  • Just been listening to radio 4 where I heard a new concept of “green roots”.

  • If I were in an economist or property speculator (or both of which I’m sure there are plenty), bearing in mind the current economic state that we’re in, I’d be more worried about this than excited.

    Good luck !

    Half a league half a league,
    Half a league onward,
    All in the valley of Death
    Rode the six hundred:
    ‘Forward, the Light Brigade!
    Charge for the guns’ he said:
    Into the valley of Death
    Rode the six hundred.

    ‘Forward, the Light Brigade!’
    Was there a man dismay’d ?
    Not tho’ the soldier knew
    Some one had blunder’d:
    Theirs not to make reply,
    Theirs not to reason why,
    Theirs but to do & die,
    Into the valley of Death
    Rode the six hundred.

    Cannon to right of them,
    Cannon to left of them,
    Cannon in front of them
    Volley’d & thunder’d;
    Storm’d at with shot and shell,
    Boldly they rode and well,
    Into the jaws of Death,
    Into the mouth of Hell
    Rode the six hundred.

    Flash’d all their sabres bare,
    Flash’d as they turn’d in air
    Sabring the gunners there,
    Charging an army while
    All the world wonder’d:
    Plunged in the battery-smoke
    Right thro’ the line they broke;
    Cossack & Russian
    Reel’d from the sabre-stroke,
    Shatter’d & sunder’d.
    Then they rode back, but not
    Not the six hundred.

    Cannon to right of them,
    Cannon to left of them,
    Cannon behind them
    Volley’d and thunder’d;
    Storm’d at with shot and shell,
    While horse & hero fell,
    They that had fought so well
    Came thro’ the jaws of Death,
    Back from the mouth of Hell,
    All that was left of them,
    Left of six hundred.

    When can their glory fade?
    O the wild charge they made!
    All the world wonder’d.
    Honour the charge they made!
    Honour the Light Brigade,
    Noble six hundred!

  • Overheard at a barbie this weekend:
    “It’s strange that you builders aren’t gettting any work, with everyone saving so much on their mortgages.
    You can’t get any return on your savings so I’m just going to invest in improvements to my home. I’ll get it back soon as the market is recovering”.

  • Why is a 1.1 percent increase in houseprices a ‘jump’, while a 1.6 percent fall in the annual data only an ‘ease’?

    Kind of reveals the journal/journalists agenda, no?

    Despite all this nonsence, I still get the impression EAs are desperate. In addition to Rightmove’s “Property Deal Weekly” magazine, I noticed one EA post on the website for a house in Stockport: “‘Cottage style’ and well presented 2 bedroom mid terrace which absolutely, 100%, without any shadow of doubt, MUST BE VIEWIED!”

    Classic!

    I’m sure it’s just the industry trying to grab a few headlines, and kid us all that things are picking up, expect “worse than expected” figures in a few months due to the current fraudulent massaging
