Re: TODAY'S PENNINE WEATHER

Dennis and Sparky have gone out without their rugs this morning. For a moment they looked very naked with their pure white coats, but a good roll in the muddiest part of the field soon fixed that! Its going to take a long period of decent weather to dry the fields out.

Re: Ancestry DNA Results

Thanks for the link Tripps, I'll have a look at that. My DNA didn't throw up any close relatives but I now have nearly 280 possible third, fourth and fifth cousins! I haven't put my family tree online yet, but I'm just about to make a start. Once that gets linked to my DNA profile I might find more ...

Ancestry DNA Results

I received the results from my Ancestry DNA test last week, which at first I found unsurprising and fairly boring....just your average northerner. A bit of investigation shows that I'm much more British than average though. The average for anyone in the UK is around is about 60% and I am 82% Norther...

Re: THE FLATLEY DRYER

From his records I can see that Dad joined up on 1st July 1940, he was in Blackpool for 2 weeks then moved to Tangmere on the 15th July 1940. The description on entry (1/7/1940) is ACH.GD (GG) which I take to mean Air Craft Hand. Ground Defence (Ground Gunner), so he was signed up for that job. I ha...

Re: THE FLATLEY DRYER

I was looking again at my father's RAF record last night, trying to work out from the list of scribbled dates and initials when he was at RAF Tangmere in Sussex. He joined up in May 1940 and did some initial training in Blackpool, but he must have been at Tangmere training as a ground gunner during ...

Re: TODAY'S PENNINE WEATHER

We've taken them out and been for a dog walk round the fields without getting too soaked, but it is bitter cold! Just noticed the boys chasing each other around at high speed, churning up the mud but warming themselves up. I'll get my stables mucked out after warming myself up with a mug of coffee, ...

Re: TODAY'S PENNINE WEATHER

Just a light covering so far up here, but it's settling more above the 1000ft level. I'm just pondering whether to put the boys out, they stayed inside yesterday and would appreciate a leg stretch even if it's just for an hour or so.

I know I have probably provided this link to Zoe Harcome's article on cholesterol, fat and heart disease before, but it's well worth a read.

I'm struggling Stanley, the antibiotics have been slow to work and my jaw is still sore and swollen. I managed to get an emergency appointment at my own surgery yesterday and the dentist didnt seem too alarmed. I've managed to book in for an extraction on Monday but at the moment I can't open my mou...

Dennis & Sparky will definitely be spending the day in their stables. They have had to stay in quite a bit recently, their field is mess.

Hope that goes OK Kev. I've just made an appointment to sign up with them after finding that the Earby dentists I have been registered with for years only have one part time dentist left (3 days a week) and my chances of getting an appointment to get this tooth sorted are minimal. I'm hoping my anti...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

I had to wait nearly an hour but they were very good. He gave me 2 types of antibiotics in the hope of bringing the swelling down. He was tempted to do an extraction there and then but allowed me to come home under instructions to go to A&E if the swelling gets worse or I start to feel I'll.
