Re: MYSTERY OBJECTS

No idea where it is but I think the N is uppercase and the right right way round, the base of the barrier post is covering the point on the top left. :laugh5: It is the point on the bottom right that worries me. The diagonal on the letter N runs from top left to bottom right between the 2 vertical ...

Why is the 'n' the wrong way round and lower case? It must be in America.

The gates are fastened together, they obviously open one way or another. There's a curious slot running on the road between each set.
If it is over a canal could Glo's "curious slot" be to allow the barge towing rope to be drawn through whilst still attached to the horse?

Not seen any mention here Cathy. Wuhan, the source of the present flu outbreak has more inhabitants than London. 11 million as opposed to 8.5 million in London.

Thanks for asking Maz. I'm OK now, well as right as I've ever been! The wounds have healed well and are fading or blending in with my neck wrinkles. I feel 100% well but mentally there is still that nagging doubt every time I get an ache and I ask myself is it in my bones, but I'm 74 this year and s...

Re: DIALECT AND WORD MEANINGS

We used to use the term "damaged and kept" when I was at Loveclough Printworks, or D and K. I don't know if that was the origin but I've heard the term demick referring to something that was D 'n' K or no good.

I think you are right, a Spa would account for the 2 separate buildings, male and female, necessary in Victorian times. I wonder if they would need 3 buildings now for people who don't believe what their chromosomes tell them?

Gosh China. It brings to mind the way things were done years ago ie milkmen, bakers etc visiting every street, except these days they come by bike, vans and small trucks .

We lament the demise of the corner shops and this report is about the rise of express deliveries, a service industry that processes internet orders. The volumes are huge in China because of the large population but the figures are incredible. http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/a/202001/06/WS5e12dc43a310cf...
