I've just been into my local Asda, I went to see the seasonal aisle and discovered the Father's Day range is now out.  First of all I saw a OFAH Rodney mug, which I'm not fussed about, obviously didn't buy one of those.  Then a Del Boy one, but I already bought several of them before Christmas.  Next, a chilli sauce set, which doesn't do much for me as it's only a cardboard picture of Del, but then my eye caught something completely new to me on the shelf, a new Del Boy biscuit tin!  Only two on the shelf so it would have been rude not to buy the two just incase they don't get any more stock.  :rolleyes:  Also, if anyone needs inspiration for a gift, head to your local Aldi on Sunday to buy a talking Del, Rodders or Uncle Albert.  I don't know why they are only selling them now, I've had mine since late January/early February from the official OFAH shop.  :laughing2dw:  Back to today's purchase, I know you're all desperate to see so, I'll post a picture to treat you all...:whistle: :laughing2dw:

Is she allowed to talk when Felicity Kendal or Sue Holderness is on?  :laughing2dw:  You'll need to start watching "Still Open All Hours", as Sue has become a regular customer now!  Filming is in progress.  :thumbsup:

Purchasing this map about 16 years ago made me very happy.

It is the first map of the Witwatersrand Goldfield dated February 1887

The goldfield was discovered by George Harrison in February or March 1886 although at the time the significance wasn't truly appreciated as the initial geological interpretation was that the pebbly rock was from an old river and would have no depth (how wrong they were with mines to the west of this map operating at 4000 metres depth). In May 1886 Harrison entered into a prospecting agreement with the owner of the farm Langlaagte and was awarded a discoverer's claim by the Transvaal government who declared the diggings public in September 1886. Harrison sold his claim for £10 and was never heard of again! Millions of dollars of gold were on his claim!

The first plots for the new town of Johannesburg were auctioned in December 1886 and the rest is history.

The red blocks on the map were the claims in February 1887 and interesting to note that the name of the goldfield was given as the Pretoria and Heidelberg goldfield, the names of the nearest towns, given Johannesburg was just a few shacks at this time.

I don't know of another of these maps in private hands although I am sure there will be a few somewhere. not sure what I am going to do with it mind you, its just one of those things that made me happy :biggrin:

Its cars with me, but you all know that, a new car always makes me happy, as i grow older though Im finding that watches might be taking as much precedence in my affections, to the point i put them first. Cars whatever they are seems to have become a bit ubiquitous which is why i got one that would be fast and exciting and slip seamlessly into life.

im following in the footsteps of @BondandBigM he seems to know what he is doing. No more Maserati.

I thought you might have kept it wrapped up in its cellophane as a mint example...never to be used in anger. :laughing2dw:
