    Good Morning Comrade,

    Absolutely fine down here. The tree surgeons are here for a few days. My wife's just made them tea and mince pies.

    Dear Comrade 512 Tea Are - alter ego,

    I'm having a day off up here. I went Christmas shopping in the F-40 yesterday and acquired a few interesting items. Actually finished up at Beaulieu.

    With kind regards,

    Dear Comrade 512 Tea Are,

    How did the car go - did the cold air materially affect the performance as I understand the cold air has a huge impact on the power and increases it somewhat. Is this the case?

    Dear Comrade 512 Tea Are,

    Yes, you're perfectly correct. The cold air does materially increase the performance. So much is this the case that I am contemplating strapping a Hotpoint freezer to it for the summer.

    With kind regards,

    Dear Comrade 512 Tea Are,

    Well, and in the strictest of confidence, I did get it up to 165 on the A34 - but only for a few seconds.

    Dear Comrade 512 Tea Are,

    No, fourth.

    It was just entering the red sector at 8500 rev's when I changed into top.

    Dear comrade 512 Tea Are,

    Right. The cold air makes quite a difference then to the turbocharging - how much would you estimate the increase to be?

    Dear Comrade 512 Tea Are,

    Difficult to be precise. But I would guess that it makes five per cent difference - perhaps even ten per cent when it's really revving.

    That much! So yes, I can very well see why you're contemplating the fitment of a Hotpoint fridge for the summer!

    Dear Comrade 512 Tea Are,

    They're doing a wonderful job. They're presently felling three willows and will be felling a beech this afternoon - The beech has been squirrelled.

    Dear Comrade 512 Tea Are,

    'Squirrelled' is damage caused by grey squirrels that often during the sprintime will peel back the bark to get at the sap and the soft bark.

    I must pay a visit upon the tree surgeons who presently have a roaring fire underway.

    No, we have a circulation whereby trees that were felled and logged up three years ago are now being consumed.

    Dear Comrade 512 Tea Are,

    We burn quite a variety. Generally we have the 'Winter Mixture' that consists of oak, ash, chestnut, beech and holly.

    Have you heard anything from the Fat ****roller?
