Happy birthday - margb

It's your birthday today, Margaret. Hope you have a lovely day for it up there in Queensland. We couldn't get up there this Winter for various reasons. Enjoy your special day.

Re: The Ultimate Embarrassment

Re: Not a lot of people know that

Patrick O'Connor's second book about Ardrossan in the 1930s appears to have been dedicated to Robert Service, I know Marmalade isn't the same as Malamute. But that top image is what's on an otherwise blank page before the index. Robert Service - Bard of the Yukon https://i.imgur.com/OSGflFT.jpg

This problem has raised its ugly head again. Lack of maintenance in this once pleasant part of Ardrossan sees the vegetation back to where it was when I first mentioned it ten years ago in this topic.
