A range of Tick Tock Teas may be just the thing to drag in a few extra punters to the Pickled Egg.....I do like the packaging in the brightly coloured cubes and a few different flavours too!

I will say this. I have a little bit of a sore throat and the 'snuffles'. I also have a box of Peppermint Leaf Tea from Taylors of Harrogate. I was told that this might help with my throat. In my case I have found that it does help. I know Waitrose sell it.

Well picture number two is a Vauxhall, maybe a Prince Henry from the 1910/1920 era.

Absolutely right with that one Gibbo, it's a 1912 Vauxhall Prince Henry. According to the blurb at the show. that car toured Sweden to mark the anniversary of the "Great Winter Reliability Trial" of 1912. Will have to google and find out what that was all about!

Regards Neil

PS....The great Winter Reliability Trial was this...
from http://www.youllhavehadyourtea.co.uk/prince-henry/

Two cars were entered in the event 100 years ago. One – a 20hp Prince Henry – for Percy Kidner, the Managing Director of Vauxhall and the other – a 20hp A type – for Hjalmar Kjellgren, the company’s agent in Sweden.

The trial of 1000km (600 miles) consisted of a reliability run from Stockholm to Gothenburg along the north side of Lake Wettern, returning to the capital by a route taking in the south side of the lake. The 41 entrants started the event at one minute intervals, with a maximum speed of 30kpm in daylight and 20 kpm at night, with a compulsory 12 hour stop at Gothenburg. From the outset, Kjellgren stuck to the rules incurring no penalty points whilst Kidner went as fast as possible throughout the event, meaning that he led the event back to Stockholm. When results were announced Kjellgren’s car was placed second, but Kidner lost many points for travelling too fast between checkpoints and was placed 11th overall. However, it was deemed that the Vauxhalls were the fastest cars on the event and came home in glory but without the major spoils of battle!

Well its most famous moment, was finishing first in the production touring class in the Mille Miglia in 1948, with Johnny Lurani and Giuglelmo Sandri at the helm. Trot that into google if you are struggling to recall the model.

I would concur with your "horrid green thing" description but its all personal taste of course.
