Thirteen or so years ago when I started this business we chose the name Baconsdozen because we were moving to number thirteen and the estate agent kept calling me Mr Baker.(Seemed to make sense at the time).
Now I see 'Baconsdozen' has been chosen as the web site name for an American company listing hotels and a couple of people on facebook.We also had a scammer promising people jobs clearing cheques,working for a firm called Baconsdozen Industrial Ltd.
There are some odd folk about.

We attended a show at an air museum in Flixton Bugay..I'm determined to use the transit a bit more than last year when it really didn't go anywhere.The second picture is of a couple of the trikes at the air museum.This museum is a great place to visit.Planes and relics from two world wars and relatively modern exibits as well.A waste of time trying to describe it there is simply too much to see.These trikes were part of a collection from a visiting motorcycle club.All in all a good day out.

We still keep selling the sou westers.Film companies and the TV people especially (thats the BBC and ITV not transvestites) seem keen on them.The modern materials and designs have their place but these great heavy things do the job of keeping you dry brilliantly.They also have the bonus that wearing one on a boat (preferably a sailing boat) makes you look like you know what you're doing.

This morning Lowestofts trawler basin had a couple of trawlers in it.At one time there would have been half a dozen at any one time,now just two are a rare site.Neither of these will be landing any fish here or employ British crewmen despite having union jacks painted on their sides.These are the so called flag ships,the result of surrendering our fishing grounds in a desperate attempt to appease our european masters.Membership of the EU is said to benefit this country,looking at these boats makes me wonder how.
