Captain Dave had the boys dancing across the deck today. This veteran crew had almost no problems hauling in their fish, and if they did he heard it. Well even if they did well they heard it! This crew makes it an annual event and has gone through the gammit of trip variations! I spoke to Twig, he was ok with it. Grand Poobah wants answers to “Who dun it! I don’t know anything.

Monograph No 32 December The Society’s first Monograph for some years has been printed and accompanied the Winter newsletter. Sandown Racecourse was once farmland attached to Sandon Priory, whose entire bretheren died of the plague in We can only assume that it remained farmland until the s, since there is no record of dramatic happenings in the intervening years. In the land came up for sale, and a battle royal ensued. Esher had a population of roughly people at the time, who were filled with horror when they were faced with the possibility of the construction of either a lunatic asylum, or a small town ‘complete with a fine church’, or, most radical of all, a racecourse to be run by a group of young London Society men who were friends of the Prince of Wales.
Incredibly, quite a few people fought long and hard for an asylum in preference to a racecourse, because at the time the racecourse epitomised all that was worst about low-life:

In , lot 9 and 11 along the north side of the concession road in Malahide designated as the Talbot Road were granted to Daniel and Wright Davis of Niagara, while neighboring lot 10 was granted to John and Hannah VanPatter of Pennsylvania. These lots included Catfish Creek, the crucial source of power in the era of water-powered mills, and this locale became the site of the settlement that would become Aylmer. Fifteen years later, sufficient Malahide lands had been settled to support the first industrial and commercial ventures in the area.
But others, more loyal, British residents, in honour of Lord Aylmer, Governor General of the Canada from to , thought the name Aylmer more appropriate and therefore had that name registered as the location of their Post Office. Fittingly, Philip Hodgkinson became the first Post Master and Aylmer, so stamped, became steadfastly loyal and British. Meanwhile, as noted by commentators of the time, Malahide was widely settled with and cleared, timber exported, grain harvested, orchards planted, and sheep tended.
Southwest of Hodgkinson Corner at what is now the corner of Rogers Road and Brook Line, first Ashael Lewis and then Daniel Carson tapped the power of the creek now known as Bradley Creek and from , at a millpond still recognizable, raised a carding and fulling mill and a sawmill. At Jamestown, two miles up the Catfish from Lake Erie, there was also enterprise and settlement, but there was little at Catfish Harbour Port Bruce ; for forty years, it was the neglected reserve of an absentee landowner, Colonel John Hale.

A fishing weir, fish weir, fishgarth or kiddle is an obstruction placed in tidal waters, or wholly or partially across a river, to direct the passage of, or trap fish. A weir may be used to trap marine fish in the intertidal zone as the tide recedes, fish such as salmon as they attempt to swim upstream to breed in a river, or eels as they migrate downstream.
History[ edit ] The word weir comes from the Anglo-Saxon wer, one meaning of which is a device to trap fish. V-shaped structures in rivers could be as long as 60 m and worked by directing fish towards fish traps or nets. Such weirs were frequently the cause of disputes between various classes of river users and tenants of neighbouring land. Basket weir fish traps are shown in medieval illustrations and surviving examples have been found. Basket weirs are about two metres long and comprise two wicker cones, one inside the other — easy for fish to get into but difficult to escape.
Surviving examples, but no longer in use, can be seen in the Menai Strait , with the best preserved examples to be found at Ynys Gored Goch Red Weir Island dating back to around The Magna Carta of includes a clause embodying the barons’ demands for the removal of the king’s weirs and others: All fish-weirs shall be removed from the Thames, the Medway, and throughout the whole of England, except on the sea coast.

Burritos Burritos, as we Americans know them today, pair ancient culinary traditions with contemporary expectations. What makes burritos different from most other Mexican-American foods is the metamorhpasis of this dish.
This is a do-it-yourself procedure. When fajitas are cooked cut into small slices. Perfect compliments for this divine composition are frijoles and Spanish rice. But they don’t call them skirt steaks in San Antonio–they call the fajitas. From what I was able to learn, it seems fajitas are something of a Southern Texas–or Tex-Mex-phenomenon. They have become popular only in the past few years, but they have become very popular. According to one meat buyer I talked to, “When I put fajitas in the ad, I’ll go through between , and a quarter of a million pounds in a week They even have fajita cooking contests in Southern Texas.
I learned that the champion for the past five years was Red Gomez, a butcher from Brownsville, Texas.
The Abbot also sat as a peer in Parliament. The last abbot, John Reeve, was given a pension, and may have lived his remaining days in this house in Crown Street. During the time of the abbey any form of local self determination by the townspeople of Bury existed solely through the Candlemas Guild and later the Guildhall Feoffment Trust.
The property of the Abbey of St Edmund was surrendered to the Crown on 4th November but much of the wealth had already been confiscated in the previous year. After the dissolution in , the rights of the Abbot returned to the Crown.

And what about the dried doum-palm fruit, which has been giving off a worrisome fungusy scent ever since it was dropped in a brandy snifter of hot water and sampled as a tea? At last, Patrick McGovern, a year-old archaeologist, wanders into the little pub, an oddity among the hip young brewers in their sweat shirts and flannel. Proper to the point of primness, the University of Pennsylvania adjunct professor sports a crisp polo shirt, pressed khakis and well-tended loafers; his wire spectacles peek out from a blizzard of white hair and beard.
But Calagione, grinning broadly, greets the dignified visitor like a treasured drinking buddy. Which, in a sense, he is. The truest alcohol enthusiasts will try almost anything to conjure the libations of old. Other guidelines came from the even more ancient Wadi Kubbaniya, an 18, year-old site in Upper Egypt where starch-dusted stones, probably used for grinding sorghum or bulrush, were found with the remains of doum-palm fruit and chamomile. The brewers also went so far as to harvest a local yeast, which might be descended from ancient varieties many commercial beers are made with manufactured cultures.
In Haverhill as the seventeenth century gave place to the eighteenth, weaving began to expand in the town, no doubt as a result of the influence of Flemish Huguenot refugees who had settled in the eastern counties late in the seventeenth century, following the French King Louis XIV’s revocation of the Edict of Nantes. In Louis decided to outlaw Protestantism in France, which had been tolerated in selected cities since the Edict of Nantes in After he revoked the Edict, Protestants were persecuted in France, and hundreds of thousands went abroad.

It seems there is an increased interest in date locating 🙂 in the shrinking world of scientology. Perhaps they are running out of prospects These two emails were forwarded to me recently, both pitching “scientology” dating sites/services. On the eve of Valentine’s Day they seem oddly.
Many buildings along South Street were hotels and flops, and Mitchell gives an indelible description of 4 Fulton when it was one such hotel in the mid th Century. He first had to fill in the land; Front Street, as its name implies, was the approximate original shoreline. The mansard roof and dormer windows near South Street were added in the s; many additions and amendations have been done over the years.
Schermerhorn Row was restored in as part of the Historic District construction. The loss of the great skyscraper observation decks is one of the unfortunate occurrences of our age. There is even discussion about running Long Island trains to the proposed hub. Even on this one short block are three buildings dating to mid s. The street is named for long-since leveled Golden Hill, which was in turn named for the color of a wheat grown in the area.
