Are there any former Saga Zoners on here, mainly south and west midlands areas, who went to lunches in places like Banbury?

Meet ups

The idea of this seems to be good, just click on an interest and off you go, this may be the case for some who have tried but it can also be fraught with rip offs. Apparently Meet Up (faceless/robotic organisation) charge a fee to anyone using them as a launching pad, still trying to find out what this fee is! Then what happens is some individuals have created certain meet ups and charging people a set fee per year. How does this work? I would look at meet ups as something to possibly delve in to now and again, maybe join a few walks or whatever/whenever. Say for arguments sake someone set up a social group and decide to ask £5 per year from anyone joining, they could get 10/20/30 or more, even at 30 at £5 per head they are making £150 yet they could be here today, gone tomorrow, we may have an email address for them or even met them once or twice, but they could disappear in a whisper, of course reading the Meet up site, they don't involve themselves in any disputes with such things so just when something looks to be good it is ripe for fraud. I have asked one person with a group who wanted money up front (to cover his costs!!) to tell me how much he has had to pay the Meet up site but fobbed off...Humm Would you pay a sum up front for joining a meet up?

The moon will be in perigee-syzygy, meaning the closest to earth, and 3 planets line up. For the photographers out there, the best time to take the shot will be around 13:53 gmt, don't miss it or you will have to wait 48 years for the next one.

Cider Making

Primrose House Cider For the last 6 years all of the apples in the orchard at Primrose House have provided the local wildlife with winter food and our 2 sheep, Molly & Polly with their very own winter windfall. So when my neighbour Mike asked me what I was doing with my apples this year I jumped at the chance to make use of them. Mike had planted 300 cider apples trees several years ago and now had apples for cider, he had contacted a local cider maker to press the apples. So all I had to do was pick the apples up and take them round to the farm, several trips in the Landrover and over a ton of apples later, Mike and I got them pressed. We watched the cider maker build the cheese with our apples and the 100 year old cider press did its work. Mike got two ex-whiskey barrels, they hold 57 gallons each, so the ton of apples produced enough cider to fill them both, with plenty left over for Mark at Indnicknowle Farm. We went back a couple of days later to pick up the barrels which had been sugared to start the fermentation process off, with strict instructions on how to protect our home brew. My son-in-law and grandchildren helped me to make the barrel comfortable on its new stillage, but Charley and Ewan are too young to help sample the fruits of our labour. It’s approaching Christmas and the Cider has slowed down now, just a few bubbles now. When it’s ready in March, we’re having a party on the 29.3.15 so an open invite to any Silversurfers, if your down in Devon, drop round for a glass, bring your own food we’ll supply the cider.
