Big blazeI feel cheated. I had a great dinner out with the team the evening before, got the 23:53 train back from London Bridge with Fish' and after a somewhat slow walk back to the house had a drink of water, set my alarm for 6.45a.m. and collapsed in bed slightly the worse for wear at 1.40 a.m.

At 6 o'clock something woke me, not sure what, I got up, kinda muddled mind, looked out the front window through the blinds saw nothing, and went back to bed for another 45-mins snooze before going cycling. My son woke me up at 9.40 a.m. to tell me he was going to work.

Last night at the Tri-Force club swim session and all over the weekend I had to listen to people recount their experience with the big explosion over at the oil depot at Hemel Hempstead. Given we are just over 5-miles from the terminal, as measured with Google Earth, I should have been part of the experience. Alas, four glasses of red wine, a couple of Vodka and cokes and no damage to the house and I missed it all :-(

Still, I can remember where I was when I learned Lennon had been shot, when Armstrong stepped on the Moon, when Di said "I do" to Charles and I was there when Gorbachev was under house arrest in 1991 and when Hurst scored his third and Wolstenholme said "They think its all over..."

Hi Mark,

You've not put your one's from the Ride out to Buncefield on Sunday yet though? I've got a fairly decent one of the remains of one of the buildings with a tank that didn't explode in the background if your interested?

Re: Great Photo
Paul, the pictures I took on the ride didn't come out too well, I think my hands were so cold Suunday morning that I must have pressed the low res button...

I've posted the images Here and Here.
