Re: New Aldi approved in Bell Green

A rat crept softly through the vegetation
Dragging its slimy belly on the bank
While I was fishing in the dull canal
On a winter evening round behind the gashouse
Musing upon the king my brother's wreck
And on the king my father's death before him.

Re: Dentist

We have used the Bolney Court practice in Lawrie Park Road for over thirty years and have been very pleased with them.

Re: A Leaf out of East Dulwich Forum's book?

I wish that in selecting pseudonyms people would avoid using three capital letters beginning with 'J. There seem to be hordes of them; I always get them confused and can't remember which of them are goodies and which baddies, or which gender they are. (There seems to be a new one called 'JRM' ?)

Re: STF Users Meeting - arranged 1pm Sunday (NOT 12 noon)

I shall be there in spirit, and I hope there is a constructive outcome. (I'm afraid I'm feeling too old, deaf and set in my ways to venture forth in person at Sunday lunchtime to a meeting in what will no doubt be a noisy and crowded pub at the other end of Sydenham!)

Re: A Leaf out of East Dulwich Forum's book?

From what I have seen, a lot of the problems on forums stem from a culture where others comment on the opinion of others rather than simply posting their own opinion....A simple “I disagree, my opinion is this..” rather than calling out other posters. I thought discussing different opinions was one...

Yes. Or at any rate I was the last time I looked.

Sorry. I mean, yes, I self-identify as a cisgender male.
Perhaps that makes a difference
So they say.

Re: A Leaf out of East Dulwich Forum's book?

Re anonymity, though, I'd be highly reluctant if I had to sign my full name. I mean, I'm generally careful about what I post on here, but if I had to post my real name someone could get hold of the phone directory and locate me precisely, and I'm not keen on that idea: I might have said something a...

Re: A Leaf out of East Dulwich Forum's book?

. If STF was willing to sacrifice the anonymity - in the way that has been done on SE23.life, then I suspect Sydenham Society might more readily engage with the revamped forum. I agree. Although I can understand that some posters may have personal reasons for wanting to remain anonymous, I think on...

Someone who lives nearby has now told me it was a serious injury rather than a fatality.

Kirkdale closed Thursday 27 September

Kirkdale is closed between Dartmouth Road and Sydenham Park, and is likely to be so for some time, I heard from a policeman. No buses. Motorcyclist fatally (I heard) injured at Kirkdale/Wells Park Road junction.

TV filming in Baxter Fields/Radlet Avenue today

For the second time in a week - last time they were filming at Camden Lodge, one of our posh bungalows. For a TV commercial, apparently. I estimate there are about forty people in the crew, of which at any one time about two are actually doing something (typically moving equipment or props around) a...

Re: Mayow road/Sydenham road crossing.

I assumed that the rationale was that disabled people (particularly those with a sensory impairment?) prefer to have a safe crossing period marked by visual and aural signs than to have to move out on to an ordinary zebra crossing and hope someone will notice them.

Re: Mayow road/Sydenham road crossing.

I have a vague memory of being told that one of the reasons for having traffic lights at pedestrian crossings in Sydenham Road is because it makes life a lot easier for disabled or wheelchair-using pedestrians.

Re: St Philip Neri Meeting - Thursday 19 July 7pm

I wonder to whom in the archdiocese the request to attend was sent? The Education Commission (http://www.educationcommission.org.uk/) is based at St Paul's Cray, and, according to the current Southwark Catholic Directory, the lead building officer is Mike Baldwin. I wonder if anyone tried to speak t...
