I don't think coarse fishing is as popular as it once was. Round here there used to be coachloads of fishermen at weekends taking part in competions along the Trent. Now you just see a few solitary figures. I don't know if they still use maggots, I've caught fish easily with bread balls years ago.

I've just checked and find that you can buy maggots online in various colours for next day delivery!

I've read that the guy who came up with coloured maggets made himself a millionaire... after he retired from business and was already a very rich man. Some poeple just a have a talent for making money...

I heard it was always referred to as a "Maggot Farm" Jonab. Used to stink awful when we (were on patrol at the water sports centre.(the farm that is, not us).

As an aside, we once had a fella rushed to the rangers asking if anyone had a camera. When asked why, he told us his mate had caught a 26lb pike and he wanted proof before releasing it. He was fishing in the finger ponds at the back of the ski lagoon. We went down there with camera and my mate took about four photos and the bloke asked if he could buy the film, (no digital then) my mate said it was a new film and he'd only taken about six photos and when they were developed, he would send the bloke his shots.... The angler offered him £25.for the film. My mate snapped his hand off. The film only cost about two quid.

) then passing through Santa Margherita where the film " The secret of Santa Margherita" was made starring Anthony Quinn.

 

 We have so many villages round here with Saints names including where we live but it wasn't Santa Margherita the other day it was Santa Vittoria. Where the film the secret of Santa Vittoria was made.

Margie the smell from the factory where we passed is apparently famous for its products including products used in cosmetics ( :Shock:) and industries. It's called Italgel if you want to look, but maybe not!!

On the BBC they were driving them on the road between the tram tracks. Are there any cycle tracks in the city?

Just checked...

 

'As part of the response to Covid-19, the Department for Transport (DfT) has made changes that allow these e-scooters to be used on public roads, using the same road space as cyclists. These changes only apply to DfT-approved schemes. It is still illegal to ride any other e-scooter on public roads'

 

They're based at both universities and in the city center. Who's gonna push them all the way to Castle Blvd just to have a go...

 

They should ask Budapest how it's done, they have hundreds of 'em.

Yesterday was a bit of a pain?  

I have lived in Jacksdale 10 years now (well someone has to)  and since being here I have always taken my car to our local Gararge. unlless car was under warranty. Well as far i as know Paul and his dad owned the garage Paul machanic  and his dad used to do the paper work. The customer service was excellent.  Well car due for a service and MOT. booked in but found out that Pauls farther had passed away, and now there was another machanic and not sure but i think the other guys is Tony who does admin. To cut a long story short car passed, picked up the car to go shopping and we, had no heat or fan working. Phoned up garage spoke to Tony he was very rudel and saying more or less well we did not do anything all we did was a intrim service.  I did say, "I'm not saying it is your fault "but car was ok when i took it in, Passed phone to master  again got words same, any way took car back to be looked at, when I got there "Tony"said  I told your hubby on the phone not to bring it down till 5 30  it was only 4 55. Then he was going on again that it was not there fault, i was not saying it was!!  all I was  saying is that the fan ect was working when i brought it in. any way after a few more words which are not worth repeating, I left the car, phone call from Tony cars ready to be picked up. I was upset being spoke to like Tony had spoken to me, so master went to pick car up. Well this Tony said all sorts to master but the worst thing was he accused us of wanting our car done for nothing,,, and more words,   Any way i would not recomend this place which is in a unit on Pye Hill Road Jacksdale. A long standing frenship with Paul as come to an end.

Mary did Paul and his dad used to be on David lane basford.?. it sounds like the same set up, dad paper work and Paul mechanic. I ask because mum always took her car there as it was recommended by a friend and she was always pleased with them and nothing was too much trouble for them.

My day which is just beginning. I usually have breakfast with NS but this morning I looked at FB and saw a photo that I thought to put on NS . It's the exact view that we have from the end of our road. I will try to post it with iPad but it doesn't always work out.

In the meantime I'm having some toast with a salted caramel and hazelnuts spread. During this mini lockdown my daughter is making and selling jars of various things from sauces for pasta, chutneys, salted caramel, lemon curd and bagna cauda etc. If you have FB you may have seen them. She's brilliant she never follows any given recipe , it's all her own and she comes up with some unusual things. Sorry got to go more toast is ready, think she'll have to bring me some more SC&H spread back.

Mary, If he treats all of his customers with such disrespect, he will one day get his comeuppance (I hope). It may come in a slow steady loss of customers, and he may not realise what is happening until it is too late. His own fault.thumbsdown

My day started with a labour of love and two hours chained to the cooker, fulfilling my gorgeous Granddaughters request of  'Can we have some Scotch Eggs, please Nannar'.  So by the time I had finished cooking two each for all my nearest and dearest, I made a total of 14 in all! Mmmm. Probably take as long again to put the kitchen back to normal.

 

What the rest of the day holds, I have no idea. Probably, full of 'Spot the difference....Sudoku ....Crosswords....Arrowwords....Wordsearch.....Jigsaws.....Oh my goodness....You would think I would be in Mensa' ? NOT.:rotfl:
