    • Well, hello there CP. Hope things are okay mate.
      Makes my day when someone tells me a blog made them laugh. That’s my aim in life nowadays, to make people laugh! Thanks, Sir.
      They ankle-snappers last year, had a paddling pool, a much bigger false beach, a paddling pool, and free rides. Not this year though, but there is a restaurant and bar replaced the rides. (First things first, Haha!) Poor little mites!
      I had a right mess of Accifauxpa and Whoopsiedangleplop when I got up this morning. Just writing them down, with an amusing aspect for today’s diary.
      Taketh care, and not too much water with it, Hehehe! Cheers.

  1. Great photo tour. On this side of the pond, if you really want to know what a government agency, or regulation does, or a company like google is really all about, you take their name or motto and reverse it. Like our “Affordable Health Care Act” is anything but affordable. Most people’s insurance premiums tripled or quadrupled after the law went into effect. The really good, affordable health insurance policy I had for 13 years was made illegal, because it was good and affordable. Our Conservancy District conserves nothing, but attempts to destroy all wildlife habitats in the bosque along the Rio Grande. Googles motto is “Do no evil”, yest google engages in so much evil. After all that, should you reverse the “Community Protection” on the back of the imitation policeman?

  2. Life can be so irksome, pain-in-the-neckish, full of inequality, infuriating and exasperating. As I read your words, so many things triggered my frustrations suffered, too, Tim.
    I must try the reversing names in a search.
    I used to be prescribes Aludrox SA for Duodenal Donald. Fantastic medicine. But they took it off the NHS listings because of the high price and put me on ordinary Aludrox. Nowhere as affective, the that disappeared. Now, this Peptac is of little use. But it might be of a preventative nature. investigated if I could order Aludrox SA at the chemist, years ago now. They could get it but at £20 a 100mg bottle! Now the chemist tells me, they have stopped importing it to the UK altogether anyway.
    I did read in a magazine, that the insurers in the USA, can legally change the insurance cover band and not tell the client – until they make a claim which is not covered!
    Now wonder dissatisfaction is rife.?
    Oh, I waffled again, sorry mate.
