Re: FORGOTTEN CORNERS

I've learnt most of what I know about Barlick from this site and have saved many many picks from this topic. I rarely miss a day checking in.

Cheers and thanks :smile:

Re: HOUSEHOLD TIPS NOT FOUND IN WOMAN'S WEEKLY

Is it true that newspaper ink never dries?

Re: DIALECT AND WORD MEANINGS

How can something have so many names? When is Devon known as Belgium? When it's the name of a sandwich meat. Known as Devon in many parts of Australia, it's called Belgium sausage in Tasmania, polony in Western Australia, Fritz in South Australia, Windsor sausage in Queensland, Strasburg in Victoria...

Re: CHILDHOOD MEMORIES

I called my daughter Chelsea because I wanted her to remember that she has English blood from both her parents and all of her grandparents . Another choice for her name was Brooke, or Dale if she turned out to be a boy. Her middle names (2) come from each of her Great Grandma's. She was the only stu...

The new friend says that there aren't many sour-sobs in England and she thinks they are pretty. I think they are too but ove...

Re: CHILDHOOD MEMORIES

Not clothes but I remember putting on a wedding ring (I think our Mothers) when I was 7 years old, and then found that it wouldn't come off. Our Great Uncle Harold had to get it off using a file. I still have a tiny feint scar.

Re: TODAY'S PENNINE WEATHER

End of Winter here with a hint of Spring.
Except for today when we had stormy weather and they say half of Adelaide had power outages, not my half, but the wind was so strong at one point it snapped a limb off one of my trees. It's about 4 metres long.

Re: PET'S CORNER

My thought is that in the future we will only be able to buy Pedigree dogs and cats. Gosh how expensive will that be for the average family.

Also if the cat owners can't afford to keep up the registrations they might abandon them. This would be cruel and the cats might end-up as feral cats.

Lady is doing really well, her personality is showing itself today and her wound looks healthy. Still some way to go but I'm very pleased with her so far. She is now on 2 Tablespoons of wet-food and a few biccies each meal (3-4 meals each day) and drinking about 90-100ml water each day. :good:

Re: CHILDHOOD MEMORIES

The oilcloths that I remember have mainly been in pictures and they always had old fashioned patterns on them. Probably classed as Vintage these days. But they bring to mind the table coverings that the 'Pizza Hut' use, I'm sure they are of the plastic variety.
