Rowing on Thorpeness mere in the 1920sWe like Thorpeness and its mere but haven't visited for some time.  We've had a drink in the social club on the corner and enjoyed the village hallness of it, even in places the slight smell of damp evoking past village halls.  The club is long closed but we heard at Christmas the cricket pavilion might have a pub night.

Georgian Coffee House - pic contributedDisappointing charity DVD shopping in Woodbridge the other week not helped by the Salvation Army shop gone.  Tragically the Georgian Coffee House has closed, perhaps not helped by a car crashing in to it earlier in the year.

Warm up at Suffolk Roller Derby scrimmageSkaters were a little thin at last night's Suffolk Roller Derby open scrimmage in Inspire Ipswich but it was still rewarding with newbie NSOs (Non Skating Officials) learning in the penalty box and a very youthful seed being cast.  Girlfriend and boyfriend playing on opposing teams was an interesting situation and disappointingly what used to be automatic for SRD training and scrims no after beer.

Kent University cheerleaders stuntingHeartbreaking for UEA Pirates last Sunday in the quarter final playoffs away against the season undefeated Kent Falcons in Canterbury.  No score in the first half and as we've noted in uni football before no field goal attempts.  Third quarter UEA got in for a touchdown but the kick after was blocked.  Fourth quarter UEA returned an interception for a touchdown but heartbreakingly had ... more here
