    If you are that close behind me I will not be able to see you... With who I'm working for at the moment, it is unlikely I'll be going to Europe, although I have taken some loads to exporters. I do get to stop in some pritty places some times.

    Slight rant After a month of driving artics (HGV, LEV, Semi trucks) in the UK, my thoughts are, White vans drivers are dangerous and suicidal, but some car drivers are even worse. I today I had a van overtake me on a motorway so close I could not see his lights, if he even touched his brakes...

    I passed my C+E test, I'm now able to drive Artics on the road now. An hour of having some one watch you drive is bad, when that person can fail you for one marginal decision is stressful. Time to go looking for a decent job now.

    Nothing quite like an 8 hour work day turning in to an 11 hour day because an another driver did not do their job. I had an irate store manager spent far to long complaining to me when I was sent to fix it.

    In continuation of me getting a HGV Licence 4 days ago, I had a Job offer the next day and yesterday had a baptism of fire. I'm entirely new to the role and all I get is 30min induction and handed the keys to a fully loaded 18ton lorry and some paperwork, then told "off you go". 8 hours later...

    News COVID-19 pandemic

    From what I overheard from a conference call that my landlady (she is involved with Long Covid research ) was on, the mutation that was identified in the South East of England only increases the virus's ability to infect others, and has had no notable change in other effects. As of yesterday...

    Attempted piracy is not going to help them much with the asylum applications. Also nice to see the SBS get some publicity.

    This frame seems to be the place then. https://ncap.org.uk/frame/6-1-1-36-11 Take note of the basin and the ship in the middle of the frame described as "German Cruiser" in the archive. That ship would be 200-400m from the bomb. I was only going off the video plus google earth and then looking...

    The bomb was located 500-1500m from a dock that ships could have been in use in1945. A quick browse on https://ncap.org.uk/ (RAF ww2 Aerial photo archive) shows some possible ships transiting the canal. https://ncap.org.uk/frame/6-1-1-36-16 shows the area on 14 April 1945.

    I wonder what the current tenants on Ascension Island think of the proposal. Also it is going to cost a fortune maintaining a facility like that 1200km from the nearest land (and that is another mid-Atlantic Island).
