Weather / Re: That was Winter that was

We saw more of West Australia in our 23 years going there than than most of our neighbours in W.A.  Must admit that at times when we'd been there for 3 months I used to wake up, look out of the window, and hope to see a cloud for a change.  I doubt that at our ages 80 & 82 we will go abroad even locally to Spain or anywhere else in the world, we have the money but not the interest.  We like to eat out, at lunchtime, about 4 times a week within about 30 miles of Middlesbrough.  Just ordered a new car for 1st March, current one is over 2.5 years old.

That's a shame, I know how you enjoyed it there. Do you have any plans to maybe winter away in Spain or somewhere closer to home in future?

No, in Middlesbrough, the house in West Australia was sold in December 2013, so no more visits at ages of 80 this year and 82 we've done enough trips there and back over 23 years. Just lots of memories and rellies and friends still out there.

Now we have the Metal Bridge road shut for 3 months for 'road widening' and DCC have had to shut the Sunderland Bridge to Hett road because they didn't previously think hard enough about where people would go to avoid Thinford and get to where they need to be.  :cry:

A chilly spell coming up, with a cold east wind and the prospect of a few snow flurries. Are you in Australia at the mo Lancelot?

Nice history there Lancelot.

No. JD Wetherspoon was founded by Tim Martin which has grown from its own brand attributes.

Wetherspoon’s branded outlets have individual names, with the name Wetherspoon prominently displayed.

With more than 900 pubs and 33,000 staff, JD Wetherspoon is one of the largest pub chains in the UK. Their very first pub opened in 1979 in Muswell Hill. Martin swapped the legal bar of his own and opened his first pub shortly after qualifying as a barrister. He was 24 then.

Mainly, I think that we should all sit back and see what happens rather than pre-judge.  He may be the best thing since sliced bread or even a total flop, but he was voted in, now let's wait and watch rather than take side.  It will all come out in the wash.
