My son uses it, mainly because he likes it I think, but at least it is keeping a small part of dialect alive. He was also at college with a number of people from various country districts in the count ...

In this case it is the National Trust Gregotyn. Mottisfont is in Hampshire, but there is a gradual change of accent, idiom and place name types from Devon through Dorset to Hampshire. An older Hampshi ...

The government could easily do something about it whether we stayed in the EU or not. Putting a subsidy on of something like 10% on the hardware would negate the increase in VAT. Blaming the EU for th ...

I have sprouted mung bean shoots in a glass jar with a piece of kitchen towel held in place on the top with an elastic band. They went all right.

They have done a lot of work there. There is a new visitor centre, which isn't awfully good imo. There are 3 cubicles in the ladies loo, when there needs to be at least 6 and there is a lot of wasted ...

I don't usually watch bees for that long together, as I usually see the bumbles as we are doing our own work; they collecting pollen and nectar, and me doing some woodland work. I am pretty sure we ha ...

Congratulation. I don't see it, but if you are able to post a link would love to see what you have been working on. The main thing is that they have a nice house.

I do sometimes make a mistake and leave a tissue in a pocket, but not very often. When son was small we used to do chromatography with felt tip pens on filter paper (coffee filters work) to see the co ...
