Re: READ ANY GOOD BOOKS LATELY?

I've just found the Damien Seeker books. They are a good read if you like historical whodunnit novels. These are set in Commonwealth times, Oliver Cromwell in charge. I definitely recommend the series of books based on the one I've finished and the next ones I'm going to buy! https://www.fantasticfi...

Re: DIALECT AND WORD MEANINGS

Ancestors of mine were slate rivers in the lake district, splitting slate into thinner sheet / tiles etc. You try looking that up in the internet and you get lovely pictures of some place called Slate River. Ah well....

Re: Resources from an Unlikely Source

I'm still doing my family tree (extended) and found a basic mistake looking for my GGGG Grandad's baptism. Now corrected, wrong people removed (oops) and a restart on that line. All I did was ignore some information, I was driven to look for specific information when I had, right in front of me, a b...

I've just seen the stuff about Caroline Flack in Obits. She lived in our village as a youngster. Less is more with regard to comments.

I've just read your piece on greaves Stanley, we are fortunate that there is more legislation governing the transport and use of what is now termed Category 1, 2 and 3 animal by-products. However, the horse gate incidents show that where there is money to be made on the cheap, unscrupulous "business...

I do read a lot of "chewing gum", and I enjoy the escapism I get from those reads, however my enjoyment of the moment is "Who we are and how we got here" by David Reich. I've not finished it yet, and I don't read for long each day (in bed), however it is really enjoyable. Put together with this Frid...

Re: HOUSEHOLD TIPS NOT FOUND IN WOMAN'S WEEKLY

Possibly a cheat for this thread, but I thought I would post it anyway. If you have lightly or heavily tea stained cups or mugs, bicarb of soda and a little water mixed to a paste inside the cup will bring them up sparkling. Oh I wish I'd known this before. :surprised:

Mother came up with one that I am familiar with, but had forgotten about. Worret (spelling may vary) fiddling about with some physical thing, worrying it. Not sure if it has been on this forum before, I don't recall it. She was worreting something the other day.

Hi Stanley, the blur bottom right is Honey the cocker spaniel. Tragically, we lost Sam-u-el the span-u-el around this time last year to liver failure on the day of the Beast from the East. We made the decision for him and let Honey see and sniff him which was again, a good decision. However, it is g...
