The other day when I saw a car drive straight through the red light on a pedestrian crossing, I had a brain wave!
Why not put speed camera’s on every traffic light, and pedestrian controlled light’s!?
My reasoning is thus:
- They will prevent more accidents occurring from drivers jumping red lights.
- They well cause less accidents from drivers suddenly slowing down when they spot a speed camera.
- They might probably generate more money!
Of course, with the numbers needed to cover every traffic light the money generated would be less per camera than it currently is.
Yes, this is the crazy kind of thoughts that run through my head!
My car went in for its MOT in Monday, and failed!
It failed on two things:
- The offside constant velocity joint gaiter is split
- And the nearside MacPherson strut has excessive movement
There was also an advisory saying that the offside MacPherson strut has slight movement.
Luckily she passed the emissions!
I’ve now got 10 days to get the faults fixed and take the car back in for a free retest.

We managed to get to the cinema in time at 20:25, but the queues were long and we thought we would miss the beginning!
Luckily when we got the front of the queue the film hadn’t started, even though it was 20 minutes after the advertised start time!
Most of the people there was to see Mamma Mia, the previous viewing sold out, so some of them had come back. When we got to the front one of the staff came out and said that that viewing of Mamma Mia was now sold out!
Back to Kung Fu Panda…
You know those old Kung Fu films? With those seemingly impossible moves?
Yeah? Well this film has loads of them although animated though!
The story is about a lazy panda, named Po, that accidentally becomes the chosen “Dragon Warrior”. Despite having no real life experience of Kung Fu, Master Shifu must find a way to train Po and make him a Kung Fu Master
He must then fight Tai Lung, a snow leopard.
I’ve read reviews about Kung Fu Panda, saying that with the big names doing the voices in the film, we don’t get to see (hear?) them often. For example, Jackie Chan is the voice of Monkey, but I don’t remember ever hearing Monkey speak!
It’s a funny film, great for kids, but also for the adults.
I’m going to the cinema tonight to watch Kung Fu Panda with my girlfriend
We’ll be using the free cinema tickets I got from eating a load of chocolates!
The only thing is, it’s only valid at Cineworld Cinemas
And the only one in Bristol is in Hengrove, the other side of the city!
Still, it should only take us about 20 minutes to get there.
If we don’t get lost!!!
Some breaking news!

It seems to only be the pavilion part that has been destroyed
