Bradders, Cats and SCG, thanks for your comments about my `long lost friend'. As communication was difficult I gave him my email address so that he could write and we could swap stories. When I hear from him I hope to find out more about what he's been up to (I think he did some growing of unusual crops on the farm, as well as science in his kitchen) and I'll ask about the bands that he plays in.

Thomo, surely you don't expect today's journalists to go to the trouble of checking the location of a company? Especially when it's not in a city.

Peter
Your post brought back a memory of when I was in hospital. The guy in the next bed had throat cancer so he had an etch a sketch to write down what he wanted to communicate. He would write it down then would clear it off. The number of people who would then take the sketch off him and write the reply was incredible.
He had made a board that he kept under his pillow saying "I'm not Bl**dy Deaf.

Thomo. Silentnight have a branch there.

Re Iphones. Heard on The News Quiz today during a ciscussion of Iphones: Sandi Toksvig; "My Iphone tracks me and records all my movements". Is it just me or is this really quite a funny quote?

Heard on QI last night that you can download a John Cleese voice-over for your sat-nav with him in full Fawlty Towers mode.  Alan Davies said he put it on the sat nav in his car but never let his wife know. I'll bet she got a shock!

I hear that the Pope's easter homily is that anyone that believes we are the product of random evolution can't lead a full life. Really? At the same time his Vatican police force were evicting Roma refugees from the church of St Paul in the Vatican City. They had taken refuge there after being evicted from a temporary camp. Pilgrims started a protest, Roma let back in the church. Perhaps some members of the church are more equal than others?

Latest translation of the bible in the US changes "virgin Mary" to something like "young woman" saying that this is closer to the original.  The Vatican is not happy.  We now have a pregnant young woman instead of a virgin birth.

I was attracted by this ;-

"Seek happiness, not prosperity, archbishop urges
BBC News - ‎17 minutes ago‎
The Archbishop of Canterbury has said in his Easter sermon that corporate prosperity without fulfilment is an "empty thing"."
 
There speaks the voice of experience!

Just watched a program onj CBC about the sexual abuse in the catholic church..what caught my attention was the fact that a class action suit won $18.5 million...now the Vatican denies any responsibility, the local bishop says he is not an employee of the Vatican... so local parishes have to raise the money..there are 9 church properties uo for sale..does this mean that the local, abused folks are getting scr---- twice?  If Rome refuses to accept financial responsibility for their priests then maybe it is time for parishes to breaki with Rome.

What about celestial arbitration ??

 

Edit:-      Or for that matter celestial castration?

The skies have been full of hot air balloons, yesterday evening and again this morning. Does anyone know where they are taking off from? They seem to be coming from the Colne or Foulridge direction.

Frank, My friend was using a similar board, write on it then wipe with his hand, no mark left on his hand. Very useful. I can understand that it might be easy to fall into the trap of writing a reply! Perhaps that's why my friend was trying to talk to me even though I couldn't understand more than perhaps one word in a sentence - he has probably found that it prevents people assuming everything has to be written. I feel very sorry for him because he's highly intelligent and has always been an eloquent and sociable character with a lot to say and knowledge about many things even all those years ago. His brain must be overflowing with stuff to communicate and I guess that's why he finds music helpful, a way of expressing himself in sound.

I was attracted to this :-

http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2011/apr/24/london-olympics-pollution-fine-ioc

Which in turn drew my memory to the difficulty that Tony had  differentiating between fact and fiction (and still has), and the way  pledges and promises were seen as non-binding ephemera (and still are by most of the political leeches).

Herb, each RC diocese is an independent financial entity and the Bishop is the legal title holder. A friend of mine who is a priest told me this twenty years ago and forecast the high pay-outs for child abuse.

Catty, aspirations are fine but no substitute for effective action on clear policies. In modern political spin they are used frequently to give a handy loophole. Re. pollution, the lid has been kept on this one for years and the biggest culprit now is probably diesel particulates. One of my favourite 'hidden' pollutants is the rubber worn off tyres. Where does it all go?

I did a bit of research myself Belle, and found that there was a training weekend based at the Stonetrough Hotel near Kelbrook. Balloon pilots were taking their exams, and flights were taking place from a nearby field.
