Village Of The Year

There's a new series of "Village of the Year" on Channel 4 which is made by Reef Television.
It's currently on Monday and Thursday at 3:00 pm and the programme next Thursday (25th) features Rowhedge in Essex, Findon in West Sussex, Coxheath in Kent. AND Redbourn in Hertfordshire - so you might want to take a look and see how we get on...?

Really Annoying

"One" of the things that really annoys me is establishments advertising free WiFi and then keeping the password a secret. It's really frustrating to have to go and ask for the password. Some places have a notice hidden away, some have a blackboard with the code written in tiny lettering but the best places have cards on the table - or on the menu for example - with the code boldly displayed.
Anyone else find this annoying?

Is This The Way To YAWELDIRB?

This is a really bad photo taken looking into the sun so you may have to click on it to enlarge it.
We have just completed a 6.6 mile walk and found the way to YAWELDIRB.
How can this have happened?
It's not come through from the other side of the sign - how can anyone have made the finger post, how can anyone have made the entire sign, how can anyone have installed it? Unbelievable, or is it?

Happy New Year to all my regular blog followers and to all those passers-by who call in from time to time and are very welcome indeed.
I've been retired for 9 years today. Don't think I'll be going back...

Well...It Makes Me Smile...

This makes me smile every morning when I get in the shower - nice to see someone has a sense of humour in the packaging design department!
It's a bottle of shampoo, in case it's not obvious.

The church porch has been turned into a wardrobe through which you enter...

All extremely clever and effective
