You have really emersed

Posted on Sun, 24 Sep 2017

You have really emersed yourself in your family background. It's always fascinating to find out information about your family tree. My dad did something very similar and discovered so much he didn't know.

Never a truer word was said

Posted on Sun, 17 Sep 2017

Never a truer word was said than: Ours is not to wonder why, ours is just to do and die.

I remember when I was going through the teenage years, all that I wanted was to have fun. A part of me bluffed my way through those years. It was the...

After reading this, I have so much admiration for this man and commend him for proving those teachers wrong. It's so not right for anyone to knock the spirit out of a person.

Your writing was so moving

Posted on Sun, 20 Aug 2017

Your writing was so moving Elsie. I haven't been to London since the late 1980s, so have no idea what it's like now.

I have seen Schindler's List and was horrified at what I saw. I can't imagine in a million years what the Jews actually...
