Find out why the collective terms for artists is a 'misbelief'! 
My eldest son is working on the pieces for his final show of his fine art degree. Hopefully, this June he will graduate from art school and start earning a living as a professional artist. So it is with interest that I discov...

Did you know the collective term for swans is 'a throne'? Read this,  and other swan related trivia such as a short history of swan upping...

Who'd have guessed what the collective term for maidens is? 
‘Maidens’ is a delightfully old-fashioned word that sums up images of wholesome milk-maids blushing coyly when the handsome squire glances in her direction (or is that just me?) In the 15th century the change from girl to wom...

A blog post inspired by a very full bin. 
Rubbish! Refuse in on my mind a lot at the moment, because over the Christmas period our dustbin has not been emptied. When the dustmen come tomorrow, it will be a full 4 weeks since their last collection. Not great. ...

What do a short history of wigs and some angels on the Isle of Wight have in common?
They both feature in the "Fall in Love with History" most popular posts of 2014
A time of reflection. As 2014 draws to a close I hope it has been a happy and fruitful year for you all. On a personal level, it's been a year of changes and for a cautious person I made some bold decisions. Strange really, ...

What links Warhammer to Victorian coffee sellers? 
My youngest son is into Warhammer.  Apparently the hobby isn’t as popular in the US, and recently he overheard one American gamer explaining to another, how Warhammer outlets are: ‘In every town in the UK, they’re like Starbu...
