#ThrowbackThursday Goes To Norway

 Here goes with another #ThrowbackThursday! Bit late today sorry. I’ve mentioned before how a regular job of Virginia was taking a Jewish group from Irelands food with them wherever they went, it had been blessed by their own Rabbi. It was a good job as it took you many places trucks might not necessarily go. Took me to Greece a couple of times, including the isle of Crete but the best one was somewhat unexpected. Information I had been given was after loading head to Denmark, Copenhagen and meet a cruise ship in the port. 8am Monday morning, great stuff, easy run up and could have a 24 hour weekly rest on the way. Got as far as I could and parked up in a service station just outside Copenhagen ready for Monday morning. 7am, up I get, and drive to the cruise terminal. Oh, that’s worrying, no cruise ships! Ring office……’who told you Monday morning?! I should have been Sunday morning!’. I’m not commenting who made the mistake but thankfully it wasn’t me! Bugger, the cruise ship has a 25

The Rise Of Hatred & Bigotry. Please Don’t Let It Consume You. I’m going to talk about hate. After watching the above video I think I must. It’s in the news endlessly at the moment, it can’t be missed, migrants and the endless amount of hateful language directed at them. From our own government using war like language to talk about the issue to people online who celebrate when a boat full of desperate people goes down in channel and they all die, it’s all hate, it’s all disgusting. It often begins with people questioning why often it’s boat loads of young men, then in the other breath they comment and asking why women and children are forced onto these boats by the men. From the get go it shows that they simply cannot ever win. People seem to think they come here on a whim, like they only decided yesterday to risk themselves and often their entire families. Over and over people say we are full, seem to be under the illusion that we take more than anyone

Another Day Done

  Great course again today. Really settling into them now and finding my feet. Thanks so much if you’ve booked, got some regular repeat bookings already. As I set out to do I was determined for it not to turn into a dull one sided affair with just me droning on, all the days I’ve done so far could be mistaken for friends having a chat if you randomly dropped in. Everyone on each course has a life time of experience that we can all take advice and ideas from and we do exactly that. Each time so far I leave with an A4 sheet covered in writing, stuff to look into, stuff to research, stuff from others I can use in future courses, it’s brilliant and thank you to those who’ve joined me so far. Next one is a daytime one next Saturday, 4/3/23 8am. Company Image & Security. I’ve an enormous amount of experience when it comes to company image as you know so I’m quite excited about this one, one for you if you’ve ever wanted to dive into the social media world in a work capacity. I’d love it

#MythBustingTrucker Storytime!

 So my myth busting TikTok seems to be popular.  I had a former DVSA officer on Saturdays Driver CPC and this entertaining story is one of his and entirely true. Hope you enjoy! Been on my blog a few days, the blog still lives under a new name. Was making a check of an R-series. These (as do many other makes and models) allows certain diagnostics to be done via the dash. A certain code is brought up in the ABS system if movement is detected, though the speedo has no signal. Later R-series show the exact date and time, though by plugging in some basic diagnostic kit, the earlier ones will also report the date and time of the "event". This particular one showed that the day before, at around tea time, the fault was shown. The drivers card ejected. It was the same driver (and owner) as encountered on the day of the check. The usual reason for this fault was the use of a magnet (or other clever device) to interrupt the signal to the tacho from the
