GBH Ramps' Ops DirectorAn East African photographer visited the Framlingham skatepark yesterday and GBH Ramps' (who built the skatepark) Ops Director (herintheoffice) has registered on the board and our word she makes a lovely Christmas fairy.

PS: If you haven't got an Outlaws ticket then befriend a Con Club member as they are having a disco tonight.

PPS: Looks like the recent fog has disrupted flight control up there too otherwise why would there be an Herald Angel in Solar two days early!

Teachers from Debenham and Mr HanleyHefty sprinkling of teachers in the Station last night (even though the Jolabrugg isn't quite ready yet).  Large party from Debenham and a bunch of Tommy Mills musos (including the utterly committed Mr Hanley [see last year's Grease ... what happened this year?]) chilling after something or other at the school.  You've got till 7pm tonight to get the last two Outlaws tickets, we did our cards yesterday <smug smile>, and the Earl Soham Vic will be doing the bar at tonight's White Water Christmas Bash ...

It must be something in the water!  Not a word Thursday when we were snapping Daddy Christmas being put together and then this outbreak yesterday for Children in Need.  Pat won't have to change his outfit for tonight's Postman Nite at The Crab and Winkle where they were smoking something up this afternoon when we passed ...

A full monty wedding at St Michael's Saturday with a white Rolls Royce, gospel singers and a sea of hats.

We were told this morning that sufficient bungee sponsorship has come in to pay back The Crown's top up loan and more.  The first to get his sponsorship in was Duncan and those jumpers who haven't are advised to get their monies in before Roy sends Cilla round with a chair leg.

Mary and Vic looking very fitNone of the cash dispensers in Framlingham are working except the Post Office and Tony Martin won the Arts Framlingham quiz.

The tandem was in Badingham last night and returned today to where it started and with Vic and Mary Stanbrook still on board.  We make that some hours over 86 days and almost 4,000 miles.  There's nothing to say is there?About halfway through the fire

All that smoke is/was a strawstack fire near Shawsgate Vineyard.  Very impressive how the farm had sprung into action even before the brigade arrived, not so impressive the blue hatchback of bright young things hurtling through the smoke, what if there had been a fireman in the road hidden by the smoke?
