Good Morning from Reddish Vale!

Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

Your pictures of Reddish Vale are way better than what I've seen on Google maps – perhaps you should upload them there.

That's probably because I'm the only loony with the dedication to show up there at dawn every day, waiting for shots like this. :)

And another thing....

I can't perform my usual role there as the visitor centre is closed until further notice.

So... I'm spending my time picking up all the shite left by the great unwashed who'd never usually visit.

It really, seriously pisses me off. How difficult is it to put a beer can in one of the numerous bins provided? Or take your kids' full nappies home with you?

There's shite everywhere, every day. :(

Cyling Warrior.
So, for the second time in a week, I encountered a bunch of fat Pakistani warriors, parked illegally on double yellow lines on a clearly marked cycle lane. There's no way off the road because of barriers, so I had to swerve around the corner, nearly hit an innocent pedestrian and fell off my bike.
I went nuts and kicked the fuck out of the inconsiderate parker's car.
He and his four fat friends exited the kebab shop and threatened to kick my head in...
"Come on then, you obese fuckers." Said I "Come and fucking try it! I'll take all five of you on and win!"

"We have you on camera." Said one of them.

"Fucking fantastic" said I, "call the police and see what they think of your mate's life-endangering parking."

And off they fucked. :)

Halfords bumps up cycle supplies as 'unprecedented demand' lifts profit

The cycling to car parts retailer has benefited from staycation trends as well as motorists shunning public transport.

Halfords said it has been ramping up supplies of bicycles as "unprecedented demand" extends into the autumn even after the end of the peak summer season.

The retailer, which also sells and fits car parts, was boosted by a surge in demand as many Britons stayed in the UK during the holiday period, with the pandemic restricting foreign travel.

But it said it had continued its strong growth into September - and is now recruiting for hundreds of motoring technician roles both at its stores and auto centres.

A bit of the old paki bashing. In the UK you might be charged with a hate crime. Worse since you demeaned their cultural blockage of rights of way.

All told, I think you are in trouble. And being married to a woman of color simply underscores your colonialist mindset. If adopting a black kid makes our potential supreme court justice a racist, I shudder to think that they would make of you.

It is off to the reeducation camp for you old son.
