  1. Gavin Turk, sculptor, worked here. He even created a blue plaque to remind himself of the fact. http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-44718749.html For once, the agent is justified in calling a flat "unique". I might go mad if I had to spend a night there, but it is in a class of its own ...
  2. Merthyr Tydfil sticks out like a sore thumb - 20% up y.o.y. (But the numbers are distorted, it seems) http://www.guardian.co.uk/money/2013/jan/29/house-prices-creep-up-2012-land-registry
  3. Thailand has become famous a great place to go for affordable, top quality medial treatment. What's to stop China from creating the same kind of offering?
  4. I got talking with a retired couple at a Christmas party - both taking university courses. I wonder if they were also benefiting from a permanent loan. Sheesh.
  5. The local estate agent quoted in the BBC article seems to agree with you. I wonder why they didn't select this for their headline:
  6. People are strange, when you're a stranger. Facebook looks ugly, when you're alone.
  7. Evictions create a homeless crisis in Spain: (NYTimes) http://www.nytimes.com/2012/11/12/world/europe/spain-evictions-create-an-austerity-homeless-crisis.html?hp&_r=0&gwh=F88AE3944655501C5D9F5A28B394E719
  8. 4. Thorium reactors still need some uranium as a "seed" source of neutrons, so you still need uranium (but much less)
  9. They have my sympathy. It must be hard to explain a noise problem to a deaf person. Oh.
  10. Love the "Keep Sandbach Historical" sign. But what period of history should we return them to? Wikipedia tells me that "Traces of Settlement are found in Sandbach from Saxon times the town was then called Sanbec, during this time little is known about the town apart from the fact that there were Welsh and Danish raids frequently". So perhaps they would like us to re-instate the rape and pillage of that era?
