The Mezzo went to a neighbour with a Volvo.

Well, shall we a go-go to Battersea Park, for a change of lukewarm, flavourless coffee and the usual fly-blown buns? Where is the Caff, Nigel?

[h=1]'La Gondola al Parco' - a Michelin starred restaurant and abatour by the east of the lake - It used to be 'Daves Nosh' but nobody went there due to the missing apostrophe and the serious hygeine issues (Dave now runs Starbuck's)...
[/h]from the 'Battersea Herald'

The only possible impediment on the day could be the AGM meeting of 'The Friends of Battersea Park'.
Lucky we're not there on Wednesday for the 'J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge'

La Gondola!

Ah, I remember it. Most unsalubrious! More abbatoir than abatour.

Let me know what (all) bits you need for your Mouton and I'll bring what I have. I@m awash with parts for creaking old Brit ironmongery, and live in a small-ish castle now. All must go.

abbot where? - At the mo the Ni-moulton has the 3X7 rear hub confusion system, which will have to go - someday. I often ponder on the 11 speed Shimano IH as a neat solution (just one cable - luxury)
