That’s what I call a grounding

I was shown the following photo in September’s issue of Practical Boat Owner. Just goes to show that cardinal buoys are there for a reason and you shouldn’t pass the wrong side of them! What is incredible is that due to the shape of the bottom of the keel, they didn’t tip over and were able to return and sail off after a full French lunch ashore – you couldn’t get more lucky if you tried.

Murphy & The Bricks

To much delight and amusement I heard this song on the car radio on my way back to Swindon today and it made me laugh so much I had to ease off the accelerator and move into the slow lane to compose myself. Hope you find it as hilarious as I did!

According to this article on the BBC, this is precisely what happened. It also looks like the youth responsible is going to get in serious trouble when he gets home.

This was featured this morning on BBC Radio Swindon so I thought I’d share it with those of you who have yet to hear it. The tune certainly made me chuckle.

I am currently on the train back from York and as we approached Doncaster the announcement came over the PA system to tell us we had nearly arrived at the station. The announcement was accompanied with a weather report forecasting dark clouds hanging over the area due to the fact the conductor’s mother in law resided in the city. Much laughter and amusement ensued throughout the carriage.
