Morning All :wave:

A little cooler this morning after rain last night (not sure why it is still raining in May, unheard of for this part of the world .scratch) am not complaining that it is cooler as yesterday got up to 39C and it will only get hotter as we move into the summer months, if the rain stays away :lol:

Already conducted an evacuation drill, more of a head-counting and financial check as the subbie stated they had 80 people on site but only 43 were accounted for (as thats all that were on site) in the evacuation drill, we will see what the outcome of that one is ;)

Try and get a :coffee2: before anyone else get in, this no coffee in public is doing my head during Ramadan :o

Onwards & Upwards ./thumbsup..

Have a great Thursday ./thumbsup..

Well it's quiet around here today.

So this morning, I went out to a local Business Expo that was being put on. On my way out of the village, the Level Crossing was busted because someone had damaged a barrier arm. The far side one is broken off and laying on the ground.

So there's traffic queuing both ways and I walked back to my car after having found out what the problem was and a middle age woman pulls up behind my car. I kindly advised her that the crossing was out of action because some idiot had broken the barrier so she'd have to go the long way around to which she replied...'Oh it was like that earlier, I got across OK..'
I just shook my head and walked away; the temptation to call her a 'Stupid ***' was rapidly rising to the fore...

These imbeciles are out there all the time... all then went well at the expo, although I had a worry that there were no marshalls controlling the parking. When I cam out, I was lucky enough to catch the person who was just parking behind me.... because none of the other idiots (Red Arrow) had realised they were now blocking a complete row of car in, despite clearly having walked through the two rows that were there to get to the building concerned!

Good evening Will, Berni and everybody else :D

I've had one of those days where there's so much to do, many things have been started but not finished and something else jumps the queue. Frustrating to say the least.

Tomorrow's a new day though and I get to take my bike with an engine to my work for the first time :D .cheers

I'll need to give it a name...
