He must have been well into his eighties, not a bad age to go at. Can't say I was a fan of his TV programmes, but I didn't mind him on the radio. What was his radio programme, was it Brain of Britain?

Hi Froth why don't you just charge him rent.[Police Truncheon]
The chances of only having one Rat is a bit grim.

Phil your Photo entry on "the beach road" could it have been on the Isle of Wight, those cliffs in the background look very much like Sandown.

It's my own fault for leaving wild bird seed in there. I'm gonna get some rat poison today, or a shot gun

Yes it is Sandown, I later gave the location when John asked we were stopping in a hotel just up the road from there. I took these photos of the hotel and the pier which was just nearby. I suppose I could have entered one of those because it was tipping down at the time.

Iv'e just had a laugh, we are watching Dragons Den. some comedians have come up with a toilet tray for a dog. My wife said how do you get a dog to use it. I suggested putting a picture of Tony Blaire in it.

Had a fine afternoon out today, we popped over to see my uncle in Hollywood (the one by Wythall). We took a stroll over the road to a Fete at Wythall Park or Park Hall whatever it's called. It was quite good and well organised I have to say, but once again expensive. £2 for the kiddies rides on the fair.

Is it me but does anyone else think we are being ripped off for these rides. All I can say is that they must have to pay one hell of a fee to the organisers to justify those sort of prices.

Sadly Phil you need a lot of money to take kids on a good day out now.I feel sorry for parents on low incomes.

I have got to the point where I expect to be ripped off at some theme park or other, but I don't expect my wallet to be molested at some local charity event or fête.

The interesting thing about many of those rides is that they still run them without them being fully occupied.
So they have the same time, effort and power use for less than maximum income. I'm sure if they charged less they would run them full most of the time,
This would surely generate at least the same income for the same time, effort and power consumption, but at the same time a full ride generates more interest and excitement so therefore more continous demand.


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

Volty,

My thoughts exactly, I can't see the sense in operating a ride that is almost empty. Yesterdays fête was well supported and there quite a few there. When we reached the fairground the adult rides were doing reasonably well, but the grandchild we had with us went on all the rides he wanted to solo. There was only one other ride that had another child on at the same time. I think if the rides had been £1 a time they would have been full, I also noticed that because of the shortage of riders that the ride time was very short.
