Re: Email Hacked

Greetings. One of my email accounts was obtained over 16 years ago so that I could start doing a search behind the Iron Curtain for scientific farming papers that I had had English Abstracts on since 1964. I choose to use a [not so common] subject for my email handle [not my name] and by getting my ...

Re: James and janet Russell of Neilston

Greetings Thanks, local knowledge counts. If nothing else, I suppose crossing the Clyde was like paying yet another toll, so why do it, if you can conduct your business on the Paisley side.

Re: My Clydebank Photos

Greetings Sue, from one of the Alan's down under [NZ]. All the best for your project.

Hopefully when I sell my farm, I will make the journey to th...
