I do wonder sometimes how any cyclists are still alive. In the last week I've seen countless "ninja" cyclists (no lights and dark clothing at night) I've seen a few stealth cyclists (no lights at night) And quite a lot of twat cyclists, riding the wrong way down the middle of a one way street, riding through red traffic lights, riding up a very busy main road texting with both hands.
What the hell is wrong with these people? Don't they have any common sense, or is it removed by Halfords when they buy the bloody bike.
It's really time the police took some action, telling car driver the "think bike" isn't going to help, if you go around a corner and theres a cyclist going like hell on the wrong side of the road he's the one who needs to be thinking "car".
So come on cyclists, please start being safe, buy a bloody light, the pound shop sells them for... £1, even someone on a tight budget can afford that, or is your life only worth 50p?
While we were shooting the blood moon the other day a plane flew right across the moon in my lens, sadly I missed it having lost sight of the plane for a second.... so heres the picture of the plane crossing the blood moon.... Yes I know it's... errr slightly dodgy, but what the hell, I like it!

Well I watched all 6 episodes of the first series and I have to say it's funny, it remindes me a bit of Father Ted, although it's a totally different plot.
You have a small Scottish mountain rescue team called the mountain goats (after the pub they are based in) the comedy revolves around the group and the things they get up to.
Well worth a watch.
I've said it before, Peter Capaldi isn't cutting the mustard as the Doctor, and it seems I'm not the only one thinking this. Viewing figures now are nearly as low as when the series was canceled in 1989.
The problem is Peter just can't carry such a demanding lead role, his two "styles" of sneering or baffled just can't mach the range of emotions that the Doctor is expected to display, that and he's being acted off the set by everybody else.... Including the set.
I like many other really looked forward to watching my weekly "fix" of Doctor Who, sadly I'm now watching the repeats which are so much better, even the old black and white ones, the new series is just rubbish.... Worse than the last series was, and that's an achievement all on it's own.
And what has he done to his hair!

This morning at silly O'clock was a Blood Moon, as it's probably the last chance I'll have to see it we went and took some pics. For a change the sky stayed pretty clear and I got some good pics. All in all it took about 6 hours including the waiting and traveling.
Heres the composite.

I went for a quiet wander on the local beach this morning... Well that was the plan, it wasn't exactly quiet though.
You see the problem was loads of dog owners had thought the same thing. Now that shouldn't be a problem. Dogs are not allowed on the beach until the end of this month (a few days) so they shouldn't even be on the beach in the first place.
Trouble is not only are there hoards of dog on the beach, they are all off their leads. So as well as dogs barking and fighting we have owners shouting "comehere boy!" at the tops of their voices.
Seriously it was beyond a joke, a steel foundry would have been quieter, indeed a steel foundry having a male voice choir shouting battle would have been quieter. It was bloody ridiculous.
The other thing I noticed was as I tried to avoid the dog owners by walking around them they almost all walked towards me for no good reason, they would change course and just walk towards someone obviously trying to avoid them, weird or what?
Presumably they all wanted to make a new friend, I don't think it occured to any of them that I'd rather set the silly bastards on fire than be their new friend.
I've said it here before, if you see me out and about obviously minding my own business, leave me alone. Now this doesn't apply to my mates, but total strangers look out! You've been warned!. I do not want a new friend, especially one with the IQ of a fucking biro.
