  2. I have received an early Christmas gift!!

    As many folks here will know I am profoundly deaf. Since 2002 and up to 2007 I attempted to use the last technologically advanced hearing aids - but to no avail. So I resigned myself to the fact that this was as it was likely to be for the rst of my life. From 2007 until I retired in 2009 my...

  5. Birthday Card

    Just thought I'd share this. This is a card sent to me by the local church where I was baptised. As you can see it was sent on my first birthday. On the back is written; A HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Terence Baptised May 21st 1961

  6. Well worth the read.

    Had this sent to me. So it's probably doing the rounds. "Our 14-year-old dog Abbey died last month. The day after she passed away my 4-year-old daughter Meredith was crying and talking about how much she missed Abbey. She asked if we could write a letter to God so that when Abbey got to...

    Can the internet be turned off? I don't mean your personal internet connection, by whoever your provider is. I don't mean a particular site, google, wikipedia, TNA, or BG Forum. I mean the whole world wide web, does someone have access to a button that will shut it all down? I was asked...

  11. Who do You Think You Are? new series

    OK I watched it tonight and thought that the Beeb seemed to have recaptured the fun and excitement of the first two series. Perhaps it was just the reactions of Sam Womack that made me think like that but it did seem to move along briskly and they did use the SoG this time and stayed away from Kew....

  13. The good old un-researched online family tree

    I was watching an episode of Heir Hunters last week - could you be in line for a windfall, could the researchers be knocking at your door? (er, no!) For those without square eyes like me, this is a programme which shows firms of researchers who pick up each week the Bona Vacantia from the...
