Back to the Future? 24th December



Merry Christmas to everybody except Larry, Barry and Harry (you know who you are and what you've done!) and Merry Christmas to your new committee member - we know who it is even before you do!!! On top of it all you didn't even send us a Christmas card!!

On this day, yes that's right on this day:
  • 1777 – Kiritimati, also called Christmas Island, is discovered by James Cook.
  • 1814 – The Treaty of Ghent is signed ending the War of 1812.
  • 1924 – Albania becomes a republic.
...and happy birthday to Lemmy out of Motorhead.

In Northern Ireland.....

1967 - A Long-tailed Duck was on Lower Lough Erne
