Dartboard Costume

This year the Ladbrokes World Darts Championship will be held from the 15th of December to the 2nd of January 2012. It will mark the culmination of the PDC darts 2011 calendar and will be broadcast live on Sky Sports. Personally, I link this time of year to being off work for the Christmas break, it's bitterly cold outside like a lemon eating a Magnum. Yes I know, I'm painting a picture here. Anyway, it's probably snowing and I'll find myself round a friends house and almost always the PDC world championship darts from the Alexandra Palace will be on Sky.

Green Cross Code Man Costume

Here's an interesting bit of trivia for you. The first ever zebra crossing to be officially implemented in the UK was in Slough, Berkshire, on October 31, 1951. How we forgot to share that fact on Halloween is remarkable. The zebra crossing has been a prominent feature on British roads for six decades, yes, the road safety measure that you and I take for granted daily is 60 years old. The same age as Dean Kamen, inventor of the Segway. But fancy dress and road safety we hear you cry! Yes, there is a vague connection in the form of a Green Cross Code Man fancy dress costume, read on, The 60th annniversary of the zebra crossing is more interesting than you might think.
