One SuffolkIf memory serves about the time PM Tony Blaire's vision for the information superhighway was to dole out rubbish computers in Framlingham the website One Suffolk arrived.  An unlikely partnership between Suffolk's constabulary, county and district councils it provided free websites for community organisations, small business and parish councils,  From next month Community Action Suffolk will be the new provider and they will charge for the service.

Very young starter at Colchester GladiatorsSix hours of British American football at Colchester Rugby Club Sunday.  A very rewarding tuck stall, a scoreboard (we do find it hard keeping up with the score especially when it's not clear whether a point after at the other end was good or not) and half time entertainment from twirlers carrying as many injuries as a roller derby league.  Hosts Colchester Gladiator's defence started strongly but the very short handed team faded to a 40-00 whitewash from the Bury Saints.  In the second game Kent Exiles came from behind for a 28-14 win over Herts Cheetahs.  Enjoyed it all and thankfully no overtime.

The weekend before last we saw Bury Saints beat Solent Thrashers 19-6 atBury Saint 19-06 Solent Thrashers home.  A scrappy match that in the spirit of Shakespeare's anniversary might be described as a Comedy of Errors.  For us the most surprising moment was when the visiting defensive coach was warned for unsportsmanlike conduct because one of his hand signals to his own players could be interpreted as threatening (NFL Rules Section 3 Article 1b).  This Sunday the Saints play the Herts Cheetahs, free admission.

Vegetables and fruitWe have a friend who grew up in Armagh.  On a trip he and his father discovered that in Belfast fish and chips is served with fruit ... a slice of lemon.  In a similar manner we have come to terms with fish and chips served with vegetables but went to pieces when in Long Stratton we were offered mint sauce with our mushy peas.  We refused but next time we'll pluck up our courage and try.
