  1. We don't have deliveries from Iceland ourselves, but many times I've seen them delivering around the Bedlington /Stakeford area. Our next door neighbour has deliveries from them.

    We do occasionally use their shops though and they have a nice range of goods. Great for party food. They even have lots of party food that they make sure cooks in the same time, so you're not waiting for any one thing.

    Meanwhile, somebody's filled in some potholes!

    Now there's a subject for debate! Forget bloody Brexshit! 

    They've sprayed around that many potholes it's going to be a case of Follow The Yellow Brick Road around Northumberland! They need to get the Munchkins to actually FILL them, not PAINT them.

    I have just conducted an experiment -- I offered the pup a choice between a brussels sprout and a roast pigs lug --he chose the latter - i examined both beforehand and although I do like a sprout, the pigs lug was def. more appealing to me

    Talking about pigs lugs, I wonder how the Bedlington Tesco's development is progressing?

  4. At what point do vegans consider slaughtering animals for food is a no-no?

    I often hear them moaning about the killing of animals such as chickens, sheep and cows, but strangely never hear them complaining about entire ecosystems of birds, bugs, and small mammals being destroyed when a farmer fetches in his grain crops to provide vegans with bread and seeds. 

    I love all animals and wouldn't hurt a fly, but would happily eat a vegan if stranded with one on a desert island!

  5. Fair enough, you might get the odd traveller or tourist taking an interest in Bedlington's historical past, or the quaint, tree-lined Front Street, but what about the people who live here? Where are all the leisure facilities for the entertainment of Bedlington's young kids? Where's all the affordable housing for Bedlington's up and coming homeowners? Where's the infrastructure (doctors, schools, shops) to support all the new arrivals on the rapidly developing, overpriced, posh new housing estates?  


    Oh! Silly me! I've just realised the answer to my own questions... 




    (or Cramlington, or Blyth,....... anywhere but Bedlington).

  6. I take your point about people not using local shops in favour of larger superstores. 

    Years ago I used to run a market stall. Ashington, Blyth, Cramlington, no problem, good sales all the time. Bedlington though? .......... nothing but a bunch of tight wads! No wonder the market collapsed in Bedlington.

    I'll have to fill up me Google Street View vehicle and do some more driving :D


    Make sure you have an alarm fitted and locking wheel nuts if you're taking that Google car for a spin around Blyth Eggy! :o

    ... you did indeed mention them earlier. I can't understand anybody allowing themselves to suffer in this day and age when there are so many creams and suppositories available costing less than a pint.

    Have you ever tried swallowing those suppository thingy-ma-jigs? I'd rather stuff them up my *rse!
