Six cars I have owned
(As a bonus, the first car I drove was a 1950s Austin Cambridge that once belonged to my grandfather. I learned to drive it round the fields on my dad's farm when I was a young teenager. Does anyone else remember driving cars that had a choke?)

Six Winston Churchill quotes
- A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.
- If you have an important point to make, don't try to be subtle or clever. Use a pile driver. Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again. Then hit it a third time - a tremendous whack.
- My wife and I tried two or three times in the last 40 years to have breakfast together, but it was so disagreeable we had to stop.
- Personally I'm always ready to learn, although I do not always like being taught.
- Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.
- To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.
