    11th Hour 11th Day of the 11 Month

    was on a domestic BA flight this morning and whilst the winds delayed our arrival into heathrow the captain then came on the intercom and politely called for 2 minutes silence at precisely 11 am. was very eerie being above the south of england gently circling in a perfectly and respectfully...

    C63 test drive ends with a golf in the boot!

    i've been in a situation where i've pulled out onto a dual carriageway (40 limit) and found a pedestrian crossing the road right in front of me. he had been waiting for the same gap i had apparently. fortunately i changed my mind and stopped as did the car behind but it was close for me and...

    The Jackals are circling.

    whenever i travel i am always struck by how poor tv usually is and how much the BBC is respected by other people - even nonEnglish speakers. I'm glad - there is precious little left that we are the best at.

    What SLR camera ?

    another Nikon D90 owner here, I combined it with their 18-200mm lens. very happy with it - I too got quite into reading the reviews about various cameras and at around the amount of money you are looking to spend it's hard to go wrong. There simply isn't a "bad" choice if you stick with the...
