I have been very busy recently but when I have time I sit and think about my genealogy web site, and sometimes I am moved to deposit some new material in it.
Recently Allen pointed out there was a leak in the page on the Tring Earth Closet and I have removed the broken link and added a new link for any environmentally friendly reader who want to make compost.
P.S. If you know where there is a surviving Victorian Tring-designed earth closet it might make a very practical addition to the local history museum.
