The problem isn't that it is one person - it is a number of people. Four have now spoken to police about the allegations. The reporter on the show was an ex-child abuse protection cop of 23 years standing - he did not turn it into a witch hunt, but was balanced. There were also BBC staff making some damning allegations, not just the producer of that particular show.
For me, the most heart-rending moment was when one of the girls (now a middle-aged woman) who was a 14 year old in a special school said they understood that they had to pay a price for the privilege of being around Savile and getting to ride in his Rolls Royce. She was so matter-of-fact in the way she said it.
Much more emerging about his activities now isn't there Tony?
It's impossible to disbelieve so many credible stories. Why am
I not surprised? Furthermore, there are more DJ's now implicated...
all very sordid.

I will be looking for your Wedgewood - I buy/sell on eBay too under same name.
Best of luck for great sales. Holidays are just around the corner do that may help....
Quincy...how would I go about putting my Toby Jugs on e-bay.
Something I have been meaning to do, but not sure how to go
about it. I have an account but haven't a clue what to do.
I bet those 3 inch heels looked great btw.
I used to wear 6 inch heels in my job, in fact I still have them,
I might put them on e-bay, hahaha
Nowadays, I would fall off 2 inch heels.

Thought I would share this little gem before I go.
I noticed an 'offer' in my e-mail this morning of
a free digital camera if I signed up to a certain
website. The name of it is similar to my dvd renting service, I assumed another rental service.
I signed up.
Had a confirmation e-mail, very long, came to the end and realised with horror I had signed up to a dating service. hahahaha
That's a first. Have taken steps to remove myself from it...bang goes the camera.

I imagine you're "sawing logs" as mom used to say (zzzzzzzzz) but I meant to reply and even started an email. Looked them up on eBay and now know what a Toby Jug is. My aunts and uncles had all kinds of them. I thought of you when I came across a John Lennon one.

The budding prices range a lot. Are your vintage? Antiques? Use that to you advantage and even do a little of your own research on eBay to see what other sellers are charging. Are you going to ship international or just UK? I've done both. Take and upload some really good photos -- reference the china manufacturer if the labels are still there.

Good luck -- will follow up with email.

Hi Quincy...and thanks for this. Yes, antiques, my aunt left them to me and that is some time ago, they were antiques then. The detail on them is really stunning, they are Dickens characters.
I would hand them down but they do not appeal to any younger members of my family.
You mention good starting points and I am grateful for that...needed to know if I can set a secure price really.

Good Morning all here.

The funeral went off as well as any funeral
can go, but it is always sadder somehow, when
parents see one of their young passing.

A great touch of Autumn here now the
colours changing gradually..
BTW, thank you so much El, for you
lovely and much appreciated comment on the
poem I left here, also to DW, a sincere thanks,
glad you enjoyed it.

El,
SO very sad to hear of the developing news
on little APRIL, the missing child..
WHAT can be said, the parents not only knowing
the worst news now to be expected,
as the police made known but a torturous week-
for them-
leading up to it..

There's a strange irony there too, El,
when the cameras scanned the hills and valleys
and streams
giving us panoramic views, whilst searching, searching
for the child, WALES never looked more
fairytale like and so very beautiful, almost
giving lie to the story of the missing little child;

but your people where you live
showed the great stuff they are made of,
leaving NO STONE unturned [literally]
in order to find her...
people constantly giving.. more and more of themselves
in all different ways in order to help:

Hoping everyone is well..

Regards to all.

It seem a trend that most sellers will start at .99 to encourage a lot of bidding. You can always set what's called a reserve - in other word you will not sell them for say less than $100. I'm just pulling a number here and I apologize for not knowing the currency in Wales.

eBay will convert currency and so does PayPal so all you enter is your cost even if you sell to someone in the States or China. I have sold to and purchased from people all over.

I was thinking of you last night Grace. You've spent your life in Ireland? CNN re-ran the program on the Belfast Project. Pretty eye-opening - I was just a kid in the States during the height of the violence. Now that the US ordered Boston College to release information, I can only hope the it doesn't tip the stability of the area in the wrong direction. There is enough violence in the world.

Did I ever mention I have a cousin who traveled to Ireland just to get married? At the time there was a residency requirement & you had to print a notice in the newspaper. Are those requirements still in place? I guess it was a 'destination wedding' before destination weddings were popular!

Good Morning Lady Eleanor...
I hope that this post finds you feeling great and having fun...
We have a chilly day to look forward to here in the Valley.. Our high temperature is only supposed to be in the 50's...
Seems Canada sent us a big ol gift of Northern Air... so we are having a cold snap.. It's kinda overcast and gray, but I'm hoping it will clear up some and that we will have a little Sunshine today..
I hope that you will have a great day filled with Sunshine Laughter and Love...
Sending you and yours all my best wishes...

Such an interesting post RM..

firstly, yes I was born & reared here..
and happy to spend the rest of my days here in The Green Isle.

I think the 'printing of one's intentions
in a newspaper, has gone, thankfully.
but indeed, I agree, it would take precious little
to topple the peace...
and NONE OF US [I'm sure]
wish to return to such troubled times.

Grace....I was thinking, during the televised recording of part
of the church service held in Machynlleth today....that little
child, April Jones, has unknowingly brought all and sundry together
this past week....as you yourself know, this is a small country and
people have pulled together from every part of Wales, communities
have got together and provided food for the search parties, the police,
the mountain rescue and all services....driven long distances to deliver them...and everybody, including burly police officers are
wearing a pink ribbon to symbolise HOPE....where there's hope...
sadly no news as yet.
As you say, and say it so well, it is indeed a strange irony that the
scenery was portrayed so beautifully under such tragic circumstances..it just seems unreal, and thoughts are so with the family at this dreadful time.
The scenery is dramatic...as has been the week, but a drama which has been forced upon us...how could one person be responsible for such upheaval and heartache?
Just putting my thoughts into words here, and possibly very badly. your understanding of the situation has been so much appreciated as always.

I'm with you ..and thanks again Quincy...I have a very good camera which I stupidly hosed having placed it in a hanging basket for 'safety' then put the sprinkler on it forgetting it was in there. duh...have to get this repaired then I can take pics of the jugs, will do this during the week. Something I have intended to do for a long time now.

The day is always brighter for seeing you Rose, I mean it.....

SURELY, you mean.. El ..

'putting your thoughts into words.. so wonderfully
and realistically'

one of the most draining weeks in your area .. no doubt, El

Strange, that sometimes, in a great tragedy..

we see the true worth of others.

GOOD NIGHT, warm thoughts.

An EARLY'ish' night after a long weekend.

Peace ..........

Thanks for your post:
It was fascinating to our family that the two went on their own and spent the month in Ireland due to the legal requirement at the time. Today 'destination weddings' are all the rage and the whole family travels but back then it was quite a novel thing to do.

I think I mentioned my maiden name is really Quinn...half Irish half German--a brood of stubborn drunks ! ;-)

For better or worse, world history is pretty fascinating and I am an avid reader of both fiction and non fiction. It's what makes us all who we are and some of the turmoil has gone on so long we don't even remember what the the fighting was about.

There are many people still living who were involved in and remember the turbulent civil rights movement and I can't imagine what you and so many lived through in northern Ireland in the early '70s....
