    It rained nearly every day in Pittsburgh, just as I had requested I collected more Morgan Hill Poppy Jasper and did some rock landscaping and painting of my own at my daughter's place. I'm going home tomorrow but I'll go back to Reno at the end of this month to be with my friend who is having a hip replacement and wanted me to stay with her for a couple of weeks. I hope my house is still there in Southern California.


    Hey don't you forget to come home some time, Zap !

    Monday night/ early hours Tuesday morning, we heard then saw a helicopter hovering south of us. It was the police helicopter and it was using it's powerful spot/searchlight. We quite often see the police chopper at night, sometimes it hovers overhead and it is flippin' noisy. Anybody asleep in bed at that time soon weren't ! Mostly, though it seems to be used for following suspicious vehicles along the main road, which is about a mile away from our house and lower down the valley. We thought no more about it, as it is quite a common occurrence these days. We retired to bed.

    In the morning there was a report, on our local radio, about an armed robbery just after midnight at a pub just over a mile south of our house. The police had answered a call very quickly and, also using a dog, they quickly found the three robbers and arrested them. I would say that was a decent collar !

    As the police had arrived on the scene very quickly, I would think that the pub had a 'panic alarm' button directly to our local police station. Somebody in the pub had the sense to quietly press the 'panic button' - possibly the landlord. I doubt that the robbers would have been caught so quickly otherwise. The police chopper was also very promptly on the scene.

    In the local paper the following day they showed a picture of the police dog - such a beautifully majestic animal, jet black all over ! Apparently the 3 robbers appeared in the Magistrates Court on the Tuesday where they were informed that the case was too serious for Magistrates to deal with, so they will remain in custody till they have to appear at the Crown Court in the last week of September.

    That would indicate that there could well be custodial sentences. One of the robbers had a knife and another robber had another weapon. I would think that it would be fruitless them pleading not guilty when they were apprehended more or less on the doorstep of the pub, in possession of a knife and another weapon !

    It's all happening at our sleepy suburb innit !
