Default Re: Radiophile Auction - The future

I think I've got a mental age of six-and-two-thirds, does that count?

All the world is a toyshop!

Can't afford the volcanic island yet, but the plans for my monorail and the goons' uniforms are done

Judging by some of the things I have bought, I think that may be older than me.
Watching the bidders at auctions, I wonder if they realise how obvious they are, I would love to play poker with some of them.
Lets see how today's auction goes and how Chas is afterwards, I think there will be a post mortem, or a Spanish Inquisition.

At the age of 18, I was recruited by the NHS as a trainee electrical and electronics engineer.

Fortunately I found this stuff more interesting than mere electrical engineering, and stuck with it for 42 years!
