All Change at Penyffordd

Passengers abandon train at Penyffordd after lorry hits bridge.

Full story

Silly Mobile Phones

For my sins I run a Nokia Lumia 625.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nokia_Lumia_series

Nice big text no messing around. It runs the Windows phone operating system

Today it died after 8 months.

Tried to recharge but no good, it tries then stops.

So its back to the shop tomorrow. Not keen on paying out.

I try Google for answers.

One suggestion says plug in charger then hold phone between hands to warm battery up.
You think they're joking.

Anyway it works, phone is on 9% and charging

Bottom line is phone gets so low it doesn't know what anything is.
Warming battery up increases power in battery slightly.

I have a meter on the front that said 91% charged before it died. This app seems to be malfunctioning after Microsoft's recent upgraded.

The Noisy Jet Fighter



overhead this afternoon was a Eurofighter Typhoon, so I am told.

Penyffordd Lad signs for a Million

20-year-old Lawrence, who hails from Penyffordd, was signed late on Monday night by the Foxes from Manchester United for a fee in the region of £1 million.

Full story here.

Penymynydd Rd speeding

Is also on the September Council agenda. Councillors should spend a little time watching speeding on Chester Rd where the red speed bump is situated (part of the major route to school)

Some do 30mph plus. They are a danger to children and lolly pop.

Perhaps a bump upgrade or compulsory 20mph

There are those that will be horrified (cul de sac residents) but cllrs have a duty to protect residents and children from the idjuts.

My view remains the same. The village should not be a fast short cut. We have a bypass.
Those of us on main roads should enjoy similar environmental conditions to those on side roads.

The Millenium Clock Garden is a dog's breakfast

and has been for some time. My garden is too but the rate payers aren't paying for it.

A step in the right direction for Penyffordd Community Council

Today I spy September council agenda fully laid out on the council board. Well done Sarah !

I also see an item to discuss putting councillor contact details on their website.
Emails would be very nice councillors especially since nearly all of you have one!

Perhaps we can have council agenda and meeting minutes all in one place councillors?

Perhaps we can get rid of the awful fir trees

Can I have the wood?

postscript: A further thought councillors. Should Cllr David Williams be allowed to put personal views on the official council website.

I think not as it makes you all look rather silly and is completely unrepresentative of council views.


To The Maelor

You would be surprised who you bump into from Penyffordd. Every time I go I add someone to the list. Today I see three people from Penyffordd.

A quick talk with Cllr Colin Bithell who is having some remedial surgery done. Good news for me, one more visit in three months time to give me the all clear.

Good news hopefully for Colin too.

Back to school today?

Some will be starting school, changing schools today. Can you remember your first day in primary school or secondary school?

My first school was Sandycroft PC. It was three quarters of a mile away in Mancot. I was presented at the school on the first morning when I was 4 years of age.

After that I had to find my own way there.

Secondary school was an unwanted change of routine. Pupils wanting to be top of the class in a bullying sort of way. Then another change when we became Comprehensive joining with a grammer school. More unwanted change.

Shortly many will be on the university trail. I find some of the subjects taken to be of little use.
We need inventors, engineers, scientists, educators, designers, entrepreneurs, people who inspire, people who will employ.

Rewards for putting your house on the line to start succesful companies

Many are pressured to go to uni who shouldn't be there.

A 50k loan to repay at the end ridiculous. (edit I read of various amounts else where)

postscript: school hasn't started, perhaps next week.....................................
