The pensioner in his 80's, you must be talking about James.

That's the guy - what a great chap. I once ran with James as Tail End Charlie and jokingly asked "So where are your mates today James?". His reply: "Well they only run three days a week and I like to get out for four" :D

Besides, it's not called Solar any more - it's been re-branded as the East of England Co-op, but it's at the Great Eastern Square shopping centre - opposite Felixstowe Railway Station.
So Matthew, if I got a train would it be much if a walk to these shops at Walton?

I bought some wool on the market and it wasn't very good, it changed thickness several times throughout the ball. It wasn't that cheap either. The buttons are quite good though.

Dog owners

But what about the cats who mutilate the birds and defecate in people's gardens?

Dej again, it's a animals natural instinct to hunt, kill, defecate, it's our job, as responsible pet owners to clear up after our beloved pets.

Oh no! My new girlfriend likes to dance at clubs and pubs but I never have danced....which isn't good for a night out lol. Anyone know of any good places to learn? I now wish I attended all those school disco's years back lol :)

Leon You don#t say what type of dance you wish to learn - if ballroom/jazz then try the Lait Dance club they are based in Clarkson street, although they also offer classes at other locations for more details see their website - 
Thanks folks!!! I may try Beryl's advice and do it with my girlfriend after a few beers lol :) I also considered those Xbox 360 Kinect Disco Dance games but not sure if they would help much.
