Tom & Mr Thomas

Tom_In_Oz_: OK to put you pic on blog? Also fixed a spelling error in your long tweet. Hope all is OK? Cheers, Tom.

Ianthomas74: @Tom_In_Oz_ I'm curious, what did I misspell in my lengthy tweet? I'm dyslexic and don't see what it.

Tom_In_Oz_: Just some capital letters.

Ianthomas74: @Tom_In_Oz_ No problem.

Press play:

Tom in Oz reporting from Heathfield Sussex. Today Mrs Oz and I spent time looking for headstones in snow, sleet and ice. We started at Heathfield (play video - I'm still wearing shorts and sandals without socks - I'm a real tough guy), then we slowly made our way to Catsfield and other small Sussex towns. We finished at Hastings then went along coast to Dover, stopping at many coastal villages. By the afternoon we were in Chartham Kent (near the city of Canterbury) looking for my ancestral line of Turner. George Turner, that was sent to Oz as a convict, was formerly a shepherd in Chartham Kent.

Above: Shepherd Neame / Royal Oak Inn near Chartham Kent. This is the area where my ancestor George Turner was a shepherd some 180 years ago.

We have just finished staying at Burwash Sussex. This is where writer Rudyard Kipling lived. Above is our Rudyard Kipling bedroom at Church House Burwash. We stay here when we are in the UK because artist Graham Sendall whose wife runs Church House has a fascinating collection of artworks. Most times we visit we buy something else for our collection. He is a devotee of the "pointillist" method. He regularly has showings in London.

Tomorrow 29th Nov 2010, Mrs Oz and I will be running a PowerPoint presentation for some schools in coastal Sussex about my UK convict ancestors relating to their impact on modern day Oz. In the evening I'm presenting a lecture at Hastings about Lifeboat Rescue Services....couldn't have more diverse interests if I tried! If the blog goes quiet tomorrow, you'll know why!
