Solid rain yesterday and so no bike-riding to spot The Flying Scotsman. Ditto today – it’ll be up here again in September, might get a pic or two then.
There’s more ‘talk’, in the papers, about phasing-out the one penny piece. In one south American country they’ve removed umpteen noughts from monetary values to make their currency – The Bolivar I think – viable. Apparently it is working. Can’t they do that here? In the 1970’s a car, say a Cortina, was about £1,500.00p. Now they’re at least £15,000.00p, some are £150,000.00p. The cars aren’t much different, but cash is greatly devalued. Losing a nought might work here too, making the olde penny viable again?
In India (oh yes) they’re currently building what will be the world’s largest statue. It’s of an Indian leader, (called Patel) and is costing well over £220,000,000.00p to build. It’ll be twice as tall as The Statue of Liberty and has taken five years to build. Great what foreign aid can do isn’t it? ‘Bout time we got some!
Apparently folk concerned wanted to ‘kill off’ James Bond so he could re-generate. (Like Dr. Who) It annoyed Mr Boyle too it seems. Unless it was his idea?!

    We are a bit like India,all the cut backs and austerity but still wasting money on HS2. Bond’s getting a bit hackneyed anyway!!?

    Mmm, HS2 is a joke. We don’t need it – we do need reasonable train services – but that’s difficult, it seems.
    Bond films mediocre lately. They need good original plots – but why should writers give them something they can use themselves.
