Gass Day - 9 September 2017

In other places it might be called “A Yard Sale” or “A Garage Sale” or even “A Car Boot Sale” but not in North St Margarets. There is a ‘Sale’ coming all right but you won’t find a Car or a Boot, or a Garage or a Yard for that matter. In North St Margarets their street sale is called “G.A.S.S Day” which fans of acronyms might recognise as “Great Annual Street Sale”. Acronym fans will also recognise that it is run by NSMRA - the North St Margarets Residents Association - and like all good street sales it takes place in the street.

Facing the last Trump!

Having noted President Trump’s rather gung-ho, fire and fury attitude to nuclear deterrent and the possibility that he might wake up at 3.00am one morning, reach for the Twitter button on his mobile phone (I was going to say ‘smart phone’ but clearly ‘Smart’ and ‘Trump’ do not sit very well together) and inadvertently trigger World War 3. I decided to dig out my battered copy of Civil Defence Handbook No. 10 “Advising the Householder on Protection against Nuclear Attack” and swot up… just in case.
