OK I am going to join in, where I live, Soloby.

 

It isn't in the Captains AA road atlas.

There's always Chip Shop,  no chippy, but a pub called the Queen Victoria,  or at least there was last time I was out there.

But close enough to Blubberhouses, I'll warrant.

Closer than me, anyway.

 

According to the AA (despite Soloby not being in their road atlas) I am 2 hrs 27 mins away from Blubberhouses or 116.5 miles on the shortest route.

Well now you have visited the ranch you know or did you fall a sleep on the journey home and have no idea?

Jeff and I had to keep talking to keep John (our Chauffeur) awake, not enough caffeine in the water.:o

Google maps shows my mate, John's holiday let cottages. Not the village. 

 

For some reason the local villagers call our village Soloby, it is actually Saltfleetby, pronounced not Salt-fleet-be as in Grims-be or Dar-be but Salt-fleet-buy. Confused, try living here.

There is some justice in the world, though - https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-49248764

 

 

Could you really see that happening in this country though with all the liberal, soap dodging ,do gooders around.

That fly tipping story reminded me of a wonderful line in the Arlo Guthrie song Alice's Restaurant. The narrator is looking for somwhere to dump some rubbish when he happens upon a  cliff with a pile of rubbish at the bottom. "We decided that one big pile was better than two little piles, and rather than bring that one up we decided to throw ours down"

Yes- plastic drinking straw with a tiny ball of blue tack pushed in the ends. Someone is going to point out, of course, there should be two longitudinal cylinders.
