    Curious to know what they look like, there seem to be NO images for these at all on the Web! Captured alien technology? Will I get a visit from the Men in Back for even asking this?

    Where will you be this X-mas and how are you travelling

    I'll be round my nephew's house. He has two young daughters (6 and 4) so me and nearby relatives will be round there. Still racking my brain as what to get them (got Monday off to finish shopping). Getting there involves a weird form of transport involving moving my legs back and forth...

    passengers who stand when there are seats available

    ...And what's with people who stand in the way of the fold down seats? If they want to stand, why block it for others?

    Your Phone

    Mine, a Samsung E250 is now in a persistent vegetative state after getting a bit damp ie the button's don't work. Looks like I'll have to trudge out in the pouring rain tomorrow to get a new one. Not entirely convinced to get a smartphone yet.

    Stupid/amusing rail-related dreams

    FGW HST with mismatched power car?

    I saw an FGW HST going North out of Bristol between Filton and Patchway this afternoon, which appeared to have the leading power car in a silver-grey livery. Anyone know what and why, or was it just the heat messing with my brain?
