Barton & Tredworth Wikipedia

What it says on the tin. This is the Wikipedia entry for Barton & Tredworth, currently:


Barton and Tredworth is an area of Gloucester, Gloucestershire, England that lies just outside the Eastgate of the city and has a population of over 3,000.[citation needed] Up to 45 different communities live in the area and as many as 50 languages are spoken here.[citation needed]'


Pretty much a blank canvas, still, waiting to be filled in with lavish, loving brushstrokes. So who's up for it?

Come on in, the blogosphere is lovely...

I'm posting this entry to combine testing with letting anyone reading this know that I've found the setting that lets all members create blog articles. I registered under the name 'Joe K' before realising that I automatically had the name 'Webmaster', so I am currently both existing members (I also had a short conversation with myself to test the PM system - working just fine).


Nothing else to add, so I'll just address a topical issue after the big freeze, and maybe just before the next one, with cracks already appearing in the road. The details for reporting potholes are Freephone No: 08000 514 514, and  Email: [email protected]


Of course, Fixmystreet.com might be a better option, because they relay reports to the relevant authorities, and keep a record of how long it takes to make repairs.

Insert 'snow/no' pun here

Current conditions are treacherous. Appalling weather too, with temperatures of minus 5 degrees, and snow affecting most minor roads, and even major roads in the Forest. A busy couple of weeks ahead, with theTredworth Resident's Association's monthly meeting at the Golden Heart on February 2nd, followed by the BTNP meeting on the 20th. Doesn't seem so busy? Well, I might have got one or two facts wrong, and needed to edit. Still, small mercies...

  

I've added a few links to the website, namely the Tredworth Residents' Association, and St. James' Church. If anyone has any other websites they'd like to recommend, my door is always open. There's also a new message board forum, 'Local Events'. How this works, for the net nervous, is that you register with the site, with a screen-name (your name or a pseudonym, whatever floats your vote), and an email address (ideally, your own, or completing the registration process might be problematical), and when you sign in, you can create a thread and fill in the details of the event. Then I, and other members (it could happen) can make comments, clarifications and suggestions, which could improve the success of the event. I'm not seeing a downside, anyway.

 

So, 'til the marching season...

Here's an urban legend:


This is based on an actual radio conversation between a U.S. Navy

aircraft carrier (U.S.S. Abraham Lincoln) and Canadian authorities

off the coast of Newfoundland in October, 1995. (The radio

conversation was released by the Chief of Naval Operations on

10/10/95 authorized by the Freedom of Information Act.)


Canadians:  Please divert your course 15 degrees to the South to

avoid collision.


Americans:  Recommend you divert your course 15 degrees to the

North to avoid a collision.


Canadians:  Negative.  You will have to divert your course 15

degrees to the South to avoid a collision.


Americans:  This is the Captain of a US Navy ship.  I say again,

divert YOUR course.


Canadians:  No, I say again, you divert YOUR course.


Americans:  THIS IS THE AIRCRAFT CARRIER USS LINCOLN, THE SECOND

LARGEST SHIP IN THE UNITED STATES' ATLANTIC FLEET.  WE ARE

ACCOMPANIED BY THREE  DESTROYERS, THREE CRUISERS AND NUMEROUS

SUPPORT  VESSELS.  I DEMAND THAT YOU CHANGE YOUR COURSE 15  DEGREES

NORTH--I SAY AGAIN, THAT'S ONE FIVE DEGREES NORTH--OR

COUNTER-MEASURES WILL BE UNDERTAKEN TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF THIS SHIP.


Canadians:  This is a lighthouse.  Your call.
