Medium Evening at the Old Court Hotel
psychic evening was held at the Old
Court Hotel on Wednesday evening during which members
of the audience made contact with relatives and friends
via psychic mediums, Carol Green and Anthony Blackmore.
was only actually there for a short time but in that time,
a young lady was given a message from her grandmother, which
seemed to make a lot of sense to her. She knew it was definitely
her grandmother because, during her lifetime, she had liked
the photo, Carol and Anthony can be seen with Victoria,
owner of the Old Court Hotel.
must admit that, although very interested, I am the world's
biggest sceptic when it comes to contact with the dead.
I was kind of hoping that my Mum or at least an aunt or
uncle would pop in and prove me wrong by saying 'hello'
but alas... Maybe they just didn't recognize me because
I left my hat at home.
at the Prince of Wales
Blight provided a great evening of music on Saturday evening
at the Prince of Wales. Having been a hot day, there were
not as many of the usual crowd there but those who were
there enjoyed the evening very much.
are not going to believe this but I do not have the usual
photos of Tina dancing this week. Tina worked on Saturday
instead of her usual Sunday, could not make it to the Prince
and I was forced to go it alone.
coming Saturday at the Prince, the live entertainment will
be provided by, 'The Fletch' who play a range of rock and
blues covers. Sounds good and I'm looking forward to that
warned about missing humane killing pistol
are warning the public not to handle a missing humane killing
pistol should they discover it. The gun, used in the humane
slaughter of animals, has been reported missing from the
Leadon Vale Veterinary Centre in Ledbury.
humane killer, a Safti 6021 model, is described as being
a black metal pistol with a diamond-shaped handgrip and
a sliding nozzle. It was contained within a black bag, along
with a navy blue box containing a small amount of ammunition.
The pistol was noticed missing during the afternoon of Friday,
13th April, although the last time it can be positively
accounted for was on March 14 in the Much Cowarne area.
spent last weekend conducting searches using officers and
specialist dog handlers at all known possible locations
for the pistol but have been unable to locate it. They are
now warning the public about the dangers of the weapon and
appealing for anyone who may have knowledge of its whereabouts
to contact police immediately.
'The pistol is of the type used in the humane destruction
of animals and is therefore potentially lethal if discharged,'
said a police spokesman. 'Although it cannot be fired from
range like a conventional weapon, it could still remain
dangerous and it is important that anyone finding the pistol
does not attempt to handle it. Equally, the ammunition itself
could be dangerous if handled inappropriately.'
who believes they may have seen the pistol or has knowledge
of someone who may have come into possession of it is urged
to contact police on 08457 444888 immediately.
are continuing to investigate the circumstances of how the
gun came to be missing and will review any firearms licensing
issues once these are fully established.

strangest thing happened to me on Friday afternoon. Earlier
in the week, I totally randomly bought a thermometer and
a barometer in Somerfield. Nothing whatsoever prompted this
- I am not particularly a weather watcher. I get the 'Wyenot
News' weather stats from the weather station and bought
the home instrument because I saw it in the shop - just
like when you go out to by some cat food and come back with
a bar of chocolate as well. (Well I do, anyway.)
hung the device in my office and forgot about it. On Friday
afternoon though, Tina saw it and asked, 'What's that?'
by her question, I told her and went over, tapped the barometer
to see if the air pressure was falling and then read out
the current temperature in the room. This was probably the
first time I had looked at a thermometer for a year.
the precise moment I read her the temperature, the telephone
rang, so I answered . . . 'Hello, Alan - this is Tim from
the BBC. Have you got a thermometer at home?'
strange,' I replied. 'I was looking at a brand new one I
bought at the moment the phone rang'.
are going to run a series of weather reports from different
towns on the Breakfast Show. Would you mind doing the weather
report from Ross on Monday morning and every so often?'
took the photo below of the Sun at sunset on Sunday. Guess
it's a kind of weather related picture as there wouldn't
be any weather without it. The black sky is an effect of
getting the sun exposure correct. No filters involved -
