It's 1934, and Miss G (Eva Green) is a teacher at a private school for girls near the Eastern coastline of England. While most of the teachers at the school are severe and straight-laced women who reinforce its reputation as a repressive environment, Miss G is more youthful and glamorous than her colleagues, and enjoys dropping hints of a free-spirited past to her young charges. Miss G encourages her students to challenge conventional norms of the day, and organizes a diving team at the school that she oversees with great interest. Miss G also sees a danger in the cliques that dominate the school, and she tries to undermine them, much to the annoyance of Di (Juno Temple), who hold a high place in the school's pecking order. But things change for both Miss G and her students when Fiamma (Maria Valverde) enrolls at the school. Fiamma is from Spain and has a strong independent streak; she doesn't look to her peers for approval and insists on doing things her own way, which makes her all the more exotic and appealing to the other students. Fiamma also earns the approval of Miss G, but before long rumors begin to spread that the teacher's interest in her new student is more than academic. CRACKS was the first feature film from director Jordan Scott, whose father is the noted filmmaker Ridley Scott. ...Cracks

Mail Coaches.
Mail Coaches.
I have now started a Flickr site devoted to the days of the horse drawn Mail-Coaches. "Mail-Coaching in the 18th Century" Photo's on there include original coaches, post horns, and Coaching Inns. If you have any photo's you think people will be interested in, please post them on the site, and if you want to, become a member. The first Mail-coach, similair to this one, went from Bath to London. The four horses used to pull the coach were changed every 10 to 15 miles. On a run to London, there were a number of horse changes. Also the drivers would be changed along the route. The only exception was the guard, who stayed with the coach throughout the journey. Travelling on one of these was not cheap, the ordinary man in the street , like me, for example, would not have travelled by coach. Because of the huge investment needed in coaches, horses, and all of the other trades involved, there was a lot of opposition to the railways which came in after about thirty years, and eventually took over the Mail business. The same people who were against the railways were also against the motor car, the result of that was for a time in Britain, a man with a red flag had to walk in front of the car. I'm not sure how long the red flag man had to go in front of a car, but it does show the opposition against anything to do with horses. It is difficult to imagine that all of that happened only about a 120 years ago. The first Mail-coach, similair to this one, went from Bath to London.

It is difficult to imagine that all of that happened only about a 120 years ago. The word Coach, come from the Hungarian town of Kocs which built a vehicle that was copied across Europe. Virtually all Coaches of the period were built using a variety of materials. Wood: Ash, used for the framework of the body. It was tough, fibrous, and lacked elasticity, meaning it was unlikely to warp. Oak, usually, the young growth was used for underframes and wheel spokes. Elm, ideal for floor and roof planks, wheel hubs and naves. It was though, difficult to paint, due to it's strongly marked grain. Mahogany, used for interior and exterior panels, favoured because of it's attractive wood grain and smooth surface. Cedar, this would be used for panels that were to be covered with fabric or leather. Metals: At first,most metal parts, hoops, stays, axles, tyres, and plates, were made of Iron. Iron, had it's problem though, Iron tyres tended to crack and flake. As soon as it became available, Steel was used in place of Iron. Steel, was much stronger, and was ideal for tyres. Copper, was used for Beading, and Sheathing. Brass, was used for Buckles, Rings, Plates, and Door handles. Gun-Metal, was used for Wheels to Axle securing nuts.

