miniature railways, tube tomfoolery and emerging bands...

All aboard!Just a quick entry to summarise the day before I collapse into bed! We met up with Cath, Martin, Luke and our mother for a trip to the Eastbourne Miniature Steam Railway - a favourite haunt of Luke's when they're down south - and, with gentle sunshine all day, we had a wonderful time. There are photos of our trip in the gallery.

66,666 miles!As we drove home, our beloved Astra - we know him/her (there is debate... well, OK, out-and-out arguments, between the children as to the gender!) as "Little White" - passed its 66,666th mile on the road. Nothing of any disastrous consequence happened, thank heavens; in fact, it was quite a pleasant, uneventful drive home!

On other matters, I was thinking of my favourite pointless fact (that St. John's Wood is the only tube station that shares none of its letters with the word Mackerel), when I discovered an almost-as-pointless website that one can play a similar game with - users.ox.ac.uk/~univ1532/tube.

Finally, I'd like to make a pop music prediction - based on podcast play alone (including a podcast of their own, where they seem like very approachable and down-to-earth guys), I think The Shakes' debut single 'Liberty Jones' will have a substantial chart success - by internet airplay rather than 'big label' publicity (in the same way that the Arctic Monkeys didn't). It's a wonderfully catchy tune, and I really hope they make a success of it.

Have a good Sunday!
