My village is full of idiots, otherwise I might go to the pub more. You're lucky, Alan

Sadly, near me, all are 'manager-run' and owned by chains. Out back, there's a stack of microwaves.

Our once, Rose & Crown now trips over itself to find another crevice for new hessian sacks marked 'Flour' (in case you didn't know). And becomes the 'Feather & Ironing-Board'. ie it's just another facile confection. Aforesaid, the freely admitted, old duffers are gone. To be replaced by faux-old.

Tragic.

Saddest thing I've seen here lately: Local farmer we knew, dead and gone, his farmhouse bulldozed, along with others, the farms become sprawling housing estate, his face now ignominiously pasted up on a display board by the local 'history group' Everything good will soon be history.

[Under my breath] Unfortunately, you've been all too accurate.

See something decent, get some pointless committee to put up a plaque to commemorate having trashed it.
