I am one thousand five hundred years old!

I can remember when he was just 500 years old, then 700 years old when the old series ended.
900 years old in the new series and now 2,000 years old.
If he was 500 years old when I was a child and he is now 2,000 years old, then I am 1,500 years plus!
And I don't feel a day older than one hundred and eighty!

Grenwich has moved.

Has Grenwich moved?
I have just noticed on Google maps that The Royal Observatory Greenwich is at longitude -0.000506 and not 0.0.
The prime meridian is a few feet east at Blackheath Avenue !
Go to

Safety railings removed in Haywards Heath, why and what do you think?

Safety railings removed in South Road, Haywards Heath.
Why and what do you think?
Is it now safer?

Predestine crossing at south end of South Road also turned off.
Is it now safer. What do you think?

The railings would not only stop predestines and small children walking in to the road but also cars mounting the pavement.

How long before a major accident?
The railings where removed between 24/03/2014 and 28/03/2014.

Stop press:

I have just read that removing the safety railings will cost about £9,300∙00p

If Scotland leaves the UK.

The UK will no longer be a United Kingdom but a separated or split kingdom.
So we will be called the SK.
Scotland will be known as the Scottish Kingdom or SK for short.
If we remove the Scottish part of the flag then a number of other flags will also be affected.

The United Kingdom flag is made up from the English, Scottish and Welsh flags.


The UK flag is in the top corner of the following country flags:
So will all the following flags have to change?
 British Antarctic Territory,
 British Indian Ocean Territory,
 British Virgin Islands,
  Cayman Islands,
  Cocos Islands,
  Cook Islands,
  Falkland Islands, 
  Heard & McDonald Islands, 
  New Zealand, 
  Pitcairn Islands,
  South Georgia & South Sandwich Islands,
  St. Helena & Dependencies, 
  Tristan da Cunha,
  Turks & Caicos Islands,
... ..
Please post your ideas of how the new UK flag should look like.

Overflowing reservoirs in drought.

My local reservoir is overflowing with water.
My town has been fitted with water meters over the last few months.
(Got my water meter two weeks ago)
And there is a house pipe ban?
Mind you, if the hosepipe ban has ended then they will never tell you.
The only time you know there is no ban is when they say that a new ban is about to start.
