Road Closed in Formby.
Drivers are being held up for the next three weeks in Formby as resurfacing work is carried out on the Bridge. Any one who is going to cross the railway in Formby should allow plenty of time.  Other work in Formby is also causing problems as new water pipes are still being laid.

Flying in for Business.
A Chopper from Summerset landed on the beach on Wednesday.  This chopper used the landing strip, that this year has been closed to planes due to the bad surface.  "This is now an ideal landing spot" said the chopper pilot who was fending off a parking warden.
One of the business men said "Landing on the beach is great.  It gets us close to the town and cuts out travel time.  I think it is a great bonus for Southport to be able to land choppers on the beach."
Happy Birthday!

It's Birthday time, Andrew Aston from Southport.  Just 30, with love from your Girl Jenny Hogton.

Film review:-  Rush Hour 2.

A real good marshal arts film that takes the mickey out of the Americans.   Directed by Brett Ratner, this is yet another funny and well constructed film.  The only down side is the annoying scripting of Det. James Carter, LAPD played by Chris Tucker makes the creator too much like Axel Folly in Beverly Hills Cop.  Chris Tucker cannot deliver that type of stylized acting, so it adds to the problem.    The film starts with  James Carter on holiday and ends in about the same mood with the joint star of the film Detective Inspector Lee played by Jackie Chan.  With high kicks flying and fists pounding, the two try to stop a Triad Gang from distributing counterfeit US Dollars with an over the top, tongue in cheek plot.  You have to like Jacky Chan films to appreciate this one to the full, except that it is not of the same standard as Jacky Chan.  Otherwise this film is well worth seeing. 

Cast, well voices overview, first credits only:- Jackie Chan as Detective Inspector Lee, Chris Tucker as Det. James Carter, LAPD, Chris Penn as Clive, Don Cheadle, John Lone as Ricky Tan, Ziyi Zhang as Hu Li, alan King as Steven Reign and stephen Stable.
