Some of our members renew in full every year. Thank you to those of you who have renewed already; it improves the cash flow. Those who fail to renew by the end of January forfeit their membership so please don’t delay. None of this applies of course to those who pay by standing order. Thank you for your support.

This week’s offerings:
From the Uxbridge English Dictionary: Aggregate…………….farming scandal
A devout catholic drops some buttered toast on the kitchen floor and it lands butter-side-up. He looks down in astonishment, for he knows that it’s a law of the universe that buttered toast always falls butter-side down. He tells his priest that a miracle has occurred in his kitchen.
He says, “It’s not for me to declare a miracle. I’ll have to report this matter to the Bishop and he’ll have to deal with it”.
A thorough investigation is conducted, not only by the archdiocese but by scientists sent over from the Curia in Rome.
Then, after 8 long weeks and with great fanfare, the Bishop announces the final ruling.
“Unfortunately, in this case, it has been declared ‘No Miracle’ because that there is insufficient evidence as to whether or not the toast was buttered on the correct side in the first place!”
