Airlines that serve meals allow one to pick food from a list of “meal options”. As a vegetarian, who is also dairy and wheat intolerant, I have found that none of the choices cater for my precise need. (Airlines don’t seem to think that wheat and dairy intolerance go together).

One option is to request a vegan (dairy-free) meal and throw away the bread roll. Something else I would consider is asking for a “Hindu” meal option. But last week I discovered that BA serves chicken and SAS serves beef as a Hindu meal. Strange that.

I’ve spent last week travelling in Denmark and Sweden visiting a client. The photo above was my ride home, a flight that was delayed because the nose tyre had to be replaced after it landed in Copenhagen. This was good news because my inbound flight was delayed and I would have missed it if it had departed on time.  Also lightening striking twice and all that.

When lightening strikes twice in the same place, the electricians are responsible. On the other hand lightning striking twice in the same place is a common occurence.
