When visiting Arizona a couple of weeks ago, I noticed that there were a lot of roundabouts (traffic circles), which isn't very common over here in the US. Americans just don't do roundabouts and they don't enjoy negotiating them when in the UK. Anyway, it brought back memories of learning to drive in Swindon, when I was a youngster based at RAF Lyneham. We got to take our driving lessons around this beauty:

Had a bit of a misunderstanding in Publix the other day. The customer in front of me on this particular day was being rather grumpy and rude. After they left, I told the checkout lady "She really was getting the hump, wasn't she?" Judging by the poor lady's face, I really should be more careful about using British slang phrases in public. Red faces all round!
So that's it for this week folks, I'm off to have a nice cup of tea and a slice of toast. The perfect start to any day, even though it is made with second rate American bread ;)
