What is with e-cigarettes. It seems the people that smoke them have to buy the biggest machines possible that kick out so much smoke that if you get stuck behind someone smoking one you can barely see where you are going! Seems to that there is more of a passive smokging issue with e-cigarettes that there was with normal ones.

The most pointless street sign

We are in the middle of winter. With dark and stormy sky’s the dark mornings are even darker. Despite all this I still see cyclists riding along the road, wearing dark clothing, on bikes with no lights! In some cases they are even riding on the wrong side of the road and running red lights!! […]

So the rail company I use to commute in to London introduced a new timetable today. The new timetable means I need to get a train eight minutes earlier from my home station. The journey in to London today seemed to be a lot more ‘stop start’ than usual and this resulted in me getting […]

So here we go again. Tube strike number two. Managed to leave work early but the trains are already getting busy. Just for once this is not a strike about money! This time it is about work / life balance. For that I have some sympathy. It’s just a shame that the only way the […]

So I have just been thinking about the car I would most like to own if money was no object! Here it is, a 1969 Dodge Charger R/T The ultimate would be one with a 426 Hemi V8 with a four speed manual transmission. Dodge Charger R/T 426 V-8 Hemi 4-speed, model year 1969, version […]

As A result of this access to the station involves negotiating temporary ramps over curbs, walking down a short flight of steps and then climbing a large flight of steps to reach the station entrance. What is the […]

So there I am sitting on this packed train the other morning trying to have a doze on the way to work. The train was packed to the gills with standing room only. There was a young guy sitting in the isle seat of the the three seats opposite me who was starting to doze […]

Why is that the people who make railway carriages can’t make seats wide enough for the average population? Today I got sandwiched up against the train window by a large lady who wanted to read her news paper. I suppose I can’t really blame her, but there simply wasn’t enough room on her seat for […]
