Re: FORGOTTEN CORNERS

A handy public drinking fountain on the far end as well. When I asked about the possibility of putting Queen Victoria's Jubilee fountain back to its original usage, i.e. as a drinking fountain. I was immediately shut down for suggesting such a stupid thing by members of the LibDem Council. Apparentl...

Re: POLITICS CORNER

In the small local forest that is Town Council politics there is an interesting development with a bit of a mystery. I mentioned earlier that 10 electors of Coates ward had written to trigger an election to fill the vacancy on the Town Council. When Sally handed in her nomination papers she asked to...

BBC Radio is the same today also, all programs rescheduled. No jolly music at all when we woke to the radio this morning.

I think from all the breakdowns I have heard that the odds for the young (those under 30), so worst case scenario is 1 in 250,000. What makes a refreshing change is that the odds get better as you get older. They also get a lot better if you have not had any serious reaction to the first dose. Roll ...
