Tonight I listened to the BBC.
Apart from the usual drivel about the worst snow fall for 19 years, Woopee f*ck. I've seen far worse in the past. They had a story about three younsters who unfortunately had decided to descend a slope on the upended roof of a derelict range rover. the sad ending was that they ended up sliding into a barbed wire fence, and one of them, being badly injured.
I must admit that it saddens me when these events happen, and that one was badly injured.
On the other hand, I am so glad that the devil may care attitude is still alive and well in the UK, and not even the ridiculous H & S brigade have managed, not wihout spending millions of our money, to stamp out the devil-may-care attitude to risk which made us such a great nation.
Without risk, would we have achieved anything at all in this country?
I wish a speedy recovery to those in hospital. Please take care, but live your lives to the full.
