We have been having some strange weather recently – snow, fog, heavy rain, etc.
I don’t need to remind you about the dangers of drinking and driving, or using your phone whilst driving, do I???
Unfortunately, there are always a few drivers who seem to have their accelerator pedal welded to the floor – even in poor weather conditions.
To borrow a phrase I saw on Twitter please – “Drive to Arrive”.
Hart District has taken back the crown of “Best Place To Live” for the fifth year of the last six.

Hart District Council would like residents to recycle any glass bottles, jars, etc, that they accumulate over the festive season.
They are happy to provide free extra boxes for recycling your glass. Or – you can pay £30 for an extra wheelie bin for your glass.

Hart District Council have teamed up with the Food Standards Agency to provide tips on how to cook your turkey so you and your family will be healthy over Christmas. (Obviously other meats are available – and the same tips would apply.)

It is my least favourite time of year – forget “Deck the halls with bows of Holly – Tis the season to be jolly” – it seems to be a case of “Deck the Halls with illuminated Holly – tis the season to blind and disorientate people like me”.
Don’t get me wrong – I like a well-lit Christmas tree as much as everyone else. (Even if my favourite Christmas decoration is a small triangular – or semicircular – thing with what look like small candles on it.)
My problems start when people decide to illuminate the outside of their houses so that passing aircraft – or even the International Space Station – can easily see them.
I am not going to quote the Nativity story at you but I always wonder what the Wise Men would have to follow if the story happened today??? How can a small star compete with all the light pollution caused by over-bright lights on houses???
Please remember some of us find it difficult to wander around near very bright lights.
