hiya Helen the old derelict buildings I remember one was in the middle of the waste land between ur mums back garden and my granny fife,s back garden, the other ones (think it was 2) where out the back of the house where ma doak lived
cant remember the company who removed them, but I seem to remember being told or I read it that there was a dairy
farm which stretched from the bottom of lowood all the way up to where the school now stands long before any of the houses of lowood and mount Vernon were built and the other old building thu it was just the footings that were left was
at the bottom of lowood on the left side going up probably just where the big flats are standing ,,, mite be worth asking if janet can remember any thing about the diary u never know ,,,,,
regards tommy  :-*
Walked with my Granny who lived in Lansdowne Park through fields  ( before school was built) to Jebb's nursery and warned not to go near deep pool . She went there for vegetables, so long ago cannot recall much more.Also visited relative in Lowood long before Mt Vernon estate was built.

Hi All,
David McIlveen here from Australia and a lot of my ancestors lived in the Sandy Row area from about 1850 till 1980. Names are McIlveen, Dickson, Bowden

I am wondering if anybody would know a location where McIlveen's, Dickson's and Bowden and Wrights may of been buried back from about the 1850's till about 1925.
 I am back over there in May 2018 previously there Mar 2016.


Any info would be appreciated I have checked the Council web site for burials but the ones I am looking for are not listed.


I am on Facebook

Regards
David

I think the movie was 1960
Ten points  :) , you're absolutely correct, it was 1960, and astonishing to think that it was a flop in America. ! 1966 was Return of the Seven. So, it's down to Astor to figure out if the picture caption gave the wrong film, or the wrong year.

Hi Ruby,

We are not too bad, we have our ups & downs. I find it very hard to walk very far so I have to go back to the Doctor's next week. Jim has been having a lot of pain with his leg but he keeps on working in the yard etc.

So glad my family all escaped much damage in Florida and pray they miss this next one also.

Hope you all have a beautiful week ahead.

Love Val......😘😀
Hi Val,  sorry to hear you're not feeling so good and Jim  too, is this the leg he had operated on.    I know what it's like not being able to walk, I can't do without my walker now .  I 'm glad to hear none of your family were affected by the storms .  We should take one day a week and every body post something they want to complain about  :D   anyway I hope the rest of your week goes well...take care.  Liz :-*

Hi girls, I'm glad I gave you a laugh :D :D

Val, Betty had told me she was staying with her daughter for awhile after the house was sold. I hope she gets intouch because she's not far from me and we could meet for coffee.
The weather has been up and down, we put the A/C on today, we have hardly used it this year, and I'm not getting in the garden as much as I would like, I'm seeing a lot of Wasps around. How are you & Jim keeping ? :-*
 
Ruby,  we can always do with a laugh.  I've had mine on since last week, I only turn it of when sitting at the computer and then turn it on when I leave. I was talking to 2 of my friends tonight, it doesn't happen very often, anyway my nose was completely stuffed up, I think I've a touch of allergies, nothing to write home about but on the phone I sound like I'm loaded with the cold.  has anyone else had allergies this summer.   Ruby you might have a nest somewhere near by and they are not something I liked around me when I was in the garden, I would rather have bees.wasps will come after you , bees don't,  the first day of Autumn is this Friday , can you believe it.    well have a good day tomorrow.  Liz :-*

maybe they should investigate mp.s who refuse to recognise the parliment but seem to recognise the expenses and perks that go with it  :P
Well quite a few Westminster MP's who recognise the Westminster Parliament certainly do both recognise, and accept, the expenses and perks that go with being an MP,... such as Ian junior for example,... who BTW is the real subject of this thread, and who remains so, despite the several previous efforts to change the subject of the thread.

Which particular expenses and perks are you referring to in regard to the SF members elected to Westminster. ?

Can you perhaps find, and specify them, in their published accounts. ?

What about these miscreants  ;) Did they accept their wages whilst refusing to carry out their Jobs   :spiteful:  https://theconversation.com/fighting-an-election-only-to-refuse-a-seat-sinn-fein-and-westminster-abstention-76963
They didn't fail to carry out their jobs as Westminster MPs. Their jobs as Westminster MPs was to represent their electors, which they did at a constituency level.

They didn't accept their wages as Westminster MPs, because no such wages were available to them,... their wages as Westminster MPs who don't swear an oath of allegiance to the Crown are witheld by the U.K. Government.

If you want further details of their political finances, you could ask Gerry, he and his Party, have published their financial accounts.     http://www.sinnfein.ie/contents/16460
