Yep, a boer I am.... or was. Now I am a new immigrant of 35 years standing. Do I qualify for being a local?

I figured if some of you could spruik Latin I would do a bit in Afrikaans.

I fell victim to the new rules of EO this morning which told me I could not use the screenname Willie any longer. So I have reverted back to my real name.

Translated my motto reads:

Things that are fastened shake loose
Things that are loose fall off!

This all with reference to driving over endless corrugations and rough country.

See ya,
Willem

G'day Bob,

Yeah, I could not figure that out either and in the end I made an error and that is why my full name came up. Anyway I have changed everything back to Willem. I set out to compete with the Latin lovers to put in a bit of sillyness and in the process I messed things up. Oh well, doesn't matter.

Cheers,
Willem

Pneumatic Tyre (Tire)
John Boyd Dunlop (1840-1921) was a Scottish veterinarian and the recognized inventor of the first practical pneumatic or inflatable tyre/tire. His patent was for a bicycle tire, granted in 1888. However, Robert William Thomson (1822 - 1873) invented the actual first vulcanised rubber pneumatic tire. Thomson patented his pneumatic tire in 1845, his invention worked well but was to costly to catch on. Dunlop's tire patented in 1888 did, and so he received the most recognition. William Thomson also patented a fountain pen (1849) and a steam traction engine (1867).

Very good Truckster, you are on the money(as opposed to in the money).

Where did you copy that information from as the grammar is far too sophisticated by your standards LOL

Cheers,
Willem
