If I was a member of the local cops, this would be my mall transport for those times when the trike is out of service or unavailable.
This is a Velocette LE, also known as a ‘Noddy Bike’. Used by many British police forces for regular patrols. The two-way radio on the back was an aftermarket accessory, though it would be replaced with a more modern one and phone-type handset as shown if I used it.

Might as well get this underway.
I’ve just about finished rebuilding my PC and it runs great.
Also, some idjit in the mall made fun of me in the library to her clown-faced mates, who were giggling over the One Direction autobiography they found sprawled on an empty couch in the reading area.
Also, I’m sorely tempted to buy one of those bloody big trackball things that the libraries have although not in those colours that look like they’d be sold by Sesame Street if Grover opened a computer shop. Would be easy to use.

All I’ve seen in music shops this past week is Dannii Minogue’s new album. Every single music rack, it takes front and centre position begging to be picked up by overenthusiastic teens, purchased and then played to extinction in an ancient hi-fi stereo that sounds like a Rumble siren when you crank the volume up. Not interested. If I go to a music store, I want GOOD music, like Flatt and Scruggs, not having to hear the latest pop single by one of Australia’s best exports belted over the PA system every five minutes like it’s the best thing since sliced bread.
Same with her sister. Every time either of them release a new album/single, it’s on the ‘Latest and Greatest’ CD racks and within two days the entire stock is sold out.
If talentlessness was a crime, Dannii would be on the top ten most wanted list.
There are some decent characters on CB
CB ain’t all bad. It ain’t all fat men obsessing over their purported penis sizes, trash talkers that sound like they swallowed a bag of gravel (or ten), people with such squeaky high pitched voices you’d think they’d be more suited to Xbox Live… there are some decent people there who enjoy a joke, a laugh and a bit of a chinwag. You’ve just got to know where to find them.
Okay so I went out to dinner tonight with a group of my friends. Now most of these friends have special needs. They’re great. They are THE BEST kids. Anyway, as the night was winding to an end, it turns out we had to take someone home. No biggie. But as we were leaving the restaurant, these two 8…
You oughta go to dinner with R Lee Ermey sometime - if any bullies scared those special needs kids he’d deal with them fast.
