Last night, I took the Taxi off the road when the temperatures reached -5'C.

-6'C is, I believe, the temperature at which salted roads start to freeze

A granddaughter, boyfriend and dog booked , some time ago,a log cabin for this weekend in the Forest of Dean. All the travel advice is not to travel in that area (red warning, schools closed. She tried to get the company to agree a postponement but they said "If we are open" she will lose the money she had to pay in advance - the whole fee. I hope, using a mixture of persuasion and implying Small claims court they will relent. As usual their Terms and Conditions are in their favour. Any tips? Apparently the Facebook page for the company is alive with similar complaints. Is force majeure applicable?

Spring is back on again; the thaw has started here.

Why all the fuss about sleeping in the train luggage rack? Such behaviour was perfectly normal for servicemen in the 30s, as was removing the light bulb.
