Saturday 5th January

Someone came out with the expression ‘If you see a Rainbow in the sky there won’t be any flooding’.

After all of the floods recently I’m not sure it is a valid saying.

On investigation ..

The Bible says the following in Genesis 9:13-15.

“I set My rainbow in a cloud, and it shall be for the sign of the covenant [promise] between Me and the earth. It shall be, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the rainbow shall be seen in the cloud; and I will remember My covenant which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh.”

God said that the rainbow was a sign that He would never again kill over the entire Earth and all living creatures with a flood. It does not mean that floods will never happen. It simply means He would never again destroy the entire Earth with a flood



A woman popped in for directions as she had been diverted on the way from Dulverton and she wanted to head in the direction to Tiverton to then pick up the M5.

After we had told her the way to go she then asked if we had bottle recycling in Bampton.

She had been staying in Dulverton for over a week and had accumulated a few empties.

When she stopped at the recycling centre between Dulverton & Brushford she was amazed that she was expected to pay £2 for the privilege of handing over her bottles.

She then set off for the car park to dispose of her bottles before heading home.


I spotted another ‘famous’ person that had died recently.

You might not recognise the name but you surely must remember the song.

Here’s a clue..



Talking about dogs, a lady came in the shop carrying her dog as she thought would overcome the problem of the ‘No Dogs Allowed’ sign on the door.

She was wrong and we told her!

As I was closing up the shop I spotted this fellow on the door.


It must have been warmer than I thought.

I had packed my wasp zapper away for the winter so I had to make use of a Post office brochure to end its life instead.


It was good to see the Tiverton Town football pitch looking better than it was a fortnight ago.


On returning from the football I watched the days racing and it was great to see a locally owned and trained horse win a Grade 1 race at Sandown.

The chaps that own the horse have the fabrication business in Bampton

And I spotted them celebrating their win on the telly.


While we were out last night someone said that if they see a dead animal that have to hold onto their collar until they see a four legged animal.

Google knows nothing about this!
