Letter from the Editor

This month sees the government sending every household a special leaflet on what to do in case of a crisis – such as a terrorist attack on the UK. According to security sources, it’s not a case of whether or not it will happen – it will – but when! We know that we will be told to stock up on canned food and bottled water, but how many times have we done that! Remember the Millennium bug? I wonder if the leaflet will suggest stocking up on Mars bars, as apparently the MOD informed their staff to do during the Millennium bug days. It seems a good thing to have plenty of – recall the jingle! A Mars a day helps you work, rest and play. Did I imagine that or was it for real?!*?. Anyhow, we must all be very alert. Of course we could have all done without all this. All the lost lives and waste of money and god knows what else, just because two so called leaders wanted to prove a point. Ooops!

Now for something a little lighter….the weather? No, we don’t seem to have anything to say about that, which is very odd for us Brits because we usually talk of little else. But when summer is almost over and it never really happened it’s quite sad. Nevertheless I’m going to ‘Bonnie Scotland’ for a break. My friend Sonia and family are renting a mansion and we are going to chill out away from the crowds and we won’t care too much about the weather. In you’ve never done it, I can tell you there’s nothing finer than tramping through the heather early in the morning – and if it’s raining – so what! It always rains in Scotland anyway. I should know, I was brought up there. Can’t wait to try a really good haggis – if I can catch one J

Well, whatever you are doing this summer, I hope you are having a very jolly nice time. Don’t forget to check out the latest news and gossip right here.
