Re: [GRP] Insomnia Collection Vol. 5 - tg

Churchwardens' Accounts PL OK! Thanks for that Tricia. Interesting how often they had to mend the Book of Martyrs, and how often they cleaned the eagle. I had a list of British monarchs open to see which one was being rung on the different occasions! :lol: I noticed as well how frequently the Book ...

Re: [GRP] Insomnia Collection Vol. 5 - tg

Thanks! With two or three minor exceptions, I have not included anything written by the author. I have however, provided a short initial introduction written by some later church-wardens to give a brief summary of the recording but have mostly concentrated on the accounts themselves. This confuses ...

Re: [GRP] Insomnia Collection Vol. 5 - tg

Hi Tricia The contribution that I would like to submit to this project is a long list of items / descriptions / values but the author has at various points added various supplementary notes to some of these item entries. Is it OK to omit these notes (& various footnotes) from the recording as these ...

Re: [SOLO] Neighbourhood – A Year’s Life in and About an English Village by Tickner Edwardes - dc

Cute ending. Well, that's one way to describe it!! :lol: A nice book for these times. When I started this recording, I didn't think that it was anywhere near the quality of some of author's other books that I have previously narrated. But as the months (in the book) progressed I was finding that th...

How quickly the months (and years) pass. Yes - It's not even September yet and here we are celebrating Christmas with these final two sections! :D (You might be well advised to have your Librivox Issue Industrial Strength Ear Defenders to hand when PLing the final section!) :shock: Thanks for PLing...

Re: [SOLO] Neighbourhood – A Year’s Life in and About an English Village by Tickner Edwardes - dc

The summer went by rather quickly. Well, it did really - and now with these two sections we 'fall' into autumn! (Excuse the pun!) :) And, I almost hate to mention it but there are only a few days to go before Christmas arrives (in this project at least)! Thanks for PLing 17 & 18 - Sections 19 & 20 ...

Thanks for PLing 11 & 12 - Sections 13 & 14 now uploaded. Well, we finally get to July and one of the highlights of the summer season - the annual inter-village cricket battle - err... I mean match! There's nothing neighbourly at all about this type of game - as I well remember from my own experienc...

Thanks for PLing 9 & 10 - Sections 11 & 12 now uploaded.

Bit of a contrast to the previous two sections - here you get to take part in a 'full-on' sheep dip stampede, the old fashioned way! :)

Halfway through the year now.
