Pat, I think that as the techies are working on the upgrade to this site, some blips are appearing in this old version - I suppose they can't do everything at once so non-urgent blips will just have to be ignored - we'll all just have to keep checking in to see what's going on

For a traditional Brussels sprout, I'd choose one of the varieties here

Good morning everyone as you arrive  G'day Pat, when your internet catches up

Up and dressed early - I need to do something about some new tyres and as Kwikfit are usually a good option I want to get there reasonably early and not sit in a queue.

LilyP - pain is incredibly stressful and tiring - treat yourself gently.  Hope you get some relief very soon.

Hazel - we love St Ives - I first holidayed there when I was twenty and now OH and I try to go most years.  It can get a bit busy in the school hols and it's virtually impossible to drive in the town in the old part of the town because the streets are so narrow, but the light is wonderful and the ambience so relaxed. 

If you're staying elsewhere in Cornwall the best way to visit St Ives is to leave your car at the car park at Lelant Saltings just along the coast and take the scenic coastal train service around the fringe of Carbis Bay to St Ives - it works like a Park & Ride.  Fantastic and no parking problems
