Misty morning in Worcester Park

It's going to be a hot one today according to the forecasts but until the sun breaks through there's a misty morning out there to enjoy. Now where did I put my flip-flops?

Return of the Roadworks

After the mixed results that met their first attempt to mess up the traffic in Worcester Park the two fine men assigned to this important task are having another crack at bringing work to underemployed psychotherapists and anger management counsellors of the area. Anyone know why the magic number for workmen seems to be set at two? Is there some complex algorithm at work that means that having more than two would cause twice the congestion... or halve it...

More gadgets

On the subject of new gadgets Blogger has just released an iPhone app to allow myself and any fellow Blogger users to update on the move rather than the somewhat clunky 'post by email' thing that I've had to rely on in the past. Hopefully you'll be able to tell whether it makes any practical difference soon.

Time for a new gadget?

As anyone who knows me can testify I love gadgets and web widgets of all shapes and sizes. For instance on a working day I rarely leave the house in the morning without having checked the weather page, the rain radar and the train times with a passion verging on the obsessive/compulsive so imagine my joy when I found out that TFL are providing live bus times from a bus stop of your choice! All you have to do is head to http://countdown.tfl.gov.uk/ and stick in your postcode and it will let you select the nearest bus stop, like the example shown below:.

It's almost a shame that I rarely need to get a bus, but perhaps you might find it useful!

Impeccable Timing

With the unerring ability to get up the noses of Worcester Park residents the roadworks are due to seal off the end of Balmoral Road today... the day before he new school year is due to start at Cheam Common Infants and Junior Schools. Parents trying drop off their children can expect a new level of traffic chaos and if you're thinking of going to Sainsburys anytime soon have a quick think about how they're going to get their deliveries with the roadworks in place...
