  1. Would you believe I needed a screwdriver today, that I had had no use for in the last 35 YEARS?
    I used to live in Vancouver, BC, Canada between 1968 and 1971. When I left I kept a screwdriver with a square head. Went back to Europe, and never ever saw another screw with a square screwdriver-hole again.
    Until today, when I wanted to take down some windowblinds in my house that I bought in 1999. Those blinds were mounted with screws having those square screwdriver-holes!
    Never thought I'd ever needed that old Canadian screwdriver again, but today in Ireland I did, and I knew exactly where the matching screwdriver was!
    Talk about hoarding....

    I know exactly what you mean RBS.

    I`ve got an old cabinet in my workshop, full of old tools, that I`ll probably never use. However, I`m loath to part with any of them, just in case they come in handy lol.

    Regards Howard :)

    Well, at the moment, I have three cars. two of them off the roadf, and the one I'm driving is questionable at the moment.

    I'd fix them if I didn't keep loosing my tools somehow.
