', 'BFK', Sumo, Samurai etc, etc. But funnily, The Seiko SKZ251 and its variants are known as 'Frankenmonsters', which seems a bit strange because as far as I know, these weren't made up from different watches....unless Seiko had a load of spare parts lying around and decided to use them up. They were available in four dial colours, Black, blue, yellow and the very scarce orange. I have the yellow version...

    Bristling battery replacement

    Well I certainly wouldn't take it to a certain high street cobbler that 'specialises' in battery replacement. If you don't feel confident enough to do this yourself, give Simon2, our resident watch repairer, a PM and ask him....he's away for a week at the moment, so try at the end of the week
