NSR 23 (ABC), album created on October 18, 2017

Initially, the trust were intending to replicate an 1870s 4-wheeler and drew up some plans.

Ben de-Dog, album created on June 11, 2013

Please meet the new apprentice. Correction. We've decided on a promotion - Ben is now our "Morale Manager" and in charge of keeping everybody happy. His 'gotcha' day ( in lieu of an official birthday ) is 30th October 2011.

The Ben part is extended to Benjamin on formal occasions and Benji on informal ones. . He is another rescue - found tied to a fe…

Hi Gracie.
I've been somewhat pre-occupied in the last week or so, firstly with the care arrangements for my elderly father and secondly the mother of one of my closest friends died on Friday 13th April 2018.

Yes, ima do know about this problem with iphone, and it is on the list of things to be dealt with, but paid IT support can be expensive. So I do not know how long it will take.
