Watched Strictly this evening and was absolutely blown away by the routine danced by Carlos Acosta to a number from Bizet's Carmen as part of the introduction. Lord have mercy it was bloody, bloody sensational. Shame we can't have more of that stuff and less of the "celebrities". But I don't like Strictly ………….

Driving towards Bellac in thick fog, I didn't see the car behind me until he indicated at the last second to overtake. I turned to my left and mouthed something along the lines of "Fekin tool" ... at two gendarmes. It prompted the driver to switch his lights on, so mission accomplished.
PS if you're reading this M. Flic, you've only got one taillight and one brake light.
During the summer I was riding my motorbike over the Saint Gotthard pass in the pouring rain and zero visibility when, despite proceeding very slowly, I almost ran into the back of a Dutch car with no lights on. Many km later I pulled up alongside him and asked why he was driving without lights. He answered that he did have lights on, the daylight running lights on his car were on all of the time. That’ll be the two LEDs at the front then. I pointed out that that didn’t really help anybody behind him.

Many thanks for that. Looks like a huge selection of stuff with a good website. A shame you have to request prices though. :good:

Totally agree about Carlos Acosta. I do love Strictly and, even though I’d heard of only 4 of the celebs at the start, I find it makes no difference to me. I just love watching their progress through the weeks. On the other hand OH loathes it and finds other things to do when it’s on. Thank goodness we don’t all like the same things - what a dull world it would be.

Talked this morning to a guy doing a survey of our road so I invited him in for a coffee to quiz him as to what he was surveying for.
Apparently it's for a route for fibre optics but unfortunately he's no idea if & when it'll happen.

It will be lasers by the time they get around to upgrading here in darkest Bretagne.
