Not gilt-y?

We should celebrate South Devon building firm Midas Homes. Hurrah! It’s won plaudits and awards for its eco homes in South Molton (North Devon, boo). And we at the People’s Republic of South Devon want to know more - we’ve even asked for an interview, only to hear stony-clad silence.

Think of a neutron

Johnny Ball is a strong supporter of nuclear energy. And why not? He knows about science him - he did, after all, present a science programme on kids’ tele in the 80s.

Take to the air

A380 evacuation! Have they given up on the transport links to South Devon? No. It was some big plane that’s called the A380. Next there’ll be a plane called the Kingskerswell Bypass, but I suppose, like the Spruce Goose it’ll never be built. Either way the carbon count is going up and up and up. Carbon emission targets, anyone? Intergrated transport policy? Sorry, more non-flyers.

What’s your number?

We’ve all been there, trying to hold together our split plastic bags and punching in our pin number, while the checkout girl self-consciously hides her eyes with her fat little fingers.

The writing’s on the wall

grafitti saying: take care guys syphilis and HIV is being transmitted through oral sex

Just in case Shadrak and Obendigo fancied getting it on after being turned on reading rude grafitti, some kind soul has penned a warning about oral sex.

Take a bow (tie)

Do you want to go along to the Oscars and wear big bow ties like those Aardman Animations fellas?
Of course you do.
