Martin's Pond: a rant.

They're digging up the road outside Martin's Pond




They've closed the whole road. Luckily you can easily drive the other way round the village green if you want to get to the place, which is a pub and its attached restaurant, but the authorities have put up a bright yellow sign anyway:

ADVANCED WARNING: 

it says

MARTIN'S POND WILL BE OPEN THROUGHOUT 


THE PERIOD OF THE ROAD CLOSURE.


That seems a bit harsh, to me. 

I mean, I thought it was quite nice last time I was there.

Word To Use Today: warning. This word comes from the Old English wearnian, related to the Old Norse varna, to refuse.
