  1. In my experience stay well away from any leasehold property, no matter whether there is 800 years left on the lease.
  2. Anybody remember the Whetstone on Cumberland Way?
  3. I wandered lonely as a cloud Two metres from the madding crowd When all at once my name was called To enter Tesco’s hallowed hall. This was the pensioners’ special hour. I’d gone to get a bag of flour. But I forgot, when through the door, What I had gone to Tesco for. The Tesco staff are extra kind. I told them it had slipped my mind. They asked what else I had forgot They clearly thought I’d lost the plot. I phoned my wife again to ask. She reminded me of this special task: “I need some flour to bake a cake with all that cream you made me take.” “Yes I recall” I had to lie. I dared not ask what flower to buy But then I saw them next the tills a bunch of golden daffodils!
  4. Brilliant!! Couldn't they let them run up a tab and pay at the end, ha, ha!!!
  5. A casualty of these times I'm afraid. We are losing 2 well established pubs in Minehead. The free trade I reckon will pull through, but the pub co establishments have had ongoing rent, business rates etc to pay since March!
  6. And so it begins! Just to let you know these phone calls are going round. ‘Good morning, I'm calling from the NHS track and trace service. According to our system, you are likely to have been in close proximity to someone who has tested postive for COVID-19. This means that you now need to self-isolate for 7 days and take a COVID-19 test.' 'OK. Can you tell me who that person was?' 'I'm not able to tell you that. That is confidential information.' 'Right. Um... so ....' 'But you do need to be tested within the next 72 hours. So can I just get the best mailing address so that we can send a kit to you?' 'Ok (gives address)' 'Thank you - and I just need to take a payment card so that we can finalise this and send the kit to you.' 'Sorry - a payment card? I though this was all free?' 'No - I'm afraid not. There is a one-off fee of £50 for the kit, and test results. Could you read off the long card number for me, please, when you're ready.' 'No - that's not right. This is part of the NHS so there's no charge.' 'I'm afraid there is. Can you give me the card number please - this is very important, and there are penalties for not complying.' Puts phone down. This is how scammers work. And vulnerable people will fall for it. Don't fall for it...! COPY and PASTE
  7. I fear this is just the start of it, it will take years to recover from this. What we knew as 'normal' has gone forever, we need to adapt to a 'new normal' whatever that transpires to be.
  8. Fracking tests at the top of Marsh Lane? Just a thought?
  9. My reg plate is WK65 xxx. Registered in Truro, but i live in Somerset. Where the car orginated is not necessarily where is at present. I don't remember KW on the pre 2000 plates being Sheffield, I thought it was Hull? YL to YU is Sheffield SA to SY is Scotland https://www.newreg.co.uk/dvla-number-plate-identifiers/
  10. It is quite possible that that plate belonged the Henry Spencer Estate agents. When I worked for them they had several vehicle plates starting with HS. Just a thought?
  11. You get many people who do a good Ice Cream, Taggy's was very, very good, I remember it well. When I lived in Sheffield we used to have Ronksleys, with their free wrapper lollys, ha, ha. Where I live now we have Styles of Rodhuish on Exmoor, https://www.stylesicecream.co.uk/ their Whortleberry (Bilberry) and clotted cream is awesome, mmmm!! Kelly's of Cornwall I think have become too much commercialised, just my opinion, but still very good ice cream. Always remember ... cream first on a Somerset/Devon Cream Tea, dairy on first, jam on top; Cornwall, jam first ... ooooh how wrong is that?
  12. 'Quote from post above ... my experience I have found visiting Southerners at bus stops won't smile or pass the time of day with you because they think you are going to knife them, or are a nutter. (Because of the experience they have of the atmosphere in London and the South) Unbelievable nonsense. I live in the south and people are forthcoming if in social situations. You really have to get over this xenophobic attitude. If you hate us so much why is the west country thronged with northern people throughout the summer, just stay away if you feel that way. Get off to Cleethorpes, Skegness, Bridlington etc
