    FEEL Sadly, another Grumpy Gonner but I love a bit of melodic rock.
  7. Plastic Bottle Ban?

    If they remove it will they be taking the piss?
  8. Plastic Bottle Ban?

    I always used to rock up to Glastonbury in my caravan and happily boast to the stewards "no glass". If you have to say "no plastic" too it will get silly. All our stuff like cooking oils was decanted into re-used plastic bottles. Surely there's nothing wrong with a limited number of plastic bottles as long as you re-use them.
  9. Green Man Festival 2018

    Welcome to the Green Man converts. Yes some places can be a bit muddy but no real problems. The main stage arena is in a valley overlooked by a series of terraces on the hillside where there is plenty of space to plonk down a camping chair. I now have to do all of my music sitting and you'll have no problem at Green Man.
  10. General News Discussion

    Sadly those who prey on the vulnerable look for opportunities that enable contact - for example soccer coaching, music teaching and, it would seem, aid work. It is a reason to be extra vigilant in those areas but not a reason to stop helping people improve their soccer skills, music abilities or end aid work.

  13. Things that annoy you ?

    Good news. Got home from the airport run and we'd almost got water. Water board engineers had run a temporary supply pipe from my neighbour's house which worked, once I'd explained to them they couldn't connect it to my house supply in the way they proposed - the wrong way through two non-return valves. So a temporary water system till Thursday when they have another site meeting to try to identify the location of the mains leak. If everyone had to spend a couple of days without mains water they'd soon discover how difficult it can be and donations to WaterAid would soar. We've had a standing order with WA for years - something they can thank Glastonbury for.

    They offered to go back to their depot to get some bottles but I told them we had enough for tonight. Tomorrow they'll bring some and explore running a temporary pipe from my helpful neighbour's house to us until they fix the leak. One positive (for me) the flight from Australia has been delayed by three hours so I don't need to set off now till 6.30am. Hopefully by the time we get back from Heathrow we'll have a temporary water supply. Time for bed. Thanks Sandie. xxx

    I couldn't have had a more shit day than today. A big funeral this morning (the first of three in five days which will culminate in mother in law's next Wednesday), home to watch Wales lose and to discover that we have a house with no water due to a burst water main down our lane. They've been working trying to fix the leak for two weeks without success but until now we've had some water and a lot of bubbling air. Now we have absolutely no water. Great when I have to do a 6 am airport run to Heathrow to collect sister in law and her son who are flying over from Australia for mother in law's funeral. On top of all that because of the faffing in the rain getting soaked with a water engineer, failing to resolve the leak, I was too late to go with my mate to a gig tonight. Tomorrow the water board promise to come and lay in a temporary pipe to give us some water. Meanwhile we're surviving on a few bottles left over from my festival supply. Still they probably needed drinking up.
