FIRST ANNIVERSARY: TIME TRAVELLING WITH KIDS

My Aunt Hilda turns ninety today, and this blog turns one. Yes, it was a whole year ago that Time Travelling With Kids first appeared.

TRIVIA TRAIL # 22: PRINSJESDAG

Despite the Armada fiasco of the sixteenth century, the Spanish were unable to accept that Britannia ruled the waves. Spain and England went on warring with […]

HAPPY GRANDPARENTS DAY

It’s Grandparents Day, so here are mine. I never met my father’s parents as they immigrated to Auckland, New Zealand before I was born. My second brother claims they took one look at him and left the country, but having had eleven children, nine of whom survived to adulthood, they had about thirty grandchildren, and […]
