all hillites young and young at heart

Go, thought, on golden;

Va, settle upon the slopes and the hills,
Where olezzano tepid and soft
The gentle breezes of the soil smell!
Greet the banks of the Jordan,

Zion of the towers are landing ...
Oh, my country so lovely and lost!
Membering Oh yes dear and fatal!
Harp of the prophetic seers,

Why silently from the willows?
Memories in the chest raccendi,
Us about the times gone by!
Or similar to the fates of Solima

Traggi sound lament
O Lord t'ispiri a concento
How to infuse endure our suffering!

Little Westbourne Tce & Little Melbourne St

After at least 7 generations living in a few tiny villages in Kent, some of my ancestors made THE BIG MOVE, to Little Westbourne Tce, Paddington, then to 33 Little Melbourne St, Paddington. She (sadly) then died after having 12 children, but he remarried and set off with new wife and some of the children on the "Buffalo" (1st Fleet to South Australia) to be part of founding Adelaide. This one generation travelled more by far that all the other generations in total. But what happened to Little Westbourne Tce and Little Melbourne St? What would life have been like there in 1830 - 1835?

Have been this evening to their 100 centenary event but sadly did not meet any old classmates although still in touch with a few. However, the school has totally changed, no old house or garden at all. All modern now.

Hi Brian,

Glad you remembered the good old days. We had so much fun then. Edmonton is not the same any more. It has been some time since i have been on this site. Micky Walters sounds familiar to me also. I have lost contact with everyone I grew up with in England, but that's life. Let me know what is happening over there. Did you ever know a Michael Richer. He was in a judo club and evidently pretty good.

Keep in touch. Tanks

Hi my name is Sharon i'm 45 and i live in Middlesex (West London). I am really in need of a holiday this year but my friends are either loved up or have moved away so it's difficult to make any plans. I am hopefully going to have some leave booked in September from 11th - 21st and just wondered if there was any single ladies around my age that fancied a week in the sun somewhere. I'm not a big sun worshipper but a bit of sun and see and relaxing would be great... Obviously we'd have to meet a few times first and see if we get on. So if any ladies are interested then please contact me at  Mail-me

Honor Oak Park

Lovely area

I've lived in Honor oak for about 18 years and I can honestly say in that time I have never witnessed or heard of any crime. I have seen 1 or 2 dodgy people over the years but they undoubtedly are not from the area (these sightings are not common). There will always be crime in every part to the city, I lived in Fulham for a while and there is crime there too. Honor Oak is a quite, calm area with a lot of families.

I was in the same mother and baby home and Miss Nicholson still ran it. September 1965. I kept my baby, which was against all wishes of my family. I hope you have had some success in tracing your baby now. I remember how heartbreaking it was, on the day the babies were adopted, after the mother had cared for the baby for 6 weeks.

Keble memorial school 1944

Is there anybody around still who remembers this school then. IThe headmistress was sister Cecil lovely lady. I can only remember a Violet Shipton whomwas very tall and always seemed to be in trouble with the teacher. There was also a girl who sang Ava Maria every time we went to the aur raid shelters when the sirens went. Had a lovely voice.In those days during the battle of Britian we spent many days in the shelter. Didnt mind of course as we did not have to do school work. Getting very old now and cannot remember to many names. I do remember one time leaving school to go home when the ground across the road where a house had been bombed gave away and a few children fell down there and had to be rescued. I now live in Australia and I am 84
