Give yourself a break from constant watering by planting an upside-down filled drinks bottle in pots and flower beds. Wedge the bottle near the plant at least a few inches deep and water will gently seep out over a long period of time keeping the surrounding soil damp and moist. This handy hack is perfect if you're away from home for a long stretch too.

Once you’ve enjoyed your morning eggs, don’t waste the eggshells – they're the perfect addition to your garden. Not only a free fertilizer and a great composting option, they also deter garden pests and even cats. Simply rinse them, crush them and spread them around the base of your plants for a multitude of benefits.

This brilliant hack uses damp newspaper to smother weeds by starving them of light. It takes a little time to spread the paper around your plants but it means an end to the back-breaking work of pulling these horticultural pests out of the ground and it's pesticide-free. The best part is that the newspaper will decompose into mulch, which also feeds the soil.

Forget expensive weed killers and use white vinegar to kill weeds creeping through cracks in paths and patios. Fill a spray bottle and liberally apply to the offending plant, repeating the next day. The weeds should turn brown and die within a few days. Do be careful though, the vinegar may harm your other plants so apply with caution.

Thought I heard something a few years ago about this car being stolen.

Was that true? If so, has it been recovered?

----I think you heard about all the original paperwork being stolen. Happened at the Auburn Auction when Al Maynard owned the car. His wife had the original paperwork in her purse and someone stole the purse out of their truck. Al had copies of everything but he was devastated and mad a hornet. Stuff was never found. The thief wasn't after the paperwork, just the likelihood of money being in the purse......Bill S
