The Old and the New the Paper and the Plastic

                                                                  The Old and the New.
                                                      The paper versus the Plastic Modern age

Comparison time the old solid 1960s paper fiver, when a fiver really was a fiver

then we have the modern plastic replacement when a fiver well bought you not much more than a cup of coffee and had animal fat content

You decide which is best which is really collectable today and tomorrow....

Brockham Firework Display Spectacular 2015

                                Brockham Spectacular Bonfire and Fireworks Display 2015

Brockham Skys Lit up 2015 Display

I have come to the conclusion a good firework display can be like looking into the universe through the Hubble Telescope.

Have been on several occasions to Brockham Firework Display. Maybe fair to say its the best in Surrey. For instance with over £50,000 of Fireworks on Display the largest rockets actually make the ground beneath you shake.

Last night was certainly no let down but in fact the first time i have walked along with the procession and witnessed the 500 torch carrying bonfire lighters who set the Bonfire ablaze. The guy in the image of Guy Fawkes  was made with excellent attention to detail including the costume and likeness in his face to the original historic pictures.

If its one thing Brockham does well and is renown for its putting on a magnificent Firework and Bonfire display really the best in Surrey probably in the South maybe only surpassed by Lewis in Sussex.
The procession of villagers with their lit Torches dressed up in costume made for a colourful display with the mile or so walk to the edge of the bonfire.

Around sixty feet hire and encompassing all the villages and local community young and old together with years of their experience running such an event each years adds slightly more.

We were warned the Firework display lasting just over 12 minutes would feature some new style fireworks and certainly the mix of colours and Bangs and reverberations in the ground didn't dis appoint. The synchronised sequences were spectacular and the roof tops of Brockham were lit up as was the sky in pinks reds greens blue oranges silhouettes with Bursting flowers of light and dazzle and rocket after rocket lit up the night sky

If you have never been before its a real family treat for all ages

Advert Making Money from Kitchen Rubbish Bin

Just finished speaking to a customer on the phone who likes my product.

They bought for a one off single  payment  of  £19.97   

  A solution to earning extra money in their spare time in their own home using the common sense principles laid out in my  33 page  report. 

 Importantly they didn't buy a scam  a new way of  spread trading  Forex, selling shares to a boiler room, a new gambling system  that beats the bookies or a get rich quick scheme offering them a way  to make millions overnight because this product idea solution wont do that sorry.

But what it will do is restore your confidence help pay off your debts, keep you in touch with reality and find an extra profitable way of reducing your rubbish waste,

How do i know this because when i was deeply in debt the product i created was the way i created an extra badly needed £200 to £300 a month working in my kitchen and my living room using common sense and making extra money

        Making Money from the Kitchen Rubbish Bin  

I might add it doesn't have to be the kitchen bin, it could be any bin. When i discovered the idea to create this product i was sitting in my office. When i made money from the rubbish in the bin i was mainly sitting in the kitchen. The point is it doesn't matter who you are or where you sit you can make some extra badly needed additional income using your nearest Bin. When that runs out well use your neighbours and your friends

In my report which is 33 pages which i sell for £19.97, i make the claim of making £5  from an old cereal box left on the table.. Nothing spectacular about that except like compound interest it multiplies its repeatable so if you have done it once you can do it again and again.

This might be your way out your way up everybodys story is different and unique. Don't let this opportunity pass you by so if your interested and reading this in America then yes this will work for you and i will sell the product to you is Us Dollars $19.97 . If you read this and live in Germany France or Europe yes it will also work for you so i will sell to in  Euros  E19.97 

I want you to but the product not so i get richer, but so you find hope and confidence that this is simple and can work for you.

Payments for the above product can be made via Paypal

Castle Mill Dorking

                  Castle Mill Dorking Picture Postcard

The above Postcard i recently acquired from a Boot Sale in Somerset. Recognising the site immediately as i live just two mile from Dorking. I know the picture was taken prior to 1913 as the Postcard is written and posted in 1913 and i have identified the three people in the Picture leaning on the gate overlooking the pond and the little boy are dressed in Edwardian attire. So it could be the picture was taken around 1910.

Obviously the person who write the card was on some kind of break and as the English do and have always done a mention of the weather doesn't  go amiss.

Written Postcard evidence of the date of the Picture which is earlier than 1913
