Project 2000

Devon County Council have given the village an opportunity to take over the ownership of Little Bickington Farm now that the present tenancy is at an end.
The County Council are giving the village the opportunity to use the farm and land for the good of the village instead of simply selling it off as development land.
Various possibilities present themselves as a result of this. For example, the village could choose to simply offer a new tenancy to ensure the continuation of Little Bickington as a farm. There are environmental benefits in this as the farm has not been over intensively managed and supports a variety of species such as Skylarks, hares, bats and Barn Owls, that are becomming increasingly scarce on more intensively managed farms. (Of course, such factors as bats and Barn Owls would need to be accounted for should the farm buildings ever be developed).
Other possibilities include using part of the land to build the long awaited new village hall, there-by getting over the problems presently faced by dealing with the developers on the Barton Meadows site.
Other possibilities include a possible future site for a new village school, extensions to the playing field, the creation of new public rights of way over land previously denied of access, (including a new safe route to the Playing Field), a community farm or even 'so-called' low cost housing for first time buyers.

Unfaithfulness: background

With whole genetic determinism of unfaithfulness, problems still do not develop from scratch. They arise, when a family crisis appears. When spouses begin to drift apart, mutual incomprehension prevents good sex from being a reliable cure for infidelity. After all, many women have always said: lack of understanding is the most common cause of infidelity. Anyway, what is "unfaithfulness"? Can a man cheat on with his job? How's that? If you look closer, you’ll see one can cheat on with work: looks for any excuse to stay an extra hour at work; works on weekends; goes to work as soon as possible; spends more time preparing for work, than talking with a close woman; goes to work wearing a well-pressed suit and shaven look, wears some old tracksuit at home. In later life, a man features uncharacteristic behavior: a fleeting relationship with a girl from escort service (Aurum Girls, for example), crazy deeds and inadequate responses. This is due to age crisis and fear of end of life. A man fails to realize his real needs. He tends to confuse the need for social recognition with sexual desire.
