…..if you moor at Aristotle Lane on the South Oxford canal there are those, who live in brick, who think that boaters are the bottom of the pile. They take photos and record mooring times complain to the council about a puff of smoke from your chimney. They worry about the ‘pollution’ affecting their children’s health.
I moored at Aristotle Lane twice in the last few weeks (27/05 and 07/06). On two days I didn’t light my fire. I don’t think I lit the fire on other days until the evening (I might be wrong). However, Whilst I was there I did notice that ‘children’ were smoking dope in the park. I would think this is much more serious than me lighting my fire!
The canal is not going away. Move the park!

After reading this article in the Mail Online about Bridget Bardot I made an entry in the comments page, “So lets see if I understand this a French woman get vilified in the courts for telling the truth.” or words to that effect.
Two people who read my comment ‘liked’ it (see below).
I clicked on the link again to see if there were any other comments in the pipeline. I was confronted by this (see below) on the comments page. I don’t mind that they are no longer taking comments, but I do mind that they deleted the two comments that were there.

Several times over the last couple of years I have complained to the council about the rubbish bins at Hythe Bridge and the rats in the garden behind. Finally the garden has gone and the rubbish disposal has been rebuilt. Well done OCC.
Unfortunately only the residential boaters have keys. So now with the locked elsan disposal point the only people who can use the facilities are the 13 boats that are residential and those who live on the mill stream. The Mill stream dwellers are privy to keys for the elsan, probably the rubbish point too. Whilst this might not seem fair, at least the Mill Stream dwellers are not tempted to dump shit in the stream.
