Someone on fb apparently has a friend whose 13 yr old son interviewed

Emma while Nic is ill, but his attidude influenced by hearing his

George would certainly be about the right age to acquire a voice. He
lives, mainly, with Emma and Ed, so being looked after by Emma wouldn't
come as a shock but having all Nic's children at Grange Farm as well
might.

I have a nasty feeling that Nic may not survive this and Brian may have
a fatality on his hands. Given the degree of support Will has been
giving Brian and his unwillingness to even consider the possibility that
Brian might have questions to answer, it seems very probable that the
pollution is the cause of Nic's illness.

You are correct. Anything Nic picked up, whether bugs causing sepsis or
pollution causing who knows what damage, was acquired when she cut
herself while sorting out Joe's stuff for jumble. Joe's tqt could
easily have been sitting around on land contaminated with who knows what.

That would be typical for Ambridge but they seem to have been setting
things up for a lot of people to be left with regrets about how they
treated Nic, which seems to be pointing to her death. Will's decision
to go dancing with her, in particular, but also her falling out with
Emma and Jolene's decision to sack her, all provide fertile ground for
both regrets and ill feeling from Will.

Sunday 25th - The village is in shock,
Hm, wonder if this relates to Will's 'shock' tonight and the
long night for
the Grundys on Friday?
I assume so. I have noted who is not in the cast list.
As do I.
Someone on fb apparently has a friend whose 13 yr old son interviewed
very recently for a part in TA.  People were speculating on who he
might play. I thought George.  A stroppy George, being looked after by
Emma while Nic is ill, but his attidude influenced by hearing his
parents alk about Emma and Ed in a disparaging way.
George would certainly be about the right age to acquire a voice.
He lives, mainly, with Emma and Ed, so being looked after by Emma
wouldn't come as a shock but having all Nic's children at Grange
Farm as well might.
I have a nasty feeling that Nic may not survive this and Brian may
have a fatality on his hands. Given the degree of support Will has
been giving Brian and his unwillingness to even consider the
possibility that Brian might have questions to answer, it seems very
probable that the pollution is the cause of Nic's illness.
Right.  However, unless I am egg white whisked with sugar and baked,
it was Kirstie who was swimming in the filth.
You are correct.  Anything Nic picked up, whether bugs causing sepsis
or pollution causing who knows what damage, was acquired when she cut
herself while sorting out Joe's stuff for jumble.  Joe's tqt could
easily have been sitting around on land contaminated with who knows what.
And had also been damaged in the flood...
I think everyone will assume it was the pollution and Brian will be
further castigated <FX: checks spelling carefully> but Nic will recover
eventually.
OP
That would be typical for Ambridge but they seem to have been setting
things up for a lot of people to be left with regrets about how they
treated Nic, which seems to be pointing to her death. Will's decision
to go dancing with her, in particular, but also her falling out with
Emma and Jolene's decision to sack her, all provide fertile ground for
both regrets and ill feeling from Will.
Don’t think Wiwll has capacity for anything other than ill feeling these
years.....
Shirley, it's Nic who's got some ill feeling at the moment.

Delighted to hear about the ceremony.

Thanks for the BT Nomination too though this time I wasn't actually
punting for one. I was just so incensed at the idea that, in the crazy,
gun-obsessed world that is the USA, a trained officer with a uniform and
a gun who has been paid for - what is it? - eight or nine years? - to
protect the kids in that school, in the end, didn't do his job.

Then I thought, so what if he wasn't trained and they just put a poor
sucker into a uniform and gave him a gun and told him it'll never happen
here. So the poor sap suffers PTSD and sues his employers. I suspect it
will be interesting to see what investigative media in the US dig up here.

A family I know in Miami were horrified when their darling little one
started school and the very first lesson they received was how to hide
in a safe place and stay very, very still.....

These deputies are apparently "sworn law enforcement officers who are
responsible for safety and crime prevention in schools, although their
exact roles differ from school to school and authority to authority"
and there are between 14,000 and 20,000 in schools across the US.

So, doesn't this kind of contradict all the people (and Presidents)
saying that having good guys with guns in schools will stop the bad
guys with guns? If this guy isn't going to engage, what will giving
your average English or Home Ec teacher a concealed weapon change?

No, the car said minus 1 but it's dry here so no snow and I didn't
have to de-ice the car either, which I had to last week. As it was the

Thick flurries in Blackheath, settling a little because it's very dry
and still about freezing, though disappearing when the flurry stops. The
parakeets (the nearest Sarf Lahndon equivalent to the balmy joys of
Shepherds Bush) are very cross.

