FTP on the Long Mynd

Two weekends ago FTP took us to stay at the excellent Long Mynd Hotel, Church Stretton. The Long Mynd must be one of the most beautiful areas of England, but few seem to know of its existence. A great area for walking, etc., and one of our favorite places.

I'm sure I will manage to write a about some of the things we did soon, but in the meantime....

12/12/12 ~ End Of The World ~ Not Quite...

On the 12/12/12 (last Wednesday) several people at work suggested that this was the Mayan end of the World date.

Fortunately, it wasn't but.....


Bedford Station was closed due to a bomb hoax........and I was late home from work!

Corby Candle Renewed

A few months ago I posted that the Corby Candle public house, in Corby was being re-developed, and that the old sign was being hidden by PVC cladding. In October I took a picture of the new pub sign, because it draws from the the old:


I did not post because I thought that I would pop in and have a look at the new pub. I did today. They have a big sign saying they serve coffee and Free WiFi. The coffee is cheap 85p, but instant, and the Free WiFi is not working yet!
