Re: Scones

Yes Meg this is the best recipe. Come out perfect everytime, even though my ingredients are not the same measures as GB. We dont have pints either but Its near enough to a quarter litre of milk. Everyone enjoys them.

Re: Looking Back - Herald files

Looking back to 1982 on Tom McGrattans original insertion, I read that there was to be a new shopping centre in Hamilton Street opposite Prestos housing 20 new indoor shops all fully heated and giving work to 40 construction companies.

This young chinese lady Lena Yokoyama, went up on the hospital roof at Cremona and played four tunes to raise money for the medical staff in Lombardy. This is my favourite by Italian Composer Ennio Morricone.

1-2-3

Did you know that in just 6 months we have lost three lovely members of Threetowners? First Morag in November, then Bernard Walsh in January, now Milda.

Andrea Boccelli milan Easter 2020

Watched Andrea Boccelli singing Panis Angelicas and Ave Maria in an magnificent empty Milan Cathedral. Quite surreal and sombre.
