Good Morning All...

How would you explain the difference between 'Complete' and 'Finished'

Just a thought.

Wishing all a pleasant, and most of all,a peaceful, day.

hey hope all the tension finds you well
just wondering if you were in New Jersey from the evac of kids from GB during WW2
What tension? lol

I wasn't aware of kids being evacuated as far afield as the US during WW2, although after the war many were sent to Canada and Australia on the surmise they were orphans, that their parents hd been killed during the Blitz. In may cases these children provided the new 'work force' on farms etc. Recently there have been efforts made to find these people, in an effort to reunite them with any family they may have left in the UK.
Mostly kids were evac to coastal resorts or to the countryside.
Mothers too in many cases, especially if pregnant. It is my brother's proud boast he was born in one of the grandest hotels on the coast, which was used for housing evacuees. He hasn't come down to earth since!..:)

Dewa Roman Experience in the medieval city of Chester....will wait

before travelling anywhwere.
Have a wonderful day...

Hi el. Yes, the British and Australian governments had a very cruel policy as regards to "orphans". They actually "Deported" them because it was cheaper than looking after them in Britain.:-(

Hi Reb...that's an excellent link, says it all really.
It really is absolutely shameful how these children were
treated, and to go on as long as 1967.
I realise the country was bankrupt but that is no excuse for the
subterfuge, the lies.

alrighty then! I'm glad that my writing "for the ladder" days are long gone. It's now do and "create" with abundant boiler-plate, when I need ... to write (to live).

Good morning/afternoon Kitchen-eers!

I was reading up further and saw where many were evacuated to
the USA and to South Africa as well as the Dominions.....
that surprised me greatly, crossing the Atlantic during those
times of danger from the U-Boats. Presumably she stayed in
New Orleans?

Oh it 'twas a lovely morning here before the sun rose over the hillside with a pleasant slight breeze as I sipped my coffee. Aye, there are some scant light red to pale yellow leaves on the edge of my wood patch I spy lying on the ground.
But August summer has returned after an Autumn tease. "Feels like" temp in the mid-90s today -- the highest of the week as told by the color TV.
So, I'm staying in for awhile until: I've an afternoon appointment for dental care that I will tend to.
Friday will be car servicing in the morn; afternoon will likely be shopping for "wing-tips" that will take the cake and for sure birthday gift shopping for the twin grandsons.
Your new found family are "stays-with" for awhile? And have lads/lasses that are school-age? Great Googily Moogily!! How fun is that? See, makes for new skills like pizza making and delivering skills already learnt :)
When you do make the trip to Dewa Roma, will love to read the Experience!

bad info: actual high temp in afternoon will be mid-90s with "feels-like" edging over 100F. Very 'close'; air you can wear.
