Good morning everyone
Only Sky can insult viewers intelligence to this extent. Will this bloody nonsense be on every day for the next 730 days? With Sky, the answer is "very likely"!
Which brings me to "Master Chef". I quite like this programme with the demonstrations of culinary expertise and skills from the amateur contestants. Very clever and who ever emerges as Master Chef at the end of each series it is usually a well deserved title. However, I have written to the producers and makers of this programme on numerous previous occasions, about the intrusive, loud and bloody annoying music which thumps on throughout the show and invariably results in the "mute" button being operated on our remote control leading to nearly half the programme being viewed in silence. The producers and programme makers have completely ignored my previous comments as the "music" thumps on for this series also and it is only week one!
It is reported that "UK nuclear decommissioning débâcle costs government nearly £100m".
My attention has been drawn to the story that the government intends to introduce plans to make us all healthier, by shrinking the size of chocolate bars. (This story appeared on the 30th March and is thus not an April Fool prank). Chocolate bars have been shrinking for years. If they shrink even more, we shall soon be buying only the wrappers!
lanning application to turn 22 self-catering flats into homes for the residential market have been submitted by the founder of Big Vern’s in St Ouen’s Bay.
(story at http://jerseyeveningpost.com/news/2017/03/28/plans-to-turn-22-holiday-flats-on-the-west-coast-into-homes/#BPaxyykKPhe3cwDi.99).
Grande Route des Mielles is overlooking St Ouen's Bay with views extending from L'Etacq to the north along the 5 miles of beach to Corbiere light house in the South. An even more stunning location for the remaining 9 one bedroom flats, is located at Corbiere Phare overlooking the headland and the Corbiere light house.
An uninterrupted view of the sea, the lighthouse, the birds and at the right times (frequently) the sun dropping into the sea as it sets in the west. These flats will be expensive if only for the locations and the views, particularly at Corbiere. Now, if I ever had enough money.
When I went to see Yarwood things were a little different as it was possible to have change from £5 when ordering a round of drinks consisting of brandy, whiskey, vodka and a packet of nuts (and a pint of Mary Anne, the proper stuff), and the measures were larger too! Ce'st la vie.
