just a quick reminder that British Summer Time ends at 1AM Sunday 28th October so put your clocks back tonight and get that extra hour in bed. :sleep:

And for those in Thailand, a reminder that Thai's winter timetable comes into effect tomorrow which sees many flights, including my weekly flights to Hanoi, have their timings changed... sometimes a few minutes, but sometimes 45-60 minutes

Not that it makes much difference but, to clarify, UK clocks go back tonight at 2am BST (1am GMT)

get that extra hour in bed.

Thought I would until the wife announced we were getting up at 5:00am to go to Woking for some important Buddhist event :(
