  1. I doubt the dog identifies as a vegan! Generally identified as an omnivore rather than carnivore. Why oh why do vegans wish to impose their beliefs on others?
  2. Been down that path. "I will go and see Brian next week". Brian would say, " I will go and see Martin next week". Then I get a phone call from Brian's eldest daughter saying he had collapsed and died. Never smoked, a lot fitter than me. As YnysMon says in his last sentence, but make the effort to visit.
  3. I have only just found this thread. Wonderful. Taleteller said "Our caravan park was at the end of Marsh Road which turns back sharply from the main road. Today, this left turn is prohibited, a complete circuit of the new roundabout on Saltwater way and a right turn being the preferred manner of entry onto Marsh Road. But in the 1970's a left turn it was, waiting for oncoming traffic to clear and then swinging wide across both lanes and then down by the railway station along the somewhat bumpy lane, past the “new” holiday chalets, Knight's Creek and finally to Camping Boats". I had a boat at Broadlands from 2004 for 13 years. A lovely place under Peter Catchpole's stewardship.Then Tingdene took over after Peter's passing. So, boat moved to Littleport on the Gt Ousefor 2 years. Now on the Nene having an in depth refit. Maybe back to the Broads next year.

    So, the RNLI makes a loss of £6.3 million having donated £3 million for foreign projects and has to cut 135 jobs.. Looks like incompetence to me and maybe Mark Dowie needs to be reminded of the sign on President Harry S Truman's desk. The Buck Stops Here Sadly, these days, telephone number salaries attract far more bulls+++ters and chancers than competent people.
  5. No longer there, sold I think a year or so ago.
  6. An old single sided razor blade? They had a nice stiff back. Can you still get them? I have a beard so do not do a lot of shaving!
  7. Deputy Assistant Director, third level in the food chain. 200k, the NHS certainly know how to pay themselves and then they tell us the current government (of whatever hue) keep them short of money!
  8. I am pretty certain that he went to Woodbridge School, so he has a Suffolk connection!!!
  9. Indeed HEM it was a Grunau baby. At the time, the most exotic glider we had was a Ka6 and as Dad was paying for my brother and I to fly, we never progressed that far!
  10. For HEM, The last one I flew solo. This is not the actual glider but I flew it in Germany (RAF Laarbruch) a bit more than a fortnight ago!
  11. I would imagine that you would be able to transit Reedham bridge if clearance is there for you. See http://www.broads-authority.gov.uk/boating/navigating-the-broads/bridge-heights-and-opening-times BA say 10ft clearance at HW in Summer. All the buggeration factor over the railway will be finished at the end of March!
  12. Crumbs, that is a bit more than a fortnight ago!
  13. Just had a weekend staying at Whitley Bay. Lovely little place and some cracking proper old drinkers pubs. reasonably priced too. Trip back was a bit of a pain with cancelled and delayed trains. but the upside is that whilst 90 mins late I get my ticket money back. Will help to pay towards my return visit!
  14. It was a shame that they had to describe the vessels carrying the spoil away as wherries.
