Re: Questions Are A Burden To Others: Answers A Prison For Oneself

Our laws on contempt of court are odd, but he broke them. This is the 5th time he's been to prison for various charges.

Lawn mowed but a bit of a stutter from the engine when warmed up. Can't decide if missfire or the governer needing a tweak. I might splash £2 on the correct spark plug as I'm using a high temp plug I had lying around...
