    Pesticide Control

    https://www.change.org/p/the-prime-minister-rt-hon-theresa-may-mp-ban-all-crop-spraying-of-poisonous-pesticides-near-our-homes-schools-and-playgrounds Hi, this is a topic that may be of interest to many of the forum members that have a home or mooring in rural Norfolk Please see link - Georgina Downs has been campaigning to stop the spraying of pesticides close to homes and schools. She has now started a petition to have the topic put before Parliament. Kind regards Richard

  3. We had a new sail from Jeckells, and it's been excellent. Very well made, a reasonable price, its kept well and performs amazingly. Richard
  4. I absolutely agree with this post, and we have had similar experiences e.g you are in the middle lane to go straight over, someone joins from the left and accelerates on your inside, and you cannot safely leave the roundabout. The person on the left sees no reason to give way, as he/she is in their lane, and there is no give way line. I've tried to stay positive about the NDR layout, but on leaving Wroxham to go to Norwich on Tuesday, I was super careful, and found myself again in this situation. On reflection, 3 lanes on a roundabout now seems crazy. I also agree with the Postwick layout also. Very confusing for people. We saw a bit of road rage over this, this morning :-)
  5. My concern would be the exposure of Propylene Glycol to unsuspecting people in the pub. At low levels, I understand it's supposed to be safe, but as PG is also in blood pressure medication, some beers, shampoo, hair dye etc - there is a risk that it can reach toxic levels, causing acidosis and other complications (stomach pain, muscle cramps, stroke etc). We had a few friends become very ill recently, and our research of their condition has led me down this path. I thought that it might be worth sharing.

  13. The Friendly Music Cafe - Absolutely everyone welcome! ... tea, coffee, (amazing) cake, music and company. On Monday, in Horning at St Benets Hall near the river - 11am - 2pm. Acoustic music from Johnnie Walker, Sandra and Malcolm and Lucy (might be Linda ?) fiddle player. A fun and relaxing opportunity to get out and be with people. Come along, on your own or bring a friend. The one that happened last month went really well... regards Richard
  14. Hi, Myself and some friends have come up with the idea of 'The Friendly Music Cafe' - in some respects it's a crazy idea, but I'll do my best to explain. The idea was to form some kind of daytime 'drop-in' place where people could meet up, have a cup of tea and generally engage with real people, rather than the TV, Facebook etc. Whether people are retired, widowed, unemployed, new to the area etc - it can be very easy to find themselves isolated in this day and age. With the help of some very kind people - we will be launching the Friendly Music Cafe, at St Benet's Hall, Horning on Tuesday 7th April, 11am - 2pm. Everyone is welcome. There will be some live acoustic music from myself and Sally, Johnnie Walker and Hayley Hogarth - but also, plenty of time to chat, drink tea, eat cake and enjoy other peoples company. Please help spread the word, especially if you know someone who would benefit from getting out and being with people. Thanks, Richard
