fbb Didn't get it Quite Right
BLUE dot on the map above. Getting TO the stop is quite simple; they operate in a sort of straight line along the "old" A50. It's getting back onto the main road that is the hassle.
So, how do you find out about this? Where is this clearly explained in printed publicity? fbb simply does not know. The 26, 27 and 28 timetable doesn't say that they do run via the Brantings ...
On the other hand, the 29 and 29A timetable doesn't say that they don't call at the Brantings.
Arriva's web site keeps the Brantings information a closely guarded secret. It is only after beads-of-sweat research on Traveline that the difference is made clear, and then only if you look at the helpful pop-up local maps. Firstly the brown line VIA the Brantings ...
fbb would bet his (incomplete) collection of Leicester bus leaflets that no-one at the end of a phone line would have a clue either.
Oh, fbb nearly forgot. Travelling FROM Leicester all five routes run via The Brantings. Why? Because it's quicker than using the roundabout, of course; although the road signs don't advertise the through route.
The evening and Sunday 29As DO run via the Brantings because, as everybody knows, the 26, 27, 28 and 29 don't run at all in the evenings, but the 27 does run (via The Brantings, of course) on Sundays. Blog readers will be tested on this in the new year!
Incidentally, this means that the minuscule estate at The Brantings gets two buses an hour to Leicester on Sunday daytimes (27 and 29A) whereas the much huger Groby village centre only gets one. That's transport planning for you.
Incense (and frankincense is mega posh stuff) was part of the province of Priests. The ecclesiastical idea is (and was) that the sweet smelling pong would be pleasing to God, and would carry the worship of mankind "up" to heaven. In practice it was the temple equivalent of air freshener; making the pong of people less offensive to other people. It is an aromatic resin obtained from trees of the genus Boswellia.
Understand Jesus, understand God : Accept Jesus, accept His forgiveness : Follow Jesus, accept truth. He is Mr Super-Priest, replacing all human priests before and since.
Jesus said, "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life"
