A personal message...

This goes out to the driver of a black BMW, index V174KVP, who not ten minutes ago, overtook me on the zigzag markings of a pelican crossing, uphill, on the wrong side of the road, into the face of a downhill-travelling bus coming the other way.

Matey, next time you want to try becoming crunchy salsa, do it on someone elses' time, eh? Forgetting that it's totally illegal to overtake on Pelican Crossing zigzag markings, you tried to commit suicide by bus - a remarkably selfish way of offing yourself.

Be considerate next time: why not drive off a cliff, instead?

Drip drip drip little April showers my *#@!

Well, not with a whimper, but a flood warning, instead: Summer's finally over, by the look of it. The photo is of one of the main roads near where I live, on my way to work this morning.

Oh, brilliant. As if the tubes weren't bad enough!

Well, now. The tube is running a fairly conprehensive set of engineering works at weekends at the moment. A fair few bus companies are doing well off this, of course, running replacement bus services. And now the trams are getting in on the act - almost. They seem to have forgotton on bit, though.

They're not laying on any replacement bus services.

Which means that my trip to and from work is going to be stuffed up one side and burgered down the other for a week, in a fortnight or so.

Oh deep, frabjouous, joy.
