Just finished latest edition of the BHT and it was great as usual. Love the pictures and especially like Dana Huntley articles. I am posting a couple of pictures of the Stonehenge site. We were in England in 1986 and I took these pictures. Plus many others of course.
During these trying times, lets be kind to each other. For everything Irish stay tuned to www.irishcentral.com.

Dear Mr. Aisling O'Toole, Thank you for my family history in your latest issue. Jan/Feb. Page 10. During WWll my Grandfather was on leave from the army, and as a young man and prone to hi jinks. He thought he could swing on the side of the bridge closest to the pier. Needless to say he slipped and was caught by his suspenders! For those lowley suspenders I might never have been born. Page 36 is a nother connection, because we spent our holidays close by in Braunton, N. Devon. One trerrible year there was a major flood which came racing down the small streams from above in the hills. This was caused they say by seeding the clouds above these hills. During the night it raced down the narrow stream bed and took away the side of a house perched on its edge. Wife and children did not survive. The husband became the sad clown with the painted smile, and was shown on television on the anniversary of the tragic event each year since. This was back in the 50's, so I do not know if he still appears on the anniversary date still? Thank you for my look back in time.
God Bless Her Majesty. England , Great Britton, & all of her Common Wealth.
I love this site!!!! Thanks for sharing!!!!
