Happy Birthday Temple Meads!

Tuesday had come down through Dundrum and Foster Avenue, brine-fresh from sea-travel, a corn-yellow sun-drench that called forth the bees at an incustomary hour to their bumbling.

Carefully avoid showing the old shed as a car park.  Some of our timetable meetings have taken part in that old boardroom - must chase up to see if those groups are meeting in some way in the near future.

I really SHOULD have checked my email more carefully as I swapped to a new laptop ... no need to chase up because I have the invite (thanks to the members who nudged me in the right direction).     Separate thread starting in Transport Scholars ... members who have not joined that more technical board (i.e. if th elk does not work for you) ... please message me or "like" this post and I will add you in.
