More snow

My window at work, it’s a crap picture but I decide what goes up and what does not. Only a handful of people made it to work today. Off to Eastbridge later hopefully if the conditions allow. A41 is apparently shut between Berkhamsted and Hemel Hempstead, so fingers crossed.

No work at the dump

It is very cold this morning. The roads around the estate are very icy, but when you get to the main roads they are generally clear. It was a bit tricky slowing down to get off the A41. Picture shows there is no work going on at the Aston Clinton dump.

Wildlife photographer of the year

It’s at the Natural History Museum in Tring until 8 March. The photo’s are as good as ever. A sign of the times though could not find one taken using traditional film. The winner Steve Winter was using a Rebel XT not the most up to date camera goes to prove you don’t have to have the latest equipment.

The badger is part of the new revamped exhibition.

Coke to clean your loo

Coke Can Clean Your Toilet in a Pinch

from Lifehacker by Gina Trapani

When your toilet’s got rings and lime scale stains and you’ve got no cleaning gear on hand, grab a can of Coke out of the fridge.

According to wikiHow, you can pour Coke into a dirty toilet and the carbonic, citric, and phosphoric acids in it will break down stains, especially if you can leave it overnight to do the work. (Soda water will work too, without all the sugary residue.) Be warned though: this technique won’t save you from the dreaded brushing of the bowl itself.

It’s snowing

First day back at work and it is snowing. Car tracks running up the curb all over the estate.

One car on the bypass had mounted the central barrier and was balanced on top. Two people at work put thier cars in the ditch.

A great day to start back to work.
