    !!!!s parking on your drive
    many of the suggestions could end up with you having a conviction for criminal damage that wouldn't look good on your CV (and would probably bar you from travelling the the USA, maybe not a bad thing?).  Just remember the 11th Commandment if you do take action, and that these days must include CCTV in the locality and the possibility of a CCTV system in the car itself.
    From reading the many postings on this subject in Speeed, Plod and the Law in Pistonheads it seems to me that there is nothing legal you can do if someone parks on your drive but doesn't block you in. Just ensure you have a vehicle that is blocked in so the police have something to act on.  If you do crack a legal way to deal with the problem do let us all know. 
    Could Zelandeth park on the local school's drive whilst not blocking anyone in? Sideways across the drive if neccessary.   He might think himself lucky that the parking is only short term around school arriving/departing and that he's not close to an airport  and has someone leave their car for weeks.

    I've got to duck out of this weekend;  after 2 years Mrs K and I finally copped a dose of Covid, not that unexpected having spend a week in a coach with 40 others.  Fortunately we got the current low strength version but we are left feeling weary even after a good night's sleep;  not a good basis for a 300 mile drive each way in high temperatures.
    Being old I had qualified for the fourth booster, and as with the first three suffered no ill effects.  Mrs K not being quite as geriatric doesn't qualify for the fourth booster but having been classed as vulnerable got isssued with a special set of tests, got ill, tested positive and has been issued with anti viral tablets - couriered out from the big Exeter hospital as neither of us were fit to drive to collect them. 
    Hope everyone has a good weekend and NO FTPs

    Following on from BrownNova's post:  on Saturday I went to Camborne for Trevithick Day, the first for two years.
    The Trevithick Society were running their replica of Trevithick's 1801 Puffing Devil up a street in the old fashioned way;  no barriers with pedestrians walking on the road and cars parked on one side.
    The replica looks like the only change from 1801 spec is a better pressure gauge and I would imagine a modern safety valve - just as well at 100psi and the redline at 120psi.
    Boy did it shift;  you'd neeed an Olympic sprinter in front of it with the red flag, made some wonderfull noises as well.  I had a big grin on my face.  Beats a sedate trundle by of traction engines.
