    As cyclists it’s our duty to do just this. We should gather en-mass on our bikes beside forecourts and applaud at 7pm....and point and laugh at queueing motorists for the rest of the week.

    Hell, yes. Although I did get a slice of humble pie recently when I realised it’s now part of the Highway Code that traffic should occupy all lanes to capacity on the approach to a merge (Yes, I was one of the holier than thou outside lane holders).
    I’m OK with that new rule until you get the t***s behind that think it’s OK to bully-lane-swap their way up the queues.

    It’s all part of the blame culture. Years of social and media interaction that supports and reinforces the notion that it’s the fault of anyone but yourself.

    Never heard of melmac but as kids we did have a set of Melaware crockery. I remember it vividly; it made a deafening crack noise on the kitchen floor tiles if you dropped it but it never broke or so much as cracked. It was seemingly indestructible and I think my mum still has it and I’d be interested to know if forty + years has caused it to degrade at all.

    Anybody else getting stuck in to the new varieties of Cheddars?
    Red Leicester is one but I just can’t get enough of the Dragons Breath Chilli. Not so easy to find though. They only seem to be available in multipacks and the chilli flavour are pretty elusive so I, erm, stock up if I see them.

    Engine braking can be pretty useless on some vehicles, the electronics step in and adjust the fuelling to reduce the effect. My last car had very effective engine braking and the latest car with the same basic engine and updated fuel system is rubbish.

    As a northern whippet hugger would say it or “thuther” US pronunciation?

    Going back to the pronunciation thing, what’s the big change when using ‘the’ all about? We used to pronounce it ‘thee’ or ‘the’ depending on which word followed. Now we seem to say ‘the’ all the time. When someone say ‘the other’ not ‘thee other’ it makes them sound like they have just tripped on a paving slab.
    Gets right on my t***, it does.

    Hearing a USAnian say the word ‘mirror’ is always amusing.

    Is it just me or does the Marriott logo look a bit like two towers toppling over?
