I've had to start using one. For three months in a row, when I came to the end of my prescriptions I found that I had a different number of tablets left. How I managed it I have absolutely no soddin' idea, and using an organiser is the only way I seem to be able to keep on top things. :(

I have that problem too. I take a small pharmacy daily (or maybe it just seems like that). Different hospital clinics change pills/amend dosage seemingly for fun, so nothing is in sync any more; everything runs out at different times. One of those organisers is vital for me - filling it up is my Friday morning chore.

It's the highlight of a Saturday evening for me. I've used one ever since I forgot to take my pills and ended up in hospital for 17 days!

My first trip to central London in a car for decades. The roads have been totally altered to accommodate bikes. This is actually great and a sensible thing to do. However why gets my goat is even after all that at every bloody traffic light 2 or 3 will, instead of waiting, will simply jump the red when there is a gap in the traffic. Even jumping the cycle only traffic lights! Right in front of Police as there is simply too many and what fine do they get? They will be the first to moan when they are hit or they hit a pedestrian. Twats

Attacks of places of worship. I don’t care is it’s a church mosque or synagogue. I’m not religious but think for those that are these are places of sanctuary and contemplation. To blow people up here in whatever name is simply scum. What’s wrong with people?

We've literally covered the whole country in roads to accommodate cars, and yet the majority of drivers still speed.

I accidentally binned tablets so that I could get all my repeats in sync, hoping that it might help. Fat lot of use it turned out to be. At least it means that I only have one trip to the chemist every two months. :)

Here you go. Figures are even worse for 20mph limits, but I've not got those to hand.

I've looked out of the window and seen some fields and woods, so perhaps the word "literally" has changed its meaning recently.

Here are the 20mph ones -

Key line "Under free flow conditions 87% of cars exceeded the speed limit at the 20mph sites."

(It's even higher for motorcyclists.)

It feels like in the lockdown period everywhere became 20mph !

Not really. Investment in cycling infrastructure is often linked to cyclists' behaviour, as you have done (and, whilst I know you didn't say that, the latter given as a reason not to do the former) yet no-one says we shouldn't spend money on roads until drivers stop speeding.

It is the definition of terrorism. The more despicable the target, the bigger the impact.

Place of worship.
Street market.
School (kindergarden).
Pop concert.
Maternity hospital.
Apartment buildings in Kiev.
A public marathon.
A videod beheading of aid workers with a sawing knife.

Take your pick.

Attacking a military base, a government building or police station just isn't going to cut it anymore.
