I was looking at an old script of mine last week. It had extensive comments. It turned out that many of them hadn't been updated when the code was. Past me was a bastard

Also relating to Trump’s visit and helicopters, I’m not sure if this has made the national news

I think they must have been rehearsing the route to Chequers in the last few days. I think 3 Ospreys were involved, plus UK police choppers

Were they using Ospreys? I live a few miles from Chequers and they came over a few days ago

Have they said how far the stuff will be coming from? It doesn't make sense to send it too far (if it costs more than the landfill tax why would you bother?) I imagine most will come up the M1 from London

I understand. I also accept that I don't live near either site, but I am convinced that it's better than dumping everything and it makes sense to put them near where the rubbish is created rather than transport it even further

While I'm no expert, I do think it's important to recognise that these are very sophisticated systems, not just a big bonfire

They emit very little. When I visited, the group all had a good sniff around the site and could smell nothing. Greatmoor publish their figures on the site I linked previously. We were told that if we'd arrived in an older diesel vehicle we were environmentally worse than the site

To be clear, I know nothing about this specific site (other than where it is), I was just impressed by the emissions controls I saw. Are the WHO specifically talking about this type of incinerator?

I don't want to jump into the firing line here, but I have visited the Bucks EfW site () and it's quite impressive. It has the advantage of sitting next to the landfill site, but it does deal effectively with a lot of waste

Not having Dropbox is a pain. I also haven't been able to connect to Todoist, has that worked for you?

Earlier in the week we had a really delayed journey into London. Today we arrived at the station to find a delayed earlier train that’s going non-stop to Euston!

Having been given a Sodastream for my birthday, I can now make water with my preferred level of fizz. The resulting burps register at the low end of the Richter scale

In this context, you could have used 'rubles, or 'rubes'

A while ago my wife and I were trying to recall the name of a particular Page 3 girl. After much pondering my wife suddenly said "I know, it's Lucinda Lardy!"
