Suffolk Punches at the 2007 Framlingham Horse ShowThe Suffolk Punch was (may be is) one third of the Suffolk Trinity (with red poll cattle and black faced sheep) but as a breed it's severely under threat with just 72 mares in the UK.  A positive sign for this gorgeously coloured and historically important breed is using a new sex sorted sperm method a filly colt has been born in Whitchurch Shropshire.

Suffolk Roller Deby skater Dr Astrid CoxonIn a lifetime of laughter and tears we have noted that most people like what they're used to and that usually means clichéd predictability so when the Blue Thunder Rollers renamed themselves we were impressed they resisted Suffolk Punchers or such like.  Recently Suffolk Roller Derby skater Dr Astrid Coxon has revived the draught horse allusion.

Suffolk Myth 85:  Good afternoon and who let you in? is another popular Suffolk greeting.

American Independence Day

Lucy Sampson one half of Honey and the Bear♫ Today Saturday 4 July is US Independence Day but more importantly your local pub should re-open.  Let's hope bottled beer hasn't reprogrammed your taste buds and you have to relearn draught.  This afternoon you could use up those bottles while Maverick virtually festival on that there Facepack.  We'll be looking out for rocker Terra Lightfoot and local Honey and the Bear.

Framlingham Co-op ice bucketSuffolk, or at least Co-ops near the coast, have rediscovered the ice bucket challenge.   Yesterday in front of a few socially distanced onlookers a very good handful of Framlingham Co-op staff were cheerfully dunked by their co-workers.  If we'd paid more attention we would know which charity benefitted but we do know Wickham Market Co-op have been challenged to do the same thing.

East Anglian Covid-19 infections No new confirmed Covid-19 cases in Suffolk yesterday.  A new map effectively showing infection as percentage of population and Suffolk doing no better than the rest of East Anglia.  The thirty seventh reason to be cheerful ... go on, judge us. ♫

Recall our space exclamations rant?  Radio 3 presenter Petroc Trelawney is doing it.  The spaces between words show where the words start and end though this doesn't necessarily apply to Suffolk roadside signs FOR SALE  Bare Roothedging.  A full stop/exclamation shows where a sentence ends and by placing a space before it you're confusing things ... but we wouldn't break social distancing to argue this.

Yesterday 42 confirmed cases of Covid-19 in Suffolk, a rate of increase less than nationally.  A fifth reason to be cheerful (seemingly Norwegian funk is a thing, who would have thought?) ♫.
