Many thanks for your responses. Yithian I assume that by "seemingly miraculous man" you do not believe in psychic ability - I am inclined to agree with you if that's the case but have an open mind . I tell the story as it was and exactly how the subsequent events panned out. I offer no explanation and am sure that a lot wont believe - I personally don't care either way. Could merely have been coincidence( and I think coincidences occur much more frequently than we think) but then I fail to understand how he could tell me that I had just removed a sidecar from a bike - and no I didn't turn up at the meeting on an old bike which had witness marks where a sidecar had been! The guy describes himself as a psychic and lives locally. I presume he is still around but I was told he has been prosecuted (unrelated to psychic abilities!) so I would not like to "recommend" him - he clearly didn't see that one coming! No the meeting was not a religious or esoteric group - I am neither religious or esoteric.
