We all have different tastes in everything. Most of us accept that some people will like things we don't or dislike things we enjoy. It's a normal part of life. There are, however, certain bones of contention in the foodie world. You might say that certain foods or combinations are 'Marmite'. That is to say you either you love them or hate them. Of course, there are probably a few strange people who 'don't mind' Marmite, could 'take it or leave it' but I can honestly say I've never met anyone that crazy.
I have written poetry ever since I can remember. At age 14, my first published in a local anthology (I really should have a look for that).
Some residents and visitors will tell you the best thing about Bedworth is the ease of getting out. You might be forgiven for believing that. Admittedly, Bedworth isn’t known for its tourism or night life or, well, much at all. We do have good transport links with easy access to motorways. Regular buses and hourly trains run to our nearest town and city, with some buses going further afield. From the neighbouring town and city, commuters can travel on to Birmingham, England’s second city.
Many of us have pet hates. Perhaps even calling something a 'pet hate' is a particular peeve of someone. There are those 'parent' phrases, you know the ones, things our own parents used to say and we tell ourselves we will never say to our child but inevitably do: because I say so; if you don't stop crying, I'll give you something to cry about; because I am your mother. I am sure there are countless others.
There were Anglo-Saxon Bishops of Leicester from around 680. The records of Leicester Cathedral cite Bishop Cuthwine as the first Bishop of Leicester. While there is no further record of the life of Cuthwine, his reign as Bishop is believed to have begun circa 680, until his death, thought to be in 869.
