By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer.

Helen Hunt Jackson - September
The breezes taste
Of apple peel.
The air is full
Of smells to feel-
Ripe fruit, old footballs,
Burning brush,
New books, erasers,
Chalk, and such.
The bee, his hive,
Well-honeyed hum,
And Mother cuts
Chrysanthemums.
Like plates washed clean
With suds, the days
Are polished with
A morning haze.

John Updike, September

    Eu não posso sonhar com estes carros. Eles estão tão longe de mim que eu nem posso sonhar com eles.

    Another think, I can't fit myself inside them. image

    Land Rover is a good choice @Helvio whatever the model is, I hope you will get one soon.
    By the way, do you know who is the new owner of the brand?

    TATA
  • HelvioHelvio Posts: 1,860 Inactive
    I didn't know! TATA is the best. hahaha.

    But here in Brazil Land Rover is very very expensive, I have no chance to buy it.


    :(

    Do you see TATA cars in Brazil @Helvio?

    My favourite car is the Mini.

    I'dd be too dangerous in a Mini Cooper @science24. I was bad enough with my little 800cc engine (I'm talking Leyland too). But it was such a light car, even with such a small engine I could leave most cars standing - on the flat at least!

    @Helvio
    this is what your dreams car should be!!:D

    Aristocratic cars covered with diamond

    @Science,
    All this what I liked was the Lamborghini Aventador
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 26,992 mod
    I'm afraid that either a diamond-studded or gold car wouldn't last five seconds parked outside, on the street in London (or anywhere) @Science24!

    But have you ever watched the Michael Caine film, The Italian Job? There is the most sensational car chase in it with Minis tearing round and off mountain roads. It's a real classic.

  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 26,992 mod
    That's a rather nice little set of wheels @April.
  • science24science24 Posts: 983 ✭✭✭✭✭
    good choice April, it is the most appropriate for women, it is the same as peugeot 107.
  • HelvioHelvio Posts: 1,860 Inactive

    A giant man deserves a giant car, or a powerful motorcycle as yours.
    by the way, can you get in your wife's car. :D
  • HelvioHelvio Posts: 1,860 Inactive
    Yes, I can, this is the issue when we will buy a car, it shall fits me.

    @Helvio: Yes, I can. This is the issue when we buy a car. I have to fit into it.

    I'm not bothered by cars, so long as they work! A bit like computers! However, I do have a lottery car - a Maseratti! -http://www.ghibli.maserati.com/
  • HelvioHelvio Posts: 1,860 Inactive
    Why it is a lottery car @amatsuscribbler? Do you won it in one?
