My mum used to work at Holloways. The son Percy ran it when she was there. Her boss was Mr Richardson. She worked in the bakery, which was downstairs. She learnt so much but most of all, during her lunch hours, she used to watch the baker icing celebration cakes. I grew up watching my mum ice cakes (royal icing) in our kitchen. She was a professional cake decorator for many years. What is your interest Peter Pan?

I remember going to a dance there I think it was run by the Tennis Club Which was all a bit up market from our normal Saturday night dance at the Town Hall with Ron Ansell and his band

After all the rationing of Wartime and a visit To Holloways Hotel was a delight it was to sit at a properly set table to enjoy a pot of Tea and Devon Doughnuts that were just brimming with real cream. Charge was Half A Crown!!!
Now the present. Having turned over to Montana State the square Section of
land 20 miles West from Billings..., I needed to vacate and bring home my vintage and sport car collection so down by aircraft and drive one car pull a trailer with another, lots of fun beats 'Top Gear'.

Just noticed. TP started "Quote of the Moment", although it's hard to understand what it's for. more
I like BONFIRE NIGHT, and of course all the out-meetings which go on around this time - and the loud bang at the crack of dawn!
