Dear Ellie I have a question! I'd love my husband to learn to cook, are there any good courses in Bristol to assist him in learning the skills to rustle up a tasty dish or two?! Thank you! Jenny
Thank you Jenny. I am on the case. Will be back in touch soon.
Hi ellie my question is why is the help available for autistic children diagnosis first? So many families are left with little or no help while awaiting the ASD assessment. The assessment waiting lists are so long and meanwhile parents and children are left to suffer.
I also have another question why has the criteria for Educational health care plans gone up? Many children with special needs are not getting the help they desperately need and are not reaching their full potential. Surely there must be a way for parents and children to get the help they deserve without the constant fight and battles with health professionals and schools. We already have so much to deal with.
Just to let you know I have been in touch with The National Autism Society They tell me they have been inundated with questions like yours and have started a campaign to get earlier diagnosis.
They tell me they are finding the right person to answer your question and will be in touch asap.
I am also speaking to people locally.
Will let you know when I have more. Ellie
A fleet of "number two" buses - powered entirely by poo - could be picking up passengers in Bristol next year.
Wessex Bus is hoping to run a 20-strong fleet in Bristol while rival operator First West of England is looking to bring 110 poo-powered double deckers to the city.
The UK's first ever bio-bus, powered by methane gas extracted from human waste, began services in the city last year on the appropriately named No 2 route.
The route currently runs from Cribbs Causeway to Stockwood.

Staff at the Open University in Bristol are on strike today following a decision to close the regional centre in the city.
Members of the University and College Union are staging a one-day walk-out.
Peter Horrocks, vice-chancellor of the Open University, said: "This is an important decision for the university and its students as it means we can now introduce much-needed improvements to our student support services, something which simply isn't possible across dispersed, smaller offices."
Pauline Collins, of the UCU, said: "It is deeply disappointing that the university has chosen to push ahead with these widely criticised plans. The closures are opposed by staff, students, former students and politicians."
Around 500 members of staff across the university will be offered redundancies, or the chance to relocate or early retirement.
The last British survivor of the famous Dambusters raids turns 94 today. George 'Johnny' Johnson, who lives in Bristol, has recently been presented with a Lord Mayor's Medal.
He took part in the Second World War mission to destroy Germany's industrial heartland using the innovative 'bouncing bomb'.
