Does F.I.A.T stand for fun in a taxi?

For the first time since I bought it someone tried to flag down the old london taxi I trundle round in.I don't know who was the most suprised,me,or my potential fare when he spotted the dogs in the back.Before buying the taxi I was warned that people would be for ever trying to clamber in the back at every traffic light or hold up but this was the first time it had happened.

As the dogs were just returning from a swimming session the guy would have got a wet backside.With its plasic floor covering,the taxi is easy to hose down after one of their swimming sessions,especially when they've been on the beach,I wouldn't try that with one of those horrible a modern people carriers.

Getting an erection in Lowestoft

SLP are building some some sort of platform for the oil industry.Surrounded by cranes it grows each day a bit like Topsy.
SLP are involved in wind farms and other constructions for the oil industry they are now taking over a lot of the old trawler basin and fish merchant premises on the dockside.New industry replacing the old,most fish is imported anyway but it's a shame to see more nails knocked into the fishing industries coffin.
