To continue my story of Longsight through the ages makes me become emotional about thoughts of the past, the people I knew, the events we lived through, the poor times and not so poor times. So here we go. I was born in February 1946 a Baby Boomer if ever […]
The British Isles 2021. A Good Place To Live?
Many things happened over the weekend ie. 13th/14th March 2021 which seem to sum up what this distasteful piece of history that we are living in is all about. In particular the gathering on Clapham Common by a bunch of peaceful but determined women who wanted to share in the […]
Can You Believe It!
In these bleak, awful days of Covid with people choking to death in their masks and fighting in the queues, lining up at vaccination centres wanting to be the first to get the jab that day, there is news!!! Today, 12th March 2021, the world is starting to fight back. […]
Trying To Understand
Last Saturday morning I attended the internment of an old lady. She had passed the 100 mark last October. I had known her since the Christmas of 1968 – a long time – and she had become to me a necessary part of my life. Because of recent Covid restrictions, […]
