In case you haven’t heard:
A car bomb planted in central London would have caused “carnage” if it had exploded, police say.
A controlled explosion was carried out on the car, packed with 60 litres of petrol, gas cylinders and nails, in Haymarket, near Piccadilly Circus.
An ambulance crew saw smoke coming from the green Mercedes, near the Tiger Tiger nightclub at 0130BST (030GMT).
London’s Park Lane was later cordoned off while a suspicious vehicle was investigated.
Scotland Yard, Assistant Commissioner Tarique Ghaffur urged people to be “alert and vigilant” and to report any suspicions to the police.

Looks like we’re going to have all sorts of heightened security when we go on our church trip to England 24 days from now since the threat level has been increased. But I never understand those threat levels. How do they know that the threat has heightened? Isn’t it more just like an “awareness level” since whenever they raise it the only thing that happens is heightened awareness. I don’t think some terrorists are going to go out bombing on a day when the threat level is on red, because, hey they’ll get caught. The system doesn’t make any sense to me! Anyway.
I’m sitting at home right now, getting things done on drums and such before I go back to my house sitting place right after dinner. Thanks for reading.
