England`s Patron Saint

Apparently it was St George`s day last week we were meant to celebrate a bloke who killed an endangered species

I don`t think so.

'Trip Advisor review


Somehow I doubt if this is true,but worth sharing anyway.
Not my pic.

'Trip Advisor review: Deserted Cabin, Tennessee – 1 night's stay 31/10/1981
(ashboomstick81)

Having booked in for an overnight stay we were appalled by the lack of facilities waiting for us – no TV or radio or other basic entertainments, and only one book which turned out to be this gross orange thing written in some foreign language or something. Plus some crazy dude had already read the book and left a tape there for us of him reading it! Also, terrible neighbourhood as immediately after we played the tape the cabin was attacked by strange people dressed as demons! We fled through the forest only to be set upon by a bunch of rednecks hiding in the forest who tried to make out that the 'trees' were attacking us. All in all the worst place we've ever stayed in. Great views though. (1 out of 5).'

Why You Should Have A Plan.

You go to the trouble of having decking built around a tree.

Then get the tree cut down!

Warner Bros. Harry Potter Studio Tour Visit 14-02-17

“Never write anything on line when, drunk, tired or angry” (That`s why I waited 6 weeks to write this)
At the Harry Potter Studio.
This had been on my to-do list for ages, so whilst we were `down south` babysitting our grandchildren for half term, on a `free day` we went.
All I can say is that I was Disappointed

At the Harry Potter Studio.
It did what it said on the tin. A tour of a film studio, sharing behind the scenes, props and setting of the Harry Potter films in a cold, clinical way with no love, passion or feeling. If you, like me were hoping for magic, forget it. Instead go to your local Goth Club on an average night.

Here are some pictures I took.

Funeral Wishes 2. Over This Land.


Because the likelihood of been able to have a Viking longboat funeral at Whitby is less then nil, I have a plan `B`
Ribblehead Viaduct
One of my favourite parts of the Yorkshire Dales is Ribblehead and the famous Settle to Carlisle railway viaduct there, so I would now like my ashes scattering from off it, whilst The Mission`s record Wasteland is been played.

This has already been mentioned to a DJ friend of mine who said he was up for playing the music, all I need now is someone to do the scattering, oh and stop the train! I think it is a £200 fine if you pull the cord to make an unauthorised stop, so I thought that I might as well ask if I could get permission no doubt at a cost.
Ribblehead Viaduct and Me.
I emailed Northern Rail, the train company that runs that line. Thus;

Dear Northern Rail

Please could you tell me what it would cost to legally stop a train for about 5 minutes on the Ribblehead Viaduct to facilitate the scattering of my ashes?

P.S. I am not planning on dyeing anytime soon.

Thank you.

Alastair




Hi Alastair, unfortunately this is not a service we can offer. We also cannot authorise the scattering of ashes on the train tracks as we do not own them, this is the remit of @networkrail May I ask, does it need to be the Ribblehead Viaduct, or is it a train line in general? The reason I ask is I know the heritage railways, which are private train tracks sometime offer this service on their lines, so it may be worth contacting them? I hope this helps

Ribblehead Viaduct
So it will have to be done illegally then!
Many older Punks will remember when The Sex Pistols were arrested for playing God Save The Queen on a boat on the River Thames in 1977 on the Queen`s Silver Jubilee. That can never be repeated, but getting arrested for stopping a train to spread a mates ashes must come close? Any volunteers
