I still have no absolute certainty of Broadband as BT have not yet been back to finish off the job. The young lady is going to ring me back tomorrow morning as she thought the job was done. So, while I have a connection - here is a short post.
Our Poetry day today with so many interesting poems. One or two by Charles Causley - hadn't had any by him lately - and a really interesting selection.
The temperature outside is around ten Centigrade - in other words it is jolly cold. Friends have their caravan on the site just below our farm - luckily their van has all mod cons, so they are not at all cold.
The other news is that next week is the Appleby Horse Fair and hundreds of Travelling families are on the move across the north of England. Grass verges are covered with Gypsy Caravans, tethered horses and groups of men sitting around camp fires. I personally love it all - it has been happening for a very long time so I like the history of the whole thing. Some people get cross about the mess and the nuisance on the road (holding up the traffic) - but I suspect that just a few people get the whole lot a bad name.
Well - my Broadband has held out, so I shall go and read some of your posts now.
