Due to the current situation, Her Majesties' Government has decided today will be cancelled.  Please continue as if it were only yesterday until it becomes tomorrow or the situation is further reviewed.
Sic transit and all that..

Can we please have some standards around here?

April 1st! Not "April 1."

Monarchs are plural e.g. "We are not amused".

Oh, and please form an orderly queue, keeping 2 metres apart. Thank you. Have you washed your hands?

Is it okay for me to take a shower now? Or do I have to keep just washing my hands?

The lightweight and high tech will appeal to the audax market but I think it's far too fashion-forward to really catch on except among those reckless types who risk disc brakes, tubeless tyres and aluminium frames.

We're celebrating a friend's birthday, which happens to fall on March 32nd, here...
Happy birthdays to one and all!
