I'm still thinking about the Miracle and how it could have happened.
Maybe warrant a call to Bell,"not wanting to appear a fool"as in (The King's New Clothes) Danny Kaye!!
I am trying to parallel the event.
My recently deceased brother's take on "The Five Loaves and Two Fishes".
How many Ashtonians would go on a days walk from Ashton to Hartshead Pike without a snack.?
His explanation was the multitude all had snacks,but only two from dukky decided they would share theirs.
Sorry Dukky. It just sprang to mind.

Is this a miracle.
Yesterday I was calling a Government agency(Canadian) I was on speaker so my wife could hear and normally we join a queue  of callers.I dialed the 1 800 + + + it rang and then was answered by an accent same as mine.
Went through the usual with a wrong number,then I decided to ask her about her accent.
I happened to have been connected to 011 44 161 330 ****
Spring Bank cres. AUL

Is this a miracle.!!!???
My wife suggested I buy a Lotto Ticket.

He was a sorce of endless PM's with tech stuff etc.Starting with his name which was chosen,he had an E.Euro surname.It happens he chose the same surname as me ,and christian name as a nephew of mine in Seattle.His wife has the same as my wife!!!
He started to get more involved with Twitter and Facebook than this site,which I don't use!!.So we drifted.
I kept in touch with photo postings on Smugmug,P'Base,Yahoo,(Flickr)he seemed to have the same slant as me on subjects.
Maps,Industrial Lancashire especially around Burnley and of course Ashton.
He was here in Toronto visiting his brother which could have been but wasn't an opprtuneity to meet.
He is certainly going to be missed in my neck  of the woods.
RIP  Ian!!

I'm still here Joan.
Passed on the twitter and facebook thingy.
I tend not to log in,so that can account for the perceived loss of presence.
I just end up as a visitor.(Guest) so no trace record.

My spud hash is made with one of my frozen Beef Stews as the main part.
plus added potatoes and carrots.Cooked fresh,
if I'm lucky we have a crust on(wife says it's fattening)

BEEF STEW.
Shin,bone in,(shank here) kidney,(used to use oxtail but seems too expensive just for the gravy content) hence pigs trotters,mushrooms,onions  a few veg,carrots,turnip(white) rutabaga (swede)various squash,not to much veg as they go into the gravy after pressure cooking 35 mins.

packed in 4 portion containers and frozen.
1 container makes 2 meals.spud hash,one night Stew chips and peas (sometimes mushy) another.
Pea soup is another  story!!!
