Meanwhile in Edinburgh....



http://news.sky.com/story/1046592/ca...ooned-mercedes

Quote:
Workers were forced to resurface a car park around a stranded vehicle after its owner decided to move barriers to park there.

The area was blocked off by diggers at Edinburgh Waverley railway station, but when they turned up the next day, they found the Mercedes parked in the middle of the site.

Nonetheless, the workers got on with the job as planned and dug up the surface around the marooned blue car.

However, they also built a small ramp so the vehicle could be removed.

A Network Rail spokesman said: "Part of the car park had been cordoned off so we could begin resurfacing it and improve the lighting too.

"Whoever the driver was, he or she decided to move the barriers and park in the worksite anyway.

"We did the work but we left a ramp for them to exit and will be happy to return their vehicle if they contact us."

The scene was caught on camera by Twitter user Alice Robertson, who tweeted: "Not a good day to park in the Edinburgh Waverley car park."

The work is part of Network Rail's £100m refurbishment project of the station.

Interesting thing occurred near Helsingborg, Sweden:

Quote:
Ängelholm: Shortly after 01 o'clock, police received several calls about a motorist who was driving north in the wrong conditions on the E6 between Landskrona and Helsingborg.

The journey ended just south of Ängelholm where police took charge of the male driver at 1:30.

- It is unclear how it did stop but there was no collision and no person has been injured. The oncoming cars could swerve, says Anders Nilsson, county police officers on duty.

The 48-year-old man now suspected of drunken driving and reckless driving.

Talk about reckless...

It had a magnitude of 4.5 and was close to the Slovenian border.

4.5 is pretty much, but probably mountains slowed vibrations.

I remember a very strong thunder at around that time though (even the picture of my TV shook a bit). Maybe that was actually an earthquake.

So BBC America's coverage of the Six Nations England/Scotland game began (annoyingly) at precisely 4 p.m. British time, just in time for the last line of God Save the Queen. So I don't know what songs were sung as national songs before that. Can I assume GSTQ (no disrespect, just feeling lazy) was being used for England? Because (1) I thought they used something else for England (Jerusalem, maybe) and (2) That seems a bit awkward with another UK team involved. What song would they use for England if they were playing in Scotland or Wales?

And also, I just saw a few people with the Catalan-independence flag in the stands. Wonder what that's about....

Cheers!

In Bari they say "Se Parigi avesse lu mer', sarebbe na piccola Ber'" (if Paris had the sea, it would be a Little Bari)

I remember (in the past, BBCAmerica had a pre-game explain-rugby-to-the-Yanks show, and switched to the stadium for the anthems) a line about "to be a nation again..."

As well as I've heard so many different cities define themselves as the "Venice of the North"

Ljubljana is really beautiful, and resembles very much to an Austrian city
