I hope that this is not repetition.   Did I ever mention that my old dentist in Bournville was Mr Payne?

Today I came across a writer of crime fiction by the name of "Dana Stabenow".  Not sure whether this is nominative determinism or the opposite.  Of it.

One half of BT Sport's godawful colemantary team for Moto GP is Julian Ryder.

And then there'es Team Dimension Data's directeur sportif Doug Ryder.

There's a wood a few miles south of Charlbury in Oxfordshire called Notoaks Wood. I don't know what sort of trees are actually there.
I do not ride a great big Mercian, gangster tanwalls, fixed cog in the back.

They have relocated to Harrow now, without renaming the business!
They were rather closer to here when I was moving in and Giraffe was doing multiple odd jobs.

Not really appropriate, really quite unappropriate, but the other day I saw a lorry belonging to the "Cleveland Cable Company".

Sadly it wasn't a steam lorry.
