    the Chinese Year of the Dragon so I checked this out with old Mr Chan from my excellent local Chinese takeaway and according to ancient Eastern wisdom this year the capital will be all aflame with passion and abundant energy As I d just ordered my favourite hot dish of sizzling King Prawns with Chilli and Garlic sauce I thought I was definitely on to a good start Mayor of London London has the biggest Chinese New Year celebrations outside of Asia and no less a dignitary than Boris Johnson the Mayor of London is really up for it With the Year of the Dragon s themes of passion ambition and success I can think of no better way to help kick off a year of amazing highlights he said On January 29 th there s a huge celebration in Trafalgar Square with traditional Chinese dragon and lion dances acrobats ethnic songs and music Firecrackers and a dazzling light show will form an exciting backdrop to a parade of floats bearing mythical creatures like dragons and goddesses Chinatown and also Leicester Square will hold celebrations with Chinese performance artists and food stalls and in Shaftsbury Avenue a stage will be erected for local Chinese artists to dress up as iconic Chinese symbols and well all shapes and sizes of dragons Chinese Horoscope I looked up my own Chinese birth year and it seems I was born in the Year of the Horse Some of them can certainly gallop along at a fair pace but I don t know if I d put myself in the thoroughbred racehorse category as I like to take life more easily In fact the horsepower of Mercedes S class is much more to my taste than the use of my own legs If anyone wants

    the creative innovative and edgy style of its fashionistas Well I hold my hands up my appreciation of London street cred probably extends as far as checking out the sleek and streamlined lines of beautiful high end cars Let s face it you d go a long way before you d find finer vital statistics than those of an S Class Mercedes in London or anywhere else But then I could be biased Alexander McQueen It s all just part of the day and night job for Mercedes Chauffeur Hire to deliver London s bright young things to and from the finest most fashionable hang outs in the capital So clearly I always have my ear to the ground and my trend antenna tuned in to the fashion zeitgeist This February they tell me the place to be the fashion show to see in London Fashion Week is McQ from the house of Alexander McQueen It s aimed at the young the free and the fabulous so that rules me out but Sarah Burton the designer of that royal wedding dress for Catherine the Duchess of Cambridge is heading up the brand As the McQ store is also just about to open up in Mayfair I m told anyone who s anyone in glitterati land will be queuing up to be there Or be square Or is that expression just not cool anymore Stella McCartney Cool square allright I put my hands up again What do I know I ve also heard that Stella McCartney Fab Macca s designer daughter is showing at London Fashion Week but really I m not an aficionado at the cutting edge of all things funky in London I ll leave that to those who are stylish and elegant enough to choose to be driven

    it s the London Olympic Games and we won the bid However many medals we may or may not get during the actual tournament at least we got to stage this great event and it s an honour So I won t mention dodgy officials or alleged corruption or tube strikes or bus strikes or traffic jams or the massive cost of the proceedings It s an honour and I m looking forward to the Olympic Games in London with pride The Olympic Torch It travelled all over the UK and not just from John O Groats to Lands End but to Northern Ireland and the Outer Hebrides too Island hopping abseiling being held aloft in pouring rain nothing put out the flame as it journeyed to the capital for the start of the Summer Olympics at the end of July 2012 Dedicated denizens of this fair country have been soaked exhausted and elated to carry the torch to its final destination in a historical tribute to the ceremony that started in Ancient Greece There have been traffic jams eager onlookers even more traffic jams The Olympic Games now has worldwide participation and so this cosmopolitan city of London has even more need of a first class London Chauffeur Service Just watch me navigate around the capital I can t wait The London Summer Olympics 2012 Surely that s just a rumour who mentioned summer Come on let s face it in 2012 it was a bit of a wash out Now though it s official the Summer Olympics have come to London and I for one am delighted What difference does a bit of traffic blockage make in the great scheme of things For a London chauffeur it all just adds to the spice of life and I see

