If there's one thing I love about the 'Shotley, Chelmondiston, Pin Mill, Woolverstone & Erwarton Community News' (apart from the snappy title, obviously), it's that they're always first with the big stories.

In October they carried a front page story advising people to register their opposition to a local housing development by the end of September. Right underneath the October 1st date heading. Back then of course, they were known as the 'Shotley, Pin Mill, Chelmondiston, Woolverstone & Erwarton Community News', an ungainly title, which they understandably changed one month later to the 'Shotley, Chelmondiston, Pin Mill, Woolverstone & Erwarton Community News'. It made all the difference, and I for one applaud them for it.

But anyway, they've struck again with the new issue, which has arrived at my flat this afternoon with the front page headline "We're Coming Your Way..." and an article informing me that the council's 'Sort It Crew' will be touring my area and knocking on doors "over the coming months".

To be forewarned is to have four arms. Or something. It's just a shame the news is two weeks late. But hey, you can't have everything.

Incidentally, I've received a hit today for the words "millionaire looking for a tax write off". It turns out I'm ranked #1 on Yahoo for those words, out of 211,000 sites. Which is undoubtedly good news. It's clearly only a matter of time before I'm rich.
