Re: Britain's 'angriest town.'

Despite a long battle, a Premier Inn has been approved for the small city of St.David's. I didn't get involved in the issue myself, but obviously the local hoteliers and B&B owners are up in arms. I can't see that it'll bring much employment to the area, though it may bring employees in. Given h...

Re: Libraries, public, renaissance of: DDC 020.336

It seems I must stand /sit corrected, as last week when driving into town, we spotted a mobile library van.
It wasn't as big as the old one that used to visit our village and don't know where it was headed.
Must investigate; watch this space. :wink:

Re: scam calls

Had one at lunch time and I just let it say what it wanted and then it dropped out.

Coincidentally, went to check my emails on my Mac and there was an email from BT telling me how to ignore scams and to report any to BT.com/Scams

How do I know that was a genuine message and link from BT?

I get pips at 2 o'clock, 4 o'clock, 8 o'clock and 10 o'clock.

Peugeot Pantera 20" - 51cm

This was my son's bike that I refurbished a couple of years ago, but hasn't been used much since (approx 50 miles). It's a mid-1990's Peugeot Pantera 20" (51cm) centre to top steel frame. Fitted with down tube levers, it was originally 12 speed but I've converted it to 18 speed to cope better w...

Re: Rugger Starts At 19.25 Tonight - Eng V Irl Tommorow Spoilers Possible!

England were phenomenal last night, fair play. Is that coming from a Welshman in Wales, or (like me) an Englishman n Wales. :) A Welshman in Wales. Although my family tree shows I'm Devon and Sussex on Dad's side and the North-East of England on Mam's side which probably explains why I've never bee...

Re: Who do you resemble?

I must be a bit of a mongrel as I've been told I look like Kenny Everett, Geoff Capes and a chap off the kids programme Rent-a-ghost :? I've met you,though it was a quite a long time ago I have to agree :) Yes, and as I recall I don't see any resemblance to you and Rudolph Nureyev; but thankfully h...

That must have been quite a depressing day then.


Never mind a depressing day, I've never recovered in over 30 years. :wink:

Cycling jersey (Small) taken, thanks.

This a virtually as new, cycling jersey that was my son's. Although it's marked as 42-44 (!) it only measures 17" pit to pit but has plenty of stretch in it for those lithe bodies. :wink: Offered for free, I'll pay the postage in the hope that whoever has it will chuck the equivalent £3 or so i...

Re: Montgomery Canal

Quite narrow and muddy along that stretch, from what I remember (mostly from seeing it as I go over bridges). The nearby lanes are nice though, and pretty quiet if you go Lower Frankton - Rednal - Grimpo - West Felton - (bridge over the A5) - Woolston - Maesbury Marsh. You will of course be stoppin...
