Our Spaniels, for some reason we have never fathomed, are collectively know as “the spangles”. There are usually 2 spangles at home, occasionally 3 when we have the liver and whites sister round, and the wife is warming to a further pup, probably early next year.* Also known as: the "Gruesome Twosome", the "Terrible Twins" or "Those Bloody Greedy Spaniels!".
Also love the mustard coloured (I think?) Vauxhall!I've found a couple - Glen and myself (so many years ago it hurts to think about it (ouch! About 40 )):

Just digressing; all that work that went into viaducts like this just for them to end up being unused after a few years (by trains). A crying shame imo.
So true. Blood, swear, tears and, for some navvies, death. The good news is that there is a preserved section in the Plym Valley, so the railway has not ‘died’ entirely and also the remainder of the route has preserved as a cycle route and not built over:Just digressing; all that work that went into viaducts like this just for them to end up being unused after a few years (by trains).

I remember Dr Who having a companion called Turlough. It was the first time I'd ever heard or seen the name. This is just the second. Is it a common Irish name?Found this today: A compilation of "true" stories collected or experienced by the author, and narrated by him on YouTube.
I'm finding them very pleasant and engaging listening.
"A short story in (simplified) Dublin dialect, related by the author, Turlough Conmee. This is one of "Thirteen Tales Told by a Dubliner", a collection of 13 stories of the supernatural. They are all "true": they stem either from the author's experience, or from tales told by his father and mother, Dublin folklore, or Irish history."
