Wood Green chitter-chatter..

Doom Bar is now being served in the Ranelagh.

No fox shit seen around my way for ages.

The platform renovation is progressing nicely at AP station.

Fuck the local paper, this is gold.

Fellow long term locals may remember this pub.. the Freemasons Arms at the west end of Lordship Lane. Shut since 2007 I see some scaffolding has gone up this week.. Conversion into affordable flats awaits I suspect.

Went to the Green this morning. Some woman gave me a flyer for the Dominion Church on the high st, the one opposite the cinema. What's that 'church' all about?

Not sure I know the one. Is is also a breakfast bar? Always get confused between the post-office arcde bit, and the arcade bit in Shopping City.. Suss it out one day. Think the cafe is in Shopping City - near Wikinsons. Cafe does decent breakfasts.

Was down the Green yesterday and it was surprisingly civilised. What I don;t understand is why every fucker seems to have a pushchair with a screaming child in it. And they just take them in to shops like they own the place! There is a time and a place people.

We're off to Wood Green today. we'll probably walk up to Turnpike Lane and have one in the Spoons to fortifyl ourselves, ready to battle the pavements north to shopping city.
We might not even make it all the way there. Might just do M&S, the big green bookshop and lidl.

Now demolished. Interestingly the pub was apparently squatted several times over the last couple years- including one 'loud party'.

What's happening with the Queens Head down by Turnpike Lane? It's all boarded up but there was still a fella supping a can or lager in the front beer garden when I strolled past this arvo.

Averted a major Health and Safety incident in Morrisons today.. water all over the floor in the vegetable section - only 1 yelllow cone!!!

Pointed this out to a Morrisons staff member.. he said 'oh my God' - got a mop - and cleaned up the water hazard.

Doing a good deal on Muller Light 'vanilla sprinkled with dark chocolate' yoghurts atm. Bought 4 - eaten 2 all ready.. only 60 cals per pot - so not so bad.

Good stuff, Hollis :cool:

The bridge reinforcement work by AP station is almost complete. The temporary traffic lights have been taken down, and the W3 bus stops have been reopened. The new pavement/road configuration on that bridge is rather exciting.

Its vanished completely now. Wouldn't have known it was there.

Was on the 243 to Stokie tonight so got to see over the fence. They're still clearing the site at present.

UFO Sighting

The Tottenham, Wood Green and Edmonton Journal is reporting a spate of UFO sightings this week. Muswell Hill and Edmonton so far " a mystery orange fire-like globe" apparently. - So keep your eyes out guys - the Space Aliens are close by. :)

Wow! Wood Green chitter-chatter thread ramping up a notch then. I for one have felt their presence in the area for a while but then again it maybe something I got from the morrisons fish counter passing through my system.

I have seen this sometimes when riding along Park Rd. It's not a UFO. I figured it was some kind of weather thing.
