Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

My wife was amazed when we were on a morning stroll in California and almost everyone would smile and say "Good Morning" - Same when we went for a country walk in Kent.

It illustrates how the harbour looked until the 1890s at Swanage when vast quantities of stone (Purbeck and Portland limestone) were stored up in what were called `bankers' waiting to be worked on or shipped out.

Re: Old fashioned clean jokes

A man tells his Rabbi “I have a strong desire to live to eternity. What am I supposed to do?”
The Rabbi replied “Get married.”
“It’s that simple? Would that allow me to live forever?”
“No, but the desire will disappear.”

Not to mention England's lack of help in the Irish famine or penal transportation of Irish people. The Irish slave trade began when 30,000 Irish prisoners were sold as slaves to the New World. The King James I Proclamation of 1625 required Irish political prisoners be sent overseas and sold to Engli...

Re: The View from Up Here.

The number of hours I spent playing "up Red Lane" and I never realised you could see Malham Cove.
Loved the view from St Bartholomew's, I used to go there to youth club and occasionally to Evensong.
Thanks for those pics and memories.

Let's not start another circular argument about immigration, Rectilinear I'd say, rather than circular.

Thanks for that link, I didn't know it but I should have known, I watch CGTN often enough and they are forever giving out details of their website!
