Chilterns in the rain

I spent about two hours cycling in the pouring rain. My trousers were saturated, my shoes and socks were flooded… So why didn’t I feel miserable? In fact, why was I happy? Maybe it’s because I was riding carefree around the Chilterns, something I love to do, something I don’t do often enough.

The swine flu the same way the horse flies

People are getting paranoid about swine flu. And the media are milking it for all it’s worth! To me it’s no different to any other strain of influenza. And the ways to prevent the spread of swine flu are more or less the same with ordinary flu. Just keep your germs to yourself and keep away from other people’s germs.
