I'm Red Till Dead

John Robertson
I'm aware of that. Under the new rules I'm supposed to give way to pedestrians waiting to cross a side road that I'm intending to turn into.

None of which applies in this instance.
I wasn't turning into a side road, and he sure as hell wasn't waiting to cross.
I was travelling along the main road, lights were green as I passed through. He came down a side road (where both traffic and pedestrian lights would have been red if he'd looked), kept on running straight across in front of me without even glancing to his left or right or checking his stride.

Giving way to people crossing at junctions was already in the HC. I was failed for reversing when someone was crossing a junction despite the fact that they were across the junction before I reached it.

Yes it's a stupid thing for them to do. I didn't realise that you was going straight across the junction. As a driver though you have a responsibility to be aware of other road users and react to their actions, including the idiots

Deserves to get squashed.

They run past my house everyday, in the middle of the road, backs to traffic with earphones on. Arrogant tw@ts!

Yes. Brave, or foolish, twats too.

I made one trip into London when I'd spent the day at work in Wyton and had to get to Richmond in order to meet up for a gig. Against my better judgement I went with the sat nav rather than just going around the M25.

Never again. About an hour into the journey, it starts getting dark and people are still walking straight into me from the pavement. You have to assume that every pedestrian is a lemming and then spend all of your time being screamed at by other drivers.

It's absolute madness down there, with people suddenly appearing from between parked cars to cross roads, multi-lane roads with signs swinging you you from one lane to another as you travel along it and cyclists weaving in and out passing on the left or right as their whim takes them and at times one passing one side and another the other. It was chaos.

The A11 was a road I particlarly hated. There seemed to be signs about every 10 yards and you seemed to get swung left and right across the three lanes. It probably isn't too bad if you do it daily but when you did it a couple of times a year like me it seemed like a lunatic had set the road up.

I was aware and did react. Hence why my bonnet isn't dented and he isn't in QMC.... If he carries on like that though he will be sooner or later.

Had a word with two of my neighbours,

the first though it’s acceptable to hammer and saw outside at 10-45pm ( trying to saw quietly is like trying to open crisps at the cinema) just saw already and get it done,

the other blamed me for having my window open while him and his stink pig wife with friends made unbearable attempts outside to enter the Eurovision Song Contest into the early hours, this isn’t the first time it’s most weekends, as the captain in cool hand luck said “what we have here is a failure to communicate” …… well what he wants he gets :yes:

I've just come out even - as I popped my head over the fence and told the noisy little spotty 15 sods out the back to turn their music down was feeling good until I realised I'd shouted at them to "turn it down for fuck's sake, it's not a bloody disco....."

Still it worked all the same

Shoulda told 'em to play some Depeche Mode, otherwise you'd go 'round there and cut the plug off their f***ing sound system. :yes:

I'm off there in July, can't bloody wait.

As I said to Andy, wherever you are on the island, make time to visit Rhodes Town, it is fantastic, and you can lose yourself wandering about for a couple of hours before stumbling upon a secluded beer garden that serves extraordinarily cold Greek beer.

Oh, and if you order a „large“ beer, you’ll get this bad boy, which is four pints in a glass shaped like a boot (it is representing the feet of the Colossus of Rhodes, all that is left of that famous statue):

It wouldn’t be a proper holiday without spending a few hours walking miles and taking in a bit of culture would it? It’s a bit tougher now with two little ones but we do try and make time for a bit of exploring. We’re staying in Faliraki so not too far from Rhodes Town.

Faliraki is right on the bus routes. You can get a cheap as chips Bus that drops you right in the centre of Rhodes Town and you can walk from there.

Go to Lindos, it's lovely but don't stay as its expensive. If you've rented a car get down to Prasonisi beach, kids will love it. Go to Epta Piges and go through the tunnel, also check out the butterfly valley with the kids. Pefki is decent night out, lots of family restaurants and bars.

Also, go to Kostas and Elenas in Charaki. Go about 6/7, see the sky change colour over the bay, while eating amazing food but spending very little, the whole team (mum & dad cook and their offspring serve) are amazing.

I've loved this break so far, we're off to Rhodes Town tomorrow. The only problems I've encountered are entitled tourists from Essex (doubt I'll be doing 5 star again due to the customers), not doing Greek Islands earlier and the flight's quite long.

"I've just" seen a Lancaster bomber fly over my house.... you know as soon as you hear the rumble of those Merlin engines in the distance that there's something special in the air and I just popped by head out in to the garden as it flew by - magnificent sight.

Found a picture from Wembley 92 against Utd taken inside, also a picture of 89 old Trafford replay before kickoff and several with the boys and me 91-92 taken in the flat Central Ave Bridgford,

lovely and also sad in so many ways,

never thought the good times would end,

never thought I’d live in a world where I needed to push to piss :(

Proud of my Missus. She's been building me this pergola for my climbing rose, single handed, all by herself, whilst I've been sat in the garden suppin' ale.
