LOL John,

And I'm sure quite a few of us remember that the Home Office used to have responsibilities in the licensing process!
I'm beginning to understand the significance of the number 42! What I
cannot understand is that the cafe a the end of the universe does not
appear as a POI on my satnav. Perhaps it has been detained for further
questioning by the thought police :)

Thought for today:

What politicians do for science, hopefully science will do for them one day!

Sorry.  That should have been "The Black Cloud".

Thanks Steve,

A point of interest also is the paucity of knowledge among the
populace in
general about the simple basics of GPS etc. I still come across
considerable
numbers of people who believe their satnavs are actually being
"tracked"
by the
satellites! This phenomenon is, of course, often accompanied by even
stranger explanations of how speed camera systems work. It's
possible,
therefore,
that to expect politicians to understand such things may be "a
bridge too
far"!







In the race of life put a big bet on the nag named "Self-Interest" -
He
will
always be in  there trying hard !