B says we had a few flurries an hour ago but by the time I looked out
of the window there were none. I just walked the dog in sunshine but
it was definitely not balmy. It was so cold that this was the second
time this year I resolved to buy a balaclava and risk being arrested

I knew an old man who had seen snow in Buenos Aires twice in his life.
In the celebrated 2007 snowfall, of course but he had been a toddler
when the 1918 snow fell. As I said, he was a very old man.

No snow here today, though it is colder than usual at 22deg this morning.

Whether or not[1] giving teachers loaded guns to take into classrooms
would help to prevent outsiders coming in and shooting the students, I
suspect that it would greatly increase the danger of teachers shooting
students in their own classes:
"Well, officer, he just wouldn't stop being a right disruptive pain in
the bum. I mean, come on - what was I supposed to do? And anyway, pour
encourager les autres, and all that."

To be fair, though, the only alternative would be not to sell powerful
automatic weapons which are capable of killing dozens of people very
quickly to anyone who wants them, which is plainly ludicrous.

Personally, I blame the teachers.


[1]I strongly suspect not, although it would probably mean that the
teachers were shot first, which might give the students a second or two
more in which to run or hide.

I don't remember if I've already posted this, but I assume the
teacher/cleaner/caretaker would not wear the pistol in a holster all
the time? If not, where would the gun be? A locked drawer in their
desk/cleaning materials cupboard? Not on the desk, I assume? And then
when a killer comes into the classroom, with any kind of gun, they
have to be at the desk and get it out. If they are at the otehr side
of the classroom explaining or marking, they'd need to get back to the
desk. Not a fast response then.

According to the Orange Fart, the 'beauty' of this is that the teacher
is carrying a concealed gun. ie, it's in a holster. All the time.

Another obvious flaw is what is all too likely to happen if the
authorised, trained, teacher is black.

May I make a huge swerve and a real life OP that Deputy Scot Peterson

The guns situation in the States and President Fart suggesting that
training and arming selected staff with guns as a remedy rather reminds me
of the lines from ‘How to succeed in business without really trying’: ‘The

I'm astonished that so many people here are sceptical about Trump's
suggestion. After all, it worked so well after 9/11 when they gave all
the air crew craft knives.

The suggestion that the best answer to gun crime is to arm all the good
guys is one which Trump, and his advisors, have so much faith in that
all guns were banned from anywhere near his inauguration...

I'm sure that's got to be Fake News. I mean, The Donald is sure there
were millions more people at his inauguration than there were at
Obama's and somehow CNN and all the other Fake News outlets managed to
airbrush them all out of the coverage. All those people were packing
and were ready to blow away all the snowflakes who were going to cry
because their guy lost.

Sorry, I've not been feeling well recently!

Sunday 25th - The village is in shock,
Hm, wonder if this relates to Will's 'shock' tonight and the long night for
the Grundys on Friday?
I assume so. I have noted who is not in the cast list.
As do I.
Someone on fb apparently has a friend whose 13 yr old son interviewed
very recently for a part in TA.  People were speculating on who he
might play. I thought George.  A stroppy George, being looked after by
Emma while Nic is ill, but his attidude influenced by hearing his
parents alk about Emma and Ed in a disparaging way.
George would certainly be about the right age to acquire a voice.  He
lives, mainly, with Emma and Ed, so being looked after by Emma
wouldn't come as a shock but having all Nic's children at Grange Farm
as well might.
I have a nasty feeling that Nic may not survive this and Brian may
have a fatality on his hands. Given the degree of support Will has
been giving Brian and his unwillingness to even consider the
possibility that Brian might have questions to answer, it seems very
probable that the pollution is the cause of Nic's illness.
Right.  However, unless I am egg white whisked with sugar and baked,
it was Kirstie who was swimming in the filth.
You are correct.  Anything Nic picked up, whether bugs causing sepsis or
pollution causing who knows what damage, was acquired when she cut
herself while sorting out Joe's stuff for jumble.  Joe's tqt could
easily have been sitting around on land contaminated with who knows what.
And had also been damaged in the flood...
I think everyone will assume it was the pollution and Brian will be
further castigated <FX: checks spelling carefully> but Nic will recover
eventually.
OP
Er.... just catching up on umra. Tend to think you are going to have to
wait a while for your eventually.

Yup, I was wrong! I'll be taking meringues round to Will later on.

I hadn't considered that Brian refusing to give Will the day off would
to equally well to change Will's unswerving support for him.

