The two mutually loathing village associations are still arguing over the reconstructed sixteenth century pottery kiln.You may remember that some bright spark erected a tiled roof over the kiln to protect it from the elements. What it took them some time to realise is that the roof would prevent the smoke from the kilns chimney escaping. Two weeks to the August 1st unveiling and disagreements remain over where the hole should be cut in the roof. 'The font' informs me that voices were raised at the last village meeting. 'The font' ever diplomatic steered the conversation onto more positive ground and as a result we have apparently agreed to buy four of the first 'authentic' pieces to come off the production line. Watch this space.
Breakfast time was enlivened by the news that Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston are to marry. How chic of the young couple to announce it to their families in 'Us' magazine. The response from the Palin family was world class in its brevity and frostiness : " We obviously want the best for our children. Bristol believes in redemption and forgiveness to a degree most of us struggle to put into practice in our daily lives". Brilliant! Oh to be a fly on the wall at that redemptive and forgiving family reunion.
