I mentioned the road works near my office on the UK thread in All Saints so I am calling these to Hell.

Who decided to perform extensive road works on three roundabout about a mile apart especially when most of those who use one of the said roundabouts will use at least one other?

Until some of the worst effects were mitigated, by turning traffic lights OFF at two of the roundabouts, It took over two hours to get through all three and over an hour to get through two.

I wouldn't mind if it was likely to make any bloody difference, but attempts have been made in the past and it never did, so I doubt it will do now, because the fundamental problems remain:

a) crap public transport
b) an absence of a road relieving the M4 around Newport (that was first planned in around 1980)and specifically:
c) all the traffic to the western side of Newport that is not travelling on the motorway has to use the same damned roundabout slap bang outside my office.

A pox on a certain hospital in mid-New York State. It boasts about how modern and beautiful and well-equipped it is, but don't go there. When my wife's mother had a relatively minor surgical procedure recently, nobody noticed that the IV had somehow slipped out of a vein, so she got no anaesthetic the whole time and her arm was swollen with fluid. Somehow, they managed to imply that it was her fault. They can't apologise or that would be an admission of liability and an opening for a lawsuit (which she would never do). Barbarians, particularly Dr Effing D........ But blessings upon a gentle and lovely nurse who with much care and kindness took care of things afterwards.

Re roads in general, and perhaps my last over-frothy crazed cappuccino of rage in this soon to be sold, dry docked, its masts cut off, and turned into a gabage scow of a ship. [Tear]

My rant:
Our cities are wastelands of morbidly obese babies whom their diabetic parents poison with corn syrup and religion while themselves taking opiates and driving climate-demolishing pleasure tanks. So here's a cup of sewer water raised to getting places faster with a minimum of inconvenience. Well maybe climate change will turn the streets into ocean and we'll all be sailors.

A last chance to TICTH! So here goes:

TICTH people who moan and groan about everything, who pour cold water on everyone's ideas, who take what you say the wrong way imagining you've said things you didn't, who talk over you, who think they know what you're going to say, who are nasty behind your back and nice to your face, who imagine that you are like them, who bring their own agenda to the table and don't engage with anything else, and who don't listen.

I've probably just condemned myself too.

TICTH all that is making the world bad right now. May evil ebb away. May all hurts and harms be healed. May everyone be, do, and feel just a bit better.

Powdery snow that doesn't stick together properly for snowman construction; and/or my lack of snowman experience to build/ supervise building with said snow. (Dafling major's school closed today.)
