Airport expansions and other stuff.

I'm two thirds of the way through my working week - it's been quite a good-humoured couple of days, and although I'm still quite sleepy in the morning, we all have the occasional laugh during the day. I've always said that it's not what you do for a living, it's who you work with, and there has been a good selection of engineers on shift just lately.

Closer to home (literally), the Luton Airport expansion has been announced. Living, as we do, in the shadow of the steep hill on which the airport sits, it would be nigh-on impossible for it to encroach any distance towards us, although the options for link expansions might cause the road near our house to be widened to a dual carriageway. Apart from the constant flow of construction traffic, I believe that will be the limit of the effect on our immediate environment. The big documents are on the London Luton Airport website.

On the web, it would appear that Google has done it again... video.google.com: a free video hosting service. There's a limited amount on there, but on occasion there are some good finds - daft lipsyncing, for example. Yup, they're all at it. (There's more here, should you be so inclined).

Radio recommendations...

  • The Problem With Adam Bloom - Wednesday evenings at 6.30pm on Radio 4. There seems to be a fair collection of 'lecture' style programmes on these days (Miles Jupp's Real World being another example; the fourth and final episode is tomorrow night at 11pm on Radio 4).
  • New to BBC7 is Ectoplasm - a comedy from five years ago, which I'd never heard of until now. And it's got Sophie Aldred in it. Hooray!

Squirrel!Enough (apart from my favourite cameraphone photo - see right) from me... time for some linkage.
