    Oh I don't mean your Nan is 'common', I mean there's lots of people with that name

    Edit: See? Everyone knows someone with that name
    Well yes she probably was actually!
    It just struck me because I know she lived in and around your area when my mum was small. Although originally her family were from Yorkshire.

    Actually my nan was far from common. She grew up in India, married a guy quite a bit older than her (hmm...) who was in the army out there. He was killed in WWII and at the end of the war she temporarily housed a German POW who was waiting to be repatriated... with whom she had an affair and whose family my mum still keeps in contact with. Oh and she drove fork lift trucks during the war, made the best cup of tea in the world and had the same birthday as me.

        Oh I like the sound of your Nan I could tell you stories.................

        Moore was actually Jo's dad's name (whom I never married) and her name of course. So when I wanted to get rid of my legal name I decided that Moore was simple and common enough not to be noticed

        When we were deciding on a name change, I asked Robin if he wanted to keep his name (which was the one I wanted to get rid of) or change it. He said he wanted to change it. To Hood So I had to explain that what I meant was, did he want to change it to Moore so that he was the same as Jo and me He was only 5, poor kid, but he decided in the end he'd like to be the same as us.

        How close we came to being the Hood family

        Which rhymes with Wood............

          Aww I love stories about things like that. The woman who was like a second grandmother to me (My Aunt, actually great-great Aunt, she moved back to Germany a few years ago ) was in Germany and my Uncle was station over there after the Korean War (as an American), he was older than her, and fell in love and got married, and because she loved him so much they decided to move back over here. She couldn't speak *any* English and she was in a country that she didn't know that much about, but she had my Uncle. I interviewed her for school and did a report on her a few years back and it brings tears to my eyes because of all she's been through (WWII as a child(her Dad died in it), coming to a foreign country, having a few miscarriages (never had any kids), losing my uncle about 16 years ago to cancer, deciding to stay here because his family through the years had become her family as well, 9/11 causing her family who flew in every summer to not want to fly in so she didn't she them for about 5 years, and then finally going back to Germany). I miss her

              ...And it's funny how fast a status can change from being the thread starter with Power, to the thread's silly child by jumping on and falling off furniture...

              And great poem, TPI !
              Thanks both of you! As you can probably tell, I'm thrilled about Sanctuary. Haven't seen an episode yet, but I still love it! Thanks to Damian...who I now have a new picture of...!!

              So, saw New Moon for the first time yesterday. About fifteen minutes in I wondered, "How would Martin...Wood have directed this?" And at the end of the movie I had my answer: He would have directed it...better. (Anyone want a really, really long OT rant about how terribly written/directed New Moon was? Just say the word! )

                    lols at the name stories. I want a common last name too. My foreign name always causes my teachers to know my name before most others...

                      That was another good reason for us to change ours

                        Ah...last names...common or not...I think mine is in between. Funny part, English people can't pronounce it...it's the "ij" combination in the middle...
                        Teacher never remember my name the first class, my first name is very common in the netherlands...still...something that has to do with my personality does make them remember my name. If I have a class which I find boring and am quiet in; no name reckognition...when am I ...me...they know my name the second week of our classes..

                          Oh good grief, it's snowing! SNOWING!!! As if it thinks it's winter or something

                          In the last couple of years we've had snow in October and April, not in December FCOL! Next thing we know, it'll be snowing at Christmas

                          Oooooh lookeeee.....

                            It's snowing here too Jumble. I West London? Unheard of this time of year. It's actually settling... on my clematis which is still flowering! I hope my strawberry plants will survive.

                            No doubt it means Charles will phone me up in about half an hour to say traffic is mad and he won't be home at two pm as expected.


                            EDIT; I just gave Benjabubs a hot chocolate (as a warm up because we went outside in the snow for a bit) and he's just announced he's finished it and now wants to go to the beach. Umm...

                              It's settling here too. Farnham has come to a standstill already Why couldn't it wait until next week when all the school/nursery runs are done and I don't have to go out in it?

                              Go on, admit it, you want to go to the beach too don't you? I'm sure it's not snowing in Malibu

                                I have a final today () so hopefully I pass it okay, considering I didn't even make an attempt to study. Ad I have two tests to study for tomorrow, so won't be on much today. :rollseyes: Do you see how this thing called "school" takes away from my fandom time?
