NEWS From Over The FENCE

Some people will remember the days when women stayed at home to work - and men didn't.

Men leant on their shovels putting the world to right, chewing the cud with other Men - and Women leant on the fence putting their Men to right, gossiping with other Women.

Well, men rarely work with shovels these days, but there is still news and gossip to be had over the fence.  And it's available here on CONNECT.

99yr Old Wins World Silver

The word “exercise” can be received by some people like the words “Brussel Sprouts”.  You can eat them - but not regularly thank you.  Well, for the younger ones, exercise can be like a drug and one which you just cannot get enough of. 

It’s like anything really.  When you become good at something you just keep wanting to do it.

So it is for Kenneth Judd.  Kenneth has become good at indoor cycling or rather static bike cycling – and he is VERY good at it.  So much so that he came 2nd in this year’s contest, competing against more than 5000 others.

You've Got A Friend In Me

I was delighted to read that Leighterton Primary School, just over the valley from Tetbury, runs a Buddies scheme.
The school’s version of mentoring is great - both for older children, who have to apply for the role of Buddy – and the younger children in their care. 

Leighterton Primary School are by no means the only school running such a scheme.  
This is all a far cry from the long-ago days when I was at school!  And in a good way.

Does This Get Up Your Nose?

I just can’t leave it alone.  It doesn’t matter how unpopular, inflammatory, or even uncool the subject is, I keep being drawn back to it like a moth to a flame.

Informed Consent is the subject.  Informed Consent, that is, to medical treatment.  This time, the nasal spray influenza vaccine.


Why am I banging on about Informed Consent again?  Because there’s an issue all parents need to be aware of before they allow their children to have the nasal spray flu vaccine.

Fawkes 3: Our Gov's On The Rails 

For as long as I can remember, we as a population have never been satisfied with our dotGov.  Well, perhaps I should qualify that statement, for there are times when we have backed our dotGov – such as in the days of the Falklands War.

In fact, wars are the very time when a dotGov feels the population is behind it.  In reality and looking back, it is only at these times.  That said it doesn’t work for every war.  Do you remember the Gulf War and all the opposition to it?

PM Blair had a smell about him and it wasn’t nice.  He still has it!
