Good Morning y'all.

I give you fair warning that I am going to get my sunlouger out and sit in the garden shortly, this always makes it rain.
So if you want to see any sunshine get out there now before it's too late.


My time is money, I can lend you 10 minutes for lunch.

Morning all,well what a fantastic day yesterday.

Charles Hanson and David Barby were great fun,they spent most of the day with us,lots of filming and a lot of banter.They were great with the public and I was impressed with both of them.

Wonder who will win?It will be on TV in the Autumn,will let you know when it is on .

Quick turn around and off to the party.Lovely to see all those family faces,age has caught up with all of us.Danced the night away and all without a drink as I was driving LOL.

Oh by the way I sold my phone so not to worry about modernising it,the chap wanted it for decorative purposes.

The bells have just started so no peace for a bit here.

Morning all,

It looks like its going to be a good one, I'm off out later as we are being taken out for a meal once again. I suppose its one of the benefits of getting old, your family want to keep taking you places. I suppose its part of what is referred to as "your second childhood"

Well I had a nice day and the meal wasn't too bad, it's funny how the old services are disappearing fast. I had Steak Diane, but it came to the table ready prepared and wasn't completed tableside. I suppose its got something to do with health & safety or is it that they just can't be bothered anymore.

It was probably supplied frozen and cooked in a plastic bag and completed in the microwave

Great to hear Brighton is sunny......it is here too......fantastic yesterday.

The Robin is my all time favourite little bird,they were so tame on my Edgbaston Allotment they looked for food as I dug.I will never forget them.On my new Allotment I have a little Blackbird that is now happy to come and poke in the freshly dug soil while I sit just a few yards away.

We have a number of these in the Waggon, all bought from local car boots and fairs, a few from Brum and the black country.
Perhaps Mike could tell us where these two came from.

What a day it was, did anyone else have the plague of wasps?
They all seem to be males which is very odd, even the half dead one I have just stepped on barefoot in my bedroom.

Robins are for life not just for christmas.

Not many wasps here,in fact I have not seen many around this year.

Until yesterday i could have counted the number I have seen this year on one hand.
I have no idea where they came from, they weren't nest building, just eating and getting smacked on the head. They are all quite small as well, like we used to get before the big hornet type moved in.

J & H Brookes in 1899 were listed in their main listing as a metallic bedstead makers at Grove ;Lane Smethwick., but they are also listed as fireproof safe makers. The 1890 map shows it as a Safe & Bedstead works in the corner of Unett St.
John & Joseph Taunton (I thought it was Job , not Joseph at first) were in the same trade in Sherbourne Road. The c 1913 map shows the works
Taunton’s also list their main activity in Kellys as being a metallic bedstead manufacturer ( and later also a metal mattress manufacturer).. They, however (up to 1913 at least, make no mention of safes, so it must have been a fairly minor activity.
I have seen lots of metallic bedstead makers listed in Brum . I wonder how many also made safes.
