    Lovely ride in today. Really sunny and dry, and my legs were having a fast morning.

    Then I had a dust cart turn right on a red when I was half way across the junction. He wasn't even waiting to turn right -he was behind the line and behind another car that had crossed the line on red. Fortunately I heard him pull off before I could see him.

    Then there's Bristol Street. 3 lanes of fast moving traffic. You have to take the middle of the inside lane to stop everyone passing close. But you still get a few who, despite having to wait for a gap in the middle lane, still pass as close as they can and then cut in. It's as if they think they're teaching you a lesson.

    This morning there were three of them, and enough of a spread to show that the idiots come from all groups. A ned in a Nova with a hole in his exhaust, a family man in a Picasso, and an older bloke in a faceless Korean thing.

    But I'm still alive, and they're not going to stop me. I love my commute.

    Why do I suddenly get a mental image of LLB sitting behind a desk, stroking a white cat and uttering those immortal words, "KILL HIM !!" ? :smile:

    Whatever happened to wossisface? Heard somewhere that he'd died, otherwise I might have suspected the SS.

    It was Theo Stegers in the dust cart. It's safer to jump you see.....

    What happened to Theo? Was he just Paul Smith's alterego?

    I would imagine Bristol Street in town can be quite entertaining.

    Glad you're safe, the Nova ratboys will appear less on the roads as the price of fuel goes up.

    What ever happened to PS? And how come you're allowed to write the whole name?

    Paul Smith died of a heart attack last year.

    It was C+ that censored his name.

    I must have committed the same crime - it seems virtually every London cabbie and coach driver hates me.
