    The lido pool is due to begin filling on the 18th and to open to the public four weeks on Sunday (1st April). Men are currently painting the walls and floor, allegedly with water resistent paint this year :hmm:

    On previous form, we can probably expect a hose pipe ban to begin on the 17th.

    Went past those new flats in Coldharbour Lane (where the old car park was) today. Go past regularly, but each time, I just hate them more and more and more.

    Noticed the names on two of the buildings. Embassy and Printworks Apartments I think they were. Absolutely horrible, and the yellow entrances - bleurgh!

    Surprised Editor's not been up there snapping yet :D

    Made a point to look at the new Costa in Brixton as well. It is indeed a strange frontage

    What's happening at the old Cooltan site on Coldharbour Lane? Something's being built.

    It really does look like hoardings - I'm hoping they just haven't finished the windows yet & wanted to open early.
    Nero, Starbucks and Costa all on Brixton High Street... and still room for San Marco & all the coffee places in Brixton Market.

    There are no windows - and can't be - because the front is one big railway arch!

    Everywhere I've been in Brixton and Lough Jn I've seen coppers pulling people over, plain clothes too... Any idea why?

    A girl raped, a boy stabbed. Something to do with that maybe?

    Possibly, New Park rd and Kings avenue too...

    Helicopter was overhead a while ago. Maybe the police know the gangs involved and maybe they're from those areas?

    That Evergreen trust have reopened their 2nd hand furniture place behind the old tyre place/car wash/car lot etc on the Hill. Haven't had a look yet.

    No. :mad: I typed tyre and it highlighted it so I changed it in a moment of confusion.

    I've changed it back now. :mad: :mad:

    spell check, minnie. You've heard of spell check haven't you? Who or what's spellcheck I don't know. Google Chrome I suspect. I didn't ask for it it's just there.

    It doesn't like 'minnie' either. I can see it's point. :mad:

    Reading you two talking to each other is like an episode of Roger and Val Have Just Got In. Not that I watch Roger and Val Have Just Got In :hmm:

    I don't watch that. And more to the point minnie probably doesn't either in which case you have opened yourself to a world of pain while you try to explain it to her.

    I love her really.

    Minnie definitely doesn't watch it. Apart from anything else, it's BBC2 for goodness sake.

    Why don't you turn spellcheck off? :hmm:

    and why don't you add Minnie to its dictionary? :mad:

    It doesn't bother me that much. I don't know where it is.
