    Personally I loathe this poem, but that goes back to being forced to learn the thing by heart at school.

  5. Brilliant , cheers Don. I’m always surprised by how much of it I remember , and I’m guessing that , like you, I learned it at an early age in primary school just after I’d arrived from England. Another thing I remember is the song about the fourteenth of February nineteen sixty six that was on the radio and telly all the time, around about that era.

    Ozziedog,,,,,,,,, any ideas??? :);):)

  7. Haven't been on TLB for a long time, so just catching up on this thread. Crikey Don, you must have nerves of steel. Here's hoping for more rain. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

    The fires are still burning, I've just spent the past 10 days as a radio operator for the bush fire brigade so as to free up another couple of fully trained firefighters.

    Please could you give us all your private telephone number so that we can bombard you with calls/messages every time we worry about you?! :). The second option is that Mrs Terrordales joins TLB just to keep us up to date, if she promises not to read your other posts about secret purchases ;)

    hope you’re winning on the fire front and staying safe x
