Ride out to take card to settle pool yesterday.
Went for lunch at 
The Folly 
I had a fish finger sarnie, haven't had one of those for years. 
Not as I expected, it was in a baguette with tartare sauce.
I had hoped for sliced white bread and tommy sauce !
Tasted nice though and most of the staff were friendly.

Getting toward pantomime time. Our towns intrepid thespians and a gaggle of kids put on a show.
This year it is Snow White. Well a version of it.
The story is rarely stuck to, where would be the fun in that.
Casting children as cannibals, pirates, ghosts etc , sell tickets.
Each child brings parents and or grandparents. More bums on seats and ticket sales.
My Flopsy is one of the seven dwarves, she has a hoody top with a logo on the back and a baseball cap with her character's name on.
As a proud and devoted grandad,  I am really looking forward to the show 

Flops in the attire
Somehow I don't think the hat will get worn after the show.

Delicious meal at the Black Pig last night.
I played host to the volunteers from our tourist information point.
It was a Christmas meal so Bryan had done us a festive menu including Turkey and pigs in blankets.
Very enjoyable evening and good company.

Sunday morning lie in and spend far too long reading Twitter posts, just read a long post by Google.
It is about the EU copyright directive.
If you have five minutes spare, I suggest you read it also.

Together for Copyright
The EU Copyright Directive may limit what you can find online. Let’s find a better way to update copyright rules in Europe.

I try not to get political on here, partially because I am not a party political person and partially because I think they are all a self serving bunch of duplicitous parasites.

So for god's sake please can someone tell that embarrassment for a prime minister to sod off !

I was privy to a conversation the other day, they were saying Kilometers were so much better than miles.
The gist was more along the lines of usage . Many running apps were calibrated in kms. 
I wouldnt know.
I dont run !

Schools today teach the metric system, Schools in my day taught the imperial system.
That is why I think in miles.
It is simply a unit of measure,  server cabinets are racked out in a "U".
That unit of measure is one and three quarter inches.
Just saying

I used to like twitter, it was fun, light hearted and limited to 140 charactors.
You needed to give some thought to what you wanted to say.
Witty, to the point, succinct,  I felt as if I had some new friends.

Things like friday friends where you could list the interesting accounts you had discovered and share them with your followers.

   NOW it has changed beyond recognition, 
 posts removed, users banned, and censorship .
what happened to freedom of speech ?

I am not forced to read your opinions nor you mine.
What with political and religious violence, both in word and deed, I think I shall ditch twitter and stay here. xQuiet

School holidays are coming to an end. 
Just a few more days then back to the school run. I take flopsy to a school that takes 9 minutes to get to. 
I get 9 minutes uninterupted conversation with her, 
We talk about all sorts of things.
The other day we spoke of cancer and she asked me why was cancer invented.

I said it is parts of your body growing wrongly, the onlynthing I could think of in the time allowed.

She replied, Like your lungs growing a beard.
