In recent times we have heard much discussion about questionable journalism. Sensationalist stories in poor taste however, are nothing new - one of the earliest British tabloids was the Illustrated Police News.
I was doing some research on London borough coats of arms and found this nice image of Wood Green's:

Whenever I try to pull up to a space to pop into a local shop it infuriates me that parking meters dominate the area, I got an £80 fine because I did not buy a ticket to pop into the dry cleaners near bounds green tube, seemingly even if I had of popped in Sisley ? Cafe for a coffee, I would not have be fined, as the parking outside those shops are private that but does not apply to the dry cleaner!
Having 30 mins or even 15 mins free parking to allow us to pop Into to local shops…

Since the snow, I've become obsessed with feeding the birds in the back yard. And with the RSPB's Big Garden Birdwatch coming up this weekend, I've even started buying food specially for them - nuts, seeds, dried fruit - to complement their regular diet of old brown bread and tired cheese ends and I'm putting out…Continue

This morning on Radio 4's Broadcasting House a DJ was recalling his favourite record shops. He mentioned one of his favourites which is a little record shop in Palmers Green run by a bloke called Derek.
I wonder who Derek is and where is his shop. It sounds really interesting. Anyone know?
I was feeling a bit blue and just went over the shops on the parade at Bounds Green. There was a guy busking outside the tube station - a jazz saxophonist playing Take Five by Dave Brubeck amongst other stuff. I hope he returns, he cheered me up no end. (Yes, I did donate!).
