    An excellent point, Seth.
    If it helps I did scribe a missive to the caterers pointing out that I would have suffered a serious vitamin deficiency with the very real danger of one-day onset ricketts because I had chosen their pasty.
    I emphasised that I demand nothing less than a perfectly a balanced diet when attending sports events.

    They just looked at me strangely.
  • Off it, your post is in itself a bleat methinks.
  • Floyd thank you for the compliment.
  • Anyway, didn't Greenwich look great for all those viewers around the world?

    I loved the tip to Spinal Tap

    If you say so old son, if you say so.

    I'm just amazed how some people manage to get through each day without imploding.

    Just a shame the dwarves are out of shot. Probably scared by the horse, the wee fellas.

    They do a great, unseen job putting the fences back together, Offy. They deserve greater recognition.

    On to the drop in tourism debate (and as Greenwich gets 2 million tourists a year why does a shop decline (balanced by sold out accommodation and packed out restaurants) really matter for a fortnight?) there are some great comments at the bottom of this article.

    Interesting to see locals naming the places inflating their prices

    ''On a similar thread, I’ve been down the past couple of days planning to eat out locally at least a few times over the ‘Lympic period (in the places that haven’t raised their prices, natch) and I have to say that yesterday evening absolutely everywhere was full, even the places I wouldn’t piss on if they were burning, but I suspect that once the Equestrian events are over the tumbleweed may blow back in if us locals don’t get out and at least have a go.''
  • Conran estates sent out an email to 15K people on it's list yesterday asking everyone to support local shops. Today they've sent out a list of discounts from small retailers who got back to them.

    Pretty nice of them and worth reading their emails (for once) if you get them
