Hi Tony
I see what you mean about it looking like a snake - I have other photos of the same spot and on closer inspection I'm afraid it was just an interestingly twisted part of the tree. My daughter took the picture - if it’d been a snake, you’d have been able to hear her screams from where you are!
Haha, thanks, I think...
Hello. I saw that you too had a copy of Bill Murphy's "Fractions of Zero." I've had the book for years and only just read it. Have you read your copy? I'm interested to know what others thought of this book. - Inigo
Hi Tony,
I've just added you to my 'interesting libraries'. Your library caught my eye this morning as I saw that you have just added Drood and I am eagerly awaiting my copy! Looking through your books, I've added quite a few crime/mystery/thriller titles from your library to my Amazon wish list! I see we already share a number of books, so I thought I'd keep an eye out for further inspiration from you.
Regards, Becky
Hi Tony
I think it may have been me that put Edward and his mrs Mary Elston on the school teacher site !
I think the village of Elston must be a connection to my name,especially as it is in Nottingham,not been there yet,I keep threatening to return and visit my home town,sure I will eventually !
I am more of a southerner now though !

Hi Tony
My ancestor was Edward Elston who was the registrar of births and deaths in Claypole in 1837.he was a blacksmith and had the Woolpack pub as well,he ans wife were teachers also. Later on his son in law had the Woolpack Charles Revill who was also a blacksmith.
I believe one of his ancestors still lives in Claypole now.
I was also born in Nottingham as well.

Hi Tony
I see you are also from Nottingham ? I have ancestors from Claypole in Newark.

We appear to have quite a few books in common !
I have listed about 1200 but still have quite a few more unlisted ones !
I will have a look at your library and see what looks interesting that I can
buy next !
