General Snip-bits

b3General Snip-bits is a section that is about writing, and writing related subjects. Eventually, I hope to populate it with a range of subjects that will be of interest to anyone who loves the written word.

Currently there are only three categories which include: Interesting Articles, Date with Destiny and I Quote.  They are explained in more detail on their relative pages. If any members have any suggestions for new categories in this section, I will be only to pleased to receive them.

This will take time (excuse the pun).

dwdpng'Date with destiny' is a calendar of dates and events, with an on-line hyperlink to a website covering the subject. I have covered every day between Jan 1st--dec 31st with at least one important event, so there should be something for anyone trying to write fillers or short articles. If members would like to supply dates with relevant hyperlinks, I'll be extremely grateful for the details.

 

intartWith Interesting articles, I hope to touch on a wide range of topics that specifically deal with writing issues.  If members feel you can contribute, or would like to submit an article on a particular interest you may have, submit it and after review, It may well appear as an article here. Currently there are six articles appearing here, I hope soon there will be more.

An episode from the dairies of the wild Welsh Wanderer

In February 1987, I was employed to deliver a research vessel from Milford Haven, West Wales, to Eilat on the Red sea in Israel. Little did I realise that eight months further on, I very nearly started another Arab-Israeli conflict!

decpic

December was originally the tenth month of the year in the Roman calendar until a monthless winter period was divided between January and February. It gets its name from the Latin word "decem" which means ten.� However, when the Romans added January and February to the calendar, it became the twelfth month. The name remained the same.
