This man owned and drove the same car for 82 years.

Can you imagine even having the same car for 82 years?

Mr. Allen Swift ( Springfield , Massachusetts ) received this 1928 Rolls-Royce Piccadilly-P1 Roadster from his father, brand new - as a graduation gift in 1928.

He drove it up until his death in 2010....At the age of 102.

He was the oldest living owner of a car that was purchased new.

Just thought you'd like to see it!                                                                                             

Rolls Royce Phantom 1 - 1928

It was donated to a Springfield museum after his death.

It has 1,070,000 miles on it, still runs like a Swiss watch, dead silent at any speed and is in perfect cosmetic condition.

82 years - That's approximately 13,048 miles per year (1087 per month).

1,070,000 that's miles not kilometres.

That's British engineering of a bygone era.
I don't think they even make them like this anymore..

DILLBERRY SIGHTINGS AND DILL DETECTIONS:

 You can’t make this stuff up! 


We went through to the McDonald's driveway window and I gave the attendant a $5 note.

Our total was $4.25, so I also handed her 25c.

She said, 'you gave me too much money.'

I said, 'Yes I know, but this way you can just give me a dollar coin back.'

She sighed and went to get the manager who asked me to repeat my request.

I did so, and he handed me back the 25c, and said 'We're sorry but we don’t do that kind of thing.'

The attendant then gave me back 75 cents in change.

Do not confuse the people at McDonald's.

 DILLBERRY: 

We had to have the garage door repaired.

The repairman told us that one of our problems was that we did not have a 'large' enough motor on the opener.

I thought for a minute, and said that we had the largest one made at that time, a half a horsepower.

He shook his head and said,  'You need a 1/4 horsepower.'

I responded that 1/2 was larger than 1/4 and he said, 'Nooo, it's not.  Four is larger than two.'

We haven't used that repairman since.  This happened in Ipswich, Queensland.

 DILLBERRY:

I live in a semi-rural area.

We recently had a new neighbour call the local council office to request the removal of the WOMBAT CROSSING 
sign on our road. 


The reason:  'Too many wombats are being hit by cars out here! I
 don't think this is a good place for them to be crossing  anymore.' 

Story from Collingwood, Melbourne.

 DILLBERRY:

I was at the airport, checking in at the gate when an airport employee asked,  'Has  anyone put anything in your luggage without your knowledge?' 

To  which I replied, 'If it was without my knowledge, how would I know?'

He smiled knowingly and nodded, 'That's why we ask.'

This  happened in Elizabeth S.A.

DILLBERRY: 

The  pedestrian light on the corner beeps when it's safe to cross the street.

I was crossing with an 'intellectually challenged' co-worker of  mine.

She asked if I knew what the beeper was for.

I explained that it lets blind people know when the light is red.

Appalled, she responded, 'What on earth are blind people doing driving?'

She  is a government employee in Adelaide P.O.

DILL: 

When  my husband and I arrived at the garage to pick up our car after a  service, we were told the keys had been locked in it. 


We went to the service department and found a mechanic working feverishly to unlock the driver’s side door.

As I watched from the passenger side, I instinctively tried the door handle and discovered that it was unlocked.

‘Hey,' I announced to the mechanic, 'it’s open!'

His reply, 'I know. I already did that side.'


STAY ALERT!    They walk among us... and breed!

Moon Bitcoin

 What is Moon Bitcoin?

Moon Bitcoin is a bitcoin faucet - a site that dispenses a small amount of Bitcoin to users who visit their site. They make their money from the advertising on their site, though you are under no obligation to click on any of their ads. 

Whereas most faucets only allow you to claim infrequently - some only once a day, Moon Bitcoin allows you to claim every 5 minutes! 

However the faucet fills up over time, - quite quickly initially but gradually slows down until you make a claim.  You may prefer to claim smaller amounts every five minutes, or visit once a day and claim the larger amount that will have built up while you were away!

Furthermore you can rocket your claim amounts by taking advantage of various bonus schemes. 


Daily Loyalty Bonus

You will earn a % bonus which builds up for every consecutive day that you make at least one faucet claim. This bonus increases by 1% per day, up to a maximum of 100% (which means your faucet payouts are doubled!!!)


So for example, if you made a claim yesterday and then make another claim today you will get a bonus of 1% on top of your usual claim amount. If you then claim again tomorrow, your bonus will increase to 2%, then 3% the day after and so on up to 100%. 

However if you miss a day then your bonus will reset back to 0% and you must build it up again.

So simply make a faucet claim at least once every day and your earnings will ROCKET!!

Moon Bitcoin uses Coin Pot for instant payment of your earnings. If you do not already have a Coin Pot account then you must register first.

Referral Bonus

Refer your friends, enemies and everyone else to Moon Bitcoin and receive a massive 50% lifetime commission on all their faucet claims! All commission payments are paid instantly to your CoinPot account.

Additionally, for each active referral that you have, you will get a bonus 1% (up to a maximum of 100%) added on to every claim that you make from the faucet. (A referral is considered to be "active" if they have made at least 1 faucet claim in the previous 72 hours)

Mystery Bonus

Finally there is a Mystery Bonus scheme, but if I told you what that was, it would no longer be a mystery!

Bonus Bitcoin

What is Bonus Bitcoin?

Bonus Bitcoin is a completely FREE bitcoin faucet paying out up to 5,000 satoshi every 15 minutes. Also, at the end of each day (around midnight UTC) you will receive an automatic 5% bonus added to your current account balance - provided you made at least one faucet claim during the previous day.

As of 6th July 2017 all payments from Bonus Bitcoin are made instantly and directly into your CoinPot account. They also run a very generous affiliate/referral program: Ask your friends and colleagues to sign up using your referral link and receive 50% commission from every claim that they make from the faucet. (Note: No referral commission is paid on the daily bonus)


How much can I earn?

Faucet claims

They aim to be one of the highest paying bitcoin faucets around! So to ensure that their claim amounts are kept as high as possible, they automatically adjust the rate based on a number of factors including the BTC v USD exchange rate and their advertising income. In theory you can claim up to 5,000 satoshi every 15 minutes, theough the curent average is around 7 satoshi. Once you register and sign in you will be able to see what the current average rate is per claim.


Referral commission

You also have unlimited potential to increase your earnings by using their referral scheme which pays 50% lifetime commission.


Bonuses, promotions and competitions

As the name suggests, they also run a variety of ways to boost your earnings via their Bonus schemes - along with frequent special promotions and competitions. 

The current bonus scheme pays a daily 5% bonus of the total of all faucet claims and referral commission earned over the previous 72 hours (3 days) - providing you make at least one faucet claim during the previous day. 
(Please note: We will be changing our bonus schemes from time to time, to keep things interesting and introduce new, exciting ways to boost your faucet income).

Paraprosdokians
