Police enforce speeding
So says one of the signs on Canberra's roads today. Looks like we will have to be speedy even when we don't want to.

The sign may have succeeded another one spotted a few days ago which gave rise to much mirth:
Police enforce speed's

Many non-Canberrans are probably unaware of the level of illiteracy here in Canberra. But if the truth be known, we are something of a back-water, and these signs are fairly typical.

What am I doing, for heaven's sake??

This example of a very strange running style is me tiptoing away at the start of Sunday's race, trying not to further damage my strained foot! Ken disappeared ahead soon after.

  2. Ironically I was severely injured by a swooping magpie yesterday. Well, severe enough to draw blood through my cap.

  5. I don't think I was running as well as girls can. Or was your comment addressed to the runner in front of me?
