"Your time is limited so don't waste it living someone else's life.
Don't be trapped by Dogma which is living with the results of other people's thinking.
Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your inner voice.
And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition, they somehow already know what you truly want to become."

Chelsea Tractors Ahoy

Woke up today to thick, thick snow. I hate days like this because all the f*cking Chelsea Tractor owners climb smugly into their RAV4s and Land Cruisers, ready to drive fat Timmy 30 yards to school, thinking "I'm in a 4x4 I'm not going to get stuck in the snow! Look at meeeee!"

Well correct my dear, if you lived on a farm in the middle of nowhere (and rightly needed to own a 4x4) you'd doubtless be OK. BUT YOU LIVE IN SUBURBIA, and no amount of dual gearboxes or 4WD on your stupid gas-guzzling dangerous status-symbol is going to prevent you from queueing for hours in the snow-snarled traffic, along with the other "normal" cars and Chelsea Tractor owners . With your higher centre of gravity you are actually more likely to be skidding off the roads, ploughing into other motorists, and causing all the pile-ups in weather like this.

I'll give you a wave as I cycle by you in the queue.....
