Brockley Central FTW

Congratulations, people of Brockley, you have officially waded through 1,000,000 pages of this stuff.

According to Sitemeter, about one minute ago we recorded our millionth page impression since records began back in 2007. We reckon only half a million of those were spent arguing.

Thank you all for making this place so lively!

Oooooh I was the last commenter.

Do I win a prize?

Brockley Nick said...

My respect.

Tyrwhitt Michael said...

Hmmmmph!

I was hoping for a pot of Brockley Honey.

I'll buzz off for now.........geddit?

Brockley Nick said...

According to the shop on the hill, Brockley Honey is sold out until next summer!

Monkeyboy said...

ah...a traditional derailed thread. Sopers has Deptford honey. They also sold me a bag of mussels in which about three were edible. Not happy.

Brockley Nick said...

There is also Honor Oak honey.

I may be cynical but i suspect those bees do not show sufficient respect to our SE4 borders.

In Tuscany they tie cotton around them so they do not stray outside pollen catchment area.

Tyrwhitt Michael said...

On the basis that I shall be in the Dog and Bell for a decent pint tonight - Deptford Honey will do.

Someone recently gave me a pot of honey made on Vesta Road. Is it Brockley, New Cross or Telegraph Hill honey?

Anonymous said...

Depends.

Recycled glass jar - Brockley
Very tall and narrow jar - Telegraph Hill
Used syringe in jar - New Cross

One of the nice little delis in East Dulwich sells Nunhead honey too.

I thought there was supposed to be a bee shortage?

maxink said...

Impressive. Congratulations.
Have you made much with Google ads or there isn't any hope?

Brockley Nick said...

@max - no - sadly the fundamental problem with google ads is that no bugger clicks on them. Also, local ads for rubbish clearance and storage aren't exactly the high value keywords.

Monkeyboy said...

That's it! I've had enough of these bees making a fool out of me. It's a cartel, artificially manipulating honey futures. Enron did that you know....except not with honey....but you know what I mean.

I'm buying generic honey from Tesco's from on.

Congrats. A sign of how great your blog is. I check everyday, and everyone i know does. I'll never stop being an 'anonymous' though!

Congrats. Keep up the good work.

Again congrats.

And on the de-railed part of this thread - there is a very serious problem with the bees used in large numbers to pollinate a significant proportion of the Euro-west's crops, but it is not, as yet, affecting urban bees. Hence the encouragement of urban bee-keeping.

I think New Cross Honey would have to be that from the apiary in B(l)essom Street Gardens

Rob Blackie said...

Congratulations - that's amazing.

And on the de-railed part of the thread - you might want to chat to Tam Langley (my partner & prospective Lib Dem MP for Lewisham Deptford) - she's worked heavily with Britain's only professor of honey bees - so is a real bee expert.

I have a photo somewhere but they don't really work with bees - they're too small to come out.

There are also honey producers in Crofton Park and Catford but if you're looking to maximise the hay fever prevention benfits of local honey, the closer it's produced to where you live or spend your time, the better.
