    Time To Comment!

    The whole National Park "Thing" is up for and under review. But with the political turmoil? Who knows? I have been told this review was very much a Gove inititive.

    Without a bone fida name and e-mail an online survey could not be considered valid. I shall certainly complete the survey.

    The View From Work This Morning

    Yes, I am very lucky with my position. Had the house nearly 12 years now and quite a few other buyers were in the running so I offered the asking price. Also I had exchanged contracts so it was ours.

    Being retired I am looking out the conservatory window as I have a bit of a tidy up! Was a mizzley horrid morning earlier in North Norfolk but lovely now, think I will have a walk over the fields.

    Rip John Wilson

    If you have not read his autobiography it is worth picking up a used copy off Amazon or the like. It is a really good read.

    Totally agree about those at the top of the hill at Belaugh. The trouble with riverside properties is many weeks of zero privacy. We had friends who had the most beautiful home with boathouse just downstream of Marlow they moved after two years.

    I don't know for certain why the bees are there, but Melborne is quite famous for it's rooftop honey. I very much doubt they would go anything like that height though. A decent wind and it would be next stop Tasmania.

    My Day

    Had a good walk at Felbrigg this morning. The woods were stunning reminded me of the Beech Woods of The Chilterns. Still I will be down there soon for a driven day.

    I took these from the 322 metre skydeck at the 88th floor of The Eureka Tower, Melbourne, it is the highest in the Southern Hemisphere. If you look carefully at the second photo you can see a "Rowing Eight" on The Yarra River.

    Think it will be bad overnight, but day looks set fair. Have a great day.

    Game Shooting - Documentory

    A memorable day for me yesterday as well. For a number of reasons I decided to cancel my order for the camo version of the new Winchester SX4 that I placed at the Game Fair and run with a standard composite. It was delivered to my chosen RFD yesterday. Can't wait for the 17th. Doing the Canadas before changing guns for the normal driven day. It has a 3.5 inch chamber so a lot of bang for your buck.

    I watched the Nat West Tower go up as I was based in Bethnal Green Road. Then some years later I watched the Central Tower at Canary Wharf go up as I was then with "The Red Propeller" in Silvertown.

    A regular for Judith and I was : set off from Broadsedge at Stalham and cruise to Boundary Farm moorings at Thurne Mouth. We would then do one of two circular walks and return to the boat to cook dinner. Dinner complete we would return to Broadsedge often on Nav Lights in Autumn. Once the boat was sorted, jump in the car, back home in 20mins. Confession......Also In the car would be all our dinner plates, pans etc to go in the dishwasher at home!
