  2. Does anyone recognise this man?

    This picture of him is on the wall of the Penny Black public house in Bicester and is next to portraits of Oliver Cromwell and Charles I. However, his clothing is of a far later date than the civil war and I estimate that he was from the late 1800s. Both my friend and myself tried to think of...

  3. Genelogical Weirdness

    I seem to have a lot of "coincidental" things happen to me but this one really freaked me out - a few days ago I was mindlessly wasting time scrolling through the Feay/Fay name on the census for England (always hopeful that something will pop out and solve my Feay puzzle that is twenty years old)...

  8. "FUNNY" things happen on Wedding days

    Reading some of the posts on weddings got me thinking about weddings. Many of us remember our wedding day, but lurking in the back of our memory-bank, there may be a funny momemt. Mine occurred about an hour before my wedding. We had our rehearsal a few days before, but due to adverse weather...

  10. Publication dates

    I have some books that do not have a publication date anywhere on them, so how can I find out if they are still within copyright date? They are reference books and look as if they were published in the 1930s-1950s. But, without reading them from cover to cover in a search for clues - and we are...

  11. Are you green?

    Have you historians seen this one yet? Checking out at the supermarket recently, the young cashier suggested I should bring my own grocery bags because plastic bags weren't good for the environment. I apologised and explained, "We didn't have this green thing back in my earlier days." The clerk...

  12. Lightbulb What a disappointment

    I've just been trawling through the Australian newspaper site (TROVE) with a search on "William Tuson". I came across something that appeared to be a murder trial printed in a paper dated 1917. So I thought I'd make a later search for a William Tuson who died in 1917. But then a bit further down...

  14. Another one bites the dust...

    I am sat in my kitchen - it is dark so I have the light on. As I type away on my laptop, the window keeps being struck by what sounds like pebbles being thrown at it - perhaps one per second. It isn't pebbles - it is the yearly flight of the cockchafer beetles! These large (over an inch...

  17. Queen Elizabeth 60 years - memories

    Watching last night on BBC tv the programme on the Diamond Jubilee made me remember the fun we had as children over the Coronation time in 1953 and I wonder what others experienced (those who are old enough!) My dad was the local scout master and I remember him helping the local church hall and...

  18. Question Olympic Connections - present or past?

    I heard on the radio this morning that the Olympic torch arrived in Cornwall, which got me to wondering if any of the folks here have any connections to the 2012 games or even to games past. My maternal grandfather was a swimmer who competed against and lost to Johnny Weismuller in the 1920's,...

  20. What was YOUR life like as a Teen-ager?

    Hardships, disappontments, job sackings and emigration to Canada. I could write a pamphlet on that period of my life. What are yours? Colin
