Re: LIGHTS IN THE SKY 2013

I have never been this disorganised for Christmas. Never mind, Christmas cake is now in the oven. No brandy feed this year!

New resource

I stumbled across this wonderful resource the other day, it doesn't make for an easy read but it does make for an interesting one. Thank goodness no-one can relieve themselves and drown in my well! Happy browsing if you have time. Link: http://reshare.ukdataservice.ac.uk/852155/3/Accident_inquests.csv

Re: FORGOTTEN CORNERS

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...

Re: READ ANY GOOD BOOKS LATELY?

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:

Re: DIALECT AND WORD MEANINGS

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.

Very sad to learn about Moh. My sympathies to her family.

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...

Re: PET'S CORNER

This is an update on Buster, our 1 year old Munsterlander. What a year it has been! He arrived with a slightly gippy tummy for which all the litter had been prescribed antibiotics and because we had travelled 200 miles or more, we took him home. Firstly he has never been ill, but the tummy persisted...

Re: Homing Frogs

A quick check yesterday revealed a goodly amount of frogspawn but this morning was something wondrous, a bubbling cauldron of croaking. I counted the number of heads accurately and found that there were at least loads, if not shed loads of frogs heads above water - that is until Buster the Munsterla...

Re: Homing Frogs

Friday morning 22 Feb for our first frog on frog sightings, however we have had a lot of tree felling activity next to the pond which may have disturbed their routine. Massive old cherry tree will be sadly missed but had started to drop branches and was rotten at the core.

Re: READ ANY GOOD BOOKS LATELY?

The Bleak Midwinter. A John Grey novel by L. C. Tyler. If you haven't read these historical murder mystery novels before, just try one. John Grey is the chief protagonist and has a special air of self importance. Fun reading between heavier tomes.

Re: OBITUARIES

We took newly made friends to see Jeremy Hardy, I guess we should have checked their politics beforehand. Jeremy was funny, as were their faces! Ah well, don't take anything for granted.
