The Eltham Murder- 1871

Below is an article I wrote for a number of different websites. It's the story of Jane Maria Clouson (occ. Clousen) who was my 1st Cousin- 4x removed.

Space: Above and Beyond

Lockdown 2020: Like many people I've spent a bit of time binge watching TV shows. Unlike some, I'm watching shows from the past that I enjoy. Much of modern TV doesn't appeal to me.

It's something I'm going to post about on here from time to time when I find something interesting. Today however I'd like to take a moment to remember the many... Continue Reading →

BSG Autographs

With my BSG re-watch now at an end (except for Caprica) I thought now might be a good time to put my BSG autographs up. I have two from the original show, those being Richard Hatch and Anne Lockhart. I also had Herb Jefferson Jr but can't find it. As for the re-imagined series, I... Continue Reading →

With the Covid-19 Pandemic still in full-flow around the globe, many celebrities have been finding ways to entertain themselves and us.
