I've just had nice visit from a nice lady from Stalag Luft
headquartererers staff who says, because I am unhappy here now, they are
trying to find me a new place in Scarborough so I can be nearer the x^4.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRR RRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, can you not tactfully suggest that just like being near a pub with
live music, it can be a double edged sword if you fancy a nice quiet night
in.

You could always develop a liking for Brid or Filey, they are both nearer
but far enough?

I love Brid, but then I have a long list of slightly run down resorts I
like. Very friendly. Scarborough I dislike because of poor toilet
provision on the front. And Whitby seems full of people about to disappear
up their own fundament. The teacher's union there was a bunch of the rudest
people I've ever met. Forget which union but remember it was teachers.

To me it sounds as if they want to be able to designate her as your
carer so they don't have to spend as much money on you. And, yes, I
always have been that cynical.

Shirely the aim should be accommodation _in_ the pub - plus a healthy
staff discount on all its products.

The road to Hell is paved with good intentions.

(Actually, it's paved with tarmac, if you mean the real village.)

I took a drive round the proffered place in that Scarborough yesterday.

Actually I quite like the location and the building is newish. The
current incumbents seem more active than where I am now. Here I am the
only resident out of 60 odd with a car. There, there were about 15 cars
in the carp ark (all with disabled stickers). Plus it is next door to
the horsespittle where I am being done, and there is a pub round the
corner within easy scooter distance, and it is within easy striking
distance of the aforementioned Filey and Whitby, and of course, The Moors.

The disadvantage is the distance it would be to Wetherby for my radio shows.

All I would need would be an x^4 repellent.

Nowadays, as long as you have a quiet room and a couple of other bits
and pieces, you could probably do most of the shows from home or nearby?

I know one guy that does his (Admittedly non-live) shows from his living
room....

I can and do occasionally pre-record shows from home, but as the boss at
Tempo FM says, what's the point of having a £2,000 broadcast studio if
nobody is going to use it? Besides which, I much prefer doing shows live
with guests.

Been there, done that, took a photo:

On reflection that's a shattering idea. Why risk seven years bad luck?

It might take a bit more organisation but perhaps you could record your
programs like the BBC do with The Archers? I'm not suggesting you fill
the show with people in silly cowboy hats with horns going ooh-arr but
they record about three weeks of daily episodes over about five
intensive working days. Maybe you could get your guests into the studio
once every four weeks or so, put one of the shows out live and put the
others out on a schedule?

Oi! I live in Whitby! And we've snatched the toilets out of SBC's
hands and got them working.

Don't know if there'd be any housing suitable for Tone, though,
all the stuff I've seen in my perambulations seem to be more
"OAP storage" facilities.

There does seem to be a colony of those stereotyped hard-on lefty
"it's our divine right to run the world" ex-teacher-y sorts tho.
