Reading this Bank of England briefing paper changed the way I thought about almost everything (and I was working for a bank at the time...). Worth the hour or two of effort involved. https://t.co/5V6rIyLKZr https://t.co/OBHZoibgJ3

Quoted @mirazc

It took an hour, & in this video he’s sitting on volunteer Lisa’s wrist, making calls. I was unprepared for the incredible reception from other bats who flew low & close around us, calling & encouraging, before he finally launched off & disappeared into the dusk πŸ¦‡ https://t.co/HOOUvhmv6z

This was one of the most magical and moving things I have seen. https://t.co/OWE5vHT7RU

If they'd explained to me that Brexit was a job creation scheme to boost the construction industry in the south east of England I might have considered voting for it. https://t.co/rlfzUut8gf

Quoted @devisridhar

Will people react to Β£10 incentive to eat in restaurants & the push by PM Johnson to go back to live normally? Could it be that it’s the virus that is ruining the economy & best way to get economy going is to drive virus out so people feel safe? Do the hard public health slog.

Hands up who thinks the regime in London is prepared to anything hard or that benefits anyone other than them and their mates? Hard public health slog? I don't think so. https://t.co/QF2bv47CTy

Quoted @KirstyLewin

Hands shaking - came down Mound - took lane - driver behind me revved, blasted horn - forced me over. I caught him at lights and he punishment-passed me and screamed β€˜rude bitch use the cycle lane’. I am so so sick of this. Paint is not protection and β€˜mutual respect’ is a joke.

Hey @CyclingScotland you'd better spend a bit more on those adverts of yours. One more push, eh? https://t.co/wxLPXdwNRd

Quoted @EdinburghRecord

@overlandertheb1 @MaureenChild1 @urbancyclist @DaveJFrench @lmacinnessnp Still trying to avoid original point. It's sad really. Your self esteem will recover when you face up to your failings.

To think I pay my therapist Β£60 an hour for these sessions. You'd think I'd at least get feedback in private.... https://t.co/vahwgOVRkn

"Britain is now British empiring itself." London writers catching on at last. The UK of GB&NI is the last British colony. https://t.co/hhfdIRrSew

Quoted @EdinReporter

Cockburn Street and Victoria Street are open for business – but no cars please we’re eatingΒ out https://t.co/VhG6X7N6vF

Better late than never.... https://t.co/5gX7ZqofgK

Something that will come as zero surprise to any cyclist who has seen a thousand government campaigns urging drivers to be nice around cyclists.

Quoted @samwake

He turned 2 last week, rode on Sheffield ring road this week. I asked her, 3: ("Do you like riding on the special new bike-only road?") "Yeah! ... I want to go further." πŸ₯° Thanks @Bob_of_Hills, @SheffCouncil, @CycleSheffield etc... https://t.co/hv4atcKglP

Isn't this gorgeous @lmacinnessnp ? https://t.co/zSlOGdOyNz

Quoted @GrowLikeGrandad

Unusual toxic courgette recall notice for Mr Fothergill's Zucchini (in comments of below article). An inadvertent cross pollination, presumably from ornamental gourds. The courgettes taste bitter and give you a very bad stomach. https://t.co/3Ex74Tfqla

Paging @AteliersCortada ! https://t.co/LBzdrfgLG8

Some people have a little muscular sphincter in the small of their back and if they ever relax it their spine just slides right out and they can lose it in the street just like that. True story. https://t.co/gX5qMLyoLa

Somehow managed to super-heat the water in the rice pan. Poured in the basmati and it nucleated a big steam bubble and blew everything back out onto the stove. How does that work @DaveJFrench ? Only 10cm deep.

Woman and bike in perfect harmony. https://t.co/q9dzoGIwcV

Really thoughtful stuff from @urbancyclist aided by @DaveJFrench and @lmacinnessnp. That picture of the guy heading into the meat grinder between tram and bus is the reality of cycling in Edinburgh. Enough already. https://t.co/noB61mjiGq
