    Interesting Margaret.

    Canals are still dredged though. I sat and watched our local one done during the summer. What I did notice though, was that they loaded the dredged material into a barge and...

    I think the problem is still lurking, it's just not as prevalent.

    Just got back from Tesco. It was absolutely packed. Christmas shopping/Brexit stockpiling?

    The road back from the local pub was dry, much to my surprise. That said, I did find the walk back rather chilly.

    I use Royal Mail as little as possible these days. Not only is it expensive, I also find it unreliable. In fact, I find it so unreliable that any important transactions I use it for I send by...

    This will come back and bite them on the ar$e. The motorist is fed up with being the cash cow and the poor relation.

    I think the visuals make that.

    I like light classical music and brass bands. I'm not crazy about piano music but quite enjoy it as background in a pub/hotel bar.

    I find Facebook largely a waste of time for anything apart from my direct interests. UK media rarely tell the whole story and most have an agenda of their own.

    Likely cannabis of some variant. I often smell it when walking the dog. The police could have a field day with drugged up motorists round here if they had the resource.

    I must disagree with your source, Margaret. Boris's deal is certainly not what I understood I was voting for, and I believe it to be worse than May's deal.

    One of big problems is that it is so...

    I had a lovely small 'clam' style of phone. It was ideal for slipping into my pocket: I never did manage to get it unocked.

    Thankfully, I don't need a mobile these days.

    Nearly got knocked over coming out of the pub earlier! Bl**dy cyclist doing a great rate of knots on the pavement.

    The air turned blue and he b*ggered off a bit sharpish.

    Bristol to ban diesels

    Many of us in the know wondered what the hell the government was doing encouraging diesels in the first place. If I'd bought a diesel, I think I'd be a little miffed at present developments.

    Our local Post Office is exactly the same. It's down to money. Many Post Offices simply can't pay their way these days, so they're slotted in wherever is cheap.
