Affectionately known as The Cawfee Shop. There's no better place to be than in your own coffee shop discussing "whatever" with friends.

Just up the road from us, a guy tries to burglarize a department store, and got himself stuck.

It made the news all over the world. There is something to Warhol's "15 minutes of fame" I reckon.

I saw these on my way into work this morning...

Cops on the run - for Children in Need! - Local News by HugoFox.com

There were 2 runners, with the van way out in front, riding point, with a motorbike immediately in front of the runners, and a car following behind.

Behind them was a tailback about 2 miles long.

Fortunately I was heading in the opposite direction on a totally clear road.

When he gets out of jail perhaps a future in HVAC.

HVAC (heating, ventilating, and air conditioning) is the technology of indoor and vehicular environmental comfort. Its goal is to provide thermal comfort and acceptable indoor air quality. HVAC system design is a subdiscipline of mechanical engineering, based on the principles of thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and heat transfer. Refrigeration is sometimes added to the field's abbreviation as HVAC&R or HVACR, or ventilating is dropped as in HACR (such as the designation of HACR-rated circuit breakers).
