    Last night about 6pm heard / spotted a chap playing the bagpipes in the middle of a field in the suffolk countryside.

    Not the usual thing seen in these parts

    Coming down Roseberry Avenue this morning, a gaggle of, must have been at least 30, maybe 40 traffic wardens waiting at the bus stop. Not usually a herd animal...

    Not all that unusual, but noticable by their reoccurrance over the last week or so, there has been a massive increase in the number of fit girlies (both cycling and jogging/walking) I pass in my commute each day.

    I'm all in favour of global warming if this is the effect of a bit of warmer weather.

    Last June I saw a group of people hula-hooping and one was wearing Hammerpants. Had it been August I wouldn't have given it a second thought, but it was 2 months too early.

    I too have seen a bagpipe playing man!

    Not to odd I suppose but this was on the canal - at lunchtime in the middle of Birmingham - oh and he was smoking a pipe! :evil:

    I'm more used to seeing drug addicts and/or people off "Skint" along the canal usually!!!

    A few years ago - pulled up at some traffic lights behind a private ambulance. As the lights changed the van pulled away sharply, the back doors burst open and a coffin flew out and smashed on the road.

    I didn't hang around to see what was in it (but it was caught on CCTV from a nearby business and sent to the local paper - coffin was empty!)
