Stick holder not getting out of the wayStanding on the sideline in Red Lodge watching american football with a Bury Saint either side of us.  A closely pursued running back approached and we were gratified that the players either side started to move before us, we'd always felt a bit soppy running away:)  Having seen this we will now start running sooner.

Sunday a charity fair in the Hasketon Victory Hall, a quid to get in but that does include refreshments.

Hyde Park Renegades v Black WidowsSaturday in Norwich was women's flag american football Opal series round four.  Hosted by the Iceni Spears we were very pleased to see their numbers have grown to offence and defence plus players over but not GB defensive end Victoria Ware as she'd injured her ankle playing netball.  In contrast the Hyde Park Renegades (in white) had the just the minimal five and were devastating.

We shall be visiting ArtDog London this weekend at the Campsea Ashe Station House partly because we've been told the venue's makeover is impressive.

Sherlock Holmes & The Warlock of WhitechapelOur first Eastern Angles show was Sherlock Holmes & The Mummy's Tomb.  It was written by Julian Harries so hardly plagiarism that Common Ground's Christmas show this year is Sherlock Holmes & The Warlock of Whitechapel.

Sporting Fram has become sporty Fram, there is reason.

Heartening that there were so many people in the St Michael's Framlingham churchyard yesterday for Remembrance Sunday.

Don't know if it's Brexit or the approach or perhaps arrival of winter but house sales around near the coast seem slow.

Life Skills 26:  We first drank a Rombouts drip coffee at the charming Geffrye Museum in East London; it came with a matching cup and biscuit instantlyDouble coffee drippers besotting us.  As the popularity spread inexperienced staff (which seemed to be most of them) would overfill the dripper leaving the drinker to deal with an overflowing cup.  We bought our first drippers certainly for decades and found them sadly gutless, using two improved the situation a bit.
