    Tarot Cards: Collecting: Sets / Decks; Specific Cards Or Themes

    I used a lot more than three putting together my IKEA chest of drawers... the mood that put me in wouldn’t have been conducive to relationships. Maybe the 36 of dowels means you’re going to realise after an hour that one of the bits is upside down and you’re going to have a stinking row over...

    Whale Bone Gates, Arches, etc.

    There’s one at Chideock Manor in Dorset. Thought I had a pic but can’t find it, so this will have to do: https://www.bridportnews.co.uk/news/8671126.chideock-whale-of-a-task-for-bone-expert/

    The Green Man

    Haha! I didn’t mean to sound quite so needy! It’s just it’s probably in the attic, and I’m feeling a bit lazy this evening :D:D

    The Green Man

    Late to the party as ever.... I went to Jordan in 2002, mainly to see Petra, but the trip took in a lot of other places, including the Roman city at Umm Qais, the Gadara of the Bible. The ruins were quite small, and there were lots of bits strewn around, including a piece that looked like it had...

    People Who Feel Wrong

    Thank you, Lord L... I’m good these days...I always say I wouldn’t be the me I am now without having gone through all that... not sure if that’s a good thing, but I’m certainly much stronger now! He did a bunk, to Spain, leaving me to sort out everything, then reappeared to claim his half of...

    People Who Feel Wrong

    It was quite horrific. I was very naive back then and just couldn’t believe it when I discovered- just after we married- how many lies there were. He was dishonest on every level- he was done for drink driving and never told me (no clue how or when - it was only when we were stopped by the...

    People Who Feel Wrong

    That’s exactly my sister... she has many issues, and has behaved appallingly to so many people over the years. Basically whenever a group of friends calls her out on behaviour or lies, she has a HUGE and dramatic falling out with them, and moves on. Makes me sad because she’ll be 50 this year...

    People Who Feel Wrong

    Quite depressing how many people seem to do this... I guess I’ve just been lucky (ha!) but my ex husband was also a pathological liar... he even lied about having had a child before we got together, who died of meningitis aged five... he told mutual friends not to make too much fuss about their...

    People Who Feel Wrong

    Are you friends with my sister?! You’ve described her to a tee.... unfortunately, despite my best efforts she blames me for everything that goes wrong in her life, and while most of it is utterly untrue I think she actually believes what she says.

    Tarot Cards: Collecting: Sets / Decks; Specific Cards Or Themes

    Honestly? Despite my best efforts, I’m just not very good at reading the cards.... I’m going to keep trying - these were too expensive (and too beautiful) to languish in a drawer!

    Xenoglossy (Spontaneous Language / Accent Acquisition)

    My 13 year old niece spent nine months in hospital last year, two months of it in a coma. She had - has - autoimmune encephalitis. When she came round she’d completely lost her Midlands accent, and was broad South Wales Welsh. Maybe not that surprising as her dad’s side of the family are from...

    How Did You Discover Fortean Times Magazine?

    I got my first copy in summer 1997, found it in WH Smith. Think there was an article about Nessie in it, but can’t recall what else. It’s still here somewhere- I subscribed immediately and have every copy since. I regularly tell my stepson they’ll be his inheritance.... That said, I’ve had an...

    Is 'Vegan Meat' Just MEAT?

    Funny you should ask - an acquaintance of mine and his wife have a small business making and selling jerky, both animal derived and vegan (Susie is a vegetarian and makes fabulous fruit jerky). Anyway, their business has come to the attention of a woman on FB who describes herself as a “militant...

    I didn’t- mainly because we didn’t actually see them before we left, and then never got round to it. And they’d probably have thought I was mad :crazy:

    Unhappy Houses & Odd Happenings

    I know what you mean about “Spirit of Place”. The Preseli Hills in West Wales have it too. Life after death is something I desperately want to be real, specially having lost both my parents over the past few years. I just... have never seen or heard anything that convinces me that it’s...

    Unhappy Houses & Odd Happenings

    Well, having looked at a map, we were either on Fewster Way or Browney Croft, just before the Foss flows into the Ouse. That’s what we thought- York has been inhabited for so long, and fought over so many times that there’s a good chance someone has died there!

    Masonica

    This is pretty much how I feel about it. I promised not to tell any non-masons anything I learned during my time on the square, and so I won’t. That said, all I know is out there and available to those who want to go look.

    Unhappy Houses & Odd Happenings

    Several years ago we (me, Mr Migs and Mini Migs, who was about eight - he’s 21 today. I’m so OLD!) went to stay in York for a week. The house was a fairly new town house over three floors, kitchen and dining room on the ground floor, lounge, bedroom and bathroom on the first floor, two bedrooms...

    I used to be a lady Freemason. It was very dull, and up to Master Mason level, very few of the secrets are not in the public domain. If anyone wants to buy my old kit for a ton of money I’m happy to part with it....

    Terry Pratchett

    Suspect it’s so they can sell it to the American audience.... I’m not keen on her, or God as an American... Gabriel, however, is perfect.... So many little moments of utter perfection in this series, it’s very special.

    Terry Pratchett

    I can’t find any way of paying for it short of signing up for Prime, BUT you can pay monthly for Prime, so if you signed up for a month you could binge watch it... It’s definitely worth it. And it gets better episode by episode.

    The Madeleine McCann Disappearance

    Ok, well.... I knew nothing about this case before I read about it on here. I read some of the newspaper coverage and then downloaded her mother’s book. From that it was obvious why it never got the headlines that Maddie McCann did. They’re a very working class, down at heel family, and reading...

    The Madeleine McCann Disappearance

    Dunno if anyone saw the Channel 5 documentary about Charlene Downes last night? It was utterly horrible, and cast serious doubt on the accepted story of her disappearance. Just watched it now, and it’s made my blood run cold.

    Watch Weirdness

    I always had trouble with watches of the wind-up variety. They’d gain time, lose time, stop.... it’s got to be a battery watch for me. And yes, @Lord Lucan streetlights turn off for me, if I’m stressed....

    Strange Coincidences?

    Of course! This is Bettie- formerly Petra. Which reminds me of the next coincidence... yesterday the charity had a litter of puppies dumped at the Romanian kennels. I sponsored one, and named her (sponsorship costs £30, covers vaccinations and you get to name the pup). All are now sponsored, and...

    Strange Coincidences?

    Recently we decided it was time to get another dog. Our greyhound, Henry has (as I mentioned on another thread) bone cancer, and our border collie, Sweep adores him, and will be bereft when the time comes. So, my brother in law (living in Kent) has adopted two dogs from Romania and we decided to...

    A friend of mine had some reiki sessions following the deaths of her parents fairly close together. She has described to me seeing and speaking with both parents over several sessions, until her father told her that she’d be fine now, and he wouldn’t be seeing her again for a long time. Sure...

    Who You See Before You Die

    When my mum was in hospital, about a week before she actually passed, we were called in during the night because the nurses thought that the end was nigh. Me, my dad and my sister sat round the bed, listening to her breathing getting shallower.... then suddenly she took a deep breath, opened her...
