Blog2006 ≫ Evacuate

Not sure if there was some kind of emergency today at Charing Cross, there was a log jam of commuters trying to get out of one open exit - if it was an emergency evacuation it was a very slow one. The other exit is possibly closed for a refit of a shop there (they're opening a Marks and Spencer, maybe to rehouse the stock from the massive branch they just closed in Folkestone). There were a stack of emergency vehicles outside the station, but there have been every day this week.

One for the wife: Sudoku combat2, play against someone else.

One for people who are mean like me: How to save money3, bit American though - can you REALLY write off property depreciation against tax here in the UK??? That's insane, I understand for a business you can for assetts you own, like a car or a photocopier, but a property? One tip I do especially like is "If you have to have something, decide what you are replacing first", though this is kind of ironic as I am currently refusing to throw away old broken computers... I'm sure it's not quite the same though. Somehow. Hmm...
