They are demonstrating very good taste in selecting Cresswell Neil :)

I was intrigued to learn it's so named as once watercress was grown there...

Neil will remember that there was a Helen Cresswell, newsreader for TTTV but a search brings up a different one. I recognise the books but hadn't known of the author.

Long Shot Steve, but maybe you are thinking of Ellie Crisel. She is from Chester-le-Street and is still an active presenter, but did work for Tyne Tees Television probably in the late 90's early 2000's at the time when Mike Neville had returned from the BBC to Tyne Tees Television.

Ellie is in the spoiler, not sure if she has a bargain basement electric car! :-D

You keep talking about Cresswell and the seaside, there ain't any seaside at the Creswell I used to cycle to as a lad. :-D https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Creswell,_Derbyshire

Those often give good propagation on the 2M (145MHz) amateur radio band as well as being pretty...

Neil,
I'm not new to the FCF (maybe a bit light on posts), but only recently have I ventured into Off Topic territory.
I've just finished reading this blog from beginning to end, and while your intention probably wasn't for it to be read in that way, I feel I have gone from zero-informed regarding EV to now knowing quite a lot more, owing to you sharing your experience.
So, that's it, basically...a big THANK YOU for such an amazing record!

Left headlight dipped beam is off. I discover that the pages in my manual from 8.19 to 8.35 have gone AWOL. Not ripped out or anything just missing from the collated pages of the printed manual.

Looks like from a USA 2015 Owners manual for the Leaf the relevant bulbs are H13 New one on me.
