It's not often I get very interested in a band that isn't played heavily on the radio stations I listen to (XFM, Radio 1, Virgin), but a band on Zane Lowe (Radio 1) tonight really caught my ears - Field Music/. It reminded me of early Genesis - very tuneful and interesting.

A couple of things amused me about the recent snow fall we had in the south of England. One was a family out for a walk on the Thursday morning. Trailing behind the mum and two teenage daughters was the dad with a mobile to his ear. "I'll get my guy to talk to your guy", he said. Have a break from work I thought, standing by the snowball that I'd just made that was so large I could hardly roll it.

The second was the people getting stuck at the end of our road. It slopes away a bit and if people back down the slope to turn then they can't come back up. I've done it myself. Fortunately there was a guy with a big 4x4 who was able to pull people out, with a bit of help from the grit bin and my spade. One of the cars that got stuck was a smaller 4x4. 4 wheel drive? 4 wheels spinning at once.
