PERHAPS YOU HAD BETTER FIND YOUR OWN NEWS IN FUTURE BECAUSE WE MAKE MISTAKES!

As is always the same when our work appears somewhere else, we received a phone call informing us that the article in the picture below had appeared in the Ross Journal six hours before the newspaper had dropped through our door. 'How did they get hold of it?' Asked the caller.

When I did eventually hear the plop as it landed on the doormat, rather than do the usual and put it straight on the pile to give to the Hedgehog Rescue Centre, as the design of our house puts the loo very close to the letter box, needing a break, I took a seat and read the whole Ross-on-Wye page. I can only guess that the news ripping fairy must have contrived the article in question from the written up interview and video interview, which took place in our garden and had been published here, on 'Wyenot News' a few days beforehand.

Rewording an article written by somebody else is not quite the same as writing it yourselves. The problem is you see, the mistakes get copied too. Just like when at school, the cheat always got found out for having the same wrong answers in exams as the boy / girl sitting next to him / her. It just so happens that nobody was with us, taking in the view of our magnificent, environmentally friendly garden as we sat in front of the pond, admiring the frogs and speaking to Jack Baldus about Jamstand 2009.

Going back to the week before, we published that 'some 50 proud vintage motorcycle owners' turned out at the Motorcycle Display. Sorry about that one (story above Jamstand), our mistake, we neglected to mention that they brought 91 bikes with them. We also mentioned Harley Davidsons, which we did not actually notice at the time. Come to think of it, I don't think there was a Harley in sight, so that was also a mistake on our part. Sorry about that one too. Our photos of the event did show side cars though, so it is quite reasonable to assume that, 'some with sidecars' turned up for the show.

We will try our very best to get the story right this coming Thursday, when Neil Armstrong, the first man on the moon is due to give his talk, 'READING THE ROSS JOURNAL IN 1/6 G' at the Larruperz Centre, and on Friday, when Jack is due to negotiate figures with Mick Jagger for the Stones performance at the Jamstand finalé.


This story was not given to the Journal - it came from an interview with Jack Baldus which took place in our house.
