Why don’t we sell used books for 1p?

Since we began selling pre-loved books and various other items on the miscellaneous section of the shop website, we have sometimes been asked why we don’t sell them for 1p? After all, some sellers on Amazon do this – just 1p for a book and (usually) £2.80 postage. So I would like to explain… Firstly, […]

Lions and all that…

The news this week has been full of the awful killing of Cecil the  Lion in ZImbabwe. And rightly so.  I mean the lion was protected, and there is something horrible about deliberately going after something that was never intended to be killed. That said, we are all responsible for killing on some scale every […]

The Cursing Psalms

People are often surprised to find there are curses in the Bible. When they do discover that there are, they expect to find them only in the Old Testament with its ‘eye for an eye’ approach. But actually they turn up in the New Testament too. In the Act, Peter’s rebuke kills both Ananias and […]

A curse by any other name….

Originally I was going to blog again about Glastonbury, but then I spotted this little story and it was just too good to miss. People who know I’m a witch tend to take it at face value whereas some, on learning it for the first time start panicking because they thing I might be about […]

Glastonbury Dreams

I will never forget the first time I saw Glastonbury Tor. I had just learned to drive, and it was one of my very first journeys. I took my parents out for the day and it was nerve wracking, especially trying to drive through Bristol (something I never, ever mastered). It was one of those […]

How to date a hedge

This is something I promised to post up when I was at the Artemis Gathering last weekend. The landscape can be very difficult to date, but there are some things, such as hedges, where a formula is available. The best thing about it is that you don’t even have to be able to identify all […]

Back from the Artemis Gathering

I attended the Artemis Gathering for a few hours yesterday, and it was wonderful. Mind you, I am paying dearly for it today. Very sore throat (all that talking!) and unbelievably tired and in pain. But it was a great experience – I wish I could have stayed to see the burning of the Wicker […]

Gardening… to make you think

This is such a lovely story that I found over on http://www.emmitsburg.net/humor/archives/gardening/gardening.htm One day God was talking to St. Francis about gardens: “Frank you know all about gardens and nature. What in the world is going on down there? What happened to the dandelions, violets, thistle and stuff I started eons ago? I had a […]

On Green Men, Gargoyles and other treasures – a fascinating site

The Green Man has always played a very important part in my life. My garden has a number of green man sculptures in it, along with other oddities, frogs, owls and dragons lurking in the shadows. For me they are the guardians of my garden,part of the magical world, and most importantly, they encourage the […]
