Watched a video of a group of cyclists trying to unstick a bike from an electric fence. Fabulous.

Re: What's made you smile today? (Part II)

So how did it end up on the electric fence? It would suggest they were trespassing and dropped the bike when hopping a fence but we all know cyclists have such a respect for all laws

My smile would be I'm off work today..which is good as my road looks like this

Haha, who could say! Although I suspect you may be on the right track.

We don't get snow in Bournemouth, but do at home, and my sister sent me this of my lil car with an even littler smattering of snow.

Re: What's made you smile today? (Part II)

Approaching a T-junction to join another road, turning right. Young lad, too fast from my left, already cutting the corner, found that he had to realign to go around me. Oops! Don't fancy alloys make a lovely crack when they strike a kerb. Don't tyres make a loud pop when they burst.
