No... I'm russian/german and Jim's brit ancestors were named Janney... they were well known quakers.

But I do love all things food. Wanna see where we went for Fathers Day brunch?

Oh I checked that out the day Jim posted it, don't worry!
And salivated. And envied (s'okay, I don't believe in Hell)

ETA - I think he just listed some things from the menu, because I don't remember the layout/ colours.
Now I'm just MORE envious.
Not least because brunch is an American concept, so the best I ever had was in San Francisco, and I rave about it to this day. Tell you what, you've just got yourself on the list. The visit list. Monster will drive me over to see you. [snort]

Thanks Monnie. I've done a coupla bus videos now. I might have to change my middle name to "Interesting".

All'arrabbiata? Yeah okay I looked it up, but I knew Arrabbiata wasn't right because it's my fave sauce

And yes, we do. If y'all pay me a salary I will sneak into work canteens for your benefit. Peas with all, even on teh Death Star.

Is it shallow of me not to fancy Izzard in drag? I dated a man who looked very like him in mufti. I fancied the cock off him. But put some slap on Eddie and all of sudden he's still funny... but not sexy.

Is it strange of me to still fancy him when he is in drag? :P

Yes. You are strange.
Then again, I didn't fancy Ianto before he got it on with Captain Jack, and now I think he's the eye-candy Captain John claimed he was.

So we can be strange together.

As discussed in chat last night - I took a walk as the sun was coming up.
I have no idea what was wrong with me last night - I'd had a wonderful birthday, I was just a bit out of sorts. Stayed up all night to counter the fear of trying to sleep, but then ended up having a horrific guilt-dream about my bro - who is so rarely in a bad dream of mine. All dream: He wanted to know why I'd borrowed £1000 off him when I could have sold Diz instead. He said he lent it to me because he thought I'd never seen so much money before, but then he found out Grandad had given me £1000 and he'd seen my bank statements and I got nearly that amount every month anyway. And then had a go at me for bidding for something for £12 on eBay. He said I was funding international terrorism.

ANYWAY.
These came first.

The park next to the canal is so cool.
Given my druthers I'd sit there with a camera and enjoy the kids enjoying it. But sadly, these days that would get me arrested. So I enjoyed it alone at 05.00 or thereabouts.

The canal. And a snail.

Greetings everyone………..

First of all, I should explain that I have been dipping in and out of the Cellar for some time and when I last ‘lurked’ I was surprised to find this thread by Sundae Girl as I too was born in Aylesbury. I haven’t been able to make a contribution until now, due to family illness and ultimately a bereavement.

I was unleashed on an unsuspecting world at the Royal Bucks Hospital, (Post #108 Page 8) longer ago than I care to admit and I had my tonsils removed at Tindal Hospital (Post #163 Page 11) when I was about seven years old! I wonder if they still have them?

I’ve spent my entire life in the area and now live only about five miles from Aylesbury. My dad’s side of the family established themselves there in the 1890s and I have a photo of my great grandfather and his daughter (my grandmother) standing outside a well known Aylesbury landmark. I don’t often post on forums so when I have worked out how to display photos, I’ll do so in a separate post.

Change of gear…………….

I’ve had the good fortune to visit the USA on four occasions since 1999 starting from Denver.
So, anyone here from north eastern Colorado, western Nebraska, western South Dakota or Wyoming (all of it!)?

Best wishes,

Carruthers

Welcome to the Cellar, Carruthers.
I'd love to see that picture of your great grandfather and your grandmother. If you have a problem posting it just give a shout and we'll give you a hand.

Thanks for the welcome, Bruce and DanaC.

As promised ………

The main picture shows the Horse and Jockey pub on Wendover Road, Aylesbury, my great grandfather Henry, who was the licensee, his daughter Hetty, a dog called Bob (honest) and a lad, so family legend has it, called ‘Lazy Lambourne‘. Hetty appears to be about three or four years old which dates the photo at 1895/6.

The original has a postcard backing which leads me to believe that it was an advertising medium and, since it has appeared in a couple of local books, other examples do exist.

The second photo shows the establishment as it now stands.The site of the pub is at a crossroads of sorts, although these days you would be hard pushed to describe it thus. I think it was in the seventies that the junction was ’improved’ by carving a new connecting length of road from Stoke Road to Walton Street. This marooned two pubs, several businesses and a number of houses on what is essentially a traffic island. It rejoices in the name of the 'Walton Gyratory System’ and it must be sheer hell living or working there.
Incidentally, the pub was renamed ‘The Aristocrat’ some years ago which I imagine was to avoid confusion with another pub of the same name situated on the Buckingham Road on the north side of the town.

Something there which I hope will complement SG's great thread.

All the best,

Carruthers

Wonderful contribution Carruthers! Welcome to a modern day version of an internet Horse and Jockey pub. Keep those contributions coming from your local neck of the woods. We love SG's pics and it would be great to have some more from you, with great stories attached as well.
