Ok. Here's a good one. I am currently staying at our Carlisle campus to help with a Christian stewardship conference we are hosting here. (Great venue, by the way) It was 31C according to the BBC weather website. In the afternoon, we went on an outing to Lanercost Abbey, near Hadrians Wall. On the way in the middle of nowhere on a narrow road, we met a gritting lorry. I kid you not, it even had its orange lights flashing. Now that's what I call being prepared.
On a different tack, Gordon Brown has named his new son James. Presumably he feels good about it. (sorry- couldn't resist that one)
