Storyline

‘Comedy is a Serious Business; a serious business with only one purpose – to make people laugh.’ W.C. Fields


It seems that the best comedies and action dramas these days are coming to the internet first rather than television.  It doesn’t mean that they’re any cheaper to run, cast and crew might work for free but there are still the insurances, the hire of equipment and the teabags to pay for!

Pride (2014)

During the 1984 UK Miner’s Strike a group of LGBT activists helped raise money for the families affected by the strike.  Because of the National Union of Mineworkers being reluctant to accept the group’s support, as they didn’t wish to be associated with a gay group, the LGBT group took the donations directly to a small mining village in Wales.  The results were unlike anything seen before.

Weevil sightings have been reported in Warwickshire, Southam to be exact.  Only three hours ago, (10:15am) Jess Emma Towey snapped this photograph of our missing weevil.  Of course to be fair it could be any weevil, but Joshua does like the limelight a little and has been known to pose  for photographs, and here he is outside a pub.

Have you seen our Weevil?

Joshua, our resident weevil, who we do love, really, headed off on an errand for us here at the base, and was meant to arrive in Germany to stay with @ChocoBetty, however he never quite got there.  We're not altogether sure why he never arrived, just that he didn't.  So activating his tracker, which was later detected hanging on a metal fence three services before Cardiff, we're a little bit concerned as to where he is.  

Then our ~Toshiko~ received a cyber postcard and it would appear he is in York.  



So if you happen to see Joshua any time this summer, snap a photo of him and send it in to us, so that
