In the original native culture of Thailand , when males reached the age of 18 they had to participate in the following community ceremony:
They lay themselves face-up stark naked in a large circle, feet facing inward. Beautiful young naked girls facing outward kneel over the ankles of each of the men.
Each places a blob of honey and various crushed sweet fruits around the young man’s navel to attract flies and insects.(This keeps them off his face during the ceremony.)
A specially chosen nubile and very beautiful naked girl then does a sexy and sensuous dance in the centre of the circle.
As soon as all the men become fully aroused, the kneeling girls then reach over the knees, pull the erect penises downwards as much as they can and then, on a given signal from the centre dancer, release them.
The men's penises would then spring back up and go "WHAP!" against their belly buttons.
This exercise was a measurement of the strength of their masculinity . . .The man who killed the most flies was elected to the court of the King.
And that, folks, is why the capital of Thailand came to be named Bangkok.
I bet you never knew this.

Thanks for that link. I'm happy to hear that Tesco has scrapped its plans but sorry to hear that the building is now empty.

Wish my ancestors had left it to me in their will  ;) .

Dai proposed to Megan and it had been accepted. "But", added Megan, "before we get married I must tell you something dreadful about my
past life."

"No," said Dai, "I won't hear of it. You can tell me after we're married."

After they were married and had set off for their honeymoon in Porthcawl, Megan again brought up the subject of her "dreadful secret".

"No," said Dai, "it can wait. Tell me when we're in bed together, that'll be soon enough."

That night as they got into bed Megan declared "Well, Dai, now I really do have to tell you my secret. You see, I'm a virgin."

Dai didn't say a word but put on his clothes and travelled all the way back to his mother's house.

"Dai!" said his mother, "what are you doing here, you're supposed to be on your honeymoon."

"It's no good", said Dai, "I've had to leave Megan; it turns out she's a virgin."

"Well, Dai," said his mother, "in that case you were quite right to come home.

If she's not good enough for the rest of the village she's not good enough for you."

Interesting news OC - I've been watching Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's programs on Monday evenings and they featured Fareshare and similar ideas. The program's quite an eyeopener.
Which channel is that on Pete?

We shouldn't be reduced for the need of Soup kitchens in the UK.
Ruthless, heartless people in power and seems they have cloth ears - we are going back in years here.

Well folks here we are!
We have arrived now at a stage where we now need Soup Kitchen's!
The UK is going backwards!!!! -
Or is it a good idea???

Community groups invited to visit super kitchen event
10 November 2015

Derbyshire's first Super Kitchen social eating event will take place this week. It's part of a partnership project to create community eating spaces and tackle food poverty using surplus supermarket produce.

We're supporting Super Kitchens in partnership with surplus food redistribution charity FareShare East Midlands and Eudaimonia, a charity that runs the kitchens and other sustainable social projects.

The social eating event will be hosted on Friday 13 November 2015 by Holmgate Church in Clay Cross, which is the first local group to sign up to the scheme. It plans to open its Super Kitchen − Derbyshire's first − in the new year.

Organisers are inviting community groups such as youth clubs, food banks and charities who may be interested in setting up their own branch to go along for a look round, meet staff and enjoy a free social eating dinner.

In July we approved £8,000 to help set up Super Kitchens in each Derbyshire district and borough council area in venues including churches, children's centres and schools.

The system uses surplus food that would have been thrown away by supermarkets to provide residents with a hot nutritious, low-cost meal cooked by volunteers.

Our Cabinet Member for Health and Communities Councillor Dave Allen said:

"As part of our work to tackle poverty we've been very impressed with the Super Kitchen system so were keen to approve funding to set it up in Derbyshire.

"We're delighted that the first group to sign up is hosting Friday's social eating event and we're keen for anyone interested in starting a Super Kitchen to come along and see what it's all about to get more branches open across Derbyshire as soon as possible.

"Lack of proper nutrition affects people's physical and mental health and in the long term this will cause huge pressures on health and social care costs so there's an economic as well as a moral case for us to take preventative action to address food poverty."

Super Kitchens originated in Nottingham and scheme organisers are now supporting plans to roll them out across Derbyshire.

Scheme founder Marsha Smith said:

"We'd very much like groups and organisations interested in starting up a Super Kitchen to come along to the opening and bring their colleagues. Family members and local residents are welcome too.

"Super Kitchens are already working well in Nottingham and we're looking forward to working with the county council and FareShare to see them develop in Derbyshire."

We recently approved £528,550 to work in partnership with a range of agencies on a 'Feeding Derbyshire' strategy to find sustainable solutions to food poverty and feed people struggling with low incomes and benefit delays.

Support for local Super Kitchens is part of the plan which also includes setting up a food depot in Derbyshire operated by FareShare East Midlands. It would supply food banks and community kitchens with perishable food such as fresh fruit and vegetables, dairy produce and meat.

Other projects include support for food banks and school breakfast clubs and setting up a mobile food shop and affordable food box scheme.

The Super Kitchen social eating event will take place on Friday 13 November 2015 at Holmgate Church, Valley Road, Clay Cross, Derbyshire, S45 9QF between 5pm and 7pm.

Groups, organisations or residents who would like to attend should email:

Chesterfield Discussion / Re: Walton Hospital what are they doing?

Not to me Fly - well not 'there' anyway, I didn't realise building was going to be so close to the hospital - just a  foot path between the hospital and where they were drilling down.

Any plans to view of the proposed housing?

Do the locals know who is doing this?

Yes - so they say.
I know the person they have been known for it for years.

On the local site feelings run high at times by some but a witch hunt isn't the right way to do things is it?

Round the back where the new entrance is to the side of the buildings there is a large grass area.
Very tall yellow machine looked as if they were drilling down - what are they doing - anyone know?

It's sad that some missed it because of poor advertising though don't you think?

Or was it deliberate to stop the crowds gathering?

The email below was sent to me by Action Fraud.
It states that hackers could have accessed bank account details - on the news at 5.00pm today they said Talk Talk claimed that access to banking details were not got into to

Have they or haven't they?

We took a reading from our account today in town and up to now it's OK

Cyber Attack
Talk Talk, the phone and broadband provider, has been the victim of a cyber attack on their website commonly referred to as DDoS – distributed denial of service attack. This has led to hackers accessing Talk Talks servers and stealing personal data, which could affect over four million customers. It is currently unknown exactly what data has been stolen but Talk Talk has stated that there is a chance that some of the following data could have been accessed:
Name and addresses
Dates of birth
Email addresses
Telephone numbers
Talk Talk account information
Credit card and banking details
Protect yourself
Be wary of any emails claiming to be from Talk Talk asking for additional information such as passwords even if they are able to tell you specific account details – this could be a phishing email and sent to gain access to your account.
If you have opened an email attachment please ensure you change the passwords for all your bank, email and online shopping accounts.
As well as e-mails be wary of any telephone calls claiming to be from Talk Talk that ask for additional information or want to gain remote access to your computer. Again they may tell you specific details about your account. If you get such a call do not give any details, terminate the call, use a separate telephone line/mobile phone and call Talk Talk back on one of their known numbers to ascertain if the call is genuine.
Monitor your bank accounts for any unusual activity that you believe may be fraudulent.
