Apropos of absolutely nothing that has gone before our local Co-Op store (the larger of the two in the village) has had a recycling section for glass, cardboard, clothes and whatever in a part of the car park next to the store's fenced off delivery area. Must have been there at least 25 years, possibly longer - perhaps 30 years.


This week I noticed that the recycling containers had all been removed and a rather posh wood and black frame sort of log cabin/portakabin office style building had appeared complete with steps/disabled access construction to access the door. The land is not entirely level there so the whole thing is raised above car park tarmac level.


Today I noticed one of those outside advertising poster stand things had been pplaced next to the steps.


If I read the poster correctly (at a distance and assuming it was something related to the new building) it was telling us what the construction was for.


The new location for the Co-Op Funeral Home.


So in effect the planning permission for the recycling area probably still applies ...




The world seems a little stranger to me every day.

That could well be true Gerard.



However at a Donington test session today I certainly did not feel that I was outnumbered by young people. That suggests to me that probably half the drivers and not a few of the owners and preparers would also be too old for the game but have yet to notice.

Whilst visting Arras Hospital last week I happened to notice the destination board on a departing bus. It was heading for another medical establishment - via the cemetery!

Seemed to me that was in the wrong order...

Ah! But, John. Why bother the medicos needlessly?

Fortunately, Bob, I don't! Having kept clear of doctors more or less since I left school I've got to the point I'd rather not go in case they find something wrong.

I was thinking more of the bus passing the boneyard before the hospital, than your own ox like constitution John!

Let's hope that the new venture is not sharing fridges with the Supermarket!

As for recycling, I think i am right in saying that replacement hips etc are made of titanium - after cremation the metal left is recovered and sent to Holland, I believe, to be recycled in to more replacement hips.

True. Especially now that all the fridges have doors on them. The curved sliding ones do seem especially difficult to see into due to reflections from the ceiling lights. There could be anything inside and for some of them you would know what until the door is open.

That's a bit too exciting even for a birthday celebration isn't it Peter?


I assume said bar was not in the UK?
