Some days better than others

We started with a great meeting, even though attendance was down. David P told a story from his childhood, while the table topics had a James Bond theme. The working day was a marked contrast to this, though as the day continued, things brightened.

Stormy weather

With warnings of gusts to 140. Yesterday was $2 Thursday. Travel anywhere by train all day and that's all it costs. The effect is that the network gets clogged by mothers and toddlers just clocking up miles. Thomas the Tank Engine has a lot to answer for, even he the network on Sodor does have so many accidents that it would be placed in statutory management if it were real. This abominable record hasn't harmed its popularity, however. Meanwhile, it seems fairly calm here, at the moment. Wait and see.
