Dacha ... It's carnival weekend , nothing out of the ordinary appears to have happened. Difficult to phrase that when an alleged rape is being investigated ... But that is what has happened and suddenly the town has gone into lockdown and rumours of all sorts of stuff including violence and stabbings are circulating on social media but the police say no such incidents have been reported. It all seems to have coincided with the arrival of a group of travellers ... tp the best of my recollection travellers turn up every year, in association with the fairground which is a major part of the carnivals in Cromer and Sheringham every year. There's always an increased police presence and nothing seems to have happened this year other than hysteria and panic fuelled by gossip on social media. 

The Eastern Daily Press website gives a calm appraisal of the situation.

There was a lot of 'Madonna adoration' amongst some of the youngsters when I was at art school in the early 90s ........... then I introduced them to Dusty Springfield and Aretha Franklin.......'nuff said

I find Madonna intensely irritating.

Start with the camera icon ... if the photo doesn't appear reducing the size usually works.

I usually let the seedheads ripen then cut them off and hang them from the fence for the birds.  They love them.
