I had been looking forward to back-to-back pub quizzes this week.  Tomorrow there is a charity quiz at work, and tonight I was expecting the monthly quiz at Broadbridge Heath Village Centre, but it was not to be.

Walkies

March 22nd, 2009 · Comments Off on Walkies · Life

Having got up fairly early (for a Sunday), got the dinner ready and bubbling away, and mowed both front and back lawns I decided to go and take my cameras for a walk. For a change I went to the Leechpool and Owlbeech woods. The place is supposed to have lots of nature, and sure […]

Cash for questions

January 27th, 2009 · Comments Off on Cash for questions · Life

After a couple of disappointing months, Horsham Labour party were back on top in the village quiz tonight, boosting the coffers by fifty quid.  That should pay for a few leaflets. Talking of quizzes, I really felt for Exeter in yesterday’s University Challenge with their haul of a mere 15 points.  I only watched the […]

Go West

November 17th, 2008 · Comments Off on Go West · Politics

Forget the North-South divide: down here in Sussex we are suffering from an East-West divide.  According to the Politics Show every council in East Sussex has signed up for the government’s free swimming for the over 60s scheme.  The programme is contrasting that with Kent, where 8 out of 13 councils have opted out, with […]
