Shoreham Airshow 2007
Me looking brave before taking to the air (and the wing) of the plane. Wow, it was cold !! But the whole experience was totally exhilarating.

Jan's Blog

Computers and the internet are amazing things. One of my concerns with putting together this site was that it could remain current, yet with all my travelling I've often much to say, but little time to say it. Years ago when reading the news it would take me days on end to reply to the kind letters people sent. Now, with the magic of the modern age, I can keep you up to date with what I'm doing and other events in my life.

LAWRENCE OF ARABIA

Date: 17th April 2011

LAWRENCE OF ARABIA

I suppose this is how most of us will always remember his name but his grave is a very simple one in the new graveyard a stone’s throw from the church of St. Nicholas at Moreton. There’s a short but informative link as to why he is buried so inauspiciously in this little Country churchyard http://www.moretondorset.co.uk/moreton/

Not far away is the cottage in which he lived which is kept as a memorial by The National Trust. Unfortunately we realised this too late to pay a visit. So this is a good excuse to revisit St. Nicholas Church next time I go down to visit my friend.

Unfortunately the Tea Rooms were closed on Mondays – a fact which was not displayed on the site when I looked up the situation of the Church. However, on searching for a nearby hostelry we came across a very welcoming Inn called The Seven Stars – had a very pleasant lunch and met the most amazing Gentle Giant of a dog called Dexter. I’ve never encountered an English Mastiff before and was bowled over by the friendliness of this massive creature

I’ll display here a shot of Lawrence’s Grave and show you one of Dexter in the Gallery.
