Re: PET'S CORNER

Beautiful plait isnt it? I must learn how to do it. Minnie gave her head a shake after Becky finished the plait and it made a sound like a whip cracking!

Re: PET'S CORNER

Becky's mum runs Pendle Dogs in Need our local dog rescue charity, she was telling me that there are very few dogs going into rescues at the moment because people are able to get good money by selling dogs on. This probably means that dogs are becoming traumatised by being passed from home to home, ...

That's the first time in a while that I've turned off the 6 o clock news as soon as it started! I don't suppose that the BBC will have noticed me switching off. :smile:

Re: Seen in the News

The reports of Meghan treating her staff badly reminded me so much of an American 'lady' I worked for briefly at Stone Gappe in Lothersdale.

Re: MYSTERY OBJECTS

Yes Tripps I have a copy of Derek Clabburn's book about Henry Richardson and we have copies still for sale if anyone else would like one! The Well Project was finished before I became involved in the History Society so I missed all that excitement!

Re: DIALECT AND WORD MEANINGS

Thanks Tripps, that's what I thought. There is an RSPB nature reserve near Leeds called Faibairn Ings which is just that. Wood Ing in Kelbrook was on a hillside!

Re: MYSTERY OBJECTS

I can't see a name on the image!
It is the well at Thornton in Craven and I'm wondering if this was an opening ceremony of some sort after the Earby & District Local History Society had finished their restoration project.
