Maybe I should just title it "An Evening Picture," as that's about what it'll come down to. Probably lucky to manage that much of a post - I missed yesterday altogether. It's been a crazy couple of days, with 30 hours' worth of stuff cramme... Read more

...how we went from 484 to 445 to 486. Rest assured, 486 is on track. I think. Or at least we're gonna call it "Day 486," and just leave it at that. Whatta couple of days! For Christmas the kids gave us a two-day break at a spa-resort-... Read more

What constitutes a market town? Say what you will about Wikipedia (and more than once I've taken issue with an entry), it's a convenient source for basic information. They have this to say about "market town": The English monarchy crea... Read more

Yesterday's blog got me started on local photos. I've blogged about Lymm before, together with pictures and whatnot, but it's been a while since I last took you on a tour. This one'll be brief, as there's much to do - wasn't it Pepys who us... Read more

I used to live for the weekends - it doesn't seem all that long ago, but I guess it was. When I was in my teens, weekends meant plenty of time to socialize with friends while not having the nuisance of classes or studying in the way. W... Read more

I had no idea I was so popular. Yesterday was the first time in ages I wasn't near a computer for the better part of the day - interpret "better" as you will. So when I open my email this morning, I have scads of messages, and you wouldn't ... Read more

I was looking through my extensive (read: bloated) picture files for some things to post on my page and I came across the poster for a women's suffrage procession, for March 3, 1913 - a century ago today. Except for election days I tend to ... Read more
