the nightmare as begun this morning

where i live on a large estate, old masonettes where taken down long time ago.
-
years ago plans where made to have something on all the spare land.
-
till now nothing as happened, thats till today.
-
at the oment all the trees on the spare land are being removed or cut down, one of the 5 spare areas as half of it with a high wire fence round, and the other half before they leave no doubt.
-
from start to finish will be at least a year, a nightmare, with noise, from as early as 7am at times. i think i need a transfer to a smaller place lol. the double glazing wont be any good.
-
if me and prof thought the upeveal with the housing was a nightmare this will be ten times worse, and chance of sleeping on, even sundays will be fun, i dont think, smiley - dragon jim

another peice of family history now found and printed off

today i went to the library, to see if i could at last find a way to see what regiment and number my father had in the 1st world war.
-
a friend said as the records where damaged, i should use the backdoor,look for the medals lists.
-
so armed with my father full name,i looked on google, and found the nat archives, and where to put the name.
-
and there he was, and his number and regiment, and that he served from 1914 to 1920, not 1919.
-
the reason he came home a year later could be why my mother and father had a strained life for many years after(as my elder sister once told me).
-
his regiment and others where there for an extra year for the many grave registrations, and cemeteries being opened for the dead and ones in name only.
-
when i got home i rang my bros wife, and she was in for once, and she told me how to get my nephew ronald, and he answered to, and he as my fathers medals,in a case.
-
its another peice of my family history, now printed off, and to go to my neice to go with all the other searches over the years ive done. i reached back to 1700, but still cant connect the family name to france, or any french speking country, yep my last name is a french one lol smiley - dragon jim

rule number one, never leave your comfort zone,stick with who or what you know

you would think after being on here for over 5 yrs, i would learn to stay where its safe.
-
ive written peices in the past for the paper section, on me or things i know.
-
well i made the mistake of trying to step out of my comfort zone, and wrote a sci-fi peice.
-
"slap on wrist"dont do it again.
-
i wa going to delete it, but then i remember the times my mother would, point her finger and say, "waste not, want not".
-
so i,ll stick it on here, if its ok, poor, or just rubbish, say so, its already be rejected.

-
