I received my free copy of 'Babergh Matters!' today (the cheery exclamation mark is part of the title - they even use it when they're referring to themselves in articles about domestic violence). This latest issue of the district council's magazine contains an article entitled:


It begins, "Efforts to increase the number of affordable houses in local villages received a boost in September when Babergh planners gave the go ahead for..."

For what, I hear you cry? For a dynamic new town in the Suffolk countryside? For a modern housing estate? For a couple of blocks of flats?

No... "for five homes in Upper Layham."

As Ian Tippett, Babergh District Council's Housing Enabling Manager, proudly declares: "Babergh and its partners are pulling out the stops to build new affordable homes."

Notice he doesn't say ALL the stops. Presumeably because pulling out all the stops might involve building more than five homes. It's no wonder I can't get a council house around here.

But in other news, I've received a hit from MSN Search for the question "Can God create a rock too heavy for him to lift?". It turns out I'm the number 4 web resource for that issue out of 35,485 sites, so at least I have a new career as a theologian.
