  1. Image 5 has a "floating bus stop". Are they sending buses down the river?
  2. People have a natural magnetism. If the vaccination has enhanced mine, then I'm all for it. 😁
  3. Thought it was my stomach rumbling. 😋
  4. Don't read too much into that, though. A friend in the medical industry, who was double jabbed + 2 a while back. has just recovered from Covid. He reported that "when I was feeling really ill (a 24 hour period) I was producing negative lateral flow and PCR tests. It was a few days after that positive lateral flow & PCR appeared. My GP tells me they are seeing this in the vaccinated population. Had I not rechecked on home lateral flows twice daily and a second PCR, I would have merrily gone to work last week , or to the shops, travel etc." So, had he been ill enough to go into hospital, he would have tested negative on arrival.
  5. There's supposed to be a horse tram track on there by next summer blue moon.
  6. "based upon observed pedestrian desire lines" Do I have Y shaped wrinkles on my face?
  7. Trouble is, vaccination is not stopping the infection spreading. It is only making the infection more tolerable when you catch it. Yeah, so I can live with that, I hope. The jab will help to keep you out of hospital, so it's got to be worth having. Guernsey publishes stats on how many people with Covid have been jabbed. Nearly half their recent cases have been double jabbed. It's not going to go away any time soon. No point being scared of it any more. Just take care, and use a bit of common sense as you go about your normal life, and choose the countries you holiday in carefully!
  8. For comparative purposes, there is an inquest report just out into the fatal tram crash in Croydon in 2016, where the tram was going excessively fast. It appears that the driver may not have been sleeping too well. The verdict was that it was an accident. "The inquest heard that the tram went into a very tight corner, just before the tram stop, at 73km/h (45mph). The speed limit was 20km/h (12mph). " "The foreman of the jury said: "The tram driver became disorientated, which caused loss of awareness in his surroundings, probably due to a lack of sleep. "As a result of which, the driver failed to brake in time and drove his tram towards a tight curve at excessive speed. "The tram left the rails and overturned on to its right side, as a result of which the deceased [were] ejected from the tram and killed.""
  9. It is worse than bonkers, it is tantamount to criminal damage. When planning (or lack of it) goes badly wrong. Lessons should be learned. An update on it, with a link to the petition..
  10. It's to be hoped that they do a proper job, and then keep it maintained, rather than just allow it to silt up again. Heysham has suffered from many years of neglect.
  11. I don't think he ever leaves the Island by boat, otherwise he'd make sure somebody got Heysham Port properly dredged, and kept it so.
  12. Presumably the "worker" is the one who is leaning on the shovel.
  13. Perhaps they're white lies?
