I visited the Scarborough Tourist Information Centre  earlier this morning and must confess to being more than disappointed in the response to an enquiry that had been bothering me for some time.

"Do you have information on the number of tourists of sino-japonica origin who visited the twin resorts of Scarborough and Bridlington in the first quarter of last year?"
It would seem the TIC at Scarborough do not maintain any information at their centre  to answer my request and, in fact they informed me, they do not carry any information on tourists at all! Which beggars the question - what is the point of a Tourist Information Centre - when it provides no information on tourists? Plain stupid!  
Ahh - cricket... There is something deeply satisfying - in late spring sunshine - to hear the thwack of hardened cork on willow! Summer is just around the corner and maybe the world isn't such a bad place after all. On several occasions I have tried to explain the laws of cricket to my colonial friends across the Atlantic - it's not easy, is it? And to be honest it is a difficult sport to describe and put in context. Then again American Football - what's all that about? A 60min game that lasts three hours - the two halves are separated by a halftime period, and the first and third quarters are also followed by a short confusing is that?
