I drove to the Park’n’Ride at the north of Oxford today, from where I would cycle into town. On my way down, my route takes me past the edge of Kidlington where Virgin boss, Richard Branson lives. I passed several ‘event’ signs with Virgin and an arrow pointing in the direction of a massive traffic jam down the country lanes. I remembered that every year Richard Branson has a big party for all his staff of his various companies at the grounds of his house.

What with Virgin Music, being one of the companies, I’m sure that I must have driven past loads of famous people in their cars, stuck in that traffic jam. I didn’t see any though. I failed to notice famous people…

Edit: Four hours later when I left Oxford, that traffic jam, far from diminished was about twice along. It was a hot day too…
