Just thought we can all have a walk across the fields at the back and go and see if we can see anything in the pond

Morning Sue! w cool days won't harm us.
Cool days won’t harm but it will be winter coat, socks and trainers sat in the back garden with Claire and Erin today. Outside visits only allowed. I am not sure how long each of us will last. Its not a garden for football kicking even if I had one.

Re: GOOD TV

House Through Time and Lost Families are about the only things that are new and good as far as I am concerned. There have been a few good repeated Rail Journeys that Bob likes and I am happy to watch, and occasionally there is a good history programme, but they depend so much on who is presenting it...

For weeks its why no quarantine, now its why quarantine. That is just one e ample. The whole thing is a mess but underneath all of this is Br...

Morning, all, hope you are all well . I remember the saga with the dog Maz, you were worried he was going to expire on you. I hope the visit goes well, I can understand your excitement. We haven’t seen Julia and family in Coventry since Bobs birthday on February 7th. It seems for ever and too far to...

Certainly not the easiest to see on Streetview. This is the best I could get. You can just see a bit of them between the Manchester Road houses.
Brilliant thanks

Re: Coronavirus (Covid19) Corner

Some of the current theories offer up the idea that the covid-19 that we are seeing now is actually a mutation from a less severe coronavirus type that infected people before this pandemic outbreak. Being a relative mild infection it was largely ignored as a pandemic pathogen. If the route was via ...

Yes...but...Sue...the original virus WOULD affect the original wild host in SOME way ( I am thinking things like Chlamydia in Koalas, causing blindness and infertility) ....( and I can’t spell this next word so forgive me) but Myxamatosis in Rabbits...we all knew a sick rabbit once it got going.

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Regulators... Tell Bob the best and simplest are straight slide valves but some locos used a circular flat valve hinged on a pivot. All the traction engines I have dealt with were straight line valves. Nice post again, what a good mix of activities! I have been boring and done 90 minutes in the she...

Thanks Stanley, another answer as to why John Widdup of Rochdale moved to Barnoldswick in 1790 ish. I must get my book going again. My brain was just not in writing mood whilst in France. I may not have sounded it but I was really quite depressed at times

Re: Coronavirus (Covid19) Corner

Two more thoughts I’ve had ( must stop waking early and staring at the ceiling)... IF this virus originated in wild animals, where are the countless bodies of dead wild animals. How come not even one species of wild animals have a significant head count ( because we would be collecting and disposin...

Morning all, its a bit of a damp one.

Sally does not supply face coverings for the NHS as she cannot produce the grade required for surgical use. She sews basic double layer ones for anyone that wants them.
I have found a source of washable filters that can go between the two layers, if they are left as a pouch if she is interested

Its in bits but we can do that Stanley. He inherited it in bits, with a set of plans but they don’t match exactly, you will understand. He jas had to find plans for the regulator which was ceased.
