New A140 roundabout near TasburghOn the A140 just south of Tasburgh there's a new roundabout for B1527 and the B1135 though on Sunday the exit to the east bound B1527 wasn't open.  This is the second new roundabout on the A140 north of Diss since Lady KRJ graduated from UEA but justified from our one experience of joining the A140 from the B1135.

Art in the Barn at Easton Farm ParkOne of the contradictions of the art world is that private views rarely are private.  Art Dog with some honesty have called theirs a launch party tomorrow evening at Easton Farm Park.  Work from Suffolk artists and further afield ... even Norfolk.

Diss Emporium - antiques - vintage - collectablesDo you remember Alan and Henri landlords of the Framlingham Castle Inn around 2011?  Henri moonlighted as a belly dancer?  Stumbled across them from a roadside notice on the way to Norwich, since last year they've been the Diss Emporium.

Zombie Evacuation in Hockwold cum WiltonAt today's Zombie Evacuation in Hockwold cum Wilton (it's near Lakenheath) Nursie and Gingham Girl had clearly been street muggers in a previous life.  As always good fun, unlike last year it didn't rain and perhaps the baby zombie was the scariest of all.  Back again about the same time next year and a charity colour run is being planned for next April.

Red Mecca at Stradisphere this year♫ Stuff to do around near the coast this weekend includes tonight a music quiz at the Framlingham Crown, the free Laxitude all weekend with Lyrical Jukebox and naughty Harleston boys Red Mecca playing tonight plus Maritime Woodbridge tomorrow and Sunday.

Dance police at Hackney Carnival 2014Suffolk Police have removed their YouTube lip sync vid (something to do with Tim Passmore?) but the Norfolk cops vid is still there .. coppers dancing is a bit like a politician trying to tell a joke.

Preparation for The Framlingham Flyers' 10kWe were planning to visit the Burston Strike School rally today but got distracted by the Framlingham Flyers' 10k.  Some 400 entrants, loads of marshals and helpers, selection race for Suffolk County, the smallest and youngest water person we've yet seen and we heard that the course record was broken, probably by this bloke.  It'll have to be Burston next year then ...

fr 31 Aug

2012 Black and White Charity Dance♫ Pleasant memories of the late Outlaws at the Park Hotel Diss in 2012 though we did walk out of the wrong door and had to go all the way round to get back in.  Tonight at the hotel it's Elton John and George Michael ... reckon that'll be tribute acts then.
