Hi all Wave I love our forum, which can be as big or small as it needs be for any subject associated with Coventry. No matter whether we live here, born here, visit here or just want to chat about here. There is little wrong with chatter, providing we are courteous & tell it as it is. BT have just announced a huge hike in prices, following from similar prices rises from other media communication providers, so some chat becomes more expensive. We may have to pay more for our landline rental & so on, but posting on our forum is as free as a bird. I have started this thread called "Today", as a facility just for us to share whatever we like, that may not have a specific title, but you just want to share what you are up to or thinking about that is Coventry related. We can always move a conversation that develops into a more appropriate category if needed. Communication is important for our own wellbeing, as people who are lonely will testify, as will their carers. So, on this glorious sunny morning I will share my delight in nearly having a whole Sunday off from organ duty. The big return from holidays has me confined to playing for just one service this afternoon, so quite a relaxed affair, compared to last Sunday with over twelve hymns plus music. I enjoy moderating too on our forum. I don't mean, wearing a flat cap or a helmet either. I love reading the posts & trying to picture your delights in what you are sharing, as well as the sadder bits where there is concern. I am looking forward to Tony's weather outlook, although he might be saying that we need to make the most of today. Have a good day all Wave

I've been cooking my first roast dinner for months. So I'm having a traditional Sunday even though I live on my own. It's 12th birthday celebrations for my carer's eldest daughter. She seems very happy with the new camera I bought her. Beth and her friends were out taking pictures at 9.30am over in the hills above Rossendale: rugged country but plenty to aim her camera at. Is that your family crest Philip. I believe it is that of the Gregory family on the railway bridge at Coat of Arms Bridge Road. Did you know that if they'd built the bridge only 30 yards further south it would have been on Lord Leigh's land?

Hi all Wave Thank you for all of your posts today, so far. I am very sorry that you have got flu Morgana. A fresh onion sandwich, followed by a whisky & lime before bedtime might ease the discomfort, as well as being nice. I am sorry for your computer problems too, Anne. Some good experts on our forum to help out there along with a trusted dealer. Arr! Sunday lunch, as the whisps from Pam's cooking are filling my nostrils as I read your post Pixrobin. A boiled ham joint is on the go here. No, I did not know the significance of the bridge position to that extent, but I did do some War Memorial Park research a while back, which I will have to have another look at. It doesn't matter where we live, far away in Canada, like Mike H, we can always come together on our forum with our experiences. That is kind to treat your carers daughter to a new camera. Bril! Happy

I do love a boiled ham joint, Philip. Tell you what, you go round to Morgana's for a fresh onion sandwich and I'll come round to yours for the boiled ham. Thumbs up

I have just returned from London where I was looking after my 6 year old grandaughters (twins). Whilst I was there the tooth fairy paid a visit to one of them and left £2!! It appears that this is the going rate in London. Is it the same in Coventry? I'm not sure but I think that my children got 20p or it may have been 50p. I can't remember the fairy ever visiting me Sad although the sum of 6d comes to mind. Oh my

Hi all Wave I am so sorry that today in Coventry is so wet a miserable, particularly for families where work schedules do not allow for another day when it is sunny. Very sad. Sad
