    :Cool: Perhaps we should bring Mugabe over here. Then there will only be ONE (???) corrupt government/party in office/charge. :Eeek:

    ...Seem to remember similar protestations when Maggie, the grey man and baldy were running the Government... remember when interest rates were in the teens...:Doh:

    Hi Ron

    I always go over the bridge now it's shorter but watch out for traffic coming the other way and the branches sthat stick out! I have tried the other way but found it a little narrow on one tiny bit, if you look out for a line of tall pine trees on your left about 1/2 mile from Swanage you will see a pub on the right The Royal Oak the left turn is opposite at the Swanage end of those trees a bit tight and if you are travelling too fast you could over shoot it!

    It's just a short walk to Herston Halt where you have to flag the steam train down to go to Corfe Castle or Swanage

    Have a great time and you are welcome to pop in if you want as we are not away this week as Sue is on chemo!

    A sign in the Royal Oak:Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Got some great views from the site:thumb:

    A rapidly dwindling World resource and a case of Supply and demand with the oil companies capitalising on the situation.:Doh:

    More money should be invested into the use and development of engines/propulsion of alternative fuels.

    I bet the shareholders don't think so though.Just lining their pockets and saying "Thank you very much"

    Nice Pics Pat.

    Hi Ron

    No you won't have to go across the road but it is a sharp turn slightly back on yourself so be warned slow down!

    Have a great time the bar on site is not bad either! Please say hello to Linda for me in reception I dare say we shall be going there again quite soon!

    Regards pat
