Does that woman really have only the standard five fingers on each hand?
Love her music.
To hell with her music.

Give me a box of Cadbury's milk chocolate fingers instead any time. They are much more enjoyable, especially with a Genesis CD playing in the background!

Morning all.
Seems to be turning into an "all right" sort of day.
Nice and coolish, good for a pleasant walk down along the canal I think.

If you're going for a walk along the canal HF, put on your hard hat and hi-vis and head along our way. We need all the help we can get. Mind you, if you walk to the restoration site, you'll be too knackered to work and won't be able to take refreshment in the nearest pub - the Mucky Duck closed at Easter.

Another one !!

Went up the Erewash last year. A comfortable cruise from Shardlow to the
Great Northern Basin at Langley Mill but no decent pubs along the whole route until you get to the Basin.
The Erewash is in great nick due to the efforts of the volunteers. I must say
the Canal and River Trust have also done quite a bit of work around our area
to improve things.

HF,

The good news is the Duchess is looking for a new tenant. The previous tenant had the place for 43 years and decided not to renew his tenancy agreement. The campsite attached to the pub has re-started taking bookings and was pretty busy over the bank holiday. The downside is with the pub being shut, a lot of potential business is being lost although the tea and cakes offered in our depot took up some of the slack.

Maybe you should get these, it would stop Rooney berating the ref every match with his mouth full.




Best comment I saw yesterday was someone saying, they should get Fergie back and the referees!

MUST be in England. Nowhere else would one have a sufficient amount of rain to fill all those barrels...

Yer but nowadays you would have to pay water rates on the free water you collected off your roof, the rain apparently belongs to the private water companies,in my case a Chinese one.

Collecting rainwater is still the thing here in Oz. As well as the familiar corrugated metal rainwater tanks there are now some rather clever "slimline" ones that tuck under the eaves.



They can be added to and inter-connected so you can collect as much rainwater as you like, in fact these things are encouraged.

A curious lack of chimney pots Mr. Draper.
Early Council economies?

Another view of Mr D's Doctor Terrace which was in Bedlington.
Built in 1874, running water was installed in 1876. Note the butts have
now disappeared to be replaced with television aerials and chimney pots.



All seem to have had an extension added as well. Something looks wrong about the road width
between the two photos.
