A mate of his rang him to say he'd just been on a train up to London from the West Country, and the guard announced over the tannoy:

"Welcome to this First Great Western service to London Paddington. Life Jackets should be worn at all times, and inflated when leaving the train".

:lol:

Sharlene and I were flying from Tucson, Arizona to Albuquerque, New Mexico once and they gave the whole spiel about life jackets and how the slides could double as rafts if we crashed into water. All this despite the fact that you are pretty much flying over desert or mountains all the way and there are no large bodies of water. The stewardess at least had the decency to look embarrassed by the whole thing. :lol:

It's freakishly warm here, almost 60F today. Not what we usually experience this time of year.

We have the floods and bad weather you guys in the UK are getting on the news here.

Hope everyone and their families are okay. And yeah I realise that you dont have to have your home flooded to be affected. We get rain and bad storms here... but at least it isnt in the middle of winter and bitter cold.

Thinking of you.

Tentative forecasts for snow at the end of the week, Del.

Those poor people who are flooded out.

Is times like these that I am so glad that I live near the top of a hill.
