  1. Well I cant believe Andrew Mackay get so much. Amazing

  2. wow - putting all that in one place really does give a feel for what's going on!

  3. Yeah Oranjepan its quite busy round these parts at the moment. Infact its worth while for me too as it forces me to examine the events locally and allows this blog to at least mention the local events which many not of been covered. Hopfully local people will find this service useful.

  4. Looks like Andy and Jules cant manage on the trivialing amount they getting for doing SFA at the moment and are renting the flat that tax payers have been paying for for the last few years
