The Ghost Writer, the petition to save Powys Citizens Advice Bureau and a man on the phone.
The Ghost Writer was in his place of work yesterday as he had to move the server, he hates moving this as it must be one of the last of the old NT4 servers working away doing its bit on the front line in
But as the Ghost Writer has said loads of times . . . . . . A cat dropped from a great height can’t catch
mice until it lands on the ground. . . . . . He insists it is one of
those strange saying that folk use all the time although I cant think of anyone
else who says it. Anyway he set off
earlier than he needed too because the weather was wet seriously wet. Us Brits
are good at complaining about the weather, but just for once we have good
reason too as it is rare to see so much flooding for this long. Britain
As the Ghost Writer wandered into his office in his usual chirpy fashion (OK his normal grumpy self) there was a quiet pause and folk looked at him. As it happens he has this effect a lot when he walks into places I think it’s his ramshackle dishevelled image and bits of stuff falling off him that does it; on this occasion though it was due to news that had been received. You see the Ghost Writer works for a charity and the core funding of this charity comes from Powys County Council who are trying or need to save 20 million pounds so one of the things they have decided is to stop funding charities, well the one the Ghost Writer works for anyway. It will not save a lot of money about one hundred thousand pounds, but the Ghost Writer is a cynical as well as grumpy chap and says he suspects that the council will target the folk with the least voices so the likes of folk in need of help, disabled and homeless and the like first . . . . . He may be wrong though and they might make all the directors and managers redundant at the council instead. . . . . . . . Hang on what was that I saw . . . . . . . . . . . . . OOooooooooo look it’s a flying pig.
Interestingly as a change of subject I answered the phone this morning and spoke to a very nice man from
that someone at our house had been in an accident in the last three years and
was entitled to loads of compensation from the Ministry of Justice. He seemed
like a nice chap and I was not in a rush to rush off anywhere so I had a long
chat; however he started to get a bit annoyed because I was not responding
correctly to his questions, and in the end accused me of wasting his time and
then he hung up which was rather rude. India
It has been raining again today and it is due to rain tomorrow followed by heavy rain on Saturday. Anyway in order to tie in my drawing all I can say is I feel sorry for any fire breathing dragons at present, it is just not the weather to help them one bit.
For those that are interested below is an online petition for people to sign that will help the Ghost Writers cause in gaining support for the Charity he works for . . . Powys Citizens Advice Bureau . . . . . . Although a national organisation each bureau is very dependent on local funding for core bureau funding. Without the core funding all the other projects it supports can not exist.
