Lincolnshire Notes

I thought that this blog could take something along the lines of weather lore; it came about from me finding the little ditty below. Looking a little further it seems the there are hundreds, if not more of these as well as poetry all relating to the weather. I suppose we have all been told these, I know I was when I was younger (a long time ago now), my grandmother always had a saying for whatever occasion, not least the weather, I just wish that I could remember them all now. However, I’v

Just a short entry this time. I am at present reading a book titled "Even the birds were walking". It is about the founding of the Meteorlogical Flights carried out by the the early pioneers - that was in the hot air balloon era, following on with the early flying machines and then the First World War. There was further development in the inter-war years and I have now got to the early WW2 years. So far this has made really interesting reading, and I will post more when I have finished the book.

Lincolnshire Notes

This is not strictly a weather related item - or is it? Many of the aircraft that operated from the Lincolnshire, endured many weather related problems during their operations; bearing in mind that those operating them were in their late teens and came from all backgrounds, so had almost certainly not come into contact with detailed (at the time) synoptic charts. During some of my research into another great interest of mine - both relating to Lincolnshire and aviation, I put this short articl

Lincolnshire Notes

[size="3"]We've had an exceptionally busy time since we got back fro, our excursion to Cumbria. Just before we went away, one of our neighbours - for whom I dog walk regularly, came to see us to tell us about a little Jack Russell terrier which was looking for a new home!!!! All we were told is that he was still a puppy and was house trained. So, yes you guessed, we went to see him down near Skegness; my wife who is blind took to him right away and he was very good with her, so we made arrangeme

[size="3"]I think most people have heard at one time or another the term "Linccolnshire Yellowbelly", in fact I've used the term on some of the forums. Here is a short explamation of where the saying came from. THE ROYAL NORTH LINCOLNSHIRE MILITIA The building on Burton Road, Lincoln that is now home to the Museum of Lincolnshire Life was once the barracks of the Royal North Lincolnshire Militia. The officers of this regiment would wear bright yellow waistcoats on the battlefield. This made

Lincolnshire Notes

[font="Comic Sans MS"][size="3"]As I was taking our dog for walkies this morning, I got talking with someone who lives on our route to the local park. He originates from Nottingham and migrated to Lincolnshire some years ago now, but he was telling me how fortunate he feels to be able to visit the East Coast, Lincolnshire Wolds, Humber Estuary, the Peak District which are all within an hours drive from where we live. There is nothing strange about that you may say; but this county of ours is so
