So, who wants to help ... to cower in the cellar?

It’s a big problem here too, walkers getting squished by cyclists and cyclists getting killed by cars.

We have shared pathways with a yellow line down them, expecting everyone to keep right. As a walker, I don’t like cyclists creeping up behind me, so I walk on the wrong side as long as there’s room to step off the path onto grass when an oncoming cycle appears. Or even a walker or jogger keeping to the right, since I am the one ‘in the wrong’. It keeps me safe and doesn’t bother anyone as I always give way.

If there’s no room on the left to step aside (other than jumping in the canal) then I go with the traffic. But it’s blooming alarming as the cyclists go fast. I don’t blame them unless they behave like louts, after all, they’re keeping cars off the roads, but cyclists and pedestrians don’t mix well but nor do cyclists and motorists.

Time for a Venn diagram, Janie! How I long for yellow lines, but the routes we usually take are minimally maintained. Don’t want to diminish the enjoyment of others, but if my walking is spoiled by people on faster modes of transport I can become grumpy. Anyhoo - I should probably sort out the dinner.

I believe the photo was posted by one of the ravenkeepers.

Well, that makes sense - a welcome change, these days.
Good nights, Cellarites,

Toast (me own bread) and marmalade available. It is the Ma’s chunky Seville marmalade and it is absolutely delicious.


#5316

Ooh.

(Fishly Marmalade is also rather splendid.)


#5317

But not chunky.

Really interesting economic analysis of Uber. Recommended.

It’s very interesting, Hedgers. Uber is so wrong on so many levels.

POM’s new boots…

And after visiting we went to the tearoom at the animal shelter for lunch and I had another crab sandwich (sorry Gus). With chips. I reckon they do the best chips ever.

The more crabs you eat, the fewer are left to leap down the Gusly froat.

Fine boots!
