Storm Bird

Storm Gull

Storm Gull

On our last full day in the US, we stood on the edge of the stormy Pacific and watched yet another storm system roll on to shore. The winds whipped up the waves, and torqued the gulls around the sky.

After all these years...

...they actually seem to have started work on Crossrail...

It's started!

...at least according to this hoarding in Soho Square.

I suspect its the start of surveying the ground for the Tottenham Court Road station extension

Today's Factoid

From the BBC:
The equivalent of the UK population - 57 million - travelled in the Channel Tunnel from 1994 to 2000.
That's an impressive number you can now use in all your dinner party conversations. Guaranteed to give you something or other, even if it's just a vague sense of smugness.

The only problem here is that I'm now stuck with the mental image of either Peter or Jon Snow doing something with little plastic figurines to illustrate the factoid.
