JAKE the spaniel is quite mobile again now. He was having a bit of trouble in the dog department and, what with having a female owner and a female vet, something (or some things) had to go. Now that he's back at full throttle he's looking forward to seeing the ever-lit light on East Fen Common. It's still blazing away all day and nobody knows why. Jake's particularly looking forward to inspecting the nice wide post it's attached to.

Jake was most impressed with the good value the gas board gave the other day when he saw them digging up part of Fordham Road. Yes, the prices may be a bit high, but look what you get for it. A normal company digs a normal depth hole, not this lot. When they needed to dig a hole they started on top of a road hump so we got an extra six or seven inches of hole for the same price. You don't get much for nothing these days!
