The road to hell?

Either you are from what I label as the “knitted cardigan bride”…the hunchback be-moaners who sit in their wing backed armchairs, awaiting that inevitable day they expire from this planet to go off to do something more useful.

Electrified Classics and Smart Roads (Thought for the day)

There are things I never really want to know about… How commodities and derivatives work, the tax form I file every year, the mathematical complexity behind Mandelbrot sets and personal pensions; all equally mind gurglingly, brain pummellingly depressing. Excitement is a positive thing – it engages all the energetic parts within you. It tends to…
