Quick Morning post

I finally made it to work (left late and there was lots of traffic). Woke up to the news that the Cutty Sark was on fire. This is a big thing as its one of the 'major' landmarks and has immense historical value.

If you want a laugh (or wince especially if your're male) read the 1854 entry on the commentary yesterday. Trust me, it sounded a lot worse when I heard it.
