Harbours, TIC's & ET's

Benefitz Betty's picture

There may seem some irony in that the Welcome to Yorkshire team are selling off local Tourist Information Centres, strategically placed at Whitby and Scarborough, harbourside.  Though there is little 'strategic' evidence to find of thought process,  thou  to suggest that an opportunistic, erm, knock off exists at these here shores.   Aye tis is a shore thing that SBC are sure to sell off wot it can to keep its financial vaults, flowing outward and inward. Tidal.


Area 51 - Crane Attack

Captain Qahn's picture

Area 51 has been taken over by amusement type vehicles ... has Flaming Land taken up occupation on the West Pier as a preclude to the battle of the Futurist? As Crane &  Abel head out to see with a digger on board is fracking off shore the latest craze in Skardiborgibadaas?  

Strange clingon orange metal believed to be copper, has appeared around Area 51 hanger as the stoned masons continue to work undetected and unheeded.

Tour de Yorkshire has received £500,000 Tory Government funding and £140,000 from Scarbrough Borough Council, as well as services from within SBC's own departments.  Other than the 'cuts' being made to frontline services due to budget & austerity measures, the fact that the Tour de Yorkshire is held the week-end before any usual election date, questions need to be asked.


Bronte & The Bronze

Benefitz Betty's picture

Pens, profiles & places, shy explorer tools of the Bronze Age, where once upon a time fantastic realities his stories and futures were made...  

The Bronte sisters too are acclaimed for capturing the spirit of an age, pens 'n' swords ...  "In a time when women were considered little more than social adornments and bearers of offspring  ... The options for the proper yet impoverished woman during the time were limited a governess or teacher, roles Charlotte Brontë considered forms of bondage..."

Cash is King ... Pin

The importance of Money ... most accept, like it or not, we live in a Capitalist culture based on supply meets demand, to trade or not to trade. Banks do it, consumers do it, we all do it ....  earn, spend, borrow.  Vulgarities aside, from the Chancellor of the Exchequer to the homeless man on the street, we all get by doing what we can, in these 'austere' times, to live within our means or to dip, peddle, tinker, potter.   Borrowing seems straight forward  it is The Art of Lending that is a bit of a mystery.
