The Common Room / New Ancestry hints help
« on: Wednesday 07 April 21 23:15 BST (UK)  »
Is it me or is the new addition to the hints section absolutely useless and time consuming.

Why do we have to go through those steps to check the hints when it was so simple before. ::)

The Lighter Side / Laugh with Pam Ayres

Her latest

I'm normally a social girl
I love to meet my mates
But lately with the virus here
We can't go out the gates.
You see, we are the 'oldies' now
We need to stay inside
If they haven't seen us for a while
They'll think we've upped and died.
They'll never know the things we did
Before we got this old
There wasn't any Facebook
So not everything was told.
We may seem sweet old ladies
Who would never be uncouth
But we grew up in the 60s -
If you only knew the truth!
There was sex and drugs and rock 'n roll
The pill and miniskirts
We smoked, we drank, we partied
And were quite outrageous flirts.
Then we settled down, got married
And turned into someone's mum,
Somebody's wife, then nana,
Who on earth did we become?
We didn't mind the change of pace
Because our lives were full
But to bury us before we're dead
Is like a red rag to a bull!
So here you find me stuck inside
For 4 weeks, maybe more
I finally found myself again
Then I had to close the door!
It didnt really bother me
I'd while away the hour
I'd bake for all the family
But I've got no flaming flour!
Now Netflix is just wonderful
I like a gutsy thriller
I'm swooning over Idris
Or some random sexy killer.
At least I've got a stash of booze
For when I'm being idle
There's wine and whiskey, even gin
If I'm feeling suicidal!
So let's all drink to lockdown
To recovery and health
And hope this awful virus
Doesn't decimate our wealth.
We'll all get through the crisis
And be back to join our mates
Just hoping I'm not far too wide
To fit through the flaming gates

enjoy it I did
 ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

I loved the Goodies, I'm Sorry, I Haven't a Clue and I'm Sorry, I'll Read That Again. What a great team player and so funny.

World War Two / DNA of Relatives Needed to Identify Body
« on: Saturday 27 April 19 12:01 BST (UK)  »
An appeal for relatives of a UK serviceman's body found in Italy.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-manchester-48072589

They want to find living relatives so DNA tests can be done, once identified the body will be buried with full military honours.
