  1. Empty tables, empty chairs. In their time they made a wonderful and constructive contribution to many and to their understanding and appreciation of the Broads and its political shenanigans. They are sadly missed. Andrew
  2. Thank you Mr P A concern. An uncertainty.
  3. Mr P That is an unbelievable sum of money. I'm serious. How can they justify that amount of money. What does it achieve? Mission Creep. In it's most sinister form. Have I been betrayed, am I being betrayed. I am and old codger, a curmudgeon , sometimes my befuddled mind is unable to identify that which is reasonable in this day and age. I don't need guidance from you guys I am too old for that. But what I do need is a reassurance that you will put in place a standard, disciplines, that protects the generation that will follow us and The Broads in particular from those who seek change to achieve a personal ambition. Andrew
  4. Deuce. BB to serve. Set match. .
  5. Now. Tell me pray. Who would you elect to be on this authority? The RSPB . Perhaps the Ramblers. Anglers . Boat yard owners. Would they agree with you. Who would you pick. Who would you trust. Tell me, who would YOU CHOOSE. It is working at the moment. There is a degree of transparency which holds the authority to account by virtue those who question their every move. Members of this forum. Long may it continue. Long may we continue to uphold our principles, our beliefs, our standards and our aspirations. Encourage thier criticism, thier dedication towards thier vision for the future they will leave behind for the next generation. Every year I visit different parts of the Broads. From Hickling to Horsey, Ranworth to Coltishall, Thorpe St Andrew to Beccles. Yes I see things to criticise but in general I see a well managed Broadland Park. Long may it continue and long may this forum continue to value our heritage and our members who embrace this principle which we protect with an undeniable passion..
  6. Carole May I join you with your sincere tribute to Iain. My comment was not meant in any way to infer any criticism whatsoever. I would be mortified if you in particular thought otherwise. Empty tables, empty chairs. Iain was a friend so many of us never met. Andrew.
  7. Carole. I have to say the forum has not been a poorer place without his presence. It has grown in strength beyond our imagination because of his contribution, his integrity, the standard he left behind for others to follow. Thankfully his influence has become a bench mark for other forums to follow, and our present administration is the leader in this respect. Others have fallen short. We must thank him and remember him for the legacy he left behind for us all.
  8. Your round Timbo " Is it" Never fails.......cheers mate.
  9. Yer right bor. They dunt know nuffin. But ther good old boys. Why they want to go sloshing about in the river this time of year give me the he be jeebies
  10. That you can an all. Did you know afore that bridge, goin down stream there is a gret old hole. The old wherry men did not put there quant down. Do they can't reach the bottom. Wot is down there. Some say that it int natural. Suffin is buried down there I tell yer. Old Wussername
  11. Old Shuck has been seen there many times by the locals. Few locals visit after dusk. I visited once looking for a wall. There is one. I feared. I feared for them holiday folk. I dare'nt sit on that wall. Not after dusk. Old Wussername
  12. I don't no why but I wanted to meet him so much. On his last visit to the Norfolk Broads I tried to follow him. But to no avail. I followed him by car from mooring to mooring. Finally to his home port. He was not well. I arrived at the boat yard...........but he had gone home. I had missed him by seconds. Andrew
  13. Good news MM It will not float. Think about it.
  14. I can let you have some Norfolk leaves mate, for that special effect!
  15. The Power of the Dog THERE is sorrow enough in the natural way From men and women to fill our day; And when we are certain of sorrow in store, Why do we always arrange for more? Brothers and sisters, I bid you beware Of giving your heart to a dog to tear. Buy a pup and your money will buy Love unflinching that cannot lie Perfect passion and worship fed By a kick in the ribs or a pat on the head. Nevertheless it is hardly fair To risk your heart for a dog to tear. When the fourteen years which Nature permits Are closing in asthma, or tumour, or fits, And the vet's unspoken prescription runs To lethal chambers or loaded guns, Then you will find - it's your own affair, - But ... you've given your heart to a dog to tear. When the body that lived at your single will, With its whimper of welcome, is stilled (how still!), When the spirit that answered your every mood Is gone - wherever it goes - for good, You will discover how much you care, And will give your heart to a dog to tear! We've sorrow enough in the natural way, When it comes to burying Christian clay. Our loves are not given, but only lent, At compound interest of cent per cent, Though it is not always the case, I believe, That the longer we've kept 'em, the more do we grieve; For, when debts are payable, right or wrong, A short-time loan is as bad as a long - So why in - Heaven (before we are there) Should we give our hearts to a dog to tear?
