    Station cleared in grenade alert

    A controlled explosion has taken place at a police station on the Isle of Wight after an elderly woman handed in a live grenade to the front counter.
    The woman had found it while clearing out a derelict house at Gunville, near Newport, Isle of Wight.

    The building was cleared at lunchtime after police noticed the firing pin had been disturbed and the grenade was in danger of exploding.

    High Street and Quay Street have been shut and nearby offices evacuated.

    Police cordoned off the surrounding area while bomb disposal teams work at the scene.

    A police spokesman said: "An elderly woman brought the device into the station after finding it.

    "The firing pin was disturbed at some point between the grenade being found and its arrival at the police station.

    "Pedestrians are advised to stay away from the affected area."

    Glad no one was hurt!

    A Smile

    A smile cost nothing, but gives so much.

    It enriches those who receive it,
    without making poorer those who give.
    It takes but a moment, but the memory
    of it sometimes lasts forever.

    None is so rich or mighty that he
    can get along without it,
    and none is so poor but that
    he can be made rich by it.

    A smile creates happiness in the home,
    fosters goodwill in business,
    and is the countersign of friendship.

    It brings rest to the weary,
    cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad,
    and it is nature's best antidote for trouble.

    Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed,
    or stolen, for it is something that is of no
    value to anyone until it is given away.

    Some people are too tired to give you a smile.
    Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile
    so much as he who has no more to give.

    Glad no one is hurt, but that is funny. I immediately imagined this little old lady tottering up to the counter with a friggin grenade and tossing it up on the desk. "found this, didn't know what else to with it. So here. I tried taking it apart, but the little pin thingy wouldn't come out."
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.
    In Nomine Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritus Sancti.
