Our devlopment team had been contracted to produce a multi purpose humanoid. After two years of contradictory ammendments to the specifications and requests to make the impossible possible. a prototype was built,the designer took early retirement and the plans were filed under the title of "Brexit"

Another one I have unearthed....Do you remember when there was a discussion about the proposal to build a Motel on the South side of the High Street and the problem of car parking was raised....johnjohn had a solution !

These past two weeks have seen a lot of activity in Connaught Avenue.The gas supply metal pipework has been made redundant and used as conduit  by inserting smaller gauge yellow plastic tubing through it.
This has involved digging lots of holes in the road mostly one for each pair of houses,the loose earth is sucked out via a very large vacuum tube and then followed by a mobile dispenser of yellow tubing.
To speed up the operation and reduce the amount of plant required our development team has produced a prototype for evaluation

Had a leaflet from the council yesterday about the stopping of weekly household rubbish collections....I am still trying to work out how this helps us to meet the national recycling target ?

Another note from the council that was hooked onto the wheely bin handle informed us that 'to protect the environment' 'reduce waste' and' recycle more' household waste rubbish, would not be collected weekly. I guess that on alternate weeks it will mean joining the queue of cars outside the tip on the A259 or non car owners taking to the bus holding a smelly cargo.
To avert thse johnjohn has suggested that the council provide a local legal fly tipping site to avoid desperate DIY ers from sourcing their own !

As the annual 5th of November bonfire celebrations has been stopped together with the weekly household waste collection it was mooted that combustable household waste could be collected at the recreation ground to provide the annual spectacle... some crusty Extinction Rebellion eco warriors protested but were over ruled ....whats a little more dioxin and furan in Shoreham's atmosphere when compared to the savings generated by a weekly rubbish collection ?
