Bury Saints v Sussex ThunderWe knew the NFL had changed the rules about overtime but were very confused when they were needed Sunday near Thetford.  It took nearly an hour but as a playoff there couldn't be a draw.  In the end the Sussex Thunder couldn't get in for two points to match the Bury Saints who progressed to the final and will meet Bristol Apache near Leicester this Saturday.

Ipswich Cardinals v Bury SaintsReckon when we saw the Ipswich Cardinals play the Wembley Stallions last month Ipswich were outnumbered two to one.  Yesterday when Ipswich played Bury St Edmunds Saints reckon it was three to one.

Norfolk Brawds open co-ed scrimmageDespite a good handful of skaters bailing out of yesterday's Norfolk Brawds/East Anglo Smacksons open roller derby scrimmage in the end there were more than enough and what must have been most satisfying for everyone involved the Ipswich Cardinals had their first win of the season.

After decades of watching American football on tv saw our first live match Sunday.Ipswich Cardinals  Not surprisingly being outnumbered at least two to one the Ipswich Cardinals lost to the Wembley Stallions 19-44 but an honourable loss.  We were surprised how difficult it is to follow the ball at ground level and in this soccer obsessed country how hit and miss the kicking was.  We're looking forward to last match of the season against Bury (St Edmunds) Saints who reputedly are mostly US military.

Yesterday a man in Beccles was threatened with a gun and police advised ring 101 quoting ref ..., today reports of a man with a gun near Beccles and it's become ring 999 immediately.

Fencing in Bury St EdmundsAt last night's fencing club in Bury St Edmunds attendance was a little slim perhaps because it's the exam season but still four teenage starters and a good handful of the more experienced.  Fencing looks brilliant if a little anonymous because of the masks and even when attached to scoring cables moves about a lot more than we expected.  Judging by the red faces when masks removed also more physical than you might think ...

Election hustings at Wingfield BarnsWe attended our first election hustings yesterday, it was in the Wingfield Barns and organised by the Country Landowners Association.  There was pretty much one of each flavour candidate but only Labour's Jack Abbot and the Green's Rhodri Griffiths (he lives in Parham) standing in Central Suffolk.  To be honest we didn't stay long and during that time the audience neither booed or cheered but it was nice to see some election activity.

There are 122 parishes in Mid Suffolk and only nine will bother with an election this May.  Stradbroke looks particularly lively with 18 candidates for the 13 seats.  It's unclear what Stackton Tressel will do as they don't seem to come under either Central or Coastal Suffolk.  Stackton community leader Hamish McEdbanguh commented Sorry, I'm in a hurry.

Suffolk Constabulary101 is the police phone number for non-urgent calls.  We used it a little while back and the operator immediately connected us to the control room ... took the control room a while to answer though:)

From Tuesday the 101 service will have a press one now for type front end.

Hopkins HomesThe Vatican City has announced the excommunication vitandus of Hopkins Homes for engaging in joint commercial activities with Satan.  An excommunication vitandus barrs Catholics from dealing with the excommunicated which should slow the spread of Satanism within Suffolk.

English DemocratsLooks like the expected parties and all new faces (except for sitting MPs) in the constituencies Coastal and Central Suffolk this general election.  The only real bandit is Tony Holyoak standing as an English Democrat for Central Suffolk.  The English Democrats despite the name stand for Britishness apparently.

So far no SNP candidate but near the coast you never know ...

Look out, Miss, Lord Framlingham has arrived!It was generally agreed that Michael Lord MP for Central Suffolk was an excellent constituency MP but it would seem his subsequent ennoblement to Lord Framlingham has rather gone to his head.
