Becoming a redneck: I was standing in the midday sun for a bit too long on Tuesday at the rally. Foolishly I didn’t have a hat, and didn’t put sun screen on. The next morning, for the first time in years, I could feel I’d got sunburnt. Not really badly, but enough to cause some pain on my neck and arms when I got in the shower. I’ll consider myself warned.
Maybe this is why I looked so damn cranky in this photo Rob took:
Geek begats geek: Eldest son is now able to solve a Rubik’s cube without help in less than two minutes. (Who did that song about the Cube in the 80s? Was it Mike Brady or someone? Someone should find the details and add it to Wikipedia.)
Top Gear: For someone like me who favours sustainable transport, is watching Top Gear for the humour a bit like reading Playboy for the articles?
Salty: I’ve always thought Red Rooster tasted very salty. This appears to confirm it: It found one Red Rooster chicken and chips meal contained a “shocking” 2800mg of sodium. (It notes the daily dietary target is 1600mg.)
