- Doing it every day gives the hands a really hard time. I've backed off a lot.
- There does seem to be something to it. Scotland is in the grip of a cold snap at the moment, but my hands aren't cold to the point of uselessness doing outdoor work - I was cleaning and lubing rear brake calipers and handbrake cables for about 45 minutes on the weekend, with some discomfort but no reduction in grip strength.
- On returning indoors from the outdoors, I get a rosy feeling within my hands, something I can't say I've felt before.

A few quick words on the "cold hands cure" I've been attempting for a wee while now.

|Take cover! They've got our range!|
Today, it is Glasgow City Council's highly innovative road maintenance solution that must be recognised for such genius. I had previously thought the European idea of laying a fluorescent layer below the tarmac, revealing potholes as wear develops, the very pinnacle of road surface sophistication.
Of course, this was merely the throwing down of the gauntlet; GCC has thought outside the box and shown those Continentals how to get things done!
|I recommend the butterfly stroke, bicyclists.|
Pothole ramps! A brilliant concept. Why waste money filling in potholes, when the premix is of such low quality the hole will reappear in the space of 3 months? With a ramp, one simply builds up a good head of steam and sails through the air above them.
Yes, at last I can sleep safely in the knowledge that I'll never again spill blood bashing out another pulverised wheel bearing hub with these on our cratered, crumbling roads.
Thank you GCC!
