Not saying anything, but someone I know uses time and resources at Sellafield to restore classic bike parts.

Just the odd pen and notepad for me, and perhaps some drugs. More than twenty years ago though.



Every farm in West Cumbria used to be painted in some fancy Grey paint that walked out of that place. A couple of my friends had sledges that would make any Olympic hopeful drool - Titanium.

I used to steal expensive and unusual mountain bikes AS a job of work.
I'd strip them down and sell the parts on Ebay, Gumtree and geeky little forums.

In February this year I was having a meet with the boss when he mentioned in passing that I was off pay- roll. Upon enquiring what that meant, imagine my surprise when he said that it meant I had been made redundant at Xmas. No one had thought to mention this to me , including his wife who ran the payroll and had a desk three feet from mine !

I am typing this on her laptop 8)

My firewall doesn't like that link. Says it might lead to a site containing humour.

The wonderful thing about owning the company is that all the money that's being embezzled goes to me.
