Maybe some enterprising crook had dumped it there for safe keeping...  *cycle*

It sounds like the modern mentality has exceeded itself there Steve, but why didn't the owner notify the Police.     Unless of course   ........

I remember a situation in the Flintshire area years ago when the owner of a property reported a  break in to the Police and alleged that a large amount of money representing the weekend's takings had been stolen from his safe
The Police went to his property and the incident was splashed out across all the local papers.
Amongst the readers of the papers were staff from the Inland Revenue who were also interested in the article and paid the gentleman a visit too       :o

I am not sure if I agree with these changes,  but we are reading a lot about drug related crime, which affects us all, and it would be interesting to see the results of the trials, mentioned below, and to hear others views ......   

Radical new approach to halt rise in Wales' drug deaths.      Interesting article from the Pioneer

As long as drugs remain illegal there'll be problems. However, as the legal use and sale of alcohol has conclusively shown, by legalising drugs it does three things: regulates the quality of the supply, so the NHS has to deal with fewer cases of unintentional poisoning, creates a new revenue stream for the exchequer and puts numerous criminal gangs out of business at a stroke.

I am with the person who put up the sign, maybe a bit strong for some members of the passing public (children) but I understand why, I have used signs before, polite, ( not what I wanted to write ), I had an open garden/verge, most picked up, some just smeared and others let their dogs crash through the flower beds, probably on the end of a 30ft. lead,  I would not call these people responsible, I also include those who allow their dogs to pee anywhere, on recycling bags and boxes etc, bearing in mind these could be handled/taken in for storage, we assume both have been contaminated.

AN 'OFFENSIVE' notice has gone up in Llansannan urging owners to take their pets elsewhere - in a move to combat dog fouling.

Llansannan Community Blog posted a photograph of the sign on Facebook, which read: 'Take Your Dog Elsewhere to S*** as I am sick of getting covered in it when grass cutting'.

Some people are about as selfish as it's possible to be. Some dog owners are certainly less well trained than dogs.

The other day I was watching Songs of Praise and was quite moved watching Katherine Jenkins singing "Peace in the valley"   with the Birmingham Voices filmed at the beautiful national botanic gardens of Wales.     I enjoyed it so much that I looked it up on Google and have since bought the album.

Among the comments about the singer was one I came across, which I had almost forgotten about and it was a hacked email from a narcissist with an over inflated sense of self importance.   I'm talking about David Beckham the ex footballer and his rant was about not getting a knighthood that he thought that he deserved

I don't know what he is up to but the Daily Mirror is publishing photos of him that Beckham sends to the paper.  They are in it nearly every other day and it's getting a bit boring now.    Is he pushing his claim for a knighthood again?
