I don't know if this made the national news, but there was a major train disaster narrowly avoided in Liverpool earlier this week. Part of a sheer wall in a deep cutting through the city collapsed onto the main line. A train was tootling along at 50mph with over a hundred passengers onboard. If the driver hadn't seen the warning and braked in time, the train would have derailed and probably hit the opposite wall at high(ish, enough to be deadly) speed.

Lucky.

BULL.
SHIT.

There's nothing the guard did that the driver couldn't - unless the guard was magically in all the carriages at once.

In fairness to the union, the article does talk about shepherding the passengers to safety and more hi-vis might help in the circumstances.

I'd heard about the incident but didn't realise the collapse happened whilst the line was in use. Still, anything that gets rid of Pacers can't be an entirely bad thing.

At the weekend, Brexit pulled a table on to her head, Trump split a lip after falli g on to a stone step as her tights are like a quiet cat on that floor, and MrsA fell down a flight of stairs. I, accidentally, found myself in a gun shop.

Staffordshire is dangerous.

Nay: Our little boy is teething. Eight back teeth all springing painfully forth at once. He's ok with it, mostly, because he is resilient like his Mama, but it is affecting his poor tummy. Careful not to be seen drooling, it has all gone tummy-wards. Nappy changes can be surprising, and sudden, and fraught.

This was never more true than on Saturday, when we emergency pulled over into a garden centre carpark to perform a nappy removal manoeuvre on the poosplosion in the back. Crouched over the back seat somehow (goodness knows how) we had to strip him naked and 80 wet wipes later he didn't have *quite* so much poo on him. But man, it was everywhere. So much so that he went home wearing only Russell's tshirt as a giant dress, and Russell had to drive home with no top on.

But yay: new shiny toofs?

I'm mostly writing this for Krazywookie to absorb for his future with Ewok (that's a thing, right? The littler furry things?) Anyway, learn from us. Don't make our mistakes.

Aww poor wee bugger. :luv: Izzy used to get hers in batches and had the same poopsplosion-reaction.

Can't remember if I've mentioned before but I used to use the big ikea facecloth/flannels as wipes because the texture catches more runny poop. Might help with the 80 wipes thing :DD

My wife has a right go a me today :(

She wanted to get tickets to see Eddie Vedder and Glen Hansard in Dublin. They sold out quickly.

So I bought her 2 online at several times face value plus booking fee.

She went metal when I told her the cost, I agree total waste of money for me, but she loves the music of these 2 ,Glen Hansard grew up where she did and whilst she doesn't know him, she went to the same parties before he was successful. So I thought I was doing a nice (and expensive) thing.

I just figured she really likes them so screw the cost, we will be tied up with a newborn most of the year so no holidays abroad to pay for this year.

Thankfully after her sister told her she is lucky her husband would do this, I got a kiss and a thank you when I got home :)

I have the same problem with Steps tickets... I'm not paying the resellers fee.

Never mind, Hanson are doing a tour which will be announced on Monday so we'll go and see them instead.

Yeah. I'm hoping Hansard will play Glastonbury as I'm not paying the extortionate prices.

Also, you're the reason nobody can get tickets for things any more :D

Oh shit, my wife tricked me with the same tour!

She was like "Do you want to go and see the Vengaboys?"
And I was like "Fuck yeah!"
And then she bought the tickets and told me they were supporting Steps.

Bitch.

All the best people already saw the Vengaboys in a smaller venue.

I spent last night modding a Gameboy Advance. While I enjoyed doing it (even soldering the tiny wires) the results are a little disappointing. The screen is quite washed out compared with how it should look. After reading up on it, I may have to solder another wire in to help it along but I still don't think it will look as good as the Gameboy advance with the backlit screen.

As part of the new bathroom work we have had an electrician come in to move some lights and things around.

He also had to do some tests on the breaker box in the garage, it took him all of 10 minutes before he told me it was out of date, and dangerous.

He said cables to the mains meter were the wrong type and length, breakers were not labelled correctly (so you had no idea what you were turning off) and there were 20amp cables for sockets into 32amp breakers which means if you plug a 30amp device in then the cables could melt and or catch fire.

Also no earth to speak off, so £500 later all safe and fixed, he also put some spot lights on a sensor across the front of my house which is a great improvement.
