Edged out of a wobbly old Cornish junction with a building hanging perilously over it, into an unexpected!Landrover.

Lost a chunk of Helga Saab's bumper and probably responsible for repairing a dent in the Landrover. Oh well, at least my no-claims bonus is protected. Surprising it doesn't happen more often, I spose. Someone came running out of a building,having heard the bang: "That's the third time this week on this junction!" she said.

Oh, no! I hope Helga is repairable...

It seems a bit unfair to declare anyone at fault in that situation. Except maybe the council for not putting up warning signs?

I'm hoping I can get an old!new bumper and just get someone to replace it. It only seems to be sort of foamy stuff inside, they must get damaged a lot.

...I looked on ebay and there was one for 20 quid, but it's in Leeds. But there must be a fair number of old saabs being broken for bits around here.

I'm not sure signs would help, you'd still have to edge out cautiously and hope whatever they did. It's all built for carts round there.

Did you ask the people at the car repair place about it? They often have bright ideas about where to find one or have their own connection.

I used to have a Saab. Sometimes I still miss it.

I'm thinking I'll ask them about it tomorrow. There was a knackered clip on that front bumper anyway, so it did need replacing.

Glad you're OK, even if Helga needs surgery.

Gulp. I'm glad you and the other driver are all right.

Goodness! I'm glad it was nothing serious! You'd think they'd put in one of those big convex mirrors if there are that many incidents at that junction. We once almost had an altercation with an unexpected!lorry but were saved by the mirror at the last moment.

The person who told me that there had been three this week did mention getting a mirror put in. I don't know if it would help all that much though, I think one reason I couldn't see was very strong light and shade, and you can't do much about that without demolition.

    There are no zones with different rules in Moscow, but still it was impossible to guess in spring what was or wasn't allowed to do; and now the situation is only a little better. Seems it happens in…

    Thank you! I may try it later today then.

    My sourdough also isn't big on the doubling in size - and it does make good bread. I think you can probably give bread a go.

    I'm not sure whether we were in Tier 1 or 2 at that point...

    LOL. Yeah, I've given up all hope of making sense of these shifty weird rules.

    Love all the waterside encounters!

    Wow! We get huge aircraft carriers in Brooklyn occasionally but I have never shared the water with one.
