And makes me glad I gave up my pasty without a struggle last year when a full-grown adult dive-bombed me and mugged me in St Ives.
With the growing number of pasty shops in

One of the many human signposts popping up around
It can only be a matter of time before
And starts to charge and licence them.
Though I wonder what book he’s reading, and if it fits the sign!

I spotted an unusual uniform worn by a police officer who certainly didn’t have a West Country accent.
On closer inspection of his badge I realised why, it turned out he’s been seconded to Avon and

I was photographing the local election candidates with Francis Maude Chairman of the Conservative Party today.
When this friendly dog decided to leave her homeless owners, and run across Kingston Parade and leap at me placing her paws on my rock-hard six-pack.
All right it’s a lie, my soft fluffy duck down stuffed pillow of a paunch.
But we made friends afterwards.

He was a skilled artist and sign writer and helped us with many charity events.
I’m certain he will be greatly missed by the 200 people who attended his funeral today.
His shop Steve Vee Bransgrove Collectables on Catherine Hill in Frome was a treasure trove of all those thing you wished you had kept but didn’t.

This is Boo who despite his fearsome looks is one of the nicest chaps you could meet.
I photographed him once for the paper and they used him on the front page.
At conference David the Editor said “If he comes in the front office complaining I’m not going”.
I always feel he should be Queequeg sat on the deck of the Pequod in Moby Dick, not working as a builder converting a restaurant in

Usually it’s a struggle to find suitable children in the grounds, so to sure of getting a picture, my daughter Helen and her husband David brought my grandchildren.
Yes you guessed it for the first time there were suitable children already there, but after going to all the trouble I used my own Grandchildren.
Helen stands out of picture while Lottie and Helen run across the famous Palladian Ornamental Bridge one of only four in the world.

I notice that Hinkley Point Power Station in Somerset
now has permanent armed police guards.
Here are some old pictures of an
Emergency Exercise at Oldbury Power Station
This one was at Oldbury Power Station simulating an emergency at Berkeley Power Station.
The whole day was taken very seriously; senior staff and press officer were flown in by helicopter, as the roads would be blocked by traffic moving out of the area.
People were given questions to phone in on the emergency lines to keep the staff busy.
Wendy my wife had to phone in as the Princess Royal's lady-in-waiting asking if the horses at Gatcombe Park were safe!
They had regular press conferences with staff playing the part of the press asking yet more questions of the panel of police, station managers and scientists.
While the press officer stalked the stage making sure the senior police officer didn't do an Ian Blair.
The press officer was Terry Pratchett, who was already starting to be well-known as an author.
He had written Colour of Magic and it had been serialised in Woman's Hour.
These rare glimpses of Pterry at work have never been published.

Our old shop in the Abbey Church Yard, the Monkees magazine in the case seems to point to around 1967 three years before we married.
I see the comics include Valliant, and I wonder what the Corgi and Matchbox toys in the window would be worth now if we still had them in the boxes.
