Di you know that there are there are three extant species of zebra, and eight subspecies of zebra.

Welcome to London Cannon Street


Strangely, knowing my bad luck and the number of sad old train spotters back then, I actually have very few slides of trains and rolling stock.

Thank Goodness.

However, I do have this one. And from a little Googling, this is a unique one.  This particular ...thing ... is the only preserved British Rail Class 401. Also known as the 2-BIL,... as in  (2-car Bi-Lavatory stock, they were used until Zzzzzzzzzz........

Another Ordinary Street



It could be almost anywhere in the UK, but the fact is that it is somewhere.  Somewhere unique and which physically exists.

Unless I dreamt it.

In which case, you must be imagining a a view of Another Ordinary Street. 

Wouldn't it be strange if we imagine the same features in our imaginary street??

The Finger-Slicer


I realise that I've probably been conditioned by too many DailMail Elf'n'Safety scare stories, but this baby carriage looks rather dangerous to me.

What are the chances that some kid's going to lose a finger-tip in an unfortunate accident  while folding that guillotine buggy?

Mavis O'Flaherty


There so much I could speculate about Mavis, but I'll let you draw your own inferences from two basic facts.

  1. Phoenix Fire Station has a dormitory named after her.
  2. They never did find the spatula in question.
