Drive Safley

According to this report on Sky News the music you listen to in the car has an effect on the way you drive. But then I've always known that lifting your hands to praise God at the same time as driving was going to cause some problems ;-)

Wahey!!!! It's like buses, you wait for ages for one to come along and then two arrive at once!

Much to be commended and encouraged Mr R. Past transgressions in bloglessness are almost forgiven :-)

Then again I'm starting to worry that you listen to praise music in the car.

Actually you can lose those last 3 words.

What was it you were saying about "you think you know someone..."

...though I prefer to believe you were joking.

which of course recalls the ancient story of the hitch-hiker who gets a lift from a clergyperson...They chat amicably about this and that, till they reach the top of a hill overlooking the vicar's parish. He says to his passenger "You'll have to forgive me if I stop talking now...you see I always pray as I drive down into my patch.."
The hitchhiker, in a very small voice, asks "Do you close your eyes? "

Caroline, I suspect the modus of controls wouldn't greatly matter, whether one hand or two were on the wheel, I suspect it/they would be battling a strange desire to vere towards the central reservation...

When we were up in Philadelphia driving on one of the interstates there was a guy there listening (we believe) to praise music. He had his window down and every now and again his arm would shoot out, raised toward the sky. I think it's more than just dangerous for the driver involved but for other cars too - we were laughing uncontrollably and so our driving was probably sub-par too!
