When your road comes to an end ...... you need a HILUX!.


Life is like a jar of Jalapeño peppers ... what you do today, might burn your ass tomorrow.
Don't take life too seriously ..... no-one gets out alive.
It's not about waiting for storms to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.
And be yourself ..... everyone else is taken!

Very scary
A lot of the chinese imports are pretty dodgy.
Friends of mine for a solar powered motion sensing spot light
they mounted it onto their wooden stables, perfect for when they need to go tend to the horses during the night, one afternoon as Cindy was walking in the garden, luckily close to the stables, she heard a bang, then saw smoke from the stable wall. The battery behind the solar panel had exploded, maybe it got too much sun :wth: and immediately started burning, if she had not been in the area at the time, they would have completely lost their stables no doubt
