Shirley spotted this Sheffield public bus down at Pond Street Bus Terminus. She snapped it on her phone. "Lose Your Veganity" is a clever slogan for BOSH! Of course it is a little bit naughty but essentially it is saying - try vegan cooking with the help of "Bish Bash BOSH!" You can see the front cover of the book below the slogan.
Down in London, six red buses are currently displaying identical advertising. Just the other day, on Twitter, someone posted this picture of The Number 13 on its morning route:-
Meantime your genial blog correspondent has been visited by an old and most unpleasant acquaintance called Gordon Gout. He first came to me in January 2005 and in the intervening fourteen years there have been intermittent visits connected with the chemistry of my body. Often months have gone by without a single visit.
Currently my left big toe is throbbing like the devil and I am limping rather than walking. In my experience, gout is like an internal poison. Okay, the toe is throbbing but the rest of me is somehow physically stressed and I will not be back to normal until Gordon Gout disappears. It will be like a cloud lifting.
On Thursday, I managed to hobble a few yards in Whirlowbrook Park. I wanted to take some pictures of the arum lilies that grow there each spring - down in the muddy hollow adjacent to Limb Brook. They are spectacular plants that look as though they belong in science fiction.
