Snow business of mine

Perhaps I'm missing something here, but what is it with people today who just panic when it snows ? Back in my youth, its a while back I know, most cars where rear wheel drive, most people drove around fine on the roads, most people didn't embed their car into a nearby wall.

Today, there seems to be a complete lack of respect for the snow and ice, I see people driving like there is nothing scary about driving on a slippery surface, I see drivers spinning their wheels in such a way they just polish the surface for the next car. Its not just about the rear wheel drive mob, its not unusual to see a big BMW or Porsche drive happily up a hill covered in snow, followed by a fidgitty little Corsa or Peugeot, wheels buzzing for all their might, before coming to a standstill halfway up and looking puzzled...

Roll on spring I say, I'm tired of the muppets !

Perhaps I should post more ?

Given it's been a couple of months since I last posted, I either have nothing to say, been very busy or just plain lazy !

What's new ? Well Christmas has been and gone, had a great set of prezzies this year, including a load of map type stuff, a coffee machine with milk froffer and something called a Sonos - a music streaming device

My back is up and down, but mostly having issues with my shoulder, which is annoying to say the least... The snow has played havok with my schemes on site and I feel a real arse walking acros the icy carpark in three inch steps - roll on summer !!!

Speaking of which, hope to get down south this spring, then get over to Italy again, by car... Really enjoyed it last year, so why not do it again !

Anyways, bedtime for me... Night !
