Still got snow in East Grinstead (Sainsbury's car park)

I wonder if I might offer this as an example of the quality of education in this country?

This week I've done a few miles on motorways and it seems that many drivers don't get the concept of "average speed cameras". Thus they tear along in roadworks and then suddenly pull in and slam on the brakes when they see the average speed camera. Once they've passed it they tear off again. Huh?

Gimme shelter

One of the best opening riffs in rock music?

Remember that wonderful pink rose in summer? I took this shot when I went out for a walk this afternoon.


bells, originally uploaded by nogbad the bad.

This was here when I moved in. I took this shot because the outline stands out well against the snow as it slowly creeps off the corrugated plastic awning outside the back door.

It must be....

It's being used in a TV advert just now - great song and I lurv this version. It's one of those "makes me smile" tracks. I hope it cheers up anyone going stir crazy in the snow.
