Sign of the times…speed camera funnies

the Daily Mail camerasign2.jpgAs protests go, it spells out the sentiments of many motorists. But police have failed to see the funny side after a saboteur started altering ‘Speed Cameras’ signs to read ‘Greed Cameras’.At least ten are believed to have been changed using home-made stickers in Colchester, Essex, over the past two months. The suspect is believed to be someone who has recently been caught by a camera.

Togetherness to the end

More at Argus Leader Media

An elderly Sioux Falls couple died together Saturday, side by side, of separate illnesses.

Diana Kraft and her husband, Kent, had been married for about 43 years, both born on the same day: Sept. 2, 1941. Diana Kraft had battled Lou Gehrig’s Disease, and Kent had a brief illness.

Police spokesman Loren McManus said the deaths of the Krafts were not suspicious or criminal.

What’s half the size of a car, orange and blinking? A UFO in Bubbenhall

More at icCoventry

Several strange UFO reports have come out of England recently. I don’t know if this means that there have been more sightings or if it means that newspapers are paying more attention or if it has any meaning at all. At any rate here’s another recent report:

Strange sightings of a spinning orange object shooting from the sky have been reported by a shocked Warwickshire couple.

Terrified Cliff and Carol Sheldon say the flashing orange mass nearly smashed into their car in Bubbenhall on Monday night.

They say it was cylindrical in shape, and about half the size of their Vauxhall Corsa.

The down-to-earth couple from Stretton-on-Dunsmore say they have always been sceptical about UFOs.

But the grandparents of-five are in no doubt about what they saw.
