An old and not particularly funny joke that local activists frequently 'share'. Even less funny just now. Today was polling day for many Council Elections and some Mayoral Elections. More than 4,000 people will have been elected today. Local... Read more

All the light bulbs in the kitchen have blown. Of course they are 'special' light bulbs and I can't find anywhere locally that stocks them any more. Not that it matters - I don't have the money to buy them even if I could find a stockist. One... Read more
Big 7tea - 9 weeks to go
Friday, April 27, 2018      1 comments

I'm starting to get a 'shape' now of how this event will be. Which is just as well given I'm organising it! Broadly speaking, a kind of 'fete' affair in the afternoon - free entry. Hopefully with various interesting stalls. £5 per stall hold... Read more
A First World Problem

But a problem nonetheless. There comes a point when there is little, if anything, one can cut back on. I have been going over and over my expenditure today. What can I reduce? The answer is very little. In fact there's only two ways I c... Read more

These days, my 'post box' is looking a bit tattered. It's constantly being filled with junk and bills. Especially at the moment with local elections coming up. ... Read more

Don't listen to the Weather Man/Woman I said. Today was forecast to be grey and overcast with a high chance of rain. Elaine and I arrived at the Boot Sale a little before 8 a.m It was sunny but quite breezy. As the morning wore on the breeze... Read more

There's something in the air. Sometimes we sense change without knowing why. An obvious example is changes in the seasons. It may be yet another cold winter day, yet somehow we sense spring in the air. Or a hot summer's day but we hear the w... Read more

We've all heard the dreaded words 'data protection' I'm sure. Don't get me wrong, I think it is a good thing that our private information is protected [except on facebook seemingly]. But there's protection of our privacy, and then there's obfu... Read more

Yet another meeting of the Birthday Bunch Brunch today. So many of us have our birthdays in March and April that we have fallen behind. We still have two March Birthdays to celebrate. We were somewhat depleted in numbers again today. I pulle... Read more
