Bunch of Thwaites

by duncanr

Thwaites Brewery has stood in Penny Street, Blackburn,  since 1807.

That appears about to change

The company has told the workforce that the brewery is to be relocated and 60 of them are to lose their jobs

Coincidentally (it surely wasn’t deliberate), shortly after that announcement, some of the letters on the illuminated sign that spelled out the company name atop the brewery building were dimmed – leaving a somewhat different message


A Thwaites spokesperson said . . . When made aware of it, all the lights were immediately switched off. It’s not clear what happened, whether there was a fault or other problem but only a few people have access to that part of the building. It is unclear if there was any link between the redundancy announcements and the change to the sign. (

Form your own opinion, folks ! 😆

(Not so) Dumb Blonde ?

Dashing Dasha (KIRO Seattle)

Dashing Dasha (KIRO Seattle)

A Washington State resident who has been pulled over more than 30 times for speeding has hit on a novel plan to beat the cops.

The woman, first name Dasha – surname unknown – painted a message to the cops on the back of her car asking them not to pull her over just because she’s pretty.

So far the ruse seems to have worked. In the month since she put the sign up she has not been stopped once.

Hhmm, not such a dumb blonde after all then.

Doubt it would work for me though if I tried it with UK cops 😦
