Framlingham ChillifestToday's 2nd annual chilli eating contest on Framlingham's Tuesday market was a little like an old school wedding night, it didn't last long but by the copious milk being drunk and uncomfortable expressions it hadn't been an easy ride for anyone.  A proper journalist would have taken names but we're not that sort of website, looking forward to next year's Chillifest though.

Albus Dumbledore lunched at the Framlingham  Station yesterday.  Sir Michael told Mike the landlord/chef how he looked like Tom Jones and Mike the landlord/chef told Sir Michael that indeed Sir Tom is a relative ... well you have to keep the punters happy.

Fish  1972-2011Yesterday at the Seven Hills crematorium Nacton near Ipswich the hall was very well filled for the humanist funeral of our Framlingham  chum Fish.  Many mourners had followed the suggested dress of purple and gorgeous shoes and of Fish's many Internet friends some had travelled from South Wales and Scotland to attend.  We are missing and will miss him.  The order of service is on the board.

After some 60 years the Framlingham police station in Badingham Road hasThe old police cell closed and moved just down the road into the back of the Saxmundham Road fire station where the police now have a warmer and larger office.  The old station may not be Precinct 13 but it does have a forlorn air and though the single cell was latterly only used as a locker room it's still slightly scary.

Ex MP for Central Suffolk Sir Michael Lord has taken his seat in the Lords as Lord Framlingham, that should upset the people who think they already are.

Remember slightly mad (aren't they all?) and definitely surreal Scottish comedian Phil Kaye?  He had a Channel 4 tv series in the 90s and more recently (perhaps Dave type more recently) was on QI?  Well he was sucking up Gosia's coffee in Framlingham this afternoon ... he didn't have to pay and display ... not yet ...
