What I've been doing lately is getting ME as the lead for my street as BlockWatch Coordinator. I've done the application, criminal record check, resume handed in got the Badge and I've now been out and up and down the street collecting names etc. so that we can form a neighbourhood blockwatch. None of us have had major crimes committed against us but rather we're getting pilfered. Small items are being taken and more and more street type people are becoming brazen and walking up to houses and homes and simply lifting anything not nailed down. Has been an interesting day of meeting everybody living on this street. Once I get 75% signed up we'll have a major meeting with RCMP so they can advise what all has been happening and what all they want us to do.

Thanks Kiya. The figure is of Christ and was restored to its position over the gateway in recent years. This link has many postcards and historical notes about the gateway which is not SO old, only 500 years last year. Just 6 of my lifetimes which puts it in perspective ;) :lol:
Pass holders like me enter by the small gate to the left of the main gate.

Thanks Grandad....interesting history in that link, the gate does look better with the turrets re-

built, and glad to read in that link that another like me think the blue Christ doesn't look right

compared to the structure all around it.

I've entered a very busy stage at the moment. I have three quilts tops to get sandwiched and quilted, the put the binding on and done! I finished quilting one today so just got to trim and bind. BTW, I'm still picking tomatoes! I think they are coming to an end now though. :)

Glad you mentioned tomatoes RS. We had been picking them as they ripened then last Thursday I stripped all that were left, ripening or not, and disposed of the vines in the bin collection. They are ripening quite rapidly in a bowl in the kitchen and we only have a few left. It has been good to eat our own fruit though, new experience for me ;) :up

I decided to shred a bag of documents that my daughter had asked me to do when she was staying here.
I thought it wouldn't take me long - I had brought my small shredder with me but daughter had a big heavy job so starting by using hers. But I had trouble getting it to start, then found the teeth were jammed up with paper. After an hour I had managed to free it and off I went …………….. but it didn't want to take more than 2 pages and suddenly jammed again!


Therefore I spent about 4 hours or more shredding paper on the small machine and unblocking the cutter on the big machine. I do not want to touch that big machine ever again. :x

To add insult to injury I hoped to get the two sacks of shredded paper out for the bin men who usually come about 5.00pm Today they came early morning and several houses missed them/ It was blowing a gale this morning so some of us don't put out early as the bags blow all over the street. No problem but I really don't want 3 bags of recycling in the kitchen for the week.


However having said all that I have a sense of achievement for getting the job done, everything cleared up and I won't have to do it again for a while. :up
