Pfff it's autumn in the Netherlands again, first day of heavy wind and rainfall and the traffic (car and public transport) seems unable to cope with it.

Today the total traffic jam lenght was 420km, with a normal peak hour jam length of 300km.. Rail traffic was also disrupted due to slippery rails and power outtages, while in Rotterdam several tramlines ran irregular due to the winds..

Worst of all, I can't go rowing this afternoon due to the heavy winds

I like that Polish say "droga" (road), which means drug in Spanish (road=carretera) .

I think that we always have to have one forumer missing. At the beginning it was Verso, now Road_UK...

Who will be next after Road_UK comes back?

Same here, there is a Polish book called Papież na drogach which means in Slovak "Pop on drugs" (Pápež na drogách).

Road_UK is probably on some epic road trip to Kirkenes or Moscow or Athens or Tangiers or all of these combined.

He might have to carry something from Portugal to Russia... Sagres to Vladivostok probably

Not really. Yank bacon is disgusting. It also looks like something you'd only eat under the influence of some very strong beer.

I've never seen anything like it. Hopefully this one bakery's trying it as a novelty. Although Nexis seems to like it.

That's not a pancake. It's a cupcake. A pancake-flavored cupcake.

This is a pancake to me (not necessarily with the stuffing). I don't like them.
