Thanks, Julie. I've just heard the good news (as 'leaked' to The Sun) that the Chancellor is to refund the VAT from the sale of the Tommies, so this will go to the military charities being supported by 'Remembered', rather than HMRC. Hopefully, it will be announced in tomorrow's Budget speech.

Correction: Red Wharf Bay!

Unusual and engaging photo: like Julie I've yet to see a butterfly this year, let alone a comma.

By way of an update, I received the following e-mail message from the Suffolk Highways Team one hour after posting the above photograph this morning:

"Following your recent report, we are pleased to confirm that work will be carried out to rectify the issue that you raised with us within approximately 10 working days. Please note that this is subject to weather conditions and Suffolk Highways being able to gain the necessary access to carry out any work (as parked vehicles, traffic conditions and other local issues can sometimes prevent this)."

My "recent report" was 4 weeks ago, on 8 March 2018. If it always takes Suffolk Highways 4 weeks to respond to a pothole report and then up to 10 days to repair the hole, that's up to nearly 6 weeks during which period motorists may damage their cars by driving over the pothole, with the county council (and, thus, Suffolk council taxpayers), potentially liable for footing the car repair bills.

When and where did you take this photograph, Steve?
