How governments staff projects - holiday entertainment

At coffee last Sunday, a number of riders expressed their concerns, the city was spending half-million dollars to install six parking spots. This is a bargain price? Why don't we let Sir Humphrey Appleby, of “Yes Minster”, explain why this is such a great deal! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U01oua...

Conducting a poll to get the "correct" result!

I understand the Club is going to conduct a survey to assist in the selection of a new kit design. Maybe, the committee members, tasked with designing the survey, would be helped by the advice given by Sir Humphrey Appleby in this Yes Minister clip!

Cross Training

I decided to solve the flooding of my garage by installing a drain. Simple job: lift the asphalt using a jack hammer, dig a hole, install the drain. What could go wrong? There were large boulders in the way!! I used muscles not used in cycling to remove them using a pick and boards as leavers. What ...
