On the shopfront, the Budgen's experience continues to gather comments; the disappearance of a letting agent will make some difference to the landscape;  the appearance of an Air Ambulance charity shop has brought a learned and heroic response from Charlie; and Adrian has enjoyed a transaction in a booth.

On the street scene Jacqueline appears to have set out to keep lamp posts warm in the cold weather

Scams continue to abound - don't give anything away to cold callers, nor be taken in by fraudulent psychotherapists (or real ones either), and certainly don't fall for the ludicrous notion that Microsoft might call you.

The Virgin broadband debate continues, and James has pointed us to a potentially useful piece of software, who ever supplies the bandwidth.

A few of us are unhappy with the Heineken monopoly, but the Three Compasses offers some escape over the Easter weekend. Check out our other events for several over Easter including a stress buster and some Wellbeing classes in early April..

Haringey has sung the praises of some unsung heroines (go figure), and is participating in an exercise in the power of collective bargaining in the face of skyrocketing energy bills which maybe you should consider.

And Adrian feels threatened by some recent Parliamentary shenanigans
