  2. cyclists with a death wish .. dont half get some around here was a few cars back from the leaders on a local dual carriageway yesterday , when this cyclist came right across the road and onto the midway crossing point , causing the leading cars to slap on brakes and some horn blaring ... cyclists response , the good old finger !! things to be learnt ?? the day before that was a windy day , what did I see , a lycra warrior battling along the same road in a strong side wind , 2 meters to his left , a safe path FFS !!! He caused the traffic to bunch up and the poor little old dear in a Micra behind me nearly hit him when he got blown sideways , across the 1.5m gap she had left him . thankfully I had a rear facing dash cam that would of helped her out if she had connected ...

  8. Giving the car /dish washing fluid that makes your hands softer a swerve and replaced it with some supermarket germ killing washing up fluid . Seems my increased use of the stuff since I stopped working by doing more washing up at home has resulted in some excema and soreness , which has now reduced a lot thanks to the change of washing up fluid .....

  13. the tree backing on to us is as flat as a pancake on our and next doors side of the fence , never said anything as it cushions the noise from the by pass , the screaming brats , the voice of the fish wife , and does not block our sun , the tree along with the other trees does a good job of screening out the houses over the back ...
