From sports cars to buses!
Stevenage Old Town hosts a farmers market once a month and this old bus is available to carry people from the bus station to the market. It's a free trip for the passengers. I assume that the old boys who run the bus are subsidised by the council.

I wonder if they still allow smoking upstairs?
 
It's that time of year here where in the late afternoon/early evening sometimes spectacular cloud formations rise over the hills to the west, threatening storms. Then the wind off the Gulf of Thailand gets stronger and blows the weather back to Burma.

Not sure where you get that from, as the Gloucestershire Aircraft Company was formed in 1917 & changed its name to Gloster in 1926.
The company was started by Hugh Burroughes & H H Martyn & Co. ( the latter being architectural finishers & decorators in Cheltenham).
Gloster was bought by Hawker in 1934.

I didn't know Vietnam had a US Marine corp.

Stand away there you pedantic cunt you. Technically the sentence ( and I was thinking about spelling that with an 's' instead of a 'c' just to get your goat, but I'm too kindhearted to stop it munching on your nether regions.) is grammatically and meaningwise correct. You did, for all your glory, fail to spot that I in fact wrote Vietman...my error. C'mon hit me, I'll take it ;)
