Friday was a good day.

Well I still have a cold and can't stop sneezing.
Today was OK apart from that.
The office party was kicking off as I left work. I decided not to attend due to lack of cash.

Tomorrow I have to try and buy 6 months road tax for my little car. I wish I could get a reduction on account of the fact that I don't drive more than 100 miles a year. Most of the time I am on the bicycle, bouncing in and out of numerous moon crater pot-holes on British roads.

Note to the guys that lay tarmac road surfaces........please apply it to the whole width of the road!

Don't ever give up searching for the fun in life.

Ahh the public sector. BTW what is a road tax...sounds like something people here point to when villifing socialism.

Road tax......hmmm it is basically a tax that pays for the upkeep of the road network. Every motor vehicle has to have a tax disk. Only the eco friendly electrical vehicles get free ones. the rest of us have to pay 6 monthly or yearly. The 6 month tax is £60.50 for a Nissan Micra with a 998cc engine. The bigger the car the more the owner pays so it's almost fair.
However the roads are not good and most of us suspect the money is being spent elsewhere in war or paying for yet more speed cameras.

Ahh so it's no different than US car registration. Whew, heaven knows the right here doesn't need any more fodder.
