I was disappointed to hear that my favourite gift's shop Su Heart is going to close in June. Shop rental costs on Bridge Street has defeated them. If we get another damned charity shop I'll spit in someone's eye! As if that weren't enough, the council has gone and put up parking charges to 60p/hour but to include the hour between 5 and 6 when a lot of working people drop into Morrison's or Mark's' Well they'll most probably go t0 ASDA instead where the parking is FREE. And the new arcade? Wye aye! I shop in Laura Ashley all the time, mun! Divvint ye?
Su is going to be making her jewelry to sell on-line though so when she sets up, I'll add her to my friends. Good luck Su!

New poem

Locus of Control at The Pygmy Giant

We worship commerce it seems like we used to worship volcanos. We worship what we fear. What we really fear is losing the locus of control. What we should recognise is that we never had it to begin with.
