This morning there was an item on our local news relating to several incidents which appear to be linked including two ice cream vans that had been vandalised. That got me thinking and I googled "ice cream van wars" and was amazed at the violence surrounding this charming and seemingly innocuous occupation. What is it about ice cream that brings out the devil in the vendors?
As you probably know, on 27th March I am going on an amazing trip overland from London to New York. I have a blog dedicated to this. The best way to access it is to click on the logo on the right side bar. This takes you to Travelpod, a blog site dedicated to travel logs. The reason I write on this site is that it has a pin map which will show where exactly I am in the world.
You may also know that I'm touting for sponsorship which will go direct to Marie Curie. Why Marie Curie? Well, when Davy was so ill in the last two weeks of his life these beautiful people came to the house to help nurse him. They were highly skilled, kind, supportive and reassuring. And do you know what the best thing was? They weren't hampered by PC b......t. If Davy needed lifting, they pitched in and lifted him. I can't tell you what a relief it was to me to know that he was in good and caring hands. Without them I couldn't have respected his wishes of staying at home.
The way to donate is get your credit card, click on the "Just Giving" link on the side bar and it will take you through the process. I am hoping to raise £1000 so please dig deep, it's a very good cause.
