In England(except London) you have to wait till the women's state pension age,which is 66 and due to rise even higher. Can someone explain to me why this blatant discrimination is...

    Pond life idiot bus lane story

    So on today’s training ride I looped home another way through a city centre. I took a bus lane as it was traffic free thus safer. Sign is mon-fri 0700-1600.

    A bus driver today

    I noticed the driver of a bus full of passengers driving past me kept looking down. I looked in his cab as he drove past and saw that he was texting on his phone. Nice to know that he cared about the safety of his passengers!

    So glad I have free bus pass!

    Today, my wife and I decided to take our grandson, ( 4 years old) on the bus to Llandudno. The journey only takes about 20 minutes so it was a change from the car. On the way back my wife said to me:" Do you know how much this journey would have cost us if we had to pay?" Of course I didn't as...
