Yes thats it. Recognised the name, and I think I have come across the rover chair before.

If you fancy learning spoon-bending made famous by another Tel Aviv -ian, it looks pretty simple...

I do believe his "original" could well have been a distressed mango.

Quite a vista, built on sand, literally!

I did read around Tel-Aviv-Jaffa a bit on Wiki, bit of a complicated history as you might expect, so I picked out the relative triviality of Ron Arad and Uri Geller , and of course Jaffa oranges :-D

Cant remember the last time I had a proper orange.

Maybe time to move out of Tel Aviv.....Suggestions welcomed for the next link :-D

I don't think I've had an orange since retiring from football in 1976!! The odd satsuma at Christmas yes, but I do drink gallons of orange drinks from pure juice to squash, I love them all and I've been Tango'd on many an occasion!! :-D However a tenuous link may follow on from Ron Arad as the Rover P6 which had his seats was designed based on the Citroen DS19 according to Wiki's page on the P6. Now where does the DS19 take us? :)
