A walk on the sea's edge, not a brilliant sunset, the skies were too clear. 


Beautiful weather, calmish seas and sunny for the foreseeable future on the weather forecast. All I need is a new knee and I can enjoy it all.

Don't try this at home, its dangerous.

https://youtu.be/1g2FSwZQb1w 72-title-flat.jpg (615953 bytes) Glynneath Town Council are probably the most corrupt council in Wales and they are refusing to accept responsibility to challenge their parent authority Neath Port Talbot Council who have blatantly broken rules in relation to the Contaminated Land Strategy at the Heol y Glyn landfill site. The following video is a representation I made to ask a public question in relation to a SAR made about a Mike Pugh email chain.

31 August 2022 - Ronnie the Returning Hedgehog

This is Ronnie the Returning Hedgehog, so called because he is, I believe, one of the three hedgehogs that were born in my garden last year. He is one of three regular visitors to our garden this year.
