Much of the text on the car pages came from my old personal website and has not been updated for several years. I keep this online to warn others and hope people seeing my lucky escape will realise what a tin eggshell a car is. Also, of course, I always remind myself how lucky I am to be alive. Even all these years later I am shocked that it actually happened to me.

The car was featured three times in magazines

  1. 22722Oh my gosh, you are lucky to have survived. Do you know Mellisa Galka? She died in her car with the engine pinning her to her seat. Anyway, did you know that amnesia can be categorized as personal injury due to head trauma? You can approve a personal injury lawyer to know what benefits you can have based on your needs for your present and future medication? I had a small car accident that broke my hip and my lawyer was able to fix my car and pay for my medications for free. Isn’t that great?

Dell KB522 Wired Business Multimedia Keyboard

Now I have a 24" monitor on my laptop I find that the £5 keyboard is really not up to it. Hence the Dell KB522 Wired Business Multimedia Keyboard. Very nice. I have started my degree in Creative and Professional Wiring this year and think I have a lot of typing ahead, hence the keyboard. It was only once I got this I realised how hard I had to hit the keys on the old one, as first of all with this one it hurt I was hitting them so hard. Pretty much sorted on the computer front now. I bought Dell hoping for longevity from this item. I don't like to buy new stuff all the time from an environmental standpoint.
