Get them Monday morning blues?

Blind speed record
A South African has become the world's fastest blind driver after driving across a remote airstrip at 168mph.

Blind since birth, 33-year-old Hein Wagner of Cape Town had a sighted navigator for his record attempt. After crossing the airfield, he told reporters he wanted to do it again, but was considering piloting an aircraft for his next record attempt.

"I'm very happy," said Wagner, whose drive in a borrowed Maserati V8 GranSport was monitored by motoring organisation Motorsport SA and filmed for the Guinness Book of World Records.

Actually we think we saw some of this guy's practice runs down the Queensway dual carriageway in Yeovil; well the way some people drive you'd think they were blind!

Back to the music
Monday again and there is today a sad lack of musical events for you to enjoy. Or perhaps you are still recovering from the weekend anyway?

Your opportunity to shine tonight is the open mic night at the Westgate in Taunton...that's it!
