Local shops for local people

1. I went to have a look at the coffee-and-ice-cream-shop-in-doomed-location. Sadly, I think it would be doomed if it weren't in a doomed location, it wasn't clear what sort of coffee they had and the ice cream looked uninspiring.

2. On the other hand, the bookshop managed to get a copy of The Apocalypse Codex in one day - not very surprising but I was experimenting with getting books from the local bookshop, which I assume pays UK tax unlike certain large on-line stores.

3. Another estate agent has closed - next to the deli. I weep bitter tears.

4. At some point I should organise Big Society Bingo - guess which box people in Waitrose put their green token in (the money is split between 3 local causes based on the percentage of tokens dropped into 3 boxes). Currently ahead in the 2 Waitroses are (a) buying a digital projector for the local theatre / cinema (b) some cancer charity or other. Winner to be chosen by least mean squares or similar.
