I agree with the Chief Constable, not in the spirit of staying at home if you get in the car to drive somewhere to get your exercise. Walk around the block, it might not be so pretty but it's the right thing to do

It's definitely in Devon, I have family members (not in Dawlish) who have it and I think I may have had it myself - but mildly. So that puts it in Dawlish too.

I remember the years that some councillors were extremely proud of the fact that they didn't increase the precept year upon year. But they did keep up with pay increases for the staff, and the cost of any services they paid for increased and any materials they bought increased so effectively each year they could do less with the money they had. There should be a small increase each ...

Just to be clear for anyone else reading this - best before end is a guide used by manufacturers to tell you when the flavour of the food may start to deteriorate (all still edible) Whereas a use by date is when the food should be eaten because it will go off and may lead to food poisoning.  But eyes and nose are the best guide for that and a day or two after may not matter.

Never seen Life of Brian, not a fan of Monty Python except for the odd sketch - was probably too young at the time of their peak to really understand the appeal.

1263 - I have a sense of humour, a very dark one at times (and I have had to develop that due to having seen some truly horrible things in the past), a silly one when with small children, a slightly weird one when with a particular friend who shares it. I don't find jokes about stoning women funny, I'm allowed to not find jokes about killing people in barbaric form funny, the same way I ...
