Yes, it's been a number of years since I updated this site. Am getting back on the case with a slightly more modern re-design but have temporarily jettisoned some of the content simply becasue I want to get something new up and running sooner rather than later. I'm sure I'll add it all back eventually in some form or another.

I'm not 100% happy with the overall appearance of the main site but it's better than it was and I can adjust things later as required.

I've started off with a few important bits like the Mr Claypole memorial, because, let's face it, everyone loves Mr Claypole. Plus I've added a Star Wars page where I built a gallery for some of my old action figure card backs.

Handy Hint for Today

If the Skin is much Injured

If the skin is much injured in burns, spread some linen pretty thickly with chalk ointment, and lay over the part, and give the patient some brandy and water if much exhausted; then send for a medical man. If not much injured, and very painful, use the same ointment, or apply carded cotton dipped in lime water and linseed oil. If you please, you may lay cloths dipped in ether over the parts, or cold lotions. Treat scalds in the same manner, or cover with scraped raw potato; but the chalk ointment is the best. In the absence of all these, cover the injured part with treacle, and dust over it plenty of flour.
