My Town Monday - Just like a London Bus.

There is a saying in England that you can wait ages for a bus and then two come along at the same time. Well those of you that read my MTM posts might feel a bit of deja vue now.
Last week I reported that after around ten years without a swimming pool that a major super market had put in a planning application for a supermarket and a swimming pool, the cynic in me believes that the pool was a sweetener to get planning permission for the shop.

Anyway guess what?? this week we have news of a second planning application for the land on the opposite side of the road to the original application, this is from the YMCA who plan to build a centre for young people (We already have a YMCA but as its popular it would make sense to enlarge the provision) They envisage a sports centre and a swimming pool!!! So as I said if you wait long enough without one, two will come along at once!!! (I bet neither will actually materialise, we are not bought that easily!!)

you really can't go wrong with Stephen King. Haven't read The Stand though, but will read it now. Thanks for the suggestion.

The UK huh? Home to two of my favorite actors, Rik Mayall and Adrian Edmondson. Loved Bottom and the Young Ones.

and good luck with the pool :)

Your children never cause you a moment of worry? Are you sure they are human? Lol.

We have the same problem here with bridges. Needing one to finish a highway, they decided to build two. And 10 years later, neither is built. I did meet an Arab Londoner and his Scottish wife here though, he's a consultant on the bridges which are yet not built.

WOW - what a dilema. I wonder which one will get the planning position. Large congolmerate or charity linked company ?!?!?
