Last year, I posted that Warwickshire Council were asking for names for their new gritters. I am rather disappointed to see my suggestion of ‘Gary Gritter’ hasn’t been accepted but anyway, here are the results....


The names selected for Warwickshire’s new gritters are:
~ Usain Salt
~ Professor Chris Gritty
~ Gritta Thunberg
~ Snowbi-Gone Kenobi
~ The Mighty Thaw
~ Charlie Boy
~ Grey13 Hero

There’s an honourable mention for ‘Slip-Not’.

I love the black and white photo, it has a pleasingly 50s/60s vibe to the building.

I often find myself drawn to black and white photographs (as much as I like vibrant colour ones) because there's something really nice about the light and shadow on them.
I always find B/W photos more atmospheric and appealing

Michael Jackson arrested in Morecambe.

Apparently wrestled to the floor by 8 police officers for breaking Covid rules. Seems a bit OTT to me:

He was arrested as an imposter because the real Michael Jackson would obviously have been wearing a mask. The copper at 2:35 onwards looks a bit of a slob standing there with his hands in his pockets.

Evening falls on my first hangover of the year. Here's dinner from last night and my view from the prime spot on what I dub my friend's 'executive armchair'.
