Post snow

The snow had cleared by the time i got home. There wasn't even the merest suggestion of snow.
This morning there was more snow, but by the time I put all my layers on - tights, socks, t shirt, top, jumper, jacket, the snow had stopped. I paused on the way to take a picture of this misuse of an ASL on the Old Kent Road:

At work, the boiler wasn;t working so it was a bit cold. It'll be colder tomorrow. I've been on a diet for some time now, and have lost two stone since the start of January. I'm starting to crave certain things. I miss pasties, having had at least one a week for some time now. There are some very nice pasty shops in London these days. I nearly went for it yesterday. And I really fancy drinking some beer, though my friend in Spain is coming over next week - so a guaranteed drinking session to come.

My cat on the exercise bike. He liked it up there, and stayed on it for about 20 minutes.

Me at work yesterday:

it's me

It snowed out here in darkest Kent and somehow I comletely missed it. I was asleep by 11.30 last night and overslept this morning. It was all over, and a couple inches of white stuff lay around as far as I could see, which is quite a long way as my house is at the top of a hill.
I had to walk part way into work - just down to the main road. From there it was business as usual including the usual bastards in cars, lorries and buses who seem to thin their every fart is more important than anything a cyclist might need to do in oder to get to work.

modern technological problem solved

I finally worked out how to get photos of my phone. Here's one I took earlier:

and another - the Sultans Elephant in the summer:

I took these in Spain in April:

London Astoria

The LA as it is known here seems to be employing a very literate sign writer with no clue about current bands. In the past few weeks I've seen "Block Party" go up on their big sign above the door and in a couple of days got changed to "Bloc Party" but on the same day "Get Cape Where Cape Fly" appeared. Two days later this was corrected also.
So Saddam got whacked. Its sick the way our leaders queued up to appear on the media and deny any responsibilty for killing a man who was in effect still the legal head of state of Iraq. And that it was done in such an offensive manner, makes it worse.
Now he's dead the main witness to any possible trial of western is unavailable. The executions continue - soon Bush, Thatcher et al will be able to breathe easy. 
Weather - though its not cold - not really - this winter has been abnormally wet and windy. I got soaked this morning.
