Re: Insect

Crikey, I haven't posted on here for some time but seeing this has forced my hand...I think that it is a variant of the Shield Beetle (Hemiptera). From the photo I can see some of the characteristics, although not the classic shield beetle shape. http://www.royensoc.co.uk/insect_info/what/shield_bug...

Re: 83rd Geneva Motor Show 2013

Excellent stuff, I went last year for two days and the ECO theme was fairly predominant too with almost all major manufacturers having some form of electric or high economy vehicles. Did Tesla have a stand this year?

Re: Country Road to 40mph

Unfortunately the section of the driving community most likely to have or cause accidents are those who will continue to drive at excessive speeds no matter what the posted limit is nor the road conditions. I'm all in favour of 20MPH limits in all built up areas because most people will ignore them ...
