This site is far from static. Every month there
are new additions (see below), so there is always something new to
discover. I usually have at least one series of articles in progress
along with a selection of other bits and pieces.
If you are a new visitor I hope you will come back
again. To my many regular visitors, thanks for your continued support
and kind words. Thanks also for all the feedback I have received. A
number of features have been incorporated as a result of these. Further
constructive comments are always welcome. You can e-mail me
Finally a number of visitors have asked me about
permission to use material from the site and other legal things. In
order to clarify this you will find the terms and conditions of use on
my contents page.
LATEST ADDITIONS - April 2014
Two more local photos to enjoy. This month I've
chosen villages as my theme. Have a look at Kirton of Durris and
Auchenblae, as you would have found them in the 1960's. Note the
distinct lack of cars! Have a look at these fascinating glimpses of
yesteryear in my Local Photos page.
It's been a long time since I've added some local
humour to my pages. So this month, thanks to my elder daughter finding
an old local history book, I've included a few. If you don't understand
them then you'll need to seek out an Aberdonian to explain them to you!
Find these new gems on my Humour page!
Another two gravestones for my
Strays page. These are monuments to those whose
resting place may not be in the area they were associated with during
their lives. Is your ancestor waiting to be discovered? Some have
already been lucky and found long lost relatives - perhaps it'll be your
Well we're now officially on BST
(British Summer Time). That means much longer days and if the weather is
good, pleasant evenings in the garden pulling out the odd weed and
mowing the grass. That's what I do of course, it may mean something
different to you!
That's it for another month.
Remember that I have regular updates, so don't forget to check
back. Till we meet again, take care.
