Default Re: What are the Lancsy Lads Up to Next?

Morning people. Yes Mike-I can well understand how things went yesterday as used to watch many caskets get shipped back to the USA and also guarded them and even witnessed idiots trying to Spit on them in the states so I don,t think it,s gotten that bad over here. The children are always the ones that feels it most, but time is a great healer though it will never heal the resentment I have for the way my fellow ex-veterans and I were treated over vietnam. Good luck to anyone fishing today and mustn,t forget to renew my EA license before the 31st.

Apologies for my rants, but the way my ex-veterans and I were treated for a very long time really p1sses me off! The powers that be may think that all is forgiven-well forgiven may be up to an extent, but Never forgotten!

Ah yes 'Quiver'
Almost always misrepresented in the annals of history as so many things are and I'm sure the feathered stick throwing fraternity are innocent of blame for half believing the falsehoods perpetuated by urban myth. 
In fact it all began with a Roman by the name of Antraxius Kiverium who settled in Ainsworth on the outskirts of Radcliffe. His family name changed over the years to Kiver but their reputation of gamblers did not. In fact Kiver in old English remains a word meaning to cover a bet. 
As the centuries passed a branch of the family who settled behind what became the Mount Zion Gasomiter began trading as leather workers and Kiver makers. This became the accepted term for something to cover ones arrows rather than to cover a bet. As time drifted on the word became written as a quiver, probably due to the local dialect.

AH if we were to believe this fabrication of pure fantasy we would be as daft as its author. However, there is a grain of true in between the fantasy. Kiver is a cover or to cover something.

Isn,t the original definition of Radcliffe as "asylum" as in Bedlam?

Twaddle, tosh ........ Nope

This one had the entire International Archery online community scratching their noddles for months and I had to personally had to visit the Sorbonne to verify the etymology of the word QUIVER as a receptacle to carry arrow.

That's two clues now ........ chemical warfare ..... Sorbonne ??????

Yes Alban. How much more proof could one need. I blame the French.

Can I beg your attention for one minute. Below is the list of people wanting to go to Ladybower on the 1 April.Can I ask those on the list to confirm they still want to go? Any others that want to go please let me know. Boat numbers are crucial to the day and I want to be sure we have enough.
