Last night's "Evening Telegraph" and this morning's "Courier" covered the success of the City Council's new Rapid Rhino repairs system for potholes in the city's roads (click on headline to view the Tele's article). I have also been interviewed by Radio Tay on the subject. I certainly believe that, over time, this system will make a real difference to the quality of road surfaces in Dundee.
On another matter entirely, I have become an avid viewer of Masterchef, an obvious programme for one so ungifted in any kitchen (can't co-ordinate boiling the kettle for a cup of tea and producing a slice of toast). Anyway, was good to see the dinner party on Masterchef at the former home of Charles Dickens (now a museum) in Doughty Street, London, last week. The museum is right next door to the HQ of the Institute I work for in my "day job" (and you briefly saw its front door on the programme!) The Dickens Museum has a virtual tour at http://www.dickensmuseum.com/vtour/.