Now that Will has burnt the rusty nail and all that came with it, it

simply made the hole through which the infection entered.

Of course you're not alone.

Two, small, parallel cuts appeared on my foot the other day, oozing
blood. First thought: spider bite - am I going to die an agonizing Death
in Venom? Then more realistically, I probably cut it going up some steps
with broken, glazed-tile treads and caught one on my up-step. Relief.
Until I find you all discussing Nic!

I once cut my big toe quite badly on a stair in a College which was hosting an Open University tutorial. I was the tutor. College first aiders bandaged it up and my tutorial went ahead. An OU Staff Tutor who happened to be present was most solicitous but I had to fill up the accident books for both the college and the OU.

Sunday 25th - The village is in shock,
Hm, wonder if this relates to Will's 'shock' tonight and the long night for
the Grundys on Friday?
I assume so. I have noted who is not in the cast list.
As do I.
Someone on fb apparently has a friend whose 13 yr old son interviewed
very recently for a part in TA. People were speculating on who he
might play. I thought George. A stroppy George, being looked after by
Emma while Nic is ill, but his attidude influenced by hearing his
parents alk about Emma and Ed in a disparaging way.
George would certainly be about the right age to acquire a voice. He
lives, mainly, with Emma and Ed, so being looked after by Emma wouldn't
come as a shock but having all Nic's children at Grange Farm as well
might.
There may also be a need to cast Jake & Mia, if there's going to be a
custody storyline.
True and they're also about the right age to join the cast.

Monday 26th - Tony offers the benefit of his experience, and Pip has a
change of heart.
That reminds me - Lizzie's condition (like Daniel's) has mostly been
forgotten, though Freddie did remember it when Nolly suggested getting
her high.

Tuesday 27th - Alice feels guilty, and Neil needs a solution.

Jennifer finds the car with damage behind the cottage and has to

written. Things happen and then are forgotten about, while other
things just pop up out of nowhere.

There was mention of Anysha the other day, but I can't remember
hearing that she's back at work or whether she's still looking after
her Dad. She was looking for somewhere close by for him to move to,
but we've heard nothing of that.

Toby has suddenly had the Ozzie soap-style personality transplant and
become something other than a feckless waster - although Pip has also
had a visit from the PTF in that she's not told him to stop crowding
her.

We keep getting teased with Alice's drinking. I assume this feud with
the guy at work will suddenly turn into either an affair or she's
going to run him over.

And don't even get me going on Susan and Neil.

I can almost cope with Neil being offered the job, as he is a good
pigman and is good at managing people. And the timing is good for
him, as he can carry on working without the physical side of it. But
Susan's job is just completely out of line.

I'm actually hopinng that Will will pay Clarrie to give up work and
look after the kids on a proper basis and she can earn some decent
money without having to listen to Susan being a total PITA, also
leaving Helen in the lurch for being utterly useless.

I don't think we've actually heard Anisha since her mother died but we
have heard a couple of mentions of her being back. I think there was
one of the occasions when all the young(ish) of Ambridge were around but
Rex and Anisha were celebrating her return with an evening in.

There's also been a reference or two to her being at work, such as when
Latif was persuaded to go back to using her and Alistair as his vet.

It is not his sudden lack of feck that is most irritating, it is the

I don't find that too implausible. I suspect Tigerlike OTT describes
quite a few of the things Toby has got involved in. What is far less
certain is whether he can turn this into a long term commitment and
involvement, when it as become ordinary and routine, rather than new and
exciting.

I also wouldn't find it inherently implausible for him to make that
shift. It isn't unknown for major dramas such as this to push someone
into doing some serious, if overdue, growing up.

Again, I agree. I suspect the reason this chap at work has a downer on
Alice is that she frequently makes mistakes, or is considerably below
par, due to either hangovers or a liquid lunch.

I'm just waiting for the deal she was celebrating, a few weeks ago, to
fall apart because of something she forgot to mention or even lied about.

Will would never pay Emma for looking after the kids if there was
*any* other option available. He would begrudge every penny going to
Ed's family group.

Presumably they can't try and make her look after them for free,
especially since, as WIll sneeringly pointed out, her family need the
money from her 3 jobs, so she has no spare time.

There was mention of Anysha the other day, but I can't remember

but we've heard nothing of that.
I thought there had been some mention of all that and I'd missed it or

Rex said recently when he first encountered Tobes that he and Anisha had
bern holed up together, the same scene when Tobes announced he’s resumed
sausage hiding.
