Outside the staff residence of my local hospital there is a sign that reads. SLOW CHILDREN PLAYING 10 MPH. I dread to think what speed the fast chidren are playing at. On a street near where I live there is a sign that says. NEW ROAD LAYOUT AHEAD. Nothing odd there. I hear you ask, but this sign is half way along a cul de sac. And finally . I was travelling home towards Basingstoke along the A30 when I saw a sign saying. BASINGSTOKE 6. About 200yrds further on there was another sign that said. BASINGSTOKE 7.
