Dept Chrimbo meal this evening. The others are on a mission but I managed to sneak away as they lurched to the next pub. I'll regret it in the morning but it was a good session.

One day doing that is going to get your face punched in. People don't like being told they are doing wrong especially if you're not an officer of the law.

Mine today is being the other 50% of Gorillaz. Jamie Hewlett the artist at a book signing. I took him home made lemon cupcakes, and he took my email as he'd like to see the media centre at Lord's.

Not if she was " Samantha Ayres who was 27 minutes into a hands free phone call when she hit David Kirk, with her whole vehicle on the wrong side of the road at a bend. The 26-year-old motorcyclist was killed "
Jailed yesterday for 3 years.

Hands free, completely legal! As is tuning the radio, arguing with your partner and looking over you shoulder shouting at the kids.

Default Smile of the day - What is yours?

I found a new way to wake up. New to me anyway.
Riding in the freezing cold at 630 am to the physio and then be strapped to an electrotherapy machine at full blast for half an hour.

If the cold didn't wake me then the shocks to my leg have!

The human brain cannot deal with attention required for any phone call while controlling a vehicle, hands free or otherwise, it is different to listening to radio (as proven in countless trials where people were asked to do different things, including hands free while on simulators, after any kind of phone call they were unable to name 90% of hazards that had flashed on the simulator screen, which is hugely scary).

People who use hands free will justify it as legal, but that does not mean it is right (especially a 30 minute call initiated by the driver - how cynical). Hopefully soon the law will be changed and devices fitted to vehicles to only allow 999 calls while vehicle is moving - hands free addicts (how many of the calls are actually necessary) will justify till they are blue in the face, but research proves otherwise. They reckon phones in cars cause more deaths than drunk drivers.
