Let’s Go Fly a Kite
Why not use today for a bit of Blue Sky Thinking?
“What is this?”, you might ask. Well, it’s all about brainstorming with no limits. Keeping an open mind and exploring the ideas of others too. Feeling that freedom of thought, and being creative without having any constraints or letting bias or preconceptions get in the way.
Time to say goodbye to the high part of the hedge that wraps around one end of the Vardre Deganwy green, as height-lowering work starts on Monday. The telegraph pole braces itself for a few days of noise and disturbance. Hopefully the birds will all soon find affordable housing elsewhere.
We apologise in advance to the neighbours and hope they bear with us whilst the work is underway. Our maintenance team has worked very hard over the years to keep the hedge trimmed but it is now beyond easy maintenance levels so, if you hear a very loud sigh of relief, you know where it will be coming from.

Shan: Tommy, if a man saw his sister fall into a well, why could he not rescue her?
Tommy: Go on Shan, why not?
Shan: Because he could not be a brother and assist her too.

Say it Again
Eddie shares a few quotes with us:
- “I don’t have a photograph, but you can have my footprints. They’re upstairs in my socks”. (Groucho Marx from the Film “A Night at the Opera”).
- “Are you going to come quietly or do I have to use earplugs?” (Spike Milligan from “The Great Mustard and Cress Shortage”).
- “I used to play football in my youth. Then my eyes went bad. That’s why I became a referee.” (Morecambe and Wise).
On a Roll with a Valentine Bowl
Even a pair of bowls looks forward to Valentine’s Day. Enjoy your day too.
My Cup Runneth Over
Ian offers to fill the Hornby Cup with champagne so that everyone can have a drink whilst Mary reflects the thoughts of everyone present at this offer. After all, we all know that no alcohol is allowed on the premises!
