Hi all Wave In many ways, it is my volunteer activities, over forty odd years or more, that have shaped me more than anything else in life. Even as we as a family are going through the mill a bit just now, I don't have to look back far to see folk in all kinds of situations & dilemmas. That I am sure helps me to see, over a situation, without being tunnel-blinded by it, as indeed so many are. In particular, those closest to the crisis. I do try to see right from wrong, but part of the understanding is just that, being able to understand. My days with Coventry Mind were a real eye-opener. That brought me into direct contact with every conceivable kind of life activity, including a murder. A big over six-foot man that murdered his less than five foot tiny wife, leaving her body in a layby out Nuneaton way. How do I come to terms with that, even though it was nearly twenty years ago? I was talking with the deceased only three days prior to her being murdered. Thankfully, most events were nothing as traumatic as that. The biggest challenge was recognising folk's innocent lifestyles, learning not to be judgmental, however odd to me an activity or lifestyle might have been. I tell you, of all the activities that I have seen, fifteen rugby players, dressed as little children, doing a set McDonalds party time, complete with the cakes, trifles & games, takes some beating. Good night all. Big grin

Hi Midland red, It was as if nothing had happened, just as good quality, but early days yet. Will have a full report after next Wednesday.

Hello Midland Red, The bacon butty at the Belgrade was ace, as usual. On the way home I sought permission to record this picture of an enthusiast, restoring motorcycles.

Brill is on the border of Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire, roughly halfway between Aylesbury and Oxford

Thanks MR, it looks a nice quiet little place, I wonder if it has a history of any strong significance, maybe a King passed through. Smile

Hi all Wave I promised my forumite friends that I would post a pic from my distant dark days of trafficking.