1997 BMW 328is – 203,000kms I bought this car in 2001 and drove it until a year ago, my dad drove it for the past year. Always well maintained. Has the following: -Euro OEM Ellipsoid headlights, these are a huge improvement over the north American spec headlights and worth good $$. -OEM M3 front bumper, installed and painted by Korva on 2nd ave. -Aftermarket M3 mirrors -Euro taillights -Summit racing seats, these are quite comfy and match the interior well -MZ3 Short shift kit, UUC clutch stop, -3.23 rear gears with LSD, car accelerates faster with the shorter gears and the LSD is a big improvement over the stock open diff -18” M3 replica wheels, some minor curb rash -Brand new 225 Kumho tires, can’t remember the exact model though -Custom cold air intake with K&N filter in good condition -E46 M3 lip spoiler -4 BMW steel wheels with Michelin Arctic Ice tires, 205’s, they stick like glue in the winter. About 60% tread left -Clarion CD deck, illumination matches the BMW colors, and it sounds amazing with the factory Harmon Kardon 12 speaker sound system -Brand new brakes, brand new ignition/key (no idea why my dad did that), new heater controls, new radiator, new M3 clutch, and a number of other things recently. -Car has power windows and sunroof Here is the not so good stuff. I was in an accident in this car, in front of EAC to be exact. The repair was pretty costly, 15k at the time IIRC (circa 2002), all work was done by Korva, who have a lifetime guarantee on any work they do on the car. They are one of the best body shops if not the best in Vancouver, and I stand behind all the work done by them 100%. They replaced all the sheet metal in the front, the front frame rails were replaced (on E36 BMW’s, they are bolted on, not welded, so replacement is easy and OEM quality). One of the foglights is cracked, they are $35 bucks to replace, so no big deal. My dad somehow bent a panel in the front slightly, it’s an easy repair. The wheels could be refinished for pretty cheap. Otherwise this car drives great, I sold it and bought an E46 M3, but in all truth, I’d rather drive this, never felt better road feel in any other car. I have a truck and another sports car so I don’t need another sporty car. I’m asking $7,000 but willing to take offers. You can e-mail me at cjarrett@ea.com or phone at 604-782-9588

Cracks
"Riveting…while evocative of The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie and Picnic at Hanging Rock, Kohler's writing is so smoothly confident and erotic that she has produced a tale resonant with a chilling power all its own."—Elle

In Sheila Kohler's brilliant 1999 novel, a beautiful schoolgirl mysteriously disappears into the South African veld. Forty years later, thirteen members of the missing girl's swimming team gather at their old boarding school for a reunion, and look back to the long, dry weeks leading to Fiamma's disappearance. As teenage memories and emotions resurface, the women relive the horror of a long-buried secret. A stunning and singular tale of the passion and tribalism of adolescence, Cracks lays bare the violence that lurks in the heart of even the most innocent.

Put adolescents together in a confined environment with only minimal adult supervision, and bad things will happen--a truism in literature as well as life. (Think The Children's Hour, think Lord of the Flies.) But in Sheila Kohler's eerie, atmospheric Cracks, the bad things that will happen are not the ones you might expect, and the message is far more complex than just "Children are savages." (Although they certainly are.) Written in an ominously anonymous first person plural, the novel follows the 12 girls on the swim team at a South African boarding school. They include the jock, the pretty one, the brain, the fat girl, and perhaps most interestingly, the shadowy Sheila Kohler, a storyteller whose tales all "came to the same dramatic finale: violent death..." All of them are in love with the dashing Miss G, their swim instructor, and a "crack," as it turns out, is a crush--the embodiment of all of adolescence's formless yearnings:
When you had a crack you saw things more clearly: the thick dark of the shadows and the transparence of the oak leaves in the light and the soft glow of the pink magnolia petals against their waxy leaves. You wanted to lie down alone in the dark in the music room and listen to Rachmaninoff and to the summer rains rushing hard down the gutters. You left notes for your crack in her mug next to her toothbrush on the shelf in the bathroom. If you accidentally brushed up against your crack and felt her boosie, you nearly fainted.
When they're not swimming, the members of the team amuse themselves by torturing new girls and taking turns fainting in chapel, until Fiamma Coronna throws everything off balance. A breathtaking Italian princess, a first-class swimmer, Fiamma quickly earns the girls' enmity by becoming Miss G's favorite. Worse still, she shows no interest in her teammates at all, and the usual hazing soon escalates to something far more serious. Heat dust, frangipani, adolescent sexuality simmering just under the surface: this could all have gone terribly, terribly wrong. It doesn't, and Kohler's elegant prose is the main reason why. The girls may be overheated, but the author's language never is. --Chloe Byrne
