    Is this site a balanced mix of opinions?

    I'm generally considered to be a harmless eccentric by my acquaintances. Freind's and family just think I'm weird.

    Harleys are like scooters, ok unless you want to do anything difficult, like stop, or go round corners (I see the downvote button making a return here)

    The good news is that there's no bad news. The bad news is that's all the good news there is.

    Beautiful Old Buildings

    The arches are fairly straightforward, you build them over a wooden former, the become self supporting when the former is removed and the higher the load the stronger they get (up to the point of material failure. The hard parts are the supporting pillars, stopping them buckling or spreading is quite difficult. Most cheat by having a cast iron centre pillar doing the hard work with a fascia of brickwork for the aesthetics.

    ASA bans gender ads in UK

    Hopefully this means the end of all the pretentious purfume ads they delight in showing at this time of year.

    The Wilsons

    I could be that they're technically broke and their lenders are pressuring them to sell up. This could just be a face saving exercise.

    The Wilsons

    They are of course assuming that their houses will sell quickly, a few months of voids on 300 houses will make their accountant suicidal.

    Council debt madness

    The horses were in the paddock down the road, the fire was caused by the gas burner being used by the guys re-roofing the stable block.

    Council debt madness

    Before they became popular a local councillor had speed bumps installed on the road he lived on to prevent it being used as a rat run. All his neighbours complained that they were too high but he had a range rover so didn't care. One day his stables went on fire and the fire engines all got grounded on the humps, by the time they freed the engines the fire had spread to his house which then burnt down. Karma?
