  1. Who would be responsible for them, Bedlington, County or others?
  2. Didn’t my reply register Alan, 21c here, but only 2c outside! Garden is full of leaves and mountains covered in fresh snow. Definitely quiz weather.
  3. Nice to see the quiz again, thank you CL it's greatly appreciated, I didn't get many answers before having to cheat! but it did get the grey matter working again. 1. What does the name ‘Spam’ (meat - not computer) stand for Special Processed American Meat. 2. Who was the World Darts Champion 5 times between 1980 and 1986 Eric Bristow 3. By what other name is a Dublin Bay Prawn known Norway lobster 4. Who said “The lion and the calf shall lie down together, but the calf won’t get much sleep” Woody Allen Which member of the royal family married Marina of Greece Duke of Kent 6. When politician Roy Hattersley failed, for the third time, to appear on ‘Have I got news for you’ his chair was occupied by what Tub of lard. 7. Which ex-England footballer is the father of a television weather forecaster Bobby Charlton. 8. What is the cube of 3 27 9. Which animal the scientific name Capra hircus Goat 10.

  4. Good idea, I'd probably sponsor a tree for the Dagless family.
  5. Happy birthday Malcolm, have a gud un.
  6. Yes James Joyce is my sister-in-law, and now lives in Sparwood, BC, Colin passed away 2017, they moved here (Grande Cache) in 1969 when the mine and Town first opened, (I think it was still McIntyre Mines then! )then they moved to Kaiser Resources, Sparwood 1971, later spent some time in Collie Australia.
  7. We (Doreen Dagless) lived in #3, first house around the corner, the back gardens (leak trenches!) were next to each other. I think whoever was in #1 worked or owned one of the garages
  8. VISTA, It's back Alan, my son was able to re-install and get it working, I don't go on line with it now but do like my old programs that are much more friendly than newer ones. Now to save anything I can before it dies again.
  9. Seems logic to me. To follow a conversation I read the next posting, then it's answer, and so on, not the last posting and not understanding how the conversation arrived there! but as long as one understands how it is being posted then all is good! Could your "settings" be wrong or different? one for the experts.
  10. For me this appears to be the most logical way to follow the conversation! (But I do have difficulty moving around the Gallery especially closing pictures.)
  11. This is the contents of "The Geordie Cook Book, 9The other book has "Panackelty") I'm not sure if we are allowed to copy from the books without permission?
  12. Covid is looking good! and 9am and it's only 22c, rain forecasted around 2pm.I hope it is an inside wedding!
  13. I agree, anything above 22c is waisted on me, I'm in the garden 7am or 8pm watering etc, like the plants I wilt in the heat, otherwise it's put down the awning on the south window, and stay inside as much as possible. Tomorrow I've been asked to drive a wedding couple around town in my old T, I hope it has cooled down by then, July 1st should also be Canada day celebration but it was moved to Saturday (due to Covid) so that may be a parade drive! Luckily we have a very dry heat so it isn't as bad as in the east where it is humid, but this heat also causes the snow on mountain tops to melt and the rivers are high and if it rains we will have big floods! Now 52c is a bit too much, but temperature is a bit like age, just a number, it's how you deal with it! Eggy 20c at three in the morning was very welcome. On the bright side tomorrow in Alberta most of our Covid restrictions are lifted!
  14. Longtitude and latitude! Grande Cache is 53.8886N 19.1143W Those numbers are for Choppington west of the A1068 highway. And it's 37c right now!
