in reply to Top goal for 2004

I've been saying this for years, but I think I really should get round to it this year. As much as I hate cars, I think my responsibilities as a parent mean I should at least learn how to drive the damn things, even if I still refuse to own one of them :)

    Cor blimey, another person who doesn't drive. To explain I grew up in the wilds of Scotland and couldn't afford a car. Moved to London and didn't want to drive a car (have you seen how they drive {shudder} scary stuff). Now I live in a small town and don't really need a car.

    But like cLive ;-) says later, as an emergency contingent, its probably a good idea.

    Nice to know I'm not alone as a non driver :)

    You live in Santa Monica, California and you don't drive? How is that possible? No kidding, how do you manage?

      I live 1.7 miles from my office, cycling there and wherever else I need to go to and, at a pinch, persuade my wife to give me a ride if really needed.

      It's only the fact that she's ill and out of town at the moment that I'm beginning to realise how important it is that I learn for emergencies like this :)

      Needs must, I suppose...
