M1 around Leicester is almost always shut with accidents.

I'm no fan of motorway driving at the best of times. You have to take your life in your hands and hope for the best.

You have less chance dying from COVID, I reckon.

very localised news for me.
Managed to get Medieval Total war working on my pc.0
downloaded and installed as instructed then watched a You tube tutorial on how to swap a few files ( have the gold edition which the you tube video states wont work on ) swapped a few .dll files ?? and blow me it started.

next is if it does the campaigns which is all I really like not the battles.

For many years I was unable to play Med because a roommate left with one of the discs. Eventually it hit $4 on Steam so I just bought it again. It's a fantastic game.

Oddly enough, I don't like the other titles from the same company. You're correct, that campaign is something magical. Like AOEII.

As to news, there's actually some good news for a change. The Uber law was struck down as unconstitutional. I walked away from that election dispirited, most of the initiatives I supported failed, and the bad ones passed. That Uber law was particularly stinky.

I was also glad to see that law struck down.

I try to avoid taking Uber, because the company's business model sucks.  It exploits its workers too much for me to feel right about taking one just because it's cheaper than a regular cab.

Well, at least you have that fine cheese as consolation.

Nothing to speak of in London. Just very chilly all of a sudden.

 ;D ;D ;D ;D,
Yes that glorious supermarket mass produced lumps of rubber.  :-\
But if a person becomes "Indiana Jones" and does look around, true gems can be found of this cheese.
Next weekend friends are having a cheese night and someone suggested for us to make a ball of cheese which is apparently popular in the USA.
(when i hear this I straight away wait for the "WHATS THAT from the locals)

Cheese balls are a joke among serious foodies.

You can pick them up at shopping mall stores like Hickory Farms.  There's great cheesewrights in the U.S.  I remember something called Stinking Bishop offered at the National Gallery restaurant last time I was in England.  That's to your credit, that you Brits can invent such great names for cheese.

That's nothing - you should see our beer names.
