  1. Hydraulic

    Hadric Hagrid Not quite as magical as hydraulics, but I prefer electrics..
  2. Let Off Steam In Here !!!!

    Try being a supermarket manager trying to stack all the stuff for the last week of the Christmas rush, and then some prat at head office sends several cages of Easter eggs...

  4. The Authority Oversteps The Mark?

    I must admit that those remarks on why the broads is not / should not be, a national Park are some of the best explanations I've seen in the EDP...
  5. Unusual Sign

    Thanks for your help so far, the sign I've got has the compasses between the paws, not huge infront of the lion, and of course my sign has a crown above it's head... I had come across that Lion and compass place in the USA in my searches, in fact it's seems to dominate the net, getting in the way of the searches...
  6. Unusual Sign

    A couple of years ago I dug out of my garden what looked like a garden slab.... Until I turned it over. The sign is about 2ft6 inch high and 18 inches wide cast concrete. On it, in positive relief, there is a lion standing on its hind legs, holding a pair of compasses between its front paws ( but no set square as in a masonic symbol) and a crown floating above the lions head. Now the house is on the site of a pub closed 1895, so I'm wondering if it's some sort of brewery sign. You would not go to the effort of making a mold for this, just for one pub though.. Has anyone any ideas to confirm its origin?
  7. Let Off Steam In Here !!!!

    Just what is it do the supply industries have against people in the countryside near Stalham? Having had the problems of the cremated Swan, the electric people are closing the road past the church. I drive back today past the cremated Swan down the hill to find the road from Ingham corner towards Lessingham closed, no pre warning, no signs until you reach the closure. Although there have been blue marks on the road for a fortnight. The diversion takes you towards Palling then turns right back to the cremated Swan!!!! They are idiots!!!!

  10. Potter Heigham Bridge

    I've spoken to a lady who remembers that she could not go beneath the railway bridge as they were taking it down at the time. She worked out that was 1968.. If Natural England had their way we could all have gone round the Medieval Bridge.... Out via GT Yarmouth up the coast and back in via the new coastal eastury through the abandoned sea defences...

    oh dear more problems, http://www.edp24.co.uk/news/environment/broads-authority-denies-targeting-houseboat-owner-1-5237631 and I seem to remember that one of the excuses for not dredging was the contamination of the spoils... http://www.edp24.co.uk/news/environment/valuable-dredged-broads-sediment-has-many-uses-1-5237627

  13. Let Off Steam In Here !!!!

    No but this stupid version of Windows 10 is, it's stopping often, it didn't show any updates to the site (or anything else) for about ten minutes. I think there are mass updates to the hundreds of computers in this Building going on...

    They went bust, too much Far eastern carp, not enough finely modelled stock. I use Emgs... http://www.emgs.org/ Or locally Great Eastern Models in Norwich http://www.greateasternmodels.co.uk/ Or Bouys toys in Cromer Or The Bure Valley Railway shop in Aylsham http://www.bvrw.co.uk/shop/model-railway/ They are the places to go for people of discernment...
