Introduction
I live in Newcastle upon Tyne UK close to the quayside. Moved here from Durham after I retired to be closer to my family. I enjoy exploring www to learn new things, although mymemory and attention span are not good, I still manage - by setting up bookmarks and reminders. Dear old Goog is my memory now.

Didn't realise our Jelly Babies were originally supposed to be bears. Gummy bears could have been around  years earlier.
Bit ghoulish this one :)

One of my favourite authors did this today :)
 
Planning to drop a few sets of paperbacks off to my neighborhood's Little Free Libraries today. I did this a couple of years ago and they got snapped up. It's fun: it's like a caper film but in reverse: I'm stealthily putting things there instead of stealing them. :)
