It is one of those weeks - again! There's our duplicate Christian meetings to prepare, there are blogs to write, Christmas decorations to install and Sheffield Supertram timetables to update.
Then, after lunch ...
But, seriously folks, things are a bit busy for a few days. And poor Mrs fbb has developed a challenging mix of sciatica and a painful hip problem, so fbb has additional domestic duties.
Such are the delights of being old!
Blogs will be a little curtailed to release a bit more time for "life"!!
Reaction To THAT Map
fbb did contact the Stagecoach boss Mike Watson offering to draw a correct map (free of charge!!) to replace the appalling effort currently on offer on-line.
Mike explain the philosophy behind the new map which aims to show useful places of interchange between key routes; but he did admit that he had not realised than there were some mistakes. There are a lot of mistakes.
Anyway, fbb has been invited to the Stagecoach bunker at Matford to "have a chat".
So work has started on a sample area and the challenges are immediately evident. fbb's first task was to reproduce a something similar to the old map above. It is a bit too big for a blog, but you can click on it to enlarge it.

Here is a larger extract from fbb's proto-map extract.
Simply Super Statement from Swindon
Local resident Ben sent fbb pictures of a leaflet that popped through his letterbox ...
Whatever - it is a small but significant effort at Building Back Better.
Well done GoAhead Swindon!
And thanks Ben.
