There's not a lot to say about Spennymore. Wetherspoon's was good. We caught the bus to Durham.
Our annual pilgrimage to Ossett Brewery. Only not last year for obvious reasons. Very popular. All for Forget-Me-Not. Bands as well.
Times Aug 7th, Rose Wild (feedback). 'Please don't call us Pensioners'. A column that receives its fair share of complaints about writing style and vocabulary. Some good things too.
Dates for receiving a pension are variable. And, strictly, this refers to the state pension. 'Retiree' is no better. 'Seniors' was an alternative suggested by Philip Burt. Officially, this refers to golfers and tennis players who no longer play in the main tournaments. 'Aged' and 'elderly' are sensitive as most over 65s are fit and well and likely to remain so for some time.
'Older people' is the least worst term.

A three week makes-a-difference plan - good luck.
- Four 30-40 minute strength sessions per week
- Daily 30-50 minutes cardio
- Stretch 10 minutes daily
AND - don't drink beer. 2 small bottles is the same as a cheeseburger. Slimline gin and tonic instead.
After three weeks, shoot yourself.
