This is one of the best summer fete activities I've ever seen. It was 50p a bet and drew a large crowd of eager people keen to bet on the "horses" at the St. Minver church fete, which I stumbled across during a recent holiday in Cornwall.

Why can't skateboarding be an Olympic sport?...

They've done it again! Those idiots at 123-reg, who are the administrators for Tonbridge blog, have taken the site down again. How it can exceed it's bandwidth when I've only been around for about three days of the month is anyone's guess! So over to alternative Tonbridge blog once again, unless I put more coins in the meter. I don't know I come back from holidays in Cornwall all refreshed and bursting with blogs which need to be written to get them all off my chest and I'm frustrated once more. Here's one for you; if Tonbridge were hosting the Olympics what would we put into our eight minute slot at this year's closing ceremony? How about Kelly Holmes singing with Keane with the 2012 GB skateboarding team doing trick jumps outside a makeshift Sainsbury's! Any other thoughts?...
