I've not shared many pics lately but here is one from the sunset last night on the seafront at...

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

I've encountered the "wrong type of snow" that caused rail chaos on Shrove Tuesday back in 1991. Unfortunately I'd been to a funeral in London of a fellow biker who'd lost her battle with cancer and...

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

Re: Smile of the day - What is yours?

Re: The All new Reeder Megathread

Chester has some amazing roman remains, a nice cathedral, wall walk, some cracking old pubs and some lovely buildings. And it rained most of the time we were there... Great place for a long...

Re: The All new Reeder Megathread

Just had an interesting job interview for a new contract. The FD seemed very nice and the interim planning lead I'd be working with seemed to be on the same wavelength as me in several ways. She...

There are signs all over the place, just as there are for the congestion charge, as you head towards the LEZ (low emission zone). The automated cameras don't know you've not checked eligibility so...
