Attended Purple Flag kickstart meeting today, at Weymouth and Portland Borough Council offices. Loads of movers and shakers there, with plenty of great ideas, to make Weymouth safer and more welcoming at night - with huge potential benefits to local businesses and visitors alike.
Just imagine, say, 5% more turnover on the existing £120million gross annual tourism income - well worth the effort! Fingers crossed it takes off!

PRS for Music chase small businesses for playing music in public, never mind if that is in the privacy of your guesthouse room, regardless of stated intent to not chase small businesses, despite PPL agreement not to harass small guesthouses below 12 rooms - how can they have the sheer cheek to allegedly support #smallbizsaturday ! They are the enemies of small business! Instead, they support the super-rich music mega-moguls and twist and torture the law to do it. Would you book a hotel room if you had to allow any stranger off the street into your room any time they choose - just because PRS claim it is a public place? Really? Time to clip their wings and say - if you are not a music promoter or a music venue and you pay ypur tv licence then that is enough. Why pay 2 oor 3 licences for the same music? It is plain ridiculous - and greedy.

We just added a Facebook- App from FreeToBook on our FB page. We like FreeToBook, mainly because the diary is so much easier to use than, for example, booking.com but also because they do not charge massive commissions on bookings and dictate how you should run your own business. We also dislike the way booking.com "peak" interest by falsely claiming fewer rooms are available, or prices are 70% lower than they really are and so on. Anyway, we hope visitors will find our site and book the simple and easy way - directly with us (less hassle and 10% off for 2 or more nights booked by phone).

Visible and thermal infrared images of a Chieftain tank, courtesy of Bovington Museum, during camouflage trials on the tank proving grounds at Bovington Camp. Visibly - the colours were intended for Pakistan. Thermally, the "brown" was too reflective, appearing black in the thermal image, hence "unnatural". Slightly "overdone" treatment intended to counter barrel heating due to firing and/or flexing whie driving. Paint effects and durability good otherwise, including standing up to squaddies' boots! Trials took place, july 1999, yours truly designed and applied the camo, Bovington Camp staff drove the tank and Qinetiq staff filmed in infrared. Budget £84,000. Actual cost £45,000. Project success!
