Steve Marron

Feb 7, 2018

This was yesterday morning in the middle of London. When I say "in the middle of London" I mean the exact center. I'm standing on a brass plaque marking the geographic center of the city from where all distances to and from the capital are measured. The gentleman over my shoulder is Admiral, Lord Nelson atop his column in Trafalgar Square.

D-Otto The Potato Dumpling Master

From D-Otto:

"The grinding is finished and the roast is in the oven.  We're in a brief window before the mixing/boiling stage has to begin.  Here's me with at the controls of the Shred-O-Mat (in glorious Harvest Gold), attired in the official dumpling uniform of the day -- blue jeans, sacrificial tee and no watch."

Madame DeFarge & Abejo

  Madame DeFarge's License Plate

Story from Abejo (Nov 15, 2017):

To All: What an amazing experience I had about an hour ago. I was taking a pile of letters to the post office to mail and I walked by a restaurant on the way. A car was pulling into a stall at the restaurant. The license plate said MME DFRG. The driver was the last to get out, so I asked him what the license plate meant. He said a character from an old novel, Madame DeFarge. 

I stopped for a few moments and then decided to follow them into the restaurant. I had to know! I went up to their table (a man and two ladies) and asked if any of them worked the crossword each day and was on a crossword blog. One lady said that she did. I told her that I saw her every day on the blog because I was on the same one. She asked me my blog name and I said Abejo. She knew me at once. She is Madame DeFarge on the same blog. We had a nice talk for 10 minutes or so. They live many miles away, but were visiting their friend in Bartlett, where I live. I got her real name and she now has mine. Her husband took our picture with my cell phone. I will send it to CC. What a small world!
