Letter from Buckingham Palace
Envelope

At our hugely successful Music & Arts Festival last June, we introduced a Poetry Slam evening.

This with some trepidation as we  had no idea how it would shape up. In the event the Bridge Inn was packed to overflowing with a string of poets presenting their works before a very appreciative audience and an 'X-Factor ' style panel of judges. 

That night, one resident stepped forward, well in to her 70's — and presented a truly lovely number of her own creations. 

#Transcriber
As a result of that, I offered to help her in any way I could. The upshot of which is that I have become her own transcriber into typed work. All in all I have now helped with some 17 plus works.

But the most important one to her, was a letter I typed for her and addressed to Her Majesty The Queen and sent off to Buckingham Palace along with an offering of a Jubilee poem especially written for the occasion. 

#Reply
Months passed and now the reply is here. As per the images seen here.

Jessie, for it was she who is the poet, is absolutely delighted and all the correspondence is pride of place in her home. Especially the Envelope! 

A great story of the talents here in this wonderful village. Jessie, of course, will once more present her poems at our planned Poetry Slam next May at the 2013 Festival.

I have just received a call from a foreign sounding gentleman who claimed he was from BT Internet Openreach. I asked him to repeat where he was calling from so there was no misunderstanding and he very clearly claimed to be from BT and that he understood my broadband had some issues I wasn't aware of. Alarm bells rung at this point and I told him I would need him to answer a couple of...

Now listen up you Golden Oldies and Living Legends. Has it ever crossed your mind  how you would fair if confronted by having to take your driving test again? I'll bet it has and you have shuddered and dismissed the idea. Very natural and I am right with you. Except that I fell into the trap twice.   A few years ago (not many) I decided that it might be a good idea to...
