Life in a Northern Town

A crow's life...

  1. Crow's Trip Log

    JUNE 2009 - NOVEMBER 2017

    What a long strange trip it's been....

    This is a little experiment to see if I can set up an ongoing trip log, to keep a record of my canoe trips in one place and have links to pictures and blogs of them. Kind of an ongoing blog of blogs, or a "metablog" maybe. Well, it keeps me out of trouble on dark winter nights when there's ...

  3. A walk in Hulne Park - gothic tower and ducal graveyard

    Still no boating yet this year, but we did go for a walk yesterday. Mrs. Crow

  4. The Lazy Crow's Journal Digest

  5. Marmalade

    We have been making our year's supply of marmalade over the last few days. You need Seville oranges for this and they are only available for a few weeks in January each year, so it's now or never.

    The recipe varies each year, but it goes something like this:

    Seville Oranges - 3 lb 4 oz
    Sugar (Golden granulated or Demerara) - 6 lb 8 oz
