The Health and Safety Brigade

Hi there,

Back in the 1970's when I had to drive around the country a lot on business there was always a lot of advice about what to do in snowy weather.

If you got stuck in your car you were advised to keep a window partially open or leave a door open, run the engine for 20 minutes at a time, check the exhaust was clear etc etc.

Despite a massive new health and safety industry they don't appear to say much about how to survive today. More concerned about people standing on step ladders.

In fact I had a laugh when a handyman I know who has had 40 years experience was sent on a course about how to handle screwdrivers!If he had survived 40 years he hardly needed training.

Anyrate enough of the moan. Keep smiling

Thought for today: Are you taking care of yourself?

Joke for today:- Did you hear about the sword swallower who went on a diet? He had pins and needles for months
