I was looking into this awhile ago but decided against it. Also looked into prepaying but it seems that's not all what initially appears either so didn't bother!

i rang both undertakers and Church to enquire about  reserving and paying for a crem spot,  seems I can't do that  ::)

I don't go in the park much but also thought they still were available in school holidays?
Does the train still run?

Going back to the time geebee mentions there was also a small paddling pool in that area - that's long gone.

Alas I fear a general election with Labour getting in headed by Jeremy Corbyn will NOT be an answer.

I.M.O.  Corbyn has no leadership qualities whatsoever, this is known now and they are only the opposition at the moment.

Have to agree with you there.
Right from day one I said he was no leader.
I would never vote for him. He's a dark horse and one not to be trusted!

Perhaps it's one bunch of stubborn Tories who have realised that the iron lady times wasn't to be replicated again due to the fact that all their plans are going tits up and the people are finally starting to show a bit of solidarity and comradery.

Totally agree Fly, never in my life time can i remember such hardship, created in the UK.
The ripples are still rolling over the UK with the cut backs they have made and as is generally the case the peasants will revolt!

One stubborn lady who for some reason just couldn't see past the plan she had despite others telling her.
Bringing back the same proposals put in a different way just don't work.
I think she may have got it now????
I didn't feel sorry for her when she broke at the end of her speech. She looked like a spoiled child who had finally been told no - and realised they were not getting their own way

I bet they've all got other things on their minds at this time of year  >;
Give them a few week, you won't be able to put enough food out for them (y)

Quite right Fly, the greeder beggers are guzzling as fast as we can put it out.
Also the fledges are forming queues to use the water dish for a bath - by mid day it's empty!
Whilst the bird bath is I think a tad too cold for them as little feet go in and then quickly back out  :))

It is alleged......
It would appear that the company mentioned is not the only Council run energy company, and most seem to be heading for the same abyss.
The Councils seem to be setting up "local" energy companies under the Council banner, but in reality all they are doing is drumming up trade for an established energy company {who remains in the background doing all the work} and basically being given a "bonus" for every new customer they sign up {yes a bit like chuggers}.
Over recent months at least 10 small energy companies have turned turtle, and there's every chance more will follow!

Hi Bumblebee if you a face book user there is a group on there which is for people like yourself who are trying to contact people from their past.
I can't remember the name of the group but I'm sure someone will know on here.
Good luck  :)

No online banking for me and I still write the occasional cheque. ( shock horror ) I don't like the idea of contactless cards either but we seem stuck with them.
If they get lost/stolen it's easy for them to be used although only small amounts but rather in my purse than a theirs

It's been taken off No more Jezza. We said he was out of line at times and would end up with a punch on the nose!
I think Oprah set this kind of show off didn't she although much milder viewing, then Kilroy came along and eventually got pulled off the air.
J.K. will bounce back in  Ross Kemp style shows I reckon

I don't have much interest on the Royals to be honest, although did watch briefly as the new parents brought out baby to show everyone.
I'm surprised Meghan walked out as she still has some err baby 'wobble' ( meeeooww) and generally when we get to see them after babies are born they are back to looking like stick insects.

General Discussion / Trail Camera

I have treated myself to one so I can view my 'babies' or Hedgehogs who frequent my garden.
Have to admit I am struggling with the settings a bit as don't really know anything about PIR's etc.
I prefer the video setting to photo setting.

Still I have seen my babies - at least two which are fat ones. One I have called 'Ferk' no prizes for guessing why  How they get into their feeding house together I'm not sure!!

Also the two cats are seen ( not ours and they visit during the day ) and one seems to have spotted the infra red light coming on on the camera  ;D

The one thing I didn't expect was the Fox well maybe more than one as I have captured it on different nights and one seems larger than the other  :-?

I will continue with experimenting with the settings and maybe one day will get a short clip on here!!
