Like many contributors I guess! to the Elstead News I was wondering the other day what I could
write about this month, well this problem was solved very quickly one evening recently
by one of my daughters. I was at home relaxing reading a newspaper whilst watching football
on the TV (yes men can multi task) when I overheard one of our daughter's telling
my wife that her (our daughter's) current facebook status was 'not long to go now'
this she said was a reference to our forthcoming family holiday, I suddenly took a little
more notice of this conversation that was occurring on the next sofa. Now I know next to nothing
about facebook, bebo or twitter but I do know that these sites can be accessed by people that
you would not like to read them, they are in essence only as strong as their weakest link.
I said to our daughter " what's the point in cancelling the milk, papers etc when
your telling half the nation ( slight exaggeration ) that we're going away" like
any teenager she took some convincing that I was right, but she eventually agreed it
was a silly thing to do, and changed her status to " we're not going away anymore
" Actually we are but the in-laws are dog sitting for us, because we have 4 Rottweiler's,
and 2 German Shepherd dogs to look after, I jest but you get my point, please be careful who
you are letting know that you won't be at home.
One of my regular public forums was held at the URC on the evening of the 7th of
May and for the first time ever there was not a single local issue that was raised for me
to work on, many of the those who attended raised certain points but it was decided
they were not actually issues where the police could lend assistance, and may
I take this opportunity to thank those residents who take the time and trouble to attend my
meetings your support is very much appreciated.