    an especially big deal in 2012 the year of the Queen s Diamond Jubilee Her Majesty the Queen arrives at Ascot each day by 2pm ready for the racing to start at 2 30pm My Fair Lady Personally I go to Ascot because I love the atmosphere I ve always loved horses and I like to have a flutter My lovely wife just likes to check out all the fabulous hats My Fair Lady from 1964 is one of her favourite films and when my own fair lady watched beautiful Audrey Hepburn in the character of Eliza Doolittle shouting Move Your Bloomin A se during the film s Ascot opening day her love of Ascot was decided What a smashing positively dashing spectacle The Ascot Opening Day So goes the song from the film and if you are into style and elegance along with a dash of sporting charm then Ascot is for you Know Your Place Always choose which part of Ascot to attend very carefully The top of the range Royal Enclosure will only admit members To become a member you must be recommended by an existing badge holder who has attended Ascot for four previous years Ladies must wear a hat or a head piece with a base of at least four inches and dress modestly and formally Gentlemen to quote from the Ascot website must wear black or grey morning dress Well I like to think I m a gentleman just like the next man but what a palaver The more accessible Grandstand Admission gives access to Big Screen TVs a military band and a traditional sing along at the end of each days races together with a free song book Now that sounds more like it Even here ladies are required to wear a hat

    Winter conditions are just more difficult when you re out and about driving around You see things things you d rather not be aware of Cars skid Your windscreen wipers had better be in good condition or your vision will be impaired by snow hale and rain Are the roads gritted Carefully plan your route it s much more likely that major roads will be clear of ice Drive Carefully Think of road conditions drive more slowly and keep a safe distance between yourself and other drivers If they have to stop suddenly you will have to do the same By braking hard you sharply increase the risk of skidding If someone insists on driving up your rear end then let them go ahead of you keeping safe is what matters If this isn t possible then increase the gap between yourself and the car in front Slow down in advance of junctions and bends and bear in mind that ice takes the colour of its back ground so it is hard to establish whether it s there More often than not you won t know until you are already driving on it So if you can t avoid skidding then know how to do it as safely as possible How to Control a Skid If you are unfortunate and you skid do not brake hard but slowly and gently Often you can get out of it by releasing the brake and accelerating lightly When skidding sideways make sure you gently turn your wheel to the skid s direction In other words if your rear wheels are sliding to the right steer your wheel to the right and vice versa but be prepared to turn your wheel again in the opposite direction if necessary Immediately turning the wheel against the direction in which you are skidding would just create more inertia for the car to keep on going Wait until you feel your tyres have grip again before attempting to brake or accelerate away Oh and at the expense of seeming repetitive the best grip is provided by winter tyres Rescue Kit When travelling by car in winter plan ahead Give yourself enough time to get there and on longer journeys make sure you know what driving conditions are like at the other end Do people know you ve left and what time you re due to arrive What would you do if you got stranded Take an emergency kit in the boot A tow rope warm clothes blankets a shovel a picnic basket OK it s cold but you still need to eat and just think your drinks will be nice and cold Soft drinks obviously Oh and take sun glasses snow glare can be blinding light reflects off snow and ice So you re equipped for the long haul Do you have a fully charged mobile phone in case you need to call or text someone for help Does your sat nav work OK You need to know

    of winter tyres and why we choose to use them This is very close to my own heart as I care about safety and if you do too then read on do It is essential that our passengers are comfortable cosy and above all safe If you only ever sit in a car that someone else is driving before you make the decision to pay for a great ride consider why it s a good idea to take that ride Choose someone who cares whether your transport is perfectly equipped to withstand whatever the weather throws at it Someone who cares that it will get you there happy warm and well So what s the Big Deal with Winter Tyres Mercedes Chauffeur Hire uses winter tyres from November to March regardless snow or shine They are engineered to perform to the optimum level available in unpredictable English winters Even so just 0 5 of overall UK tyre sales are those of winter tyres Quite simply switching tyres is not something we re accustomed to in this country Well dusting off my soap box for a second here I say and believe me this is my business I know what I m talking about not for nothing have winter tyres been perfected manufactured and distributed Here s the technical bit they greatly increase traction especially in cold and on snowy roads And talking about snowy and icy roads if your car happens to be rear wheel drive like our Mercedes S class or Viano vehicles without winter tyres you will either be parked on your driveway praying for good weather or if you are kamikaze enough to go on the road you will be stopping everybody and anybody every 10 minutes begging for a push Winter tyres stay softer in cold
