Sweet Beet, Tweet and Bonne Nuit

Good news for local farmers who feared fines for failing factory quotas of 95% annual allocation of sugar beet. British Sugar won't enforce future decrease in contracted tonnage after much of the local beet has been deemed unprocessible


Congratulations to local girl Ruby Kerridge who has used Twitter to hopefully get the X Factor's Aiden Grimshaw to perform a gig in Norfolk. Known as a Twitition, a portmanteau word or blend of Twitter and petition, Ruby already has 1000+ Twititioners.

And at last there was some sunshine today, right to the end of the day as the sun disappears behind South Pickenham Hall.

Norfolk firm Flights of Fantasy, based in King's Lynn, has built a playhouse for two lucky children for their Christmas present, at a cool £150,000 (but that does include P&P!)


In Pickenham, we call that a house.

Weather warning

I heard reports of some snow falling in King's Lynn this morning with talk of a few flurries forecast for Friday.

Not two feet of snow, though.
