Re: FORGOTTEN CORNERS

There were turnpikes at Thornton in Craven and Broughton, but I'm not sure where else on that road.

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

It was way back in 1973 that I was there Sue, it was an amazing place to live in. My room was in the keep, very close to the room where Edward 2nd was murdered. There were no other live in members of staff and if the Berkeley's went out for an evening there would just be me and the two little boys a...

Re: ENERGY MATTERS

Unsurprisingly it has been the best summer yet for our solar panels. Between 19th April and 21st September we generated almost 2800kwh. Amazingly we are still on the original FIT tariff and it's now all profit, the panels had paid for themselves by last year. Similar story here. Only 800 kWh in our...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

I worked at the castle not the power station! It's a lot more touristy now with the family having to make a fortune to pay for the upkeep.
Then I shall recommend a visit to the gardens at Spetchley outside Worcester, the Berkeley's summer home!

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

I can recommend Berkeley Castle if you are down that way Sue! I have been there Wendy, Bob worked in Berkeley for about 10 years before he went to Anglesey. We had a mobile home in the reidential park there. I remained in Rochdale with the girls and Bob worked there during the week at Berkeley Tech...

That will have left you shaken! Was Jack OK? A wild and bracing walk round the fields this morning in full wet weather gear though we just met with showery rain. Back to splashing through puddles! There was a beautiful double rainbow over the valley as we set out. I put rugs on the ponies at teatime...

I wonder how Graham (Chinatyke) is getting on with Typhoon Manghut.
Jack could have a urinary infection which is causing him to dribble a bit.

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

It wasn't easy finding real railway sleepers locally, a lot of places now just sell new pine replicas. The originals aren't recommended for use in gardens any more because of the creosote content. There used to be a timber yard in Silsden that sold them but the owner has recently retired. We were ju...

It was quite a lap! He looked overwhelmed when he got back to the pits. I didn't watch any interviews afterwards as Colin was moving railway sleepers around outside and I felt guilty about sitting watching tv.

Pleased to hear your op was successful Sue, there are some horrible stories about reactions to the mesh implants. We like to watch "GP's Behind Closed Doors" which is on Channel 5 (8pm Wednesdays) and the new series is based in a Bradford practice where they do vasectomies on site as a minor op with...

I keep thinking about Rocking Horses. We had one when we lived in Fountain St.
Then I would have been your friend! 😊 I longed for one, and the first school friend I can remember having was the proud owner of a rocking horse. She also wore one of those fluffy boleros, but I didn't envy that.

Its the fruit Sue! You must have gone over your normal carb tolerance threshold. Refuse all meds and request another blood test in a month's time and stop eating the reduced fat rubbish! The extra carbs in the fruit will probably have raised your LDL cholesterol levels too. Worth reading this rather...
