A small selection of posts I have enjoyed over the last few days and I hope you will head over to enjoy in full.. thanks Sally.
The first post today is from Robbie Cheadle and is a tribute to Remembrance Day.. Robbie is currently working on a project about the entrance of the USA into WW1 in April 1917. She shares an extract with us.
