Tryouts for the White House Basketball Team start in January ’09

Congratulations to Barack Obama, President Elect, on becoming the first African American to hold the highest office. Respect to John McCain for his closing speech in which he recognised the significance of 2008 US Election result and the achievements of his opponent with both humility and respect.

The thing to remember now America –

Once you’ve had Barack, there’s no going back Wink

Voices in the sky,
burning bushes etc; from The Department for Stating The Obvious, it would seem
that the Big Mo was tripping his nuts off…
 
"High on Mount Sinai, Moses
was on
psychedelic drugs when he heard God deliver the Ten Commandments, an Israeli researcher
claimed in a study published this week. "
 
 


Background Information

West of England Partnership, composed
of local councillors, propose to install the first of four bus rapid
transit routes along the Emersons Green to Bristol city centre section
of the famous and hugely popular Sustrans Railway Path.

This bus route
will take most of the width of the already narrow path; leaving only a
3 metre strip for cycles, walkers, dogs, children and disabled buggies
to share. This green corridor is likely to become an ugly, concrete,
fenced in busway devoid of vegetation and wildlife. In addition to
cycling, this greenway is used for walking to school, shops and
shortcuts: many crossing paths will be lost and communities severed.

Evidence this £49 million scheme will reduce congestion is lacking.

‘We,
the undersigned, petition Bristol City Council to reject plans to
install a rapid transit bus route along any section of the Bristol to
Bath Railway Path "Greenway" and wildlife corridor. The Bristol to Bath
Railway Path is the most popular route in the UK on the National Cycle
Network with 2.4 million sustainable journeys in the last year.’
