Spring Is Here!
Not only is the general greening-up and indication that Spring has arrived, but the fact is also indicated by the increase in RAF jet-fighters zooming low, particularly over rural Wales.
At least, I think it’s the RAF . . .
A friend, having watched a couple of these roaring monsters skip the hilltops, said: “I wonder how the folk who live in Buckingham Palace cope with this low-flying noise . . . ?”
I think it was a rhetorical question.
Saving A Landmark
Up in Denbighshire, the restoration of an historical local building is gradually getting sorted.
It’s an old “mental asylum” which is in a bad state of decay. It’s owned by the County Council via a Compulsory Purchase Order. And they’re eventually going to be in the hands of a newly-formed Trust which will get the work done.
It is a good thing to have buildings such as this to remind us of our past and how things were done back then, in this case in Victorian times. For records show that these asylums were often little more than prisons to stop people with mental-illnesses being seen in the community. Because Queen Victoria’s Britain was a place of perfection . . .
The proposed M4 Relief Road – a rather necessary thing – will cost just over a billion pounds. Thought you’d like to know that. Perhaps we can have a whip-round.
Yet we were assured by our First Minister not so long ago that it would cost nowhere near that.
Well, politicians get it wrong sometimes, don’t they?
