I'm going to see an AC/DC tribute band in December.
All this reference to their songs is building me up nicely for it!
I saw AC/DC tribute 'Stiff Upper Lip' at the Isle Of Wight festival in September - fantastic :)
Enjoy December (y)

I'll have more to say later today, but for now...

Excited Adam Levine GIF by The Voice
Which means I'm also now very excited, but don't even know why...

It's really quite odd how some can have the jabs and have zero side effects, or very mild... and others can be wiped out for a couple of days. I know people who had none, some with mild effects, and others, like me, that have had it quite bad. Pleased at least that I know my body is doing something.
I was a bit rough for a couple of days after my 2nd Pfizer, but my booster, which I had at the same time as my Flu jab, resulted in nothing. Nowt at all.
And I had been banking of a couple of days off work too 😉😂🤣

You're kidding me! Unbelievable.
I would never have known if you didn't message me, and that would have been my loss. Really glad you did
Same for me. I'm extremely grateful that Mark messaged me (y)

Pass To The Lake


Announcing our Sunday Drive and Lunch...

Following on from the plethora of activities on the Saturday... a chance for a lazy start to Sunday.

We depart from the hotel around 11am and head north east on the A590 towards Newby Bridge where we continue heading north on the A592 along the eastern bank of Lake Windermere and through the breathtaking Kirkstone Pass. Continuing on the A592 along the west bank of Ullswater before arriving at our lunch destination - the Inn on the Lake. This is a 30 mile drive, and will take about an hour.

Kirkstone Pass


The Kirkstone Pass is the highest major road in the Lake District, reaching a height of 1,489 feet (454 m) and offers unrivalled views of the surrounding area.

Inn on the Lake, Ullswater


The Inn on the Lake is situated on the banks of Ullswater with gardens sweeping down to the lakeshore. Once parked, we can explore the grounds and breathtaking views over the lake before taking up our seats in the 2 AA Rosette "Lake View Restaurant" for a scrumptious 3-course lunch from 1.30pm.

Well, there's still 105 days 2 hours 30 minutes until I'm due to check in to the hotel... yep, there's a countdown clock on the www.jaguarsatthelakes.co.uk website now :ROFLMAO:

It's all good fun though.
OM flippin' G, as the kids say. You've now got a website?!?! This is absolutely brilliant work, Mark. And what started out as a hobby/pastime activity looks like it has definitely turned into work. Thank you. I'm sure many of us are not worthy of all this attention, (I probably am, though ;):ROFLMAO: ).

I love the countdown clock, by the way 👍.

Happy New Year everyone.

It only seems 5 minutes ago that Mark messaged me and asked me if I wanted to join The Event Of The Year; it was actually 77 days ago! The time is flying by, folks, and the 90 days will be gone before we know it. Brilliant, can't wait.

Many of us are driving considerable distances to meet up in the Lakes in April, and the growl of the V8 (or even just 6 cylinders) must get boring after a few miles. :ROFLMAO:

I'll compile a list from your suggestions and Lake Trippers will then get a chance to vote for their favourites courtesy of some web wizardry on the Lakes website. From that we'll get our very own "Jaguars at the Lakes Top 40"

I was just having a look at Mark's wonderful stats for the event of the year, and realised that if we all leave about 3 car length between cars when travelling in convoy, we will be half a mile long. Half a mile of Jaguars on the A592! :unsure::D

Apologies if anyone's already stated this somewhere in these 141 pages.

I have an unfortunate announcement to make to everyone - the Clark family are no longer attending the Lakes this year sadly.

We had a chat about if over the weekend, and it seems the best thing for us. I have committed our family to quite a lot of work that has all come about at once, and is not helping, but the deciding factor is an unexpected operation that Aston needs next month. I should add that it's nothing to worry about, and Aston is fine - just something unexpected he now needs.

This event has been arranged so meticulously by Mark, and I know it is going to be absolutely fantastic for everyone. I wish everyone the most amazing time, and I shall look forward to seeing all the photographs!
Sorry to read that you won't be going but, understandably, the Clark family have other priorities at the moment. All the best to Aston and the rest of you.

But let's just say if you were in the market for a dashcam, you may want to wait until you get to the Lakes.;)

Funny that you've said that....

Nice one, Mark (y)

It's definitely getting real... my kitchen is filling up with boxes of 'stuff'... another load of boxes turned up today courtesy of Autoglym.



I'm wondering what's going to turn up next.
I'm a little bit in awe of what's going on here, Mark. My little mind is struggling with all the excitement🤪. I'm off for skiing for a week on the 12th, then back for the Event of the Year, Jaguars At The Lakes. And all this after 2 years of near-stasis 🤯

I think I'll be grateful of the rest at Easter 😄
