I received the latest copy of Land Rover Owner in the post last week and aside from it having a yellow plastic spoon thingy as a freebie, it's the 30th anniversary issue.

I've subscribed to LRO since around 1994 but worryingly, looking through the articles on past issues, i can remember most of the front pages and articles that they've printed!

Should I be worried or have i got a talent for remembering useless information? Surprised Smile

Afternoon Rich.
Normal for a Land Rover owner. What are you going to use your free plastic thingy for (apart from the unprintable obvious?)
Installed the baby seat yet? Induction into Land Rover ownership starts at the earliest age possible.

As yet, i haven't decided what to use the plastic thingy for. I was thinking to stir paint or some other landy related job... Smile

I'm still working on the baby seat. Not had much landy time for the last few weeks though! Surprised Smile

I have to admit to having a titanium one of these! Embarassed Used in super light camping...however a paint stirrer is probably the best use for this freebie! Laughing

I jumped ship when Classic Land Rover magazine was launched. LRO was more into extreme off roading which didn't interest me at all.

Thanks for the photo Adie - please excuse me whilst I run out and buy a copy of LRO so that I may also bask in the magnificence that is the LRO spork............

Had to go to ASDA as my local newsagent had sold out - probably everyone has heard about the fabled 'spork' and rushed out to clear the shelves. I now am the owner of a lovely new piece of quality cutlery. Can't help noticing that there is a serrated blade to the spork - mind your fingers folks cos it looks sharp!! - so does this mean that this is not a spork at all, but is something completely different?? or does it mean that it is rare and completely collectable?

Evening Yule.
When can we expect to see you with your spork on the Antiques Road Show? About 2317 I reckon.
