I’m not a doctor, but are CT scans the best way to treat a kid with the chicken pox? I’m not so sure about that! Someone at Gifville General Hospital’s paediatrics department obviously fudged their medical exams!!
I have just been reading this fascinating article on Tube stations here in London, then and now. Several stations are mentioned, with special slider galleries showing the station’s entrance in the past and how they look now, side-by-side. The article by TimeOut can be seen here. For those of you curious about which is my nearest Tube station, it would be Plaistow, with Canning Town being second closest.
Just had some good news this evening. The tube train strikes called by the unions for most of this week have been postponed, although new potential strike action has been called for early September. Nevertheless I am very relieved. Happy, happy, joy, joy!!
I managed to plan THREE alternative routes with the help of the TfL Journey Planner to get into work, but for now I can breathe easy, unlike the poor commuters in the District Line train above.
Today is the second all-line Tube strike by the London Underground unions in the past two months. It was enacted due to pay and work hours disputes between the unions and TfL over London Mayor Boris Johnson’s much vaunted plan to make the Tube a 24-hour operation this September.
This punny GIF is dedicated to both the striking staff of LU and the commuters who are walking, cabbing, taking the bus, the river boat, or the penny-farthing to work/college today.
Not me though. I chickened out and booked a day off. Packed buses at Liverpool Street station…naah, I don’t think so.
