Man about the House - November 2021

Hello everyone. Quiet month for us this month. Productivity has been savagely hit by several events. First, I unexpectedly spent two days in hospital! I won’t go into detail but it was nothing too serious. We now know what the problem is but not what has been causing it. I have a battery of more tes...

Man about the Hows - October 2021

Hello everyone and, finally, greetings from my home in Florida, where even the coolest days are warmer than the average day in my native Norfolk over the last few months! I will stop complaining about the weather! First, I hope you won't mind if I celebrate the birth of my second granddaughter in Fa...

Man about the Howze - September 2021

Three-quarters of the year gone already! Time seems to go by more quickly as I get older. Oh well. No point fighting about it. Can't fight the weather, either, which has improved a lot this month. September has been lovely here in Norfolk. I had three super weekends racing my boat on the Broads. Sad...

Man about the Howse - August 2021

Hello everyone. I really shouldn't do this, but I am going to complain about the weather again! I just spent the weekend sailing at a regatta on the Norfolk Broads. The temperature barely reached 15C (59F in old money). We've had Northerly winds for weeks. With nothing between us here and the North ...

Man about the Howes - July 2021

Hello everyone. Happy new month. This summer here in Norfolk, I seem to have moaned about the weather every month! This month has been a little better, thank goodness. I didn't see about half of it, though. You may recall that a year ago, my younger son married in Massachusetts. Only eight people we...

Man about the House - June 2021

Hello everyone. Half the year has gone already, I'm afraid. For those of us North of the Equator, nights are drawing in already. Oh dear. England has many good things going for it, but summer here is so short. And the trend in Norfolk that I reported last month has continued: the wind continues to s...

Re: Man about the Hows - May2021

Further information about the puzzle over George William Howse: after a note from a correspondent late on Monday night, I spent a lot of time yesterday on his situation and was a able to find a LOT more. My theory about railway links to many his hotels seems to have been borne out (Folkestone, Lowes...

Re: Man about the Hows - May2021

We are already on the road to a solution! Thanks to a note from correspondent Deb McCleery, pointing out that George William Howse had been a Mason in Plymouth (Occ'n: hotel keeper), I then found him in another Lodge in Fleet Street, transferring in from the Plymouth Lodge, then suspended for non-pa...
