I now buy my newspaper by weight. I buy the one that I can lift. Today we had a mild strike by the newspaper deliverer; he said that the pack of DVDs and Christmas catalogues were the straw that would break his back - if anyone wants all this junk they can come to the shop and collect it themselves.

No wonder the news on the Internet is getting so popular.

In the village here we have no newspaper delivery at all, but a group of residents use a bread bin. This is a bin in the garden of one of the cottages. Each morning one of the villagers, decreed by rota, drives to the camp site shop 2 miles away and picks up the newspapers required by the group members, brings them back and puts them in the bread bin. The others then collect their papers from there.

Me? I just read the news on-line. The Telegraph headlines are emailed to me early each morning so I can read just what interests me. I am, of course, missing out on all the catalogues etc, so usually every Saturday we buy the Telegraph, most of which goes into the recycle bin unread...
