In Chortleby Village Hall, deadly events were happening on Friday and Saturday night a body was found face down in a water tank and with a fright a body falls out of a cupboard. The bad deeds have been resolved and kudos to the DIVA team for unraveling the situation and bringing the villain to justice.
It was a play by Derek Webb called “Agatha Crusty” and the “Village Hall Murders” which took place at the Hondon de los Frailes, Theater, events close to Midsomer Murders but not quite. A great evening of entertainment by the group DIVA (Drama in the Valley Association) who all performed brilliantly, a very well done and entertaining evening enjoyed by all.
Just recently it was a fun time, as we spent a few days in Benidorm reuniting with the great-grandchildren who, with sparkling eyes and lively minds, enchanted us. We had to laugh when their grandmother pointed to a plane flying overhead and said “look at that plane” and the seven year old granddaughter stopped what she was doing and looking very serious said ‘Nah… it’s not a plane that’s a private jet.’ I guess she knows where she’s going in life.
The difference between Spanish and UK healthcare was demonstrated during our stay. In Spain we have excellent care and quick appointments. A hotel lady, severely paralyzed in a wheelchair and in need of constant attention, back home in the south of England, she cannot get an appointment to see a specialist until May 2023.
It seems to me that no matter how much money is invested in the NHS, there is very little improvement. While there is good news in that the UK government is taking action to stop the use of ‘wake-up type words’ like ‘birthing person’ instead of ‘mother’, also to end the amalgamation of restrooms, so once again there will be separate ‘male’ and ‘female’ establishments.
Set in the beautiful green Somerset countryside near Pilton, this ‘holy grail’ among music festivals, with its many stages and varied roster of performers, was recently watched by over two hundred and thirty thousand people for a long weekend.
This year, he was honored by the presence of octogenarian Paul McCartney. Also on stage was Diana Ross, who is seventy-eight, both singing old favorites from their previous careers. The crowd went wild imitating and following the famous song lyrics, which it seems will live on forever.
Greta Thunberg, that famous teenager, who is now nineteen, closed the event with one of her speeches of doom and disaster, and despite her words on global warming and waste, which were followed From applause and cheers of approval, very few words made sense to the audience.
The period has devolved and the site has become the biggest messy, messy, garbage and garbage scene. Scattered litter is mostly the ‘no’ ‘no’ of plastic, leaving a sour note and partly destroying Glastonbury’s very reason for existence.
The cleanup in 2019, the last time the event happened, we’re told, took six weeks to clean up trash that was all created by true music lovers…but not from their surroundings.
It’s hard to imagine 1.4 square miles of rubbish and rubbish, as this is the area covered by the celebrations, where the two hundred thousand tickets in total were sold out to eager festival-goers in a very short time, eager to attend this unique event. event and willing to part with hundreds of pounds of their money, but paying little attention to the ecosystem they needed to be involved in.
The organizers of this year’s festival have gone out of their way to encourage festival visitors to act responsibly in disposing of their waste. However, the visitors were deaf to this request but not to the music or other events. So there you have it, these young people who are the future of Brittany, can recognize a singer or a musician a hundred paces away, but not a trash can together.
It’s a sad true story of this week, and once again the failure of ‘Easy’ airline to meet the terms of a booking, making an excuse that there was no pilot available for the trip resulted in a family stranded in Luton and unable to make it to the funeral of a beloved mother in Alicante, Spain. A statement from one of the members “why do they overbook, take your money and leave you stranded?”
We had a similar, although not so devastating, event when we arranged to meet the family in Benidorm, on this occasion the “stress-free” airline of the same name from Bristol was late departing and used the excuse that the baggage handlers would not work loading the plane unless they were paid forty (£40) pounds an hour to do so. We don’t know how the impasse was resolved.
So, it seems from the daily news, more and more employed people are giving up tools requiring extraordinary sums of money to continue their way of working, driving up prices and rolling inflation in a continuous cycle of rise. The blame for this state of affairs lies firmly at the door of greed emanating from those who control the pricing of basic needs and those who demand excessive wage increases.
Fixed-income retirees are unable to do anything but tighten their belts and worry about the next peak of inflation. They just have to cope because hitting is out of the question. This would mean that the gardening is not done and the weeds would continue to grow and the dishes would pile up in the sink. Take care of yourself.
