Up Up and Away
Posted On 01/23/2015 02:12:37 by kiwibarb
Flying didn’t enter my life until I was 15. In my childhood it never occurred to any of  us that we could actually go up in a plane. During the second World War, we were terrified at the very sound of a plane, because we knew England was getting bombed by overhead enemy aircraft. We knew the war was on, and we had air raid practices during which we had to get into the shelters at the school grounds, just in case there might be bombs falling here. It didn’t happen of course, but the fear... Read More

The Truant
Posted On 01/22/2015 15:49:18 by kiwibarb
Hurrying to keep up with Mum, I half-walked, half-ran the two blocks from our house to the Railway Station. This was a typical trip to town, but not a typical day. This was a school day, and I, who should have been at school, had been singled out to get my annual photograph taken for the Crighton D'Ora Album. What bothered me, was fear of the Truant Officer. Children had to go to school, and the Truant Officer was the man who enforced this law. I had no idea what would happen if he discovered t... Read More

Family Trees
Posted On 01/22/2015 01:33:43 by kiwibarb
Most people take an interest in their family history, and try to make a Family Tree. I gave that idea up, due to the complexity of extended families. Fortunately for me, and other lazy family members, one of our number set about researching the family on my mother's side and requested input from all his cousins and other relatives. Using software designed for the purpose, he put together a very thorough pictorial account of the family descended from our English patriarch who was born in London i... Read More

My favourite fictional character was Milly-Molly-Mandy, whose full name was Millicent Margaret Amanda. So what better name was there for my very own bantam hen than Milly-Molly-Mandy. I suppose I was about six years old when my love of chooks led to my parents giving me the bantam hen they had acquired to sit on the eggs laid by the big hens. Bantam hens were known to be excellent mother hens. Milly-Molly-Mandy duly sat on the eggs and they hatched into adorable fluffy little white Leghorn, blac... Read More

A Blast from the Past
Posted On 10/15/2014 17:00:16 by kiwibarb
  The fourth anniversary of my husband Lyn’s death, coincided with my finally learning how to operate the DVD player that he bought about 6 years ago, and it has been idle ever since. I never did like anything technical, and never had to meddle with setting anything up while I had Lyn. During the last four years I have either done without, or found someone to do the things I can’t do myself.
The NOTH page I set up to help me cope with my loss, has been a wonderful help. I can go back... Read More
