Asbestos saga proves our feeble press watchdog has no bark and no bite
It took a seven-month battle to get the Daily Mail to correct Christopher Booker’s dangerous claims about asbestos. Guest post by Richard Wilson
It has been superb entertainment here in Brean Sands and the weather today has held out as it is so sunny and warm for the organiser’s of this great event.
I have been to Western markets and seen wonderful costumes for sale and cowboy boots of every size.
A wedding was held at the church by us which we missed but there is to be another tomorrow which I hope to take some pictures off.
I have been to line dancing lesson’s so that I can take part in the evening celebrations as the bands are live music and we can dance our socks off.
We are nearly at the end of a great holiday as Wednesday we have to travel home to get ready for the British Lung Foundations Conferance a Hotel in London and I havent prepared my speech yet.
At last a signal on my dongle –horay!!!!
This Site in Brean Sands has been the worst place for a signal and we are all so frustrated trying.
We have been to Shepton Mallet Motorhome Show and spent LOTS of money but it was a good show and we managed not to buy a new motorhome he!he!
We then travelled through Wells and Chedder to arrive at Brean Sands last Tuesday.
We came here last year just before I went into Chemo so it is great to come back and relax this time but our friends have been running us around in their car and we have been to Weston and even played Bingo there where I waited over 6 mins for number 30 with a prize of £1700 nearly in my grasp.
Hey ho it wasnt to be.
Today we have been to a huge market in Chedder and there were a few bargans to be had.
Then a trip into Burnham on Sea for a wonderful lunch.
The entertainment has been great in the Beachcomber Club here and the other night we were treated to a Amy Winhouse act who then did a Lady Ga Ga act that was out of this world —-what a great night.
Last night was an act Total Madness and that was head banging!!! but great to.
We are going into a week of Country and Western here in Brean where the whole town becomes one big Western Show so more fun ahead.
At the Canterbury C&CC site this unusual Caravan arrived.
The man has converted a plane into a caravan where he slept in it and sat there to.
No Bathroom though–no room
A conversion what a shock as it came in and was placed on a pitch by its owner
He had taken the wings off and it doesn’t fly anymore and he loved converting it as he loved all the attention it got.
He has little curtains and dear little folding seats. I was full of questions poor man as he had only arrived but I just couldn’t believe my eyes.
The site Warden said so long as a vehicle has curtains he doesn’t mind what comes in but he will always use his discretion.
Ray was very impressed with the car a Citroën double axle and very long which he went out in during the day and left the plane on site like it was on a runway just waiting to take off–then you realise– no wings
We have just got back after a lovely long weekend at Caravan and Camping Site.It’s great to be able to camp so close to home and meet friends as we have done this weekend.
Sharon has 10 dogs in all but as 2 are Jack Russell’s and one a mixture all the others are Bedlingtons which she shows and she was here to Judge in Maidstone on Sunday.
Her friend had 2 as well so all 12 dogs came out of the RV to great me which was very surreal as they all looked the same and was just a mass of dogs.
They are so sweet We have found lots of good walks in the area and also Pear Orchards were next door where we picked up the drops and were able to eat them.
The evenings have been great and we had a meal together and which was very enjoyable as Lise cooked the meal and I cooked the mixed summer fruit Crumble and then we girls had Pimm’s which sent us off to bed very nicely.
Louis has had lots of good runs off lead so he is a happy worn out little doggy–bless!!!
I have been fairly pain free except for the old knees while walking and the usual Lung pains which I now can live with.
I have an appointment in November to see the Oncologist for the 3 monthly check up so in the mean time I can play. ha!ha!
Well I’m now getting ready to go to Shepton Motorhome Show on Friday–I do hope the rain stops and clears away for that.
