  1. Apologise quokka, for the confusion. From my notes at the time <<""Basingstoke turned north, to land at Perth’s Jandakot airport; Perth’s large general aviation airfield, ten miles south of Perth’s city center and the same distance southwest of Perth International Airport."" Perth Centre (bridge) [-- south 9.9 miles---> Jandakot Airport <--- south south west 11.5miles--] Perth Airport>> Since Jandakot Airfield is one mile long and Perth Airport (Domestic and International ) is Two Miles across, when I was checking, I did not feel the approximation was incorrect

    oops we got it wrong. This is the story from the Independent News Paper.https://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/the-essay-the-fantome-menace-1123862.html Which is more reliable than Wiki, but not always correct. We knew about it in October 2012 but it slipped thru. 😥 😧.

    Pilgrimage

    “I’ve only heard rage sea here, so off to ask my friend Google what exactly that means.” Normally the expression used would be raging sea or angry sea. It means different things to different people. To me, it means crawling along the deck (to avoid being knocked off one’s feet), in the dark (even though it is midday), feeling if one is on a roller coaster, having a constant stream of stinging spray hit your face, and every minute being knocked by a heavy dodge ball. In summary, a sea that you should not be out in. I was surprised when C. James used it, as I had come

  7. "The First Time I Saw Your Face" as performed by Peggy Seeger was written by her lover Ewen MacColl (James Henry Miller) for her. Years latter Ewen MacColl said that it was addressed to Peggy Seeger as a love song to her as she was in the USA and he was in the United Kingdom. Although written for Her to perform, I always hear Ewen when I listen to Peggy Seeger, as it was deliberately written for either or both to sing, although I have never heared Ewen sing it, and although it is listed on records as Ewen performing, it is always Peggy.
