"Longbottom Leaf! The finest weed in the Southfarthing."
The 'brain drain' conundrum!
I'll keep this brief, as this is not supposed to be a post solely to get views. Remembrance Day is very important to me, but I also just started a new job today, and had to mark my moment of silence while working. I don't have a lot of pictures; My grandfather burned them after … Continue reading Lest we Forget: A small tribute to a man I never knew.
