HI TO ALL MY CHUMS  :-**

I HAVE ENJOYED READING ALL THE POSTS, IT'S GREAT TO SEE YOU ALL SWAPPING STORIES.   :) :)

JEAN, ISABEL CALLED ME TODAY FROM FLORIDA AND THE WEATHER HAS NOT BEEN VERY GOOD IN ST PETES. SHE IS THERE FOR ANOTHER COUPLE OF MONTHS SO HOPEFULLY IT WILL HEAT UP.  I DIDN'T KNOW A CAR COULD GO ON A PASSENGER TRAIN, YOU LEARN SOMETHING EVERYDAY  :D 

LIZ, DID YOU MANAGE TO GET OUT WITH YOUR FRIENDS TODAY ? I KNOW IT WAS VERY COLD. MY SISTER STAYED OVER FOR A COUPLE OF NIGHTS BECAUSE OF THE BAND DANCE, SHE LIVES IN A GATED COMMUNITY CLOSE TO THE LAKE. WE TOOK HER HOME TODAY AND YOU CAN IMAGINE HOW COLD IT WAS., I DIDN'T EVEN GET OUT OF THE CAR, BOBBY HELPED HER INTO HER HOUSE BUT I SAID MY GOODBYES THROUGH THE WINDY  :D

JILLY, THE DANCE WENT AS WELL AS COULD BE EXPECTED DUE TO THE WEATHER, THERE WEREN'T AS MANY PEOPLE AS WE USUALLY GET BUT WE GOT MORE THAN WE EXPECTED, SO IT WASN'T TOO BAD,  :)

SARAH, I HAVE TRIED HAGGIS BUT I'M NOT KEEN ON IT, WE ORDER IT FROM A SCOTTISH BAKERY SO APPARENTLY IT'S GOOD  :D

SCOTLAND, IT'S NICE TO SEE YOU, I HOPE ALL IS WELL WITH YOU AND THE FAMILY. DO YOU GO TO ANY RABBIE BURNS DANCES, AND DO YOU LIKE HAGGIS ?

HI JACKIE,  I HAVE FRIENDS STAYING IN ST PETES AND THE WEATHER ISN'T VERY GOOD THERE,  I'M SURE IT WILL CHANGE ONCE YOU GET INTO FEBRUARY. SAY HI TO VI  :-*

I HOPE I DIDN'T MISS SAYING HI TO ANYONE.   :-**

Are there descendants of these Magills? Robert was a mariner, and widower when he married Margaret Mayne in 1862.  Margaret's father David was a mariner. Robert and James' father was John Magill.  Any leads would be appreciated.

OH
MY
GOD.

How, at times, do you say what's obvious without it being perceived as contentious? It's a sticky wicket, and no doubt about it.  .Well folks, you've all heard of coastal erosion. People buying houses on the coast and the sea claiming their gardens at a rate of so many feet a year. Judging by those photographs it looks to me like there's more than one way to skin a cat right enough. They'll get the lot on the Shore Road, and surrounding areas, one way or another.  It looks once again like profit is the main driver in all things, and no-one there who cares enough to try to stop it all in its tracks. Even those whose homes potentially become precarious. I'm absolutely horrified.

He who gets demolition projects make a profit. Nothing left on the ground afterwards but unsightly, empty space to collect litter and dog guano doesn't matter, for it's only the people of the Shore Road who have to look at it.

Those who build houses make a profit, and if at the same time.   ....then it doesn't matter because money's been made.

Look out for your properties in and around the Shore Road because the enemy is all around you.

OMG is right Helen I can remember as a kid I could walk along this from lowood side and get all the way to the other end of lowood school and come out at the chippy lane DOOOONT think I would risk that journey today
that place was one of our play ground areas ,,,    unreal wtf is happening over there
regards tommy , ps looks like you been bizzy on here     :-*
