    Reading an article on AOL news written by 'The Motley Fool' it states 'Retirees spend £26,000 a year'
    Somehow I do not think that applies to all retirees ...  Exclamation

    Indeed there are many families, who are not retirees, who may not even see £26,000 a year.

    I'd not heard of The Tweed Rides Before but:

    I Say Old Chap, What’s All This About, Then?

    Tweed Rides are minimum-exertion, maximum-elegance jaunts for the stylish lady and gentleman cyclist about town. We usually meet in a park or café then go for a sociable pootle in our rainy city. Picnics, pints and pottering are just a few of our favourite things, and if they’re yours too, we would be honoured if you could join us soon.

    Don’t worry if you don’t have a vintage steed and a wardrobe full of tweeds – we’re a relaxed bunch and whilst we admire and appreciate a bit of effort, our motto is: “it’s more about the attitude than the attire”!

    The Tweed Run is a group bicycle ride through the centre of London, in which the cyclists are expected to dress in traditional British cycling attire, particularly tweed plus four suits. Any bicycle is acceptable on the Tweed Run, but classic vintage bicycles are encouraged. Some effort to recreate the spirit of a bygone era is always appreciated. The ride dubs itself "A Metropolitan Cycle Ride With a Bit of Style."

    These rides also take place in other cities

    Yes, Winter does seem to hang around far more than it used to.

    I also think we used to have more definite seasons. These days they do seem to almost combine themselves and have become mixed up no matter what part of the world you may live.

    What I love about us Brits is the way we do talk about the weather, and long may we continue to do so!

    I asked the grandchildren, was it sunny today ... I was hoping it was because there were June Carnival Celebrations around and that means FUN!

    Neighbours were having great fun today ... and we watched from a distance ... well bouncy castles aren't quite our scene. LOL!

    This bouncy castle was a little different, stairs on one side which the kiddies climbed up and then slid down the other side ... such fun, but what I want to know is why do they always have so much fun trying to climb up the sliding part (with great difficulty) when stairs are provided ...

    You always see similar in parks ...  some things never change Laughing

    These neighbours also have the most amazing roses yellow, pinks, reds they are amazing, apparently it's a good year for Roses! Have you any growing?

    Every time I turn round there are more roses out. Some took a bit of a battering in the recent storms but they are fighting back in profusion, the wild ones in the hedges too.

    Today - 24th June 2017 - is armed forces day in the UK.

    "Armed Forces Day is a chance to show your support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community: from currently serving troops to Service families, veterans and cadets. There are many ways for people, communities and organisations across the country to show their support and get involved, from attending an event or joining us online to throwing a party or local event."

    https://www.armedforcesday.org.uk/about/

    The 2017 National Event will be held in the heart of Liverpool on Saturday 24 June, but many towns and villages hold their own event in order to come together to acknowledge the hard work and sacrifice of those that serve....

    All the best Jan
