The belt drive, when sit up properly, should be positive and clean.
So many times on an adverse, I have thrown a chain trying to downshift resulting in oily fingers for the rest of the day.

The "shift-on-the-go" belt drive is on every ride-on tractor mower today.

Hi, belts have to be tight so as to not slip. [or be cogged] Chains provide the least resistance/friction. Belts and chains can break.

When I raced mountain bikes 10 years ago I put a new chain on every three months. But I was clocking 2000 miles of single track a year at the time. Also the rear cog got replaced every time the chain did. It wears too.

We have a nice lemon tree that spends the summer on our patio and the winter in our sun room. It has about 15 or so lemons this year. We also have an Japanese orange tree with a bumper crop. They apparently liked our hot summer. They're both about 3-4 feet tall. We have Bougainvillea, Hibiscus, Jasmine, and other plants. Susan raises Plumerias, and we have a half dozen or so from a couple feet to over 8 feet tall. That's just part of it. They all came inside a few days ago, so our sun room is pretty jammed. We have 9 parakeets in a flight cage that live in there also. It is our little tropical refuge in the cold winter.

Hi, Ken. My lemon tree has to stay outside. It's in front of my house and has lemons all year around. We bag them up and give them to family and friends so I don't have to trash too many of them. We have a few Plumerias too. The little ones in our back yard give us quite a few flowers, but the one in front next to our lemon tree [just to the right] has only given us about a dozen flowers in about ten years. we don't know why this plumeria plant doesn't want to flower.

Bob,
Those are nice looking lemons. I keep telling Susan we should move to a place where she could plant all this stuff in the yard. If I was going to take a guess, I would say that the Plumeria does not like living in the shade of the lemon tree.

Dave,
The cats at first were intrigued with the birds, put once they figured that the couldn't get them, they kind of lost interest.

Okay. I can understand two Maclarens and the Caterham 7. But the Jaguar e-type makes the list, yet Rolls-Royce and Bentley don't even get an honorable mention? Something screwy there. Jaguar E-type is a garage queen that spends more time being repaired than driven.

Maybe it is actually the "ten British cars most likely to break down".

Hi, I was expecting to see some real old classic English cars not about half of them as new cars. Too new to know if they really are the best.
