Sublime Grime
"ALSO AVAILABLE IN BLUE" on back of blue transit. A quaint re-working of the white theme, unfortunately, this was only visible as the sun caught the van and a particular angle. West bound M20 lower tributaries

Bad Office Humour Example
On hearing that office secretary had moved desks...."Why is it called a stationary cupboard if it keeps moving around".
On being explained on the concept of "Blogging" and using the "Where's Raed" as an example, same individual quoted as saying "He could've made a bomb out that".

Campachino 18p; Inserted 20p; 16p returned; Net profit 14p.
Life in the Slow Lane
Fog causing a congested, steady drive.
Noticed smart sporty Lotus type thing on M25 (red with White Trans-am Stripes), saw the same car 20 miles later crunched on the Crawley Way Roundabout... distressing, especially since it collided with an unscathed soul-less Volvo.
Duration: 40mins of WUTW and 5 Bob Dylan Songs (1 played twice).

Deutsche Grime
"AIR BAG TEST" and "BIG MACK IS BACK" scrawled across the back of a German mid-sized truck, obviously not written by the driver of said vehicle other it would have said "Luftbeutel Test" and "Grosses Mack ist zurück".
Life in Slow Lane
Well the little blighters are back to school so it was slow going getting onto the M20 (Time Delay: Two Tracks of an illegally copied Sheryl Crow CD), plus the usual crawl past Clackett Lane (Time Delay: Approx 3 Radio 2 Traffic Reports).

Sheryl Crow, illegally supplying the time delay measurement techniques today.
