facebook, new Centre website, more mutterings!

Hi all,

the “new” Centre website can be found at:  https://wessexcentreacu.wixsite.com/wessexcentreacu

many of you are aware I don’t do Facebook. I’ve now found out why I don’t, this apocryphal tale is, I understand, appearing in many places on the internet, I came across it in a Saab related website.

Before I do that though, here’s a few little sporting snippets. SSDT News, Adam Norris has an Entry, so does Tom Culliford, a lot of foreign entries too. We chose not to go & observe Kingswood’s Avery Cup Centre Championship Trial yesterday week, we’d had the East wind blowing  across our garden the day before & decided then that it wouldn’t be smart to go out on Sunday & stand around on cold ground  in a a sub zero temperature (taking the wind chill into account). I’m delighted that all Sections had Observers, hats off to them all. Kurt has carried on winning & could well manage to defend both his Centre Trials Championships when the final Points Tables are published.

The weather is affecting events as you know, Wilts Border cancelled their Trial last Sunday as was the opening Round of the Wessex Plant Hire British Sidecar Trials Championship (down on Dartmoor?). The BSSA Reg Lewis Trial on Sunday 11th March is already cancelled

And now “A seniors perspective of Facebook

For those of my generation who do not, and cannot, comprehend why Facebook exists I am trying to make friends outside of Facebook while applying the same principles.
Therefore, every day I walk down the street and tell passers-by what I have eaten, how I feel at the moment, what I have done the night before, what I will do later and with whom.
I give them pictures of my family, of me gardening, taking things apart in the garage, watering the lawn, standing in front of landmarks, driving around town, having lunch, and doing what anybody and everybody does every day.
I also listen to their conversations, give them the ‘thumbs up’ and tell them I like them.
And it works just like Facebook!   I already have four people following me:

Two police officers, a private investigator and a psychiatrist.”

Well it made us both laugh, & I’m happy not to leave footprints in the worlds server farms for others to track down. I wonder how many of us have given away or told the world where our two wheeled pride & joy is stored without thinking? I had this conversation about thieves, theft& facebook with someone who wanted to renew their Competition Licence just this morning.

Frank
